Japan’s Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare Approves Gilead’s Sovaldi for the Treatment of Genotype 2 Chronic Hepatitis C

Gilead Sciences Inc. announced that the Japanese Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare (MHLW) has approved Sovaldi (sofosbuvir), a once-daily nucleotide analog polymerase inhibitor, for the suppression of viremia in patients with genotype 2 chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection with or without compensated cirrhosis. Sovaldi is indicated for use in combination with ribavirin (RBV) for 12 weeks. Sovaldi (in combination with RBV) is the first all-oral, interferon-free treatment regimen for genotype 2 HCV infection. Sovaldi is also the first product to be marketed by Gilead in Japan. Primarily due to HCV, Japan has one of the rates of liver cancer of any industrialized country. Of the more than one million people chronically infected with HCV, 20%-30% have the genotype 2 strain of the virus. Currently approved therapies in Japan for genotype 2 HCV infection involve 24-48 weeks of injections with pegylated interferon, which may not be suitable for many patients. Sovaldi’s approval is supported by data from a Phase 3 clinical trial conducted in Japan (Study GS-US-334-0118) among treatment-naïve and treatment-experienced genotype 2 patients. Approval was based on 96% (n=135/140) of genotype 2 HCV-infected patients who received 12 weeks of an all-oral regimen of Sovaldi plus RBV 600–1,000 mg/day achieving a sustained virologic response 12 weeks after completing therapy (SVR12). Patients who achieve SVR12 are considered cured of HCV infection. The approval is also supported by SVR12 results from four international Phase 3 studies (FISSION, FUSION, POSITRON and VALENCE), which included genotype 2 HCV patients. Gilead filed a New Drug Application (NDA) in Japan for a single-tablet regimen of sofosbuvir and the NS5A inhibitor ledipasvir for the treatment of genotype 1 HCV infected patients on September 24, 2014. The ledipasvir/sofosbuvir single tablet regimen is an investigational product in Japan and its safety and efficacy have not yet been established.

Gilead Sciences, Inc. Signs Non-Exclusive Licensing Agreement with Zydus Cadila

Zydus Cadila and Gilead Sciences Inc. have signed a non-exclusive licensing agreement which will allow the manufacture of sofosbuvir and the fixed-dose combination of ledipasvir/sofosbuvir for distribution in 91 countries including India. The breakthrough oral therapy, SoviHep which will provide succour to more than 10 mn patients who suffer from Hepatitis C in India has been launched by the Zydus group. The therapy will be marketed by the specialty division of the group, Zydus Heptiza. Hepatitis C is an infectious disease affecting primarily the liver, caused by the Hepatitis C Virus (HCV). It spreads primarily through blood-to-blood contact associated with poorly sterilized medical equipment, and transfusions. An estimated 150-200 million people worldwide are infected with hepatitis C.

Mylan Signs Exclusive Agreement with Gilead Sciences

Mylan Pharmaceuticals Private Limited has entered into an agreement with Gilead Sciences, under which Mylan has been appointed as the exclusive distributor of Sovaldi (sofosbuvir 400mg tablets) and Harvoni (ledipasvir 90mg/sofosbuvir 400 mg tablets) for the treatment of chronic hepatitis C, in India. As Gilead's exclusive branded medicine distribution partner, Mylan expects to begin distribution of Sovaldi in India in second quarter of 2015. Sovaldi received regulatory approval in India in January 2015 - the first country in Asia to approve the medicine. This agreement is in addition to the licensing and technology transfer agreement that Mylan entered into with Gilead, which grants Mylan the non-exclusive rights to manufacture and distribute generic sofosbuvir, ledipasvir/sofosbuvir and, upon approval, the investigational NS5A inhibitor GS-5816 and single tablet regimen of sofosbuvir/GS-5816 in 91 developing countries. Mylan also partners with Gilead on expanding access to high quality, affordable antiretrovirals for the treatment of HIV/AIDS in India and other developing countries.
