EU Marketing Approval In Sight For 11 Drugs After CHMP OK; Thumbs Down For Two

Executive Summary

The European Medicines Agency’s key scientific committee, the CHMP, has recommended for approval throughout Europe a total of 11 new drugs. Two medicines received a negative opinion from the committee and the marketing authorization application for one product has been withdrawn. A further eight products are set to receive indication extensions. The medicines that got positive opinions are likely to secure official approval within the next few months.
