Pfizer Inc. (PFE) said Friday the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved lorbrena for certain lung cancer patients.

The approval was based on a multicenter Phase 1/2 study, B7461001, which evaluated lorbrena for the treatment of patients with certain types of lung cancer whose disease had progressed while receiving other treatments.

Continued approval for this indication may be contingent upon verification and description of clinical benefit in a confirmatory trial, the company said.

Pfizer said the latest approval is the company's third for an oncology treatment, including two lung cancer medicines, within two months.
