Y-mAbs’ 177Lu-omburtamab-DTPA for the Treatment of Patients with Medulloblastoma Granted Rare Pediatric Disease Designation by FDA
177Lu-omburtamab-DTPA, a monoclonal B7-H3 antibody that has been radiolabeled with lutetium-177, is currently in a multicenter Phase 1 clinical trial in pediatric patients with refractory medulloblastoma, and in a multicenter Phase 1 clinical trial targeting B7-H3 positive CNS/LM tumors in adults. We believe that both indications address clear unmet medical needs.
“The RPDD makes us eligible for a Priority Review Voucher (“PRV”) upon potential approval of the biologics license application for this rare pediatric cancer. Among our leading compounds under development, four now have RPDDs, and this designation for 177Lu-omburtamab-DTPA further increase our chances of ultimately receiving multiple PRVs,” said
Y-mAbs is a commercial-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on the development and commercialization of novel, antibody-based therapeutic products for the treatment of cancer. The Company has a broad and advanced product pipeline, including one FDA approved product, DANYELZA® (naxitamab-gqgk), which targets tumors that express GD2, and one pivotal-stage product candidate, omburtamab, which targets tumors that express B7-H3.
