    Basilea reports acceptance for regulatory review of Pfizer’s marketing authorization application for antifungal isavuconazole (Cresemba®) in invasive aspergillosis in China

    * Second indication under review following mucormycosis Basel, Switzerland, November 25, 2020Basilea Pharmaceutica Ltd. (SIX: BSLN) announced today that the marketing authorization application (MAA) for the antifungal isavuconazole (Cresemba®) for the treatment of adult patients with invasive aspergillosis, which was submitted by Basilea’s license partner Pfizer Inc. (NYSE: PFE, “Pfizer”), has been accepted for regulatory review by the Center for Drug Evaluation at the National Medical Products Administration (NMPA) of China. In August 2020, Basilea had announced that an MAA for Cresemba for the treatment of mucormycosis was accepted for review by the NMPA.David Veitch, Chief Executive Officer, said: “Invasive aspergillosis and mucormycosis are the two most frequent forms of invasive mold infections and important causes of morbidity and mortality in patients with hematologic malignancies undergoing intensive chemotherapy regimens. China is commercially a very important market for Cresemba, accounting for more than 15 percent of the global market for newer antifungals. We are therefore very pleased with the progress Pfizer is making in China. The acceptance of the isavuconazole marketing authorization applications for regulatory review is an important milestone in bringing Cresemba to the Chinese market and addressing the unmet medical needs of patients suffering from invasive mold infections.”In November 2017, Basilea and Pfizer extended their existing license agreement for Europe (excluding the Nordics), Russia, Turkey and Israel, to include China, including Hong Kong and Macao, and sixteen countries in the Asia Pacific region. Under the agreement with Pfizer, Basilea is still eligible for regulatory and sales milestone payments of up to approximately USD 630 million, in addition to receiving mid-teen royalties on sales.Cresemba has been approved in more than 50 countries to date and is currently marketed in 48 countries, including the United States, most EU member states and several additional countries inside and outside of Europe. For the twelve-month period to the end of June 2020, total "in-market" sales of Cresemba amounted to USD 230 million, a 30 percent growth year-on-year.1About Cresemba (isavuconazole)Isavuconazole is an intravenous (i.v.) and oral azole antifungal, commercialized under the trade name Cresemba. In the 27 European Union member states, as well as in Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and the U.K., isavuconazole is approved for the treatment of adult patients with invasive aspergillosis and for the treatment of adult patients with mucormycosis for whom amphotericin B is inappropriate.2 Cresemba is also approved in the United States and several additional countries in Europe and beyond.3 It has orphan drug designation in the U.S., Europe and Australia for its approved indications. Basilea has entered into several license and distribution agreements for isavuconazole covering the United States, Europe, China, Japan, Latin America, Asia-Pacific, the Middle East and North Africa region, Canada, Russia, Turkey and Israel.About BasileaBasilea Pharmaceutica Ltd. is a commercial-stage biopharmaceutical company, focused on the development of products that address the medical challenges in the therapeutic areas of oncology and infectious diseases.
