Spectrum is expected to submit its new drug application for poziotinib within this year.

Spectrum on 2nd March presented results of twice-daily data dosing data for posiotinib and cohort 3  at the ESMO TAT Virtual Congress 2021.

Spectrum is optimistic about this BID strategy and will provide data at AACR in April.

Spectrum is expected to report its earnings on March 11, 2021. In the third quarter of 2020, SPPI bore GAAP net loss and a non-GAAP net loss of $48.5 million and  $35.2 million respectively as compared to $26.6 million and $24.5 million in the same quarter of the previous year.
