During the quarter, the
U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved an additional indication for IMBRUVICA® (ibrutinib) for first-line treatment of chronic lymphocytic leukemia. The Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP) issued a positive opinion recommending a conditional marketing authorization in the European Union for first-in-class CD38 immunotherapy DARZALEX® (daratumumab), for the treatment of patients with multiple myeloma, as well as a positive opinion recommending marketing authorization for TREVICTA® (paliperidone palmitate a 3-monthly injection) for the maintenance treatment of schizophrenia.
In April, subsequent to the first quarter, a worldwide collaboration and license agreement was entered into with TESARO, Inc. for exclusive rights to the investigational compound niraparib in prostate cancer.
