Epizyme already conducted a meeting with the FDA to discuss the FL registration strategy with the present patient population in the company’s ongoing phase 2 trial.

The company can register patients in both types of EZH2 mutation and patients with wild-type FL with disease progression after two or more lines of therapy. Epizyme expects to submit an NDA (new drug application) to the FDA for the said indications by the fourth quarter of 2019. Epizyme already completed the enrollment of the phase 2 trial for the evaluation of safety and efficacy of tazemetostat for the said indications. Epizyme also anticipates submitting its first NDA to the FDA for tazemetostat for the treatment of individuals with epithelioid sarcoma under accelerated approval pathway in the second quarter of 2019. Epizyme has plans to initiate clinical trials for label expansion of tazemetostat and also evaluate the drug along with other combination therapies. Epizyme sees potential in the drug for the treatment of multiple cancer types. The company plans to initiate the study of tazemetostat for small-cell lung cancer, triple-negative breast cancer, ovarian cancer, and castration-resistant prostate cancer by the second half of 2019. ## Analysts’ recommendations Of the ten analysts tracking Epizyme in January 2019, four of them recommended a “strong buy,” while another four analysts recommended a “buy” rating.
