FDA Approves Abraxane Combo, Celgene Could See Revenue Boost
The FDA has approved a new indication for Celgene’s Abraxane in combo with carboplatin as a first-line treatment for locally advanced or metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) for patients who can’t undergo surgery or radiation therapy. The new approval comes after a Phase III study showed the drug combo did better than paclitaxel in combination with carboplatin. Abraxane (paclitaxel) is already approved to treat metastatic breast cancer in patients who failed chemotherapy.
