Published:27th Feb 2023

Pfizer Inc. announced that the FDA has granted Priority Review for the company’s Biologics License Application (BLA) for elranatamab, an investigational B-cell maturation antigen (BCMA) CD3-targeted bispecific antibody (BsAb), for the treatment of patients with relapsed or refractory multiple myeloma (RRMM)

Priority Review is intended to direct attention and resources from regulatory authorities toward drugs that, if approved, could offer significant improvements over existing options for serious conditions in order to make these drugs available to patients faster. The FDA’s decision on the application is expected in 2023. The European Medicines Agency (EMA) has also accepted elranatamab’s marketing authorization application (MAA). The company is working closely with the EMA to facilitate their review and will provide updates on timing as appropriate.

The FDA and EMA have also granted elranatamab Fast Track Designation and the PRIME scheme, respectively, for the treatment of patients with RRMM. The UK Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) has granted elranatamab Innovative Medicine Designation and the Innovation Passport for the treatment of MM. The FDA has accepted elranatamab for Project ORBIS, which is a framework for the concurrent submission and review of oncology products to potentially expedite approvals in certain countries outside of the US; currently 5 countries (Switzerland, Brazil, Canada, Australia, and Singapore) have accepted to participate.
