This approval allows for the marketing of Cabometyx® (cabozantinib) in this indication in all 28 member states of the European Union, Norway and Iceland.

“Today’s EC approval for the use of Cabometyx® provides a much needed new option for HCC patients. Until now, physicians in Europe had only one approved therapy for the 2nd line treatment of this aggressive and difficult-to-treat cancer.[i], [ii] We are proud to offer Cabometyx® as an innovative treatment that has been shown to extend survival in previously treated patients with HCC”, said Harout Semerjian, Chief Commercial Officer, Ipsen,“This new indication reinforces Ipsen’s commitment to improve patients’ lives through the expansion of the clinical benefit of Cabometyx® in the treatment of solid tumors.”

Philippe Merle, M.D., Ph.D., Hepatology and Gastroenterology specialist at La Croix-Rousse Hospital, Lyon, stated: “Patients with HCC in Europe can now benefit from a treatment that has, through the CELESTIAL trial, proven effective in prolonging life and delaying disease progression. This is a very encouraging development for liver cancer patients, and provides physicians with a new therapeutic option for this complex disease.”

The EC approval is based on the results of the global placebo-controlled CELESTIAL phase 3 pivotal trial which met its primary endpoint of overall survival (OS), with cabozantinib providing a statistically significant and clinically meaningful improvement in OS compared with placebo in patients with advanced HCC who have been previously treated with sorafenib.[iii] In July 2018, CELESTIAL phase 3 pivotal trial results were published in the New England Journal of Medicine.3

The EC has also approved Cabometyx® for the treatment of advanced renal cell carcinoma (aRCC) both in treatment-naïve adults with intermediate or poor risk (May 2018) and in adults following prior vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF)-targeted therapy (September 2016).
