FDA extends review time of AstraZeneca's vandetanib

LONDON — A new drug application for Anglo-Swedish drug maker AstraZeneca's vandetanib has been extended.

The drug maker recently announced that the Food and Drug Administration asked AstraZeneca to submit a Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategy, which accordingly extended the Prescription Drug User Fee Act from Jan. 7 to April 7.

AstraZeneca will continue to work closely with the FDA to support the review of vandetanib, a drug for treating patients with advanced medullary thyroid cancer.
