“We are very pleased that FDA has granted this important designation to the ganetespib development program,” said Safi Bahcall, President and CEO of Synta. “We look forward to continued progress and bringing ganetespib to cancer patients as quickly as possible.”
Ganetespib is currently being evaluated as a treatment of non-small cell lung adenocarcinoma in the GALAXY program, consisting of the GALAXY-1 Phase IIb/III all-comer trial and the GALAXY-2 Phase III trial enriched for patients most likely to benefit from ganetespib treatment.
