Written by | 9 Feb 2024 | Oncology

Bristol Myers Squibb announced three regulatory acceptances from the FDA and Japan’s Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare (MHLW) for Breyanzi (lisocabtagene maraleucel)

In the U.S., the FDA has accepted the company’s two supplemental Biologics License Applications (sBLA) for Breyanzi to expand into new indications to include the treatment of adult patients with relapsed or refractory follicular lymphoma (FL) and relapsed or refractory mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) after a Bruton tyrosine kinase inhibitor (BTKi). The FDA has granted both applications Priority Review and assigned a Prescription Drug User Fee Act (PDUFA) goal date of May 23, 2024 for Breyanzi in relapsed or refractory FL and May 31, 2024 for Breyanzi in relapsed or refractory MCL.

Japan’s MHLW has also accepted Bristol Myers Squibb’s supplemental New Drug Application (sNDA) for Breyanzi for the treatment of relapsed or refractory FL.

“Patients living with follicular lymphoma and mantle cell lymphoma often experience cycles of remission and relapse with multiple lines of treatment, and we are committed to delivering innovative treatment solutions to this population,” said Anne Kerber, M.D., senior vice president, Head of Late Clinical Development, Hematology, Oncology, Cell Therapy (HOCT), Bristol Myers Squibb. “Breyanzi offers the potential for durable response, and these filing acceptances in the U.S. and Japan support our commitment to delivering our best-in-class CAR T cell therapy treatments to as many eligible patients as possible.”
