Spectrum Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (SPPI) Announces Outstanding ZEVALIN® Clinical Data In Aggressive Relapsed/Refractory Lymphoma; Presented at the 17th Congress of the European Hematology Association


6/19/2012 11:11:11 AM

HENDERSON, Nev.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Spectrum Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NasdaqGS: SPPI), a biotechnology company with fully integrated commercial and drug development operations with a primary focus in oncology and hematology, today announced new clinical data presented in an oral presentation for ZEVALIN® (ibritumomab tiuxetan) Injection for intravenous use at the 17th Congress of the European Hematology Association (EHA).

Based on these findings, which were updated from results published January 2012 in the journal "CANCER", the Journal of the American Cancer Society, Spectrum's development program for ZEVALIN has been expanded to include support for a larger, randomized international study using the Z-BEAM regimen as a preparative regimen for patients with lymphoma who receive autologous stem cell transplantation (ASCT).
