Santa Monica-based Kite, a Gilead Co., announced Aug. 27 it had received permission to market its cell-based cancer therapy in Europe.
The European Commission has authorized the sale of Kite’s personalized CAR-T immunotherapy for adults with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma in 28 countries within the European Union.
The Yescarta cell therapy was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in October 2017, three months after Gilead Sciences Inc. of Foster purchased Kite Pharma Inc. for $11.9 billion.
