Eisai and Ajinomoto Pharmaceuticals Launch Branched-Chain Amino Acid Formula Livamin Oral Granules in the Philippines

Eisai Co., Ltd. and Ajinomoto Pharmaceuticals Co., Ltd. announced that LIVAMIN Oral Granules (granules of isoleucine, leucine and valine, brand name in Japan: LIVACT Granules), a branched-chain amino acid formula, was launched in the Philippines. Ajinomoto Pharmaceuticals holds the manufacturing and marketing authorization rights to LIVAMIN Oral Granules. Under a basic contract concerning the marketing rights of LIVAMIN Oral Granules in the Asia region signed in February 2009, Eisai obtained the exclusive marketing rights from Ajinomoto Pharmaceuticals to distribute the product in the Philippines as well as Hong Kong, China and Macao. In April 2014, Eisai's subsidiary HI-Eisai Pharmaceutical Inc. received approval in the Philippines for LIVAMIN Oral Granules indicated for the improvement of hypoalbuminemia in patients with decompensated hepatic cirrhosis presenting with hypoalbuminemia despite adequate dietary intake. In hepatic cirrhosis, increase of fibrous tissues in the liver as chronic hepatitis progresses leads to hardening of the liver and results in loss of normal liver function. When hepatic cirrhosis is not accompanied with clearly defined symptoms despite partial damage to liver function, it is called compensated cirrhosis. When liver function worsens and presents with symptoms such as jaundice, malaise, ascites, edema, hepatic encephalopathy, it is called decompensated cirrhosis. The cause of such symptoms associated with decompensated hepatic cirrhosis includes malnutrition or metabolic disorder resulting from hypoalbuminemia that occurs as hepatic cirrhosis progresses. LIVAMIN Oral Granules ameliorates these symptoms by increasing serum albumin levels in patients with decompensated hepatic cirrhosis. Liver cirrhosis is a serious health issue in the Philippines, with around 127,000 people estimated to have liver cirrhosis and in 2010, it is said that approximately 9,200 people died due to liver cirrhosis.

Eisai Co., Ltd. Receives Approval of a New Indication for Proton Pump Inhibitor Pariet® Tablets 10 mg in Japan

Eisai Co., Ltd. announced that it has received approval of a new indication for proton pump inhibitor Pariet® Tablets 10 mg (rabeprazole sodium, “Pariet”) in Japan for use in the prevention of recurrent gastric or duodenal ulcers caused by low-dose aspirin therapy. In addition, Eisai has also received approval of a 5 mg tablet formulation with the same indication as Pariet Tablets 10 mg. The data used in the application was from a Phase II/III study (Study 308 /Study 309) on patients who required long-term administration of low-dose aspirin and who were confirmed to also have a history of gastric or duodenal ulcers. The results of Study 308 showed that cumulative recurrence rates of gastric or duodenal ulcers over 24 weeks (the study's primary endpoint) in the 5 mg and 10 mg Pariet groups were 2.8% and 1.4%, respectively, compared to 21.7% for the comparator group (teprenone). Thus, both Pariet groups demonstrated a significantly better preventative effect than the comparator group (p<0.001 for both Pariet groups vs. the comparator group) 1 . Furthermore, in Study 309 which examined the long term administration of Pariet 5 mg and 10 mg for a maximum of 52 weeks after initial treatment of 24 weeks, both dosage groups maintained a preventative effect over the whole 76 week maximum treatment period. The most commonly reported side effects (5 or more cases observed) in both Study 308 and 309 were diarrhea and constipation, and this was consistent with the known safety profile of Pariet. In addition, the registration validity period for this indication for Pariet is 4 years. By gaining this approval, Eisai aims to increase the clinical value of the drug so as to further contribute to the range of treatment options available to patients with acid-related diseases.
