Vanda And Nektar Persevere With Fanapt And Onzeald In EU
The two products that the European Medicines Agency’s key scientific committee, the CHMP, decided last week should not be approved in the EU were Vanda’s schizophrenia treatment Fanaptum (iloperidone), and Onzeald (etirinotecan pegol), a potentially new treatment for breast cancer with brain metastases from Nektar/Daiichi Sankyo Europe. The companies want the CHMP to look again at the negative opinions they received.
