Novartis Pharmaceuticals Corporation Receives FDA Approval of Farydak

Novartis announced that the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved Farydak (panobinostat, previously known as LBH589) capsules in combination with bortezomib and dexamethasone for the treatment of patients with multiple myeloma who have received at least two prior regimens, including bortezomib and an immunomodulatory (IMiD) agent. Farydak has been shown to extend the progression-free survival (PFS) benefit of the standard-of-care therapy in this patient population. Farydak is approved under accelerated approval based on PFS. Continued approval for this indication may be contingent upon verification and description of clinical benefit in confirmatory trials. The FDA's accelerated approval program gives patients access to treatments for serious or life-threatening illnesses that provide meaningful therapeutic benefit over existing treatments. The FDA has approved a risk evaluation and mitigation strategy (REMS) for Farydak. The REMS program serves to inform and educate healthcare professionals about the risks that may be associated with Farydak treatment. This FDA approval is based on efficacy and safety data in a pre-specified subgroup analysis of 193 patients who had received prior treatment with both bortezomib and an IMiD during the Phase III, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, multicenter global registration trial, called PANORAMA-1.
