Proteus Digital Health, Inc. Key Developments

Proteus Digital Health And Proteus Digital Health Announces First U.S. FDA Approval Of A Digital Medicine System

Otsuka Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. and Proteus Digital Health announced that the United States Food and Drug Administration has granted the first approval of a digital medicine system, ABILIFY MYCITE (aripiprazole tablets with sensor), a drug-device combination product comprised of Otsuka's oral aripiprazole tablets embedded with an Ingestible Event Marker (IEM) sensor. The ABILIFY MYCITE System includes: ABILIFY MYCITE, the MYCITE Patch (a wearable sensor, developed by Proteus); the MYCITE APP, a smartphone application (app), used with a compatible smartphone to display information for the patient; and web-based portals for healthcare providers and caregivers that display a summary of aripiprazole ingestion over time. Only functions of the app related to tracking drug ingestion have been approved by the FDA. ABILIFY MYCITE, an atypical antipsychotic, is indicated in adults for the treatment of schizophrenia, for the treatment of acute manic and mixed episodes, and maintenance treatment of bipolar I disorder as monotherapy, and as adjunctive therapy to lithium or valproate, and the adjunctive treatment of major depressive disorder.1 ABILIFY MYCITE is intended to track drug ingestion. The ability of ABILIFY MYCITE to improve patient compliance or modify aripiprazole dosage has not been established. The use of ABILIFY MYCITE to track drug ingestion in "real-time" or during an emergency is not recommended because detection may be delayed or not occur. Elderly patients with dementia-related psychosis treated with antipsychotic drugs are at an increased risk of death (1.6 to 1.7 times) compared to placebo-treated patients. ABILIFY MYCITE is not approved for the treatment of patients with dementia-related psychosis. Antidepressants increased the risk of suicidal thoughts and behavior in children, adolescents, and young adults. Those on antidepressant therapy should be monitored closely for worsening, and for emergence of suicidal thoughts and behaviors. Advise families and caregivers of the need for close observation and communication with the prescriber. ABILIFY MYCITE is not approved for use in pediatric patients.
