European Medicines Agency's Committee For Medicinal Products For Human Use Issues Positive Opinion For Conditional Approval On Marketing Authorization Application For Pixuvri™
Date:2/17/2012

Coiffier, M.D., Ph.D., Professor of Hematology at the Department of Hematology, Hospices Civils de Lyon and the University Lyon 1 in Lyon, France.  

Similar to accelerated approval regulations in the United States, conditional marketing authorizations are granted to medicinal products with a positive benefit/risk assessment that address unmet medical needs and whose availability would result in a significant public health benefit. A conditional marketing authorization is renewable annually. Under the provisions of the conditional marketing authorization for Pixuvri, CTI will be required to complete a post-marketing study aimed at confirming the clinical benefit previously observed.

The CHMP has accepted PIX306, CTI's ongoing randomized controlled phase 3 clinical trial, which compares Pixuvri-rituximab to gemcitabine-rituximab in 2nd line patients with aggressive B‑cell NHL who failed front-line CHOP-R and who are not eligible for autologous stem cell transplant ("ASCT") or as 3rd or 4th line therapy in aggressive B-cell NHL. As a condition of approval, CTI has agreed to have available the PIX306 clinical trial results by June 2015.

The World Health Organization's International Agency for Research on Cancer's 2008 GLOBOCAN database most recent estimates state that in European Union approximately 74,162 people will be diagnosed with NHL and 31,371 are estimated to die from NHL e
