GlobalData’s new alert, Afinitor: A Two-Pronged Attack Against Tuberous Sclerosis Complex,” takes a look at the implications of the FDA’s recent approval of the drug for the treatment of angiomyolipomas, benign kidney tumors that affect a majority of people with this rare disease. This is the second indication for Afinitor in this patient population; in October 2010, the drug was approved for the treatment of a rare type of brain tumor in tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) patients called subependymal giant cell astrocytoma (SEGA). The approval of Afinitor in a second indication for TSC means that the product is now available to fulfill an important unmet treatment need in this patient population.
