Incyte has announced that the FDA has accepted its New Drug Application (NDA) for parsaclisib, an investigational novel potent, highly selective, next-generation oral inhibitor of phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase delta (PI3K?), for the treatment of patients with relapsed or refractory follicular lymphoma (FL), marginal zone lymphoma (MZL) and mantle cell lymphoma (MCL).

The submission is based on data from several Phase II studies (CITADEL-203, -204 and -205) evaluating parsaclisib as a treatment for relapsed or refractory non-Hodgkin lymphomas (NHLs) (FL, MZL and MCL). Parsaclisib was generally well-tolerated in all studies with a manageable safety profile.

Parsaclisib has been granted Priority Review by the FDA for the treatment of adult patients with relapsed or refractory MZL who have received at least one prior anti-CD20-based regimen and for the treatment of adult patients with MCL who have received at least one prior therapy. The FDA grants Priority Review to medicines that, if approved, would be significant improvements in the safety or effectiveness of the treatment, diagnosis or prevention of serious conditions when compared to standard applications. This designation shortens the review period by four months as compared to Standard Review so the Prescription Drug User Fee Act (PDUFA) target action date for these indications is April 30, 2022.

The NDA for use of parsaclisib in adult patients with relapsed or refractory follicular lymphoma (FL) who have received at least two prior systemic therapies will have a Standard Review and a PDUFA target action date of August 30, 2022. Confirmatory phase III studies are in preparation for parsaclisib in patients with MCL (CITADEL-310) and relapsed or refractory FL and MZL (CITADEL-302).

About CITADEL: The CITADEL (Clinical Investigation of TArgeted PI3K-DELta Inhibition in Lymphomas) clinical trial program is evaluating parsaclisib in several ongoing studies as a treatment for adult patients with lymphomas, including: CITADEL-203 (NCT03126019) is evaluating patients with relapsed or refractory follicular lymphoma (FL) Grade 1, 2 or 3a who received at least two prior systemic therapies, had an Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group performance status (ECOG PS) less than 2, and were ineligible for hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT). CITADEL-204 (NCT03144674) is evaluating patients with relapsed or refractory marginal zone lymphoma (MZL) who received at least one prior systemic therapy and were Bruton’s tyrosine kinase (BTK) inhibitor treatment naive. Patients with prior ibrutinib treatment were initially allowed to enroll; however, the cohort was terminated due to slow enrollment. Eligible patients had radiologically measurable lymphadenopathy or extranodal lymphoid malignancy (or histologically confirmed bone marrow infiltration in cases of splenic MZL), and an ECOG PS less than 2. CITADEL-205 (NCT03235544) is evaluating patients with relapsed or refractory mantle cell lymphoma (MCL), who received one to three prior systemic therapies and were either naive to or were previously treated with a BTK inhibitor. Eligible patients had an ECOG PS less than 2, and radiologically measurable lymphadenopathy or extranodal lymphoid malignancy. Patients eligible for each trial were allocated to receive parsaclisib 20 mg once daily for eight weeks followed by either 20 mg once weekly (weekly-dosing group [WG]) or 2.5 mg once daily (daily-dosing group [DG]). Subsequently, daily dosing was selected as the preferred regimen and the WG patients were allowed to switch to DG. Prophylaxis for Pneumocystis jirovecii pneumonia (PJP) was required.
