– Priority Review Granted with Action Date of August 17 –
– Australia and Canada Regulators Will Review Applications as Part of FDA’s Project Orbis
Seagen Inc. and Astellas Pharma Inc. announced the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) filed two supplemental Biologics License Application (sBLA) submissions for PADCEV® (enfortumab vedotin-ejfv) for review as part of the Real-Time Oncology Review (RTOR) pilot program. The applications were granted Priority Review, with a target action date of August 17, 2021. The review of both applications will also be conducted under Project Orbis, an initiative of the FDA Oncology Center of Excellence.
The FDA’s RTOR program aims to explore a more efficient review process to ensure that safe and effective treatments are available to patients as early as possible. Project Orbis provides a framework for concurrent submission and review of oncology drugs among participating international partners.
The first sBLA is based on the phase 3 EV-301 trial and seeks to convert PADCEV’s accelerated approval to regular approval.
The second sBLA, based on the pivotal trial EV-201’s cohort 2, requests an expansion of the current indication to include patients with locally advanced or metastatic urothelial cancer who have been previously treated with a programmed death receptor-1 (PD-1) or programmed death-ligand 1 (PD-L1) inhibitor and are ineligible for cisplatin.
