Submission

SEATTLE, Sept. 22 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Cell Therapeutics, Inc. (CTI) (Nasdaq: CTICD and MTA: CTIC) announced today that following a meeting with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) data from the First-line Indolent Trial (FIT) would be sufficient to support a submission for a supplemental Biologics License Application (sBLA).

The Company plans to submit the sBLA in the fourth quarter and request priority review, which if granted, would result in a six month review period.

"We are pleased with the collegial interaction with the FDA and their guidance on our plan for submitting the FIT trial results to expand the Zevalin label," said James A. Bianco, M.D., CEO of Cell Therapeutics. "Label expansion for first-line indication would make this important treatment option available to the tens of thousands of patients who may benefit."

Zevalin is currently approved in the United States for the treatment of patients with relapsed or refractory, low-grade or follicular B-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL), including patients with rituximab refractory follicular NHL.
