Quizartinib granted approval by the EC for patients with newly diagnosed FLT3-ITD-mutated AML

Nov 9, 2023
Learning objective: After reading this article, learners will be able to cite a new development in the treatment of AML.

On November 9, 2023, quizartinib, an oral selective type II FLT3 inhibitor, was approved by the European Commission (EC) in combination with standard cytarabine and anthracycline induction, standard cytarabine consolidation chemotherapy, and as a maintenance monotherapy for the treatment of adult patients with newly diagnosed FLT3-ITD-mutated acute myeloid leukemia.1

This approval is based on a recent positive opinion by the European Medicines Agency’s Committee of Medicinal Products for Human Use, previously covered by the AML Hub, and results from the QuANTUM-First trial (NCT02668653).1 Quizartinib has also been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug  Administration and in Japan for the same indication.
