Celgene International Sarl Key Developments
Italian Authorities Approves Celgene International Sarl's ABRAXANE, as a First-Line Treatment of Adult Patients with Metastatic Pancreatic Cancer
Feb 24 15
Celgene International Sarl announced that Italian authorities have issued a positive decision for NHS reimbursement of ABRAXANE® (paclitaxel formulated as albumin-bound nanoparticles, or nab-paclitaxel) in combination with gemcitabine, for the first-line treatment of patients with metastatic adenocarcinoma of the pancreas, or pancreatic cancer. For the first time in this disease, the Italian Medicines Agency (AIFA) has recognised the important innovation that ABRAXANE brings as a therapeutic treatment for pancreatic cancer. The reimbursement decision has been published in the Italian Official Gazette no. 30, dated 6 February 2015, and it follows the December 2013European Commission (EC) approval of ABRAXANE for this indication. ABRAXANE has been available and reimbursed in Italy for the treatment of metastatic breast cancer since 2011. During the last few decades, little progress has been made in improving outcomes for patients diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. The mortality of pancreatic cancer is high, making it the fourth deadliest cancer for both men and women.1 Patients diagnosed with metastatic disease have a median life expectancy, after diagnosis, of approximately three to six months. There have been no new medications approved for pancreatic cancer in eight years.
European Commission Approves REVLIMID (lenalidomide) for the Treatment of Adult Patients
Feb 20 15
Celgene International Sarl a wholly owned subsidiary of Celgene Corporation announced that the European Commission (EC) has approved REVLIMID (lenalidomide) for the treatment of adult patients with previously untreated multiple myeloma who are not eligible for transplant. The REVLIMID Marketing Authorisation has been updated to include this new indication in multiple myeloma, building upon the already approved indication of REVLIMID in combination with dexamethasone for the treatment of multiple myeloma in adult patients who have received at least one prior therapy. The EC decision in newly diagnosed multiple myeloma was based on the results of two pivotal studies: MM-020 (also known as the FIRST trial) and MM-015.
Celgene Announces Positive Recommendation by Scottish Medicines Consortium for ABRAXANE
Feb 10 15
Celgene International Sarl announced that ABRAXANE® (paclitaxel formulated as albumin-bound nanoparticles; nab-paclitaxel), in combination with gemcitabine, has now received a positive recommendation for the treatment of metastatic pancreatic cancer by the Scottish Medicines Consortium (SMC) within the National Health Service Scotland.1 The decision follows the recent NHS England announcement to defer their review of ABRAXANE® for metastatic pancreatic cancer, allowing the treatment to remain on the National Cancer Drugs Fund (NCDF) list until a final decision is made. The mortality of pancreatic cancer is high, making it the fourth deadliest cancer for both men and women across the European Union. Patients diagnosed with metastatic disease have a median life expectancy, after diagnosis, of approximately two to six months. In the UK, pancreatic cancer is the fifth most common cancer killer with approximately 8,800 new cases diagnosed each year. In Scotland an estimated 770 new patients are diagnosed and over 740 die from the disease each year.
