Global Pharmacovigilance and Epidemiology
AN OPEN-LABEL, RANDOMIZED, MULTICENTER PHASE III TRIAL OF
DASATINIB (SPRYCEL) VERSUS STANDARD DOSE IMATINIB (400 MG)
IN THE TREATMENT OF SUBJECTS WITH NEWLY DIAGNOSED CHRONIC
PHASE PHILADELPHIA CHROMOSOME POSITIVE CHRONIC MYELOID
Reportable Event: Protein-losing gastroenteropathy (onset date: 12-Jun-2008)
Manufacturer Receipt Date: 15-Oct-2008 through 22-Oct-2008
Serious Criteria: Important Medical Event
A clinical investigator reported that a 57-year-old female patient experienced the
important medical event of protein losing enteropathy (grade 2) while enrolled in a
clinical trial for the treatment of patients with newly diagnosed chronic phase
Philadelphia chromosome positive chronic myeloid leukemia. The patient received oral
dasatinib (100 mg daily) starting on 21-Dec-2007. The study medication was interrupted due
After the third month (date not specified), the patient developed diarrhea and
hypoalbuminemia with edema that was initially reported as clinical grade 2 colitis. On
12-Jun-2008, upper and lower gastrointestinal endoscopy was done. The gastric biopsy
revealed that there was "no Helicobacter pylori visualized formally" (immunohistochemistry
test was negative was H. pylori). The duodenal biopsy was normal with the absence of
Giardia. The biopsy of the transverse colon revealed "lymphoplasmacyte infiltration of the
colic mucosa apparently reactionary, inflammatory". Immunohistochemistry examination was
negative for lymphoma. On 30-Jun-2008 and on 11-Sep-2008, the patient’s stool was negative
for albumin and the stool culture showed normal flora. On 22-Sep-2008, the serum albumin
level was 2.9 g/dL (normal range is 3.5 to 5.2 g/dL). On 26-Sep-2008, single photon
emission computed tomography (SPECT) test was done and confirmed exudative
It was reported that clinically, the patient was "not helped" by mebeverine, hyoscine
butylbromide, and ibuprofen. Protein losing enteropathy did not resolve at the time of the
There was no relevant medical history or concomitant medications reported for this
patient. There was no new concomitant medication introduced recently.
Investigator causality assessment: Protein losing enteropathy was probably related to
BMS causality assessment: Protein losing enteropathy was possibly related to dasatinib
This patient experienced diarrhea/colitis and hypoalbuminemia approximately 3 months
after the initiation of dasatinib therapy for CML, which was later confirmed as
protein-losing gastroenteropathy. Diagnostic test results were negative for lymphoma and
infection; however, there was inflammation reported in the colonic mucosa. The patient’s
medical history and concomitant medications are non-significant. In the absence of an
alternate explanation, the event of protein-losing gastroenteropathy is considered
possibly related to dasatinib therapy.
Contextual Statement (Protein-losing gastroenteropathy): As of 23-Oct-2008 approximately
2,786 subjects have received dasatinib in BMS sponsored blinded/open-label clinical
trials. To date, this is the first report of protein-losing gastroenteropathy in the
dasatinib serious adverse event database.
