Janssen Submits Supplemental Biologics License Application to U.S. FDA Seeking Approval of RYBREVANT (amivantamab-vmjw) Plus Chemotherapy for the Treatment of Patients with EGFR-Mutated Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer Who Progressed on or after Osimertinib

The Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson announced the submission of a supplemental Biologics License Application (sBLA) to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) seeking the approval of RYBREVANT (amivantamab-vmjw) in combination with chemotherapy (carboplatin and pemetrexed) for the treatment of patients with locally advanced or metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) with epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) exon 19 deletions (ex19del) or L858R substitution after disease progression on or after osimertinib.

“New treatment options are urgently needed in the post-osimertinib setting, where patients continue to face unacceptable survival rates,” said Kiran Patel, M.D., Vice President, Clinical Development, Solid Tumors, Janssen Research & Development, LLC. “As we strive to transform the standard of care in patients with EGFR-mutated NSCLC, we are committed to working closely with the FDA during review of this submission for RYBREVANT in this expanded patient population.”

This application is supported by data from the Phase 3 MARIPOSA-2 (NCT04988295) study evaluating the efficacy and safety of RYBREVANT and chemotherapy in patients with locally advanced or metastatic EGFR ex19del or L858R substitution NSCLC who had disease progression on or after treatment with osimertinib.

Results from the MARIPOSA-2 study were recently presented in a Presidential Symposium at the European Society of Medical Oncology (ESMO) 2023 Congress (Abstract #LBA15) and simultaneously published in the Annals of Oncology.
