Incyte Corp. said Health Canada approved Minjuvi in combination with lenalidomide for the treatment of adult patients with relapsed or refractory diffuse large B-cell lymphoma.

The conditional approval is based on data from the L-MIND study and is supported by the RE-MIND study, an observational retrospective study in relapsed or refractory DLBCL. Removal of the conditions is contingent upon verification and description of clinical benefit in a confirmatory trial.

DLBCL is the most common type of non-Hodgkin lymphoma in adults worldwide, Incyte said, and is characterized by rapidly growing masses of malignant B-cells in the lymph nodes, spleen, liver, bone marrow or other organs.

Incyte and MorphoSys AG share global development rights to tafasitamab; Incyte has exclusive commercialization rights to tafasitamab outside the U.S. Tafasitamab is co-marketed by Incyte and MorphoSys under the brand name Monjuvi in the U.S. and is marketed by Incyte under the brand name Minjuvi in Canada.
