After announcing that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s [FDA] Oncologic Drugs Advisory Committee [ODAC] voted 10-4 that the response rate and duration of response observed with FOLOTYNTM (pralatrexate) are reasonably likely to predict clinical benefit in patients with relapsed or refractory peripheral T-cell lymphoma [PTCL], Allos Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq: ALTH) appears likely to get FDA approval for the drug.

Needham & Company, LLC, a subsidiary of The Needham Group, Inc., thinks the terminology issued by the Advisory Committee suggests that the drug will be approved by the FDA on September 24. The firm thinks the company will obtain an ex-U.S. partnership in the longer time and it reiterates a Buy rating on the stock.
