 BeiGene, Ltd. (NASDAQ: BGNE; HKEX: 06160), a global biotechnology company focused on developing and commercializing innovative medicines worldwide, today announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has accepted a supplemental new drug application (sNDA) for BRUKINSA® (zanubrutinib) for the treatment of adult patients with marginal zone lymphoma (MZL) who have received at least one prior anti-CD20-based therapy and granted priority review. The Prescription Drug User Fee Act (PDUFA) target action date is September 19, 2021. “This is our first regulatory submission in MZL, a serious disease diagnosed in more than 2,000 patients every year in the U.S., with no clear standard of care. In clinical trials, BRUKINSA has demonstrated promising efficacy and tolerability in MZL and presents a potential new option for MZL patients,” said Jane Huang, M.D., Chief Medical Officer, Hematology at BeiGene. “We look forward to continuing our communications with the FDA in the coming months as we work on advancing the broad global development program for our potentially best-in-class BTK inhibitor.”
