Chi-Med Announces NDA Acceptance in China for Surufatinib in Non-Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors

LONDON, Nov. 11, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Hutchison China MediTech Limited (“Chi-Med”) (AIM/Nasdaq: HCM) today announces that its New Drug Application (“NDA”) for surufatinib for the treatment of patients with advanced non-pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (“NET”) has been accepted for review by the China National Medical Products Administration.
The NDA is supported by data from the successful SANET-ep study, a Phase III study of surufatinib in advanced neuroendocrine tumors – extra-pancreatic patients in China for whom there is no effective therapy. The positive results of this trial were highlighted in an oral presentation at the 2019 European Society for Medical Oncology Congress on September 29, 2019.Christian Hogg, Chief Executive Officer of Chi-Med commented, “This NDA filing puts us on track for the potential approval and launch of surufatinib in China, an important development for NET patients with limited treatment options. In order to maximize patient access to surufatinib upon regulatory approval, we are now building our own dedicated commercial oncology organization and expect to be ready to cover all relevant hospitals and clinics in China at the time of launch.”“We believe surufatinib has robust efficacy, tolerability and combinability with a dual angio-immuno kinase inhibition profile, which may make it an attractive treatment in China,” Mr. Hogg added. Chi-Med currently retains all worldwide rights to surufatinib. Surufatinib is under investigation in multiple solid tumors in China, the U.S. and Europe, both as a monotherapy and in combination with immunotherapies.Surufatinib is Chi-Med’s second in-house discovered novel oncology drug to reach NDA submission in China, following the launch of fruquintinib last year for colorectal cancer under the brand name Elunate®.About Neuroendocrine Tumors (NET)
