Epizyme's efforts on developing its lead candidate, tazemetostat, for a number of hematological malignancies and genetically defined solid tumors are impressive. However, the company suffered a setback when the FDA imposed a partial clinical hold on new enrollment of U.S. patients in the ongoing trials for tazemetostat. The company’s attention now is squarely focused on a set of actions intended to address the partial clinical hold.The company is assessing its timeline for submitting a new drug application to the FDA for tazemetostat regarding follicular lymphoma. The company plans to file a first new drug application for tazemetostat with respect to epithelioid sarcoma in the fourth quarter of 2018. A potential approval for the candidate will be a significant boost to the company.  Shares of the company have outperformed the industry in the year so far. However, the company is highly dependent on its collaboration partners for growth.
