Aveo Oncology has submitted a new drug application to the Food and Drug Administration for a potential treatment for advanced kidney cancer. The Cambridge company has a deal with Japanese drug maker Astellas Pharma Inc. to commercialize tivozanib in some other countries. The application asks the FDA for approval to market tivozanib in the United States for patients with advanced renal cell carcinoma. An estimated 250,000 people are diagnosed with kidney cancer annually.
