VIZIMPRO® (dacomitinib) Receives Marketing Authorization in European Union (EU)

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Pfizer Inc. (NYSE: PFE) today announced that the European Commission has approved VIZIMPRO® (dacomitinib), a tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI), as monotherapy for the first-line treatment of adult patients with locally advanced or metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) with epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR)-activating mutations.

“Lung cancer remains the leading cause of cancer-related death worldwide and despite advances in biomarker-driven therapies, overcoming resistance continues to be crucial in treating EGFR-mutated non-small cell lung cancer,” said Andreas Penk, M.D., regional president, Oncology International Developed Markets at Pfizer. “The marketing authorization of VIZIMPRO, which has shown a more than five-month improvement in progression-free survival over an existing therapy in a Phase 3 clinical trial, provides a new option for patients with EGFR-mutated non-small cell lung cancer and reinforces Pfizer’s ongoing commitment to addressing the remaining needs of the thousands of EU patients with this disease.”
