Seattle Genetics announced today that the FDA had accepted its BLA on its antibody drug conjugate (ADC), SGN-35 or brentuximab vedotin, for the treatment of Hodgkin's disease and anaplastic large cell lymphoma. This is good news for Seattle Genetics and the patients with these two diseases.
SGN-35 will now receive a review date from the agency by August 30th. This new type of therapy for cancer is expected to pass muster at that time and would be the first ADC approved.
