Cancer Prevention Pharmaceuticals Submits New Drug Application to the FDA for CPP-1X/sul for Treatment of Familial Adenomatous Polyposis

Cancer Prevention Pharmaceuticals, CPP-1X/sul | June 29, 2020

Cancer Prevention Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (CPP), a private biotech company developing novel therapeutics to prevent cancer and other diseases, announced that it has submitted a New Drug Application (NDA) to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) seeking accelerated approval for CPP-1X/sul for treatment of adults with familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP).

FAP is a rare genetic disease that if left untreated progresses to colorectal cancer in nearly 100% of patients. The clinical development of CPP-1X/sul was designed to establish this fixed dose combination product as a potential pharmaco-preventive drug treatment specifically for FAP patients.

“The NDA submission for our lead drug candidate, CPP-1X/sul, represents a significant milestone for FAP patients and their families,” said CPP CEO Jeff Jacob. “For most FAP patients, current medical practice involves a lifetime of periodic monitoring as well as highly invasive surgical procedures. If approved, CPP-1X/sul could provide an alternative to surgery for many patients, significantly improving their quality of life.”
