Futibatinib Approved for Certain Patients with Advanced Intrahepatic Cholangiocarcinoma
The FOENIX*-CCA2 trial, a global phase 2, open-label trial examining 103 patients with unresectable, locally progressed, or metastatic iCCA harboring FGFR2 gene rearrangements including fusions, was the basis for the approval of futibatinib (Lytgobi, Taiho Oncology).
