14:28 EDTNVSNovartis: FDA expands the approved use of Exjade
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration expanded the approved use of Exjade (deferasirox) to treat patients ages 10 years and older who have chronic iron overload resulting from a genetic blood disorder called non-transfusion- dependent thalassemia. NTDT is a milder form of thalassemia that does not require individuals to get frequent red blood cell transfusions. However, over time, some patients with NTDT are still at risk for iron overload that can lead to damage to vital organs. The FDA is also authorizing marketing of FerriScan as an imaging companion diagnostic for Exjade. The agency previously cleared FerriScan for measuring liver iron concentration (LIC), but its use in Exjade clinical studies to select patients for therapy, and to manage therapy, defined its role as an imaging companion diagnostic necessary for Exjade's safe and effective use. FerriScan measures LIC non-invasively using magnetic resonance imaging. Exjade is marketed by East Hanover, N.J.-based Novartis (NCS). FerriScan is marketed by Resonance Health, based in Australia.
