In 2014, brigatinib received a Breakthrough Therapy designation from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of patients with ALK+ NSCLC who are resistant to crizotinib, and the company initiated a pivotal Phase 2 trial in these patients. The company is focused on securing a co-development and co-commercialization partnership for brigatinib. AP32788 is an internally discovered drug candidate. In 2014, the company nominated AP32788 for clinical development. The company is conducting studies necessary to support the filing of an investigational new drug application (IND).
