13:15 EDTLGNDFDA expands use of Novartis' Promacta to include children ages 1 and older
Ligand Pharmaceuticals (LGND) announced that the FDA has approved an expanded use for Promacta, a Novartis (NVS) product, to include children 1 year of age and older with chronic immune thrombocytopenia who have had an insufficient response to corticosteroids, immunoglobulins or splenectomy. Promacta was acquired by Novartis in March from GlaxoSmithKline (GSK). Promacta was discovered as a result of research collaboration between GSK and Ligand Pharmaceuticals and was developed by GSK. The updated label also includes a new oral suspension formulation of Promacta that is designed for younger children who may not be able to swallow tablets. Promacta was approved by the FDA as a tablet formulation in June 2015 for children 6 years of age and older and in 2008 for use in adult patients with the same condition. The label expansion of Promacta was based on data from two double-blind, placebo-controlled trials, including the largest Phase 3 clinical trial in this patient population. Treatment with Promacta significantly increased and sustained platelet counts among pediatric patients with chronic ITP with an insufficient response to prior chronic ITP therapies, and some patients taking concomitant ITP medications were able to reduce or discontinue their use of these medications, primarily corticosteroids. Promacta should be used only in those whose degree of thrombocytopenia and clinical condition increase the risk for bleeding.
