CARY, N.C., Dec. 14, 2022 — Biologics by McKesson, an independent specialty pharmacy focused on oncology and rare disease areas, has been selected by Mirati therapeutics as one of two specialty pharmacies in a limited distribution network for KRAZATI® (adagrasib), which is indicated for the treatment of adult patients with locally advanced or metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) with KRAS G12C mutation as determined by an FDA-approved test, and who have received at least one prior systemic therapy. This indication is approved under accelerated approval based on objective response rate (ORR) and duration of response (DOR). Continued approval for this indication may be contingent upon verification of a clinical benefit in a confirmatory trial.
KRAZATI, approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on December 12, 2022, is an orally administered, small molecule inhibitor, intentionally designed to meet the challenges of KRASG12C. KRAZATI was approved through the FDA’s Breakthrough Therapy Designation, which is designed to expedite drugs to market that are expected to have a significant impact on a disease’s treatment.
“Patients with KRAS mutations have limited treatment options, and the KRASG12C biomarker is associated with poor survival outcomes,” said Ela Lourido, vice president of Biopharma Services at Biologics. “We are honored to be selected by Mirati to bring a new therapeutic option to these patients.”
