Iroko Pharmaceuticals Announces Acceptance of U.S. Filing for SoluMatrix® Meloxicam in Osteoarthritis Pain
Mar 12 15
Iroko Pharmaceuticals, LLC announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration accepted for review the New Drug Application for SoluMatrix® meloxicam, a low dose nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), for the proposed indication of management of osteoarthritis pain. SoluMatrix® meloxicam was developed to align with recommendations from FDA and several professional medical organizations that NSAIDs be used at the lowest effective dose for the shortest possible duration consistent with individual patient treatment goals. SoluMatrix® meloxicam is the third low dose NSAID developed by Iroko using proprietary SoluMatrix Fine Particle Technology™ and contains meloxicam as submicron particles that are approximately 10 times smaller than their original size. The reduction in particle size provides an increased surface area, leading to faster dissolution. The NDA submission for SoluMatrix® meloxicam included data from a Phase 3, multi-center, double-blind and placebo-controlled study, of 402 patients, aged 40 and older, with osteoarthritis of the knee or hip who were randomized to receive treatment with once-daily SoluMatrix® meloxicam 5 mg, SoluMatrix® meloxicam 10 mg, or placebo over a period of 12 weeks. Data from this study showed that both SoluMatrix® meloxicam dosage strengths achieved efficacy at 33% lower doses than currently available meloxicam products. These data were presented at the 2014 European League Against Rheumatism (EULAR) Annual European Congress of Rheumatology in Paris, France4. The NDA also included data from a 12-month open-label study that enrolled 600 patients.
