Y-mAbs Announces Submission of Naxitamab Biologics License Application to U.S. FDA

On April 01, 2020, Y-mAbs announced that the Company has completed the submission of its Biologics License Application (“BLA”) under the FDA’s Rolling Review process for naxitamab after market close on March 31, 2020. Naxitamab is an investigational, monoclonal antibody that targets GD2. The naxitamab BLA is for the treatment of patients with relapsed/refractory high-risk neuroblastoma. The submission is based on the safety and efficacy results of the pivotal Phase 2 studies 201 and 12-230, which the Company expects to present at a venue later this year.

“As the father of a long-term high-risk neuroblastoma survivor, I am excited to see Y-mAbs first BLA submission in neuroblastoma completed. We believe this is a key milestone for families facing high-risk neuroblastoma and for Y-mAbs. We are very grateful to all our employees, consultants and clinical sites involved in developing naxitamab,” stated Thomas Gad, Founder, Chairman, President and Head of Business Development and Strategy.

Dr. Claus Moller, Chief Executive Officer, continued, “With this submission, we look forward to working with the Agency to bring naxitamab to appropriate patients. We are excited to complete this submission and believe naxitamab can address a significant unmet medical need for children with relapsed/refractory high-risk neuroblastoma.”
