Roche's Alecensa latest beneficiary of faster China drug approvals

ZURICH, Aug 20 (Reuters) - Chinese regulators are speeding up drug approvals, with Roche’s Alecensa cancer medicine the latest beneficiary in a market that is growing increasingly important for international pharmaceuticals companies’ growth plans.

China’s National Drug Administration backed the Swiss drugmaker’s Alecensa to treat a kind of lung cancer, called anaplastic lymphoma kinase-, or ALK-positive, less than a year after after European and U.S. approvals. (Reporting by John Miller)
