STAT Plus: Epizyme seeks early approval for drug to treat ultra-rare tumors

Eleven years after it was founded, the Cambridge, Mass.-based biopharmaceutical startup Epizyme on Thursday sought early approval of an experimental medicine to treat an ultra-rare form of cancerous tumors. If successful, the drug would be the company’s first to reach the market.

Based on encouraging results from a midstage clinical trial, Epizyme asked the Food and Drug Administration for accelerated approval of tazemetostat for epithelioid sarcoma, a cancer most often diagnosed in young adults. The company will discuss the data Monday at the annual meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology in Chicago.
