Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Key Developments

FDA Provides Full Approval to Boehringer Ingelheim's Praxbind

Boehringer Ingelheim announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has provided full approval for Praxbind(idarucizumab), the specific reversal agent for Pradaxa (dabigatran etexilate mesylate). Praxbind is indicated for patients treated with Pradaxa when reversal of the anticoagulant effects of dabigatran is needed for emergency surgery/urgent procedures or in life-threatening or uncontrolled bleeding. The FDA granted accelerated approval to Praxbind in October 2015, with continued approval contingent upon results from the phase III RE-VERSE AD trial. The final results of RE-VERSE AD were published in the New England Journal of Medicine in July 2017, and showed that Praxbind immediately reversed the anticoagulant effect of Pradaxa. The majority of patients had complete reversal of anticoagulation within four hours as measured by ecarin clotting time (ECT 82%) or diluted thrombin time (dTT 99%). In the RE-VERSE AD study, no adverse safety signals were observed and there was a low rate of thrombotic events. In clinical studies, Praxbind has not shown a procoagulant effect. Healthcare providers should consider resuming anticoagulant therapy as soon as medically appropriate due to the risk of thrombosis associated with patients' underlying conditions.

FDA Grants Fast Track Designation to Nintedanib of Boehringer Ingelheim for the Treatment of Systemic Sclerosis with Associated Interstitial Lung Disease

Boehringer Ingelheim announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted Fast Track designation to nintedanib for the treatment of systemic sclerosis with associated interstitial lung disease (SSc-ILD). The FDA's Fast Track designation facilitates the development of new therapies that treat serious conditions and fulfill an unmet medical need in an effort to get treatments to those in need sooner. This designation is based on Boehringer Ingelheim's Investigational New Drug application (IND) of nintedanib for the treatment of SSc-ILD and the anticipated efficacy and safety data from SENSCIS™ (Safety and Efficacy of Nintedanib in Systemic SClerosIS), a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled global Phase III trial. This pivotal study is fully enrolled, including more than 520 patients from 32 countries. Systemic sclerosis, also known as scleroderma, is a rare disease characterized by the thickening and scarring of connective tissue of multiple organs in the body, typically affecting women between ages 25 and 55. Most people with the disease will develop some degree of lung scarring, or interstitial lung disease (ILD), which is the leading cause of death among people with systemic sclerosis. Nintedanib, which is marketed as Ofev®, is approved for a rare lung disease called idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, or IPF, and has been shown to slow disease progression as measured by annual rate of decline in lung function. Because SSC-ILD and IPF share similarities in how the underlying lung scarring, or fibrosis, forms in people with the disease, Boehringer Ingelheim is evaluating the impact of nintedanib on SSC-ILD.
