The FDA has granted lurbinectedin (PM1183) an orphan drug designation for the treatment of patients with small cell lung cancer (SCLC), according to PharmaMar, the manufacturer of the marine-derived treatment.

Lurbinectedin is currently being studied in the global, randomized, phase III ATLANTIS study with doxorubicin versus investigator’s choice of either cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin and vincristine or topotecan (NCT02566993). ATLANTIS is actively recruiting for patients with SCLC who have failed 1 prior platinum-containing line of therapy.
