Japan Tobacco Inc. and Torii Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. Sign Agreement to Market Two New Tenofovir Alafenamide Based Anti HIV Drugs in Japan

Japan Tobacco Inc. and Torii Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. announced that they have signed an agreement to market two new tenofovir alafenamide (TAF)-based anti-HIV drugs, for which JT holds the exclusive rights to develop and commercialize in Japan. Under the terms of the agreement, Torii holds exclusive rights to market the drugs in Japan, subsequent to JT's obtaining manufacturing and marketing approval from the country's authorities. TAF is a novel prodrug of tenofovir, a nucleotide reverse transcriptase inhibitor (NRTI) discovered by Gilead Sciences Inc. (Gilead). Previously, only a prodrug of tenofovir, tenofovir disoproxil fumarate (TDF) has been available in the market as an active ingredient of Viread®, Truvada® and Stribild®. TAF has demonstrated high antiviral efficacy at a dose 10 times lower than TDF. It is also expected that influence on kidneys and bones can be reduced with TAF compared to TDF. JT is currently preparing to file its New Drug Application (NDA) in Japan for an investigational once-daily single tablet regimen (E/C/F/TAF) containing elvitegravir 150mg, cobicistat 150mg, emtricitabine 200mg and TAF 10mg, one of the two TAF-based drugs pertaining to the agreement. E/C/F/TAF is an antiretroviral which can treat HIV infection with once-daily administration. TDF 300mg, one of four ingredients of Stribild® Combination Tablets which has been marketed by Torii in Japan from 2013, is replaced with TAF 10mg to compose E/C/F/TAF. In Gilead's two Phase 3 studies, E/C/F/TAF showed high efficacy and good tolerability comparable to Stribild®, a comparator of the studies. Significantly better renal and bone laboratory parameters were also observed when compared with Stribild®. Gilead has submitted an NDA to the U.S. Food and Drug Adminstration (FDA) and a Marketing Authorisation Application (MAA) to the European Medicines Agency (EMA) for E/C/F/TAF. The other TAF-based drug comprises emtricitabine and TAF (F/TAF). TDF, one of two active ingredients of Truvada®, is replaced with TAF to compose F/TAF. Gilead is conducting a Phase 3 study for F/TAF and plans to submit regulatory applications in the U.S. and EU in Second Quarter of 2015. JT plans to submit its NDA in Japan for F/TAF upon Gilead's obtaining approval outside Japan.
