FDA Oks Takeda's lung cancer treatment

The Food and Drug Administration on April 28 approved Takeda Pharmaceutical's lung cancer drug, Alunbrig.

Alunbrig can be used as a second-line treatment for patients with anaplastic lymphoma kinase-postive metastastic non-small cell lung cancer who are already taking Pfizer's drug crizotinib — the standard treatment for the disease.

Takeda gained rights to Alunbrig through its $5.2 billion acquisition of Ariad Pharmaceuticals in February.
