Cell Therapeutics Announces FDA's Oncologic Drugs Advisory Committee to Review Pixantrone for the Treatment of Relapsed/Refractory Aggressive Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma, February 10, 2010
Date:12/16/2009

SEATTLE, Dec. 17 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Cell Therapeutics, Inc. (CTI) (Nasdaq and MTA: CTIC) announced today that on February 10, 2010 the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's Oncologic Drugs Advisory Committee (ODAC) will review the New Drug Application (NDA) for pixantrone for the treatment of relapsed/refractory aggressive non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL). ODAC is an independent panel of experts that evaluates data concerning the efficacy and safety of marketed and investigational products for use in the treatment of cancer and makes appropriate recommendations to the FDA. The FDA regulations indicate that although the FDA will consider the recommendation of the panel, the final decision regarding the approval of the product is made by the FDA.

"The upcoming ODAC meeting is a very important milestone in the NDA review process and we look forward to discussing the efficacy and safety data for pixantrone with the members of the panel and the FDA review team," stated James A. Bianco, M.D., CEO of CTI. "As there are no other drugs currently approved in this setting, we believe that pixantrone would fulfill a significant unmet medical need for patients with relapsed/refractory aggressive NHL."

At the ODAC meeting, committee members evaluate presentations of efficacy and safety data made by the pharmaceutical sponsor of the drug under review, FDA review staff, and occasionally third-party oncology experts in an open forum. Following the presentation, the committee members discuss questions posed by the Agency review staff and the meeting concludes with the committee voting on a recommendation to the FDA regarding approval.

Pixantrone is a fast track designated product which has been accepted for review by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA), with a Prescription Drug User Fee Act (PDUFA) date of April 23, 2010.
