IOVA provided an update
In a recent update, IOVA stated that the first quarter of 2023 is the anticipated completion date for its continued rolling Biologics License Application (BLA) submission for lifileucel to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). IOVA recently received FDA input about further assay validation data and comparability data for lifileucel as part of an update to the current investigational new drug application (IND) filed during the third quarter of 2022.
The first quarter of 2023 will now see the completion of IOVA’s rolling BLA filing once it swiftly responds to these FDA objections. Lifileucel is an experimental tumor-infiltrating lymphocyte (TIL) treatment for patients with advanced (unresectable or metastatic) melanoma who progressed during or following previous anti-PD-1/L1 therapy and, where necessary, targeted BRAF/MEK inhibitor therapy. In this therapeutic environment, there are no FDA-approved treatments.
What further efforts does IOVA make?
With its continuing BLA filing, Iovance Biotherapeutics (IOVA) has made significant advancements and is almost finished. The FDA continues to support the IND application during the rolling BLA filing process and recently gave insightful input to the IND application. IOVA pledged to get FDA clearance as quickly as possible in order to provide the first customized, one-time cell treatment to patients with advanced melanoma, who have a critical unmet medical need.
