keryx biopharmaceuticals (KERX) Key Developments

Keryx Receives CHMP Positive Opinion for Fexeric(R) (Ferric Citrate Coordination Complex) for the Treatment of Hyperphosphatemia in Adults With Chronic Kidney Disease

Keryx Biopharmaceuticals Inc. announced the Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP) of the European Medicines Agency (EMA) has adopted a positive opinion for the marketing authorization of ferric citrate coordination complex (EU approved brand name Fexeric) recommending approval for the treatment of elevated serum phosphorus levels, or hyperphosphatemia, in adults with chronic kidney disease (CKD). Fexeric was approved under the brand name Auryxia by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in September 2014, and is indicated in the U.S. for the control of serum phosphorus levels in patients with chronic kidney disease on dialysis. The CHMP positive opinion will now be reviewed by the European Commission (EC), which has the authority to approve medicines for use in the 28 countries of the European Union (EU) and Iceland, Norway and Liechtenstein. The EC generally follows the recommendation of the CHMP and typically issues its final opinion approximately two to three months following CHMP opinion. Keryx expects to make a decision about its EU commercial strategy by the end of 2015. Data Supporting Positive Opinion: The CHMP opinion is based on evidence from approximately 1900 patients, including two key clinical trials: a Phase 2, non-dialysis study and a 58-week, Phase 3 registration trial. In the Phase 3 trial, ferric citrate effectively reduced serum phosphorus levels to well within the KDOQI guidelines range of 3.5 mg/dL to 5.5 mg/dL. These data were published in 2014 in the Journal of the American Society of Nephrology.

Together, these new formularies will increase unrestricted access to Auryxia, across Medicare Part D and commercial insurance providers, to approximately 65% of people in the U.S. currently taking phosphate binders.
