AstraZeneca: ovarian cancer drug Lynparza approved in China
(CercleFinance.com) - AstraZeneca said on Thursday that Lynparza has been approved in China as a first-line maintenance therapy in BRCA-mutated advanced ovarian cancer.
The approval is based on the results from a Phase III trial that showed that Lynparza significantly reduced the risk of disease progression or death by 70% versus placebo.
In 2017, AstraZeneca and US partner Merck announced a global strategic oncology collaboration to jointly develop and market Lynparza.
