Takeda Pharmaceutical International GmbH Announces Results of the REACT Study Demonstrating Daxas

Takeda Pharmaceutical International GmbH announced results of the REACT study demonstrating Daxas(roflumilast) significantly reduced exacerbations and hospitalizations in patients with severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), who are at risk of frequent and severe exacerbations despite already receiving inhalation therapy with ICS/LABA combinations or triple (LAMA/ICS/LABA) therapy. The study showed that roflumilast significantly reduced the rate of severe exacerbations by 24.3% (p=0.0175) and those requiring hospitalization by 23.9% (p=0.0209), reducing the clinical and economic burden of this disease. In patients receiving triple therapy, roflumilast significantly reduced the rate of severe exacerbations by 23.3%(p=0.0406), indicating how patients with severe COPD may benefit most from the addition of roflumilast to their therapeutic regimen. These results have been published online in The Lancet. To prevent exacerbations and possible hospitalization, patients with severe COPD are treated with inhaled long-acting muscarinic antagonist alone and/or a fixed combination of inhaled corticosteroids/long-acting ß2-agonists (ICS/LABA). Despite access to these inhaled medications, a significant number of COPD patients still suffer from frequent exacerbations, impacting their overall health and accelerating lung function decline, leading to substantial morbidity and mortality. Already approved as an add-on therapy to long acting bronchodilators for severe COPD, the double-blind REACT study investigated roflumilast as an effective add-on therapy for the reduction of exacerbations, improved lung function and major adverse cardiac events in patients not adequately controlled with ICS/LABA combinations or triple LAMA/ICS/LABA therapy in maximal approved dosage. In the overall study population there was a reduction in the rate of moderate-to-severe exacerbations by 13.2%(p=0.0529) using a Poisson regression analysis and by 14.2%(p=0.0424) in a predefined sensitivity analysis using negative binomial regression, when compared with the placebo. Roflumilast showed a statistically significant improvement in lung function, with a 56 mL (p<0.0001) increase in post-bronchodilator FEV1 and 92 mL increase in FVC, compared to placebo.

Valeant Canada Acquires Rights to Edarbi and Edarbyclor for the Canadian Market from Takeda Pharmaceuticals International GmbH

Valeant Canada announced it has acquired the Canadian rights to Edarbi™ (azilsartan medoxomil) and Edarbyclor™ (azilsartan medoxomil and chlorthalidone), two products from Takeda Pharmaceutical International GmbH that have been approved by Health Canada, and are indicated for hypertension. The rights were acquired through a license, distribution and supply agreement between affiliates of Valeant Canada and Takeda Pharmaceutical International. The licensing of these complementary products supports Valeant Canada's desire to meet patient treatment needs and to build on its current product offering to physicians in the cardio-metabolic field, which already includes Lodalis, Tiazac XC and Glumetza.
