September meeting to focus on use of Zevalin as consolidation therapy after

remission induction in previously untreated patients with follicular

lymphoma

SEATTLE, July 22 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Cell Therapeutics, Inc. (CTI) (Nasdaq and MTA: CTIC) announced today that the Company has scheduled a meeting with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in September to discuss the possibility of filing a supplemental Biologics License Application (sBLA) for use of Zevalin(R) ([90Y]-ibritumomab tiuxetan) as consolidation therapy after remission induction in previously untreated patients with follicular non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
