GSK pulls bid to extend use of kidney drug to ovarian cancer

GlaxoSmithKline on Monday withdrew an application to use Votrient, a drug licensed for kidney cancer, to treat advanced ovarian cancer after analysis of data from a late-stage trial did not support the benefit-to-risk ratio. GSK, which had applied for approval in Europe, said it would also not continue to develop the drug for advanced ovarian cancer in other countries. Votrient, which has the chemical name pazopanib, has been approved by many regulators as a treatment for advanced kidney cancer and some types of soft cell sarcomas.
