FDA grants priority review to Janssen for apalutamide as a treatment for non-metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer

With a priority review, the FDA will make a decision about the approvability of apalutamide on about April 10, 2018, six months from the acceptance of the new drug application. Additionally, an oral presentation at the upcoming Genitourinary Cancers Symposium in early February will provide a full report on the results of the SPARTAN trial. Last year, Janssen announced positive results from the SPARTAN trial.
