TARSA Therapeutics' NDA For TBRIA, The First Oral Calcitonin For The Treatment Of Postmenopausal Osteoporosis, Accepted For Filing

TARSA Therapeutics Inc. announced that its New Drug Application (NDA) for TBRIATM (calcitonin-salmon [rDNA origin] delayed release tablets) submitted to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in July 2015, has been accepted for review, with a PDUFA date of May 30, 2016. Calcitonin has been available as an osteoporosis treatment for more than 35 years, but only in formulations allowing for injectable or intranasal administration. TBRIA would be the first FDA approved oral calcitonin, offering a convenient route of administration and potentially providing enhanced patient acceptance and compliance. TBRIA is a once-daily oral recombinant salmon calcitonin tablet for the treatment of postmenopausal osteoporosis in women greater than 5 years postmenopause when alternative treatments are not suitable (e.g., patients for whom other therapies are contraindicated or for patients who are intolerant or unwilling to use other therapies). TBRIA demonstrated positive safety and efficacy as a treatment for postmenopausal osteoporosis in the global, randomized, double-blind ORACAL trial. This study, which was the subject of a Special Protocol Assessment with the FDA, is the pivotal Phase III trial that forms the basis for TARSA's NDA. In the trial, TBRIA met its primary endpoint and demonstrated statistical superiority to both placebo and nasal calcitonin spray in increasing bone mineral density at the lumbar spine after 48 weeks of use. The safety profile of TBRIA did not substantially differ from nasal calcitonin or placebo. Study results were published in the Journal of Bone and Mineral Research.
