It has been a long road, but we're finally approved. We're going to see a very rapid uptake for this drug. Lots of people have been waiting a long time for it. Congrats to those that followed this one from the clinic to commercialization. Good day!
Definitely good news and a bit of a relief to see FDA approval. I was fortunate to have gotten in after the FDA denied approval last time on essentially a technicality. Now we can sit back and see how quickly T-DM1 penetrates the breast cancer market. It will also be interesting to see T-DM1 expand into other cancer types were HER2 over-expression is detected, which should be in some ovarian cancers.
