Johnson & Johnson Submits Supplemental Biologics License Application and New Drug Application to U.S. FDA Seeking Approval of RYBREVANT® (amivantamab-vmjw) Plus Lazertinib for the Treatment of Patients with EGFR-Mutated Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC)


RYBREVANT® and lazertinib show promising results in first-line treatment for EGFR-mutated NSCLC, prompting Johnson & Johnson's submission of a supplemental Biologics License Application (sBLA) and New Drug Application (NDA) to the FDA.

Johnson & Johnson announced today the submission of a supplemental Biologics License Application (sBLA) to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) together with a New Drug Application (NDA) seeking the approval of RYBREVANT® (amivantamab-vmjw) in combination with lazertinib 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) exon 19 deletions or L858R substitution mutations, as detected by an FDA-approved test. Based on the Phase 3 MARIPOSA study, this marks the third submission from the RYBREVANT® clinical development program in four months, following sBLA submissions for MARIPOSA-2 and PAPILLON.

“The combination of RYBREVANT® and lazertinib demonstrated statistically significant and clinically meaningful improvement in progression-free survival compared to osimertinib in patients with previously untreated EGFR-mutated NSCLC. This remains an area of high unmet need as patients often experience treatment resistance and disease progression on currently available therapies,” said Kiran Patel, M.D., Vice President, Clinical Development, Solid Tumors, Johnson & Johnson Innovative Medicine. “We believe this targeted, chemotherapy-free regimen may have the potential to transform the treatment of EGFR-mutated NSCLC, and we look forward to working with the FDA in review of these applications.” 

These applications are supported by data from the Phase 3 MARIPOSA (NCT04487080) study evaluating the efficacy and safety of RYBREVANT® in combination with Lazertinib versus Osimertinib and versus Lazertinib alone in first-line treatment of patients with locally advanced or metastatic NSCLC with EGFR ex19del or L858R substitution mutations. Results from the MARIPOSA study was recently presented in a Presidential Symposium at the European Society of Medical Oncology (ESMO) 2023 Congress (Abstract #LBA14).
