Deciphera Pharmaceuticals announced today that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has accepted their New Drug Application (NDA) for ripretinib for Priority Review. Ripretinib is an investigational broad-spectrum KIT and PDGFRa inhibitor for the treatment of patients with gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GIST). Priority Review provides for a six-month review. A targeted action date for this is August 13, 2020.

“With commercial preparations already underway, we believe we will be positioned for a potential U.S. Launch in 2020. We look forward to working with the FDA during the review of this application.” – Steve Hoerter, President and Chief Executive Officer, Deciphera

The Life Raft Group looks forward to continued collaboration with Deciphera, and to assisting in helping GIST patients to survive and thrive.
