Incyte and MorphoSys AG announced the validation of the European Marketing Authorization Application (MAA) for tafasitamab, an anti-CD19 antibody.

The validation of the MAA by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) confirms that the submission is ready to enter the formal review.The MAA, submitted by MorphoSys, is based on data from the L-MIND study evaluating tafasitamab in combination with lenalidomide as a treatment for patients with r/r DLBCL; and is supported by the Re-MIND study, an observational retrospective study in r/r DLBCL. If approved, Incyte will hold the marketing authorization, and has exclusive commercialization rights for tafasitamab outside of the United States, including Europe.
