Within less than five months Genmab has won the coveted Breakthrough Therapy designation from the FDA twice. And CEO Jan van de Winkel is clearly thrilled with the development, as Medwatch catches him on the phone immediately following the announcement of the latest Breakthrough designation.

“This is great news. It’s remarkable that it comes so shortly after our first Breakthrough Therapy designation (candidate drug, daratumumab, won the designation on May 1, 2013, ed.). It is very rare to see a company with two Breakthrough designations for two different drugs. But the important thing is that it will make it easier to advance Arzerra,” the CEO says in an interview with Medwatch.
