Interventional Oncology LEGACY Study
The LEGACY study is a robust multicenter study confirming TheraSphere as a neoadjuvant or standalone therapy in treating HCC.*
Included 162 consecutive treated patients with HCC | Presented by Riad Salem, MD at CIRCE 2020.
Exceeding the Standards of Care
"We studied Y-90 in HCC patients at all stages of the disease and we found that it was either equal to or better than the current standards of care but providing a much more gentle treatment for patients. And that was enough to seal the deal."
- Riad Salem, MD an Interventional Radiologist at Northwestern Memorial Hospital
To assess local tumor control and duration of response following treatment with Y-90 glass microspheres in patients with unrespectable solitary HCC lesions.
Key Study Results
93% overall survival rate in patients with transplant or resection following TheraSphere at 3 years.
(Best Response in evaluable population, localized mRECIST)
Multi-center, single-arm, retrospective study conducted at 3 U.S. sites.** Consecutive patients meeting the eligibility criteria were treated with TheraSphere Y-90 Glass Microspheres at each site between January 2014 and December 2017.
First and Only:
- Used highly clinically relevant criteria for localized tumor control (mRECIST)
- Reported a median dose to perfused liver volume of 410 Gy
- Demonstrated 100% of patients achieved CR or PR (localized mRECIST)
Key Eligibility Criteria:
Unresectable solitary lesions (≤ 8 cm); Selective, lobar, or mixed administration of Y-90 glass microspheres (TheraSphere); Treatment purpose (neoadjuvant to transplantation or resection or stand-alone treatment); Child-Pugh score A; BCLC A or BCLC C (ECOG 1); No prior liver transplantation, resection, locoregional treatment or systemic therapy; No portal vein thrombosis or extrahepatic disease.
Primary Study Endpoints Were Met
Determined by Blinded Independent Central Review (BICR)
|Safety: Majority of adverse events were mild and resolved without medical intervention.|
LEGACY STUDY CONCLUSION:
LEGACY is the first multicenter study to report a high median perfused volume absorbed dose of 410 Gy with TheraSphere, which resulted in an 88% best response, excellent and durable tumor control and high overall survival rate in patients with early and advanced HCC.
