The European Medicine’s Agency has accepted for regulatory review, two of Pfizer’s cancer therapies. The first is an oral first-in-class anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) inhibitor, crizotinib, for the treatment of patients with previously treated ALK-positive advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). The second product is bosutinib for the treatment of adult patients with newly diagnosed Philadelphia chromosome positive (Ph+) chronic myeloid leukaemia (CML) in the chronic phase.
