Oncology Case Study

A therapeutic monoclonal antibody for treatment of B-cell chronic lymphocytic leukemia.


The FDA had refused to approve the drug for treatment of B-cell chronic lymphocytic leukemia based on limited data presented.


Applying our guiding principles to the solving the problem:

Be Creative: The solution required redefining the measures of efficacy. MediVector used qualitative data – patient histories – to better describe the benefits reported by treating physicians.

Be Effective: MediVector MDs re-evaluated all of the study data and were able to prove that the drug had actually worked. An amendment to the NDA was filed in five months. 

Be Entrepreneurial: The rescue of the drug required minimal investment of time and money in lieu of an expensive new clinical trial.


Six months after submitting amendments, the FDA approved the drug.
