Pernix Therapeutics's Migraine Drug Treximet Receives Expanded Approval to Paediatric Patients in US

Pernix Therapeutics has announced the US FDA expanded approval of acute migraine drug Treximet (sumatriptan + naproxen sodium) for use in paediatric patients aged between 12 and 17 years old. The priority review-designated regulatory submission was based on Phase III data that assessed the drug's safety, efficacy, and pharmacokinetic activity and demonstrated its superiority over placebo in treating migraines. The drug comes with a Boxed Warning due to the risk of cardiovascular and gastrointestinal events. The recommended dose for paediatric patients is a single tablet of Treximet 10/60 milligrammes (10 mg sumatriptan + 60 mg naproxen sodium) daily, up to a maximum dose of Treximet 85/500 mg - the daily dose for adults. The new, lower dose of Treximet will be launched on the market in the third quarter of 2015. Treximet is the first combination product to be approved for acute migraine attacks in patients under 18 years old. The two active ingredients, sumatriptan and naproxen sodium, help convey effective and sustained management of pain associated with migraines compared with treatment with just one. The FDA expedited the review process of the candidate due to the need for more treatment options for paediatric patients - an estimated 8-23% of paediatric patients aged between 11 and 17 are affected by migraines.
