Accelerated Approval: US FDA Panel To Reconsider Six Indications For Checkpoint Inhibitors

Executive Summary

Oncologic Drugs Advisory Committee will meet for three days in April to consider whether indications for Tecentriq, Keytruda and Opdivo should remain on label despite failure to confirm clinical benefit; review is part of the Oncology Center of Excellence’s ‘industry-wide evaluation’ of accelerated approvals, which has led to withdrawals of four other PD-1/L-1 inhibitor claims.
