After the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) withdrew its approval for the cancer medicine Ukoniq (umbralisib) due to safety concerns, people who took the drug may be concerned about possible Ukoniq side effects. Phillips Law Group is currently reviewing and looking into potential claims involving Ukoniq.
Ukoniq is a TG Therapeutics drug that was approved by the FDA in February 2021. It is used as a treatment for marginal zone lymphoma and follicular lymphoma. Unfortunately, FDA officials determined the risks of taking the drug outweigh the benefits of treatment.
Ukoniq was allowed on the market thanks to the FDA’s Accelerated Approval program. But after a review of data from a clinical trial meant to determine whether or not the use of the drug could be expanded for the treatment of chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) when combined with the investigational monoclonal antibody drug, ublituximab, the FDA issued an Ukoniq drug safety communication, announcing it was withdrawing approval of the drug.
“Updated findings from the UNITY-CLL clinical trial continued to show a possible increased risk of death in patients receiving Ukoniq,” an FDA statement read. “Based upon this determination, the drug’s manufacturer, TG Therapeutics, announced it was voluntarily withdrawing Ukoniq from the market for the approved uses in marginal zone lymphoma and follicular lymphoma.”
The statement urged patients to talk to their healthcare professionals about alternative treatments and to stop taking Ukoniq, and for healthcare professionals to stop prescribing Ukoniq at all.
Both healthcare professionals and patients previously taking Ukoniq were asked to report adverse events or Ukoniq side effects to the FDA’s MedWatch Safety Information and Adverse Event Reporting Program.
