3 Giant Cell Tumor of Bone (GCTB) Locally aggressive, destructive primary bone tumorCauses pain and swelling and impairs mobility and function1No standard or approved medicinal therapySurgical intervention often associated with significant morbidity2Mendenhall WM, et al.

4 Denosumab in GCTBGCTB stromal cells, thought to be the neoplastic component of GCTB, express high levels of RANK ligand (RANKL) that stimulate the formation of RANK-positive tumor giant cells from RANK-positive osteoclast precursors.1-6High levels of RANKL also stimulate giant cell activation and survival and tumor-induced bone lysis.3-5Denosumab is a fully human monoclonal antibody against RANKL.6Denosumab inhibits bone destruction by preventing RANKL-mediated formation, activation, and survival of osteoclast-like giant cells.5Atkins GJ, et al..

5 ObjectivesTo evaluate the safety profile of denosumab in patients with GCTB treated with denosumabTo evaluate time to disease progression in patients with unsalvageable GCTBTo evaluate the proportion of denosumab-treated patients with salvageable GCTB who do not require surgery, for whom surgery is delayed, or who are able to undergo a less morbid surgeryThis prespecified interim analysis includes all eligible patients enrolled between September 9, 2008 and March 25, 2011 (the analysis cut-off date)Additional results from this study are being presented in posters at CTOS:Results of independent imaging assessments (poster 144)Effects of denosumab on pain and analgesic use (poster 143)

16 SummaryThe safety profile of denosumab in these patients with GCTB was consistent with that observed in other denosumab trials; no new risks were observedONJ and hypocalcemia, known risks of denosumab, were observed at a low rate consistent with that seen in other studies96% of Cohort 1 patients had no disease progression at any time on study, as determined by the investigatorOf 100 patients for whom surgery was planned:74 had no surgery16 of 26 had less morbid surgeries than plannedDenosumab delayed disease progression, prolonged the time to surgery, and reduced the need for morbid surgery in most patients, representing a potential new treatment option for patients with GCTB
