Priority Review Granted for Trabectedin in Advanced Soft-Tissue Sarcoma

Get Permission

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted Priority Review for the New Drug Application (NDA) for trabectedin to treat patients with advanced soft-tissue sarcoma, including liposarcoma and leiomyosarcoma subtypes, who have received prior chemotherapy including an anthracycline. The NDA for trabectedin was submitted to the FDA on November 24, 2014.

Trabectedin is a novel, multimodal, synthetically produced antitumor agent—originally derived from the sea squirt Ecteinascidia ­turbinata—that prevents tumor cells from ­multiplying.

The filing is based on the phase III randomized, open-label study ET743-SAR-3007. This trial is evaluating the safety and efficacy of trabectedin vs dacarbazine for the treatment of patients with advanced liposarcoma and leiomyosarcoma. Results will be presented at a later date. ■
