Novartis Drug Afinitor® Recommended by FDA Oncology Advisory Committee for Approval to Treat Advanced NET of Pancreatic Origin
Date:4/12/2011

limited treatment options(1,2,3).

Earlier this year, the FDA granted everolimus priority review designation for the application and proposed indication for the treatment of advanced NET of gastrointestinal (GI), lung or pancreatic origin. Based on feedback from the FDA, Novartis amended the proposed indication to focus on patients with one specific type of NET, advanced NET of pancreatic origin.

Priority review status is granted to therapies that offer major advances in treatment or provide a treatment where no adequate therapy exists. This status accelerates the standard review time from 10 to six months(8). There is the potential that the outcome of an ODAC meeting could result in the FDA extending the review period.

Worldwide regulatory filings for everolimus as a treatment for advanced NET of GI, lung or pancreatic origin are being reviewed by health authorities.

About pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (NET)Neuroendocrine tumors arise from cells that can produce and secrete a variety of hormones that regulate bodily functions(9). These tumors can occur anywhere in the body; however, most are found in the pancreas, gastrointestinal tract or lungs(7,10). Pancreatic NET, also known as islet cell tumors, is a rare type of cancer that is different from pancreatic exocrine cancer, generally referred to as pancreatic cancer(6,11). There are currently limited treatment options for pancreatic NET patients(3).

About RADIANT-3RADIANT-3 is a Phase III prospective, double-blind, randomized, parallel group, placebo-controlled, multicenter study. The trial examined the efficacy and safety of everolimus plus best supportive care (BSC) versus placebo plus BSC in 410 patients with advanced, low- or intermediate-grade pancreatic NET. Patients who met the study entry criteria were randomized 1:1 to receive either everolimus 10 mg once-daily (n=207) or daily placebo (n=203) orally, both in conjunction with BSC(1).
