ACADIA Pharmaceuticals Submits New Drug Application for NUPLAZID for the Treatment of Parkinson’s Disease Psychosis

ACADIA Pharmaceuticals Inc. announced it has submitted a New Drug Application (NDA) to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) seeking approval for NUPLAZID™ (pimavanserin) for the treatment of psychosis associated with Parkinson’s disease. NUPLAZID is an SSIA (selective serotonin inverse agonist) preferentially targeting 5-HT2A receptors. Through this novel mechanism, NUPLAZID has demonstrated significant efficacy in Parkinson’s disease psychosis (PDP) and has the potential to avoid many of the debilitating side effects of existing antipsychotics, none of which are approved for use in PDP patients. The FDA granted NUPLAZID Breakthrough Therapy designation for PDP in 2014. According to the National Parkinson Foundation, about one million people in the United States and from four to six million people worldwide suffer from Parkinson’s disease. An estimated 40% of these patients have Parkinson’s disease psychosis, which is characterized by hallucinations and delusions. Currently, there is no FDA-approved therapy to treat Parkinson’s disease psychosis. ACADIA has requested a Priority Review of its NDA. If granted, Priority Review status would accelerate the review timeline from ten months to six months following the conclusion of the 60 calendar day filing review period that begins on the FDA’s receipt of the NDA. The FDA informs the applicant of a Standard or Priority Review designation following the conclusion of this 60 calendar day period.
