The drug company responsible for the lymphoma medicine Ukoniq (umbralisib), TG Therapeutics, indicated in April 2022 that Ukoniq was withdrawn from the market due to an increased risk of death in patients using Ukoniq.
This April 15, 2022 Dow Jones piece, “TG Therapeutics Pulls Sole Product Ukoniq Amid Increased Death Risk”, summarizes why Uknoniq was withdrawn from the market.
TG Therapeutics Inc. on Friday said it is pulling its Ukoniq lymphoma treatment from the market after a study showed a possible increased risk of death in patients taking the drug.
The New York biopharmaceutical company also said it is withdrawing its application seeking U.S. Food and Drug Administration approval of Ukoniq in combination with ublituximab for the treatment of adults with chronic lymphocytic leukemia and small lymphocytic lymphoma.
TG Therapeutics said it made the decision after recently updated overall-survival data from a Phase 3 study of the combination showed an increasing survival imbalance in favor of the control arm.
This April 15, 2022 company Press Release, “TG Therapeutics Announces Voluntary Withdrawal of the BLA/sNDA for U2 to Treat Patients with CLL and SLL”, provides the drug company’s reasoning for why Uknoniq was withdrawn from the market.
In connection with the apparent fact that Ukoniq was withdrawn from the market for safety reasons, we are investigating possible Ukoniq drug injury lawsuits against TG Therapeutics for cases involving patient deaths or serious side effects that may have been caused by Ukoniq.[View article at original source]
