Y-mAbs Announces FDA Acceptance of Biologics License Application for OMBLASTYS® (omburtamab) for the Treatment of Neuroblastoma for Priority Review
“We believe that the FDA’s acceptance of our OMBLASTYS® BLA for priority review is a significant achievement for Y-mAbs and a crucial step forward as we anticipate that OMBLASTYS, if approved by the FDA, can address a significant unmet medical need for children with CNS/leptomeningeal metastasis from high-risk neuroblastoma, where no standard therapy currently exists, potentially adding a second rare disease product to our commercial portfolio and without any significant further investment in our existing commercial infrastructure. Further, OMBLASTYS® has a Rare Pediatric Disease Designation which, if approved, will provide Y-mAbs with a Priority Review Voucher, our second PRV, which would further strengthen our financial position as we would seek to monetize the OMBLASTYS® PRV,” stated
Y-mAbs is a commercial-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on the development and commercialization of novel, antibody-based therapeutic cancer products.
