Through the agreement, Spectrum holds full ownership of RIT and will be responsible for all future activities relating to Zevalin. The company will also book all of Zevalin's revenues.

“We are excited to have 100 percent ownership of Zevalin,” says the company's president, chairman and CEO, Rajesh C. Shrotriya, M.D. “Recent clinical data have dramatically underscored the clinical benefits of ZEVALIN in NHL (Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma)."
