Spectrum Pharmaceuticals and Cell Therapeutics to Jointly Market ZEVALIN, a Proprietary, Marketed Oncology Drug
Date:11/26/2008

fective in treating indolent NHL. Although approved by the FDA in 2002, its potential has not been fully realized. We are proud to partner with Cell Therapeutics, which over the past year has made great headway toward removing many of the obstacles that have kept this important drug from patients that could benefit from it. There are approximately one thousand patients currently receiving ZEVALIN treatments for refractory indolent NHL, generating approximately $15 million in annual sales. If approved for first line consolidation therapy in indolent NHL, we estimate that an additional 18,000 patients per year would be eligible to receive ZEVALIN in this setting. We assembled an experienced sales force, comprised of individuals with established track records of success, to launch our recently approved drug FUSILEV. ZEVALIN represents a complementary product that our sales force can provide to their accounts."

"This partnership is especially important as we hope to move toward use of ZEVALIN in first-line consolidation treatment of indolent NHL patients, which would significantly expand the available patient population," said James A. Bianco, M.D., CEO of Cell Therapeutics. "This partnership will enable CTI to deploy a larger combined sales and marketing team to accelerate top-line product revenues in the near-term and reduce our costs to develop ZEVALIN for new growth opportunities, resulting in an increase in CTI's bottom-line overall. Spectrum has a wealth of experience in the field of oncology, including the sales and marketing leadership that oversaw the successful launch of Abraxane(R) and Xeloda(R). We believe the Spectrum partnership allows us to better serve patients and capitalize on the growing recognition of ZEVALIN's effectiveness in patients with indolent NHL, while at the same time provide a significant return on investment for our shareholders."
