Cell Therapeutics to Re-submit Pixantrone NDA in Consideration for Accelerated Approval in Accordance with Guidance from FDA's Office of New Drugs
Date:5/2/2011

SEATTLE, May 3, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Cell Therapeutics, Inc. ("CTI") (NASDAQ and MTA: CTIC) today announced that the Office of New Drugs (the "OND") of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (the "FDA") after carefully reviewing the materials CTI submitted in support of its appeal, the reviews of the New Drug Application (the "NDA") for pixantrone prepared by the FDA staff, the transcript of the March 22, 2010 Oncology Drugs Advisory Committee meeting and consulting with the Center for Drug Evaluation and Research's (the "CDER") Deputy Director of Clinical Science and the Office of Biostatistics, concluded that accelerated approval of pixantrone NDA 022481 may not necessarily be out of reach based on a single controlled clinical trial, provided two key matters can be satisfactorily resolved. First, the submission of information regarding the circumstances surrounding the decision of stopping the trial early to assure that ongoing results assessment were not dictating the decision to stop and, second, ascertainment of the soundness of the primary endpoint after an additional independent radiologic review.  If these two key matters are addressed satisfactorily, then PIX301 could be deemed successful, having achieved its primary and secondary endpoints and a re-review of safety and efficacy would be warranted.

OND denied the dispute appeal request to conclude that the efficacy of pixantrone has been demonstrated, but disagreed with the conclusion in the Complete Response Letter that PIX301 was a failed study, which warranted application of an interim analysis statistical thresholds.

"We are gratified and excited that based on a thorough review of our appeal arguments and NDA review that OND provided us the opportunity to re-submit the NDA for re-review and importantly that an additional clinical trial would not necessarily be required for accelerated approval should the two key matters raised be addressed satisfactorily," said James A. Bianco
