The filing is based on data from the landmark Phase III VISTA trial. The FDA granted the sNDA priority review and a decision is expected by June 20, 2008. VELCADE is currently the market leader in relapsed multiple myeloma and the only drug approved for the treatment of relapsed mantle cell lymphoma.
