Akrimax Pharmaceuticals, LLC Announces New Data Highlight Use of Tirosint(R)
Jun 20 13
Akrimax Pharmaceuticals, LLC announced data that show a lower dose of Tirosint(R) (levothyroxine sodium) capsules is required as compared with standard T4 tablets for hypothyroidism patients with impaired gastric acid secretion to reach their target thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) levels. The American Association of Clinical Endocrinologist (AACE) Guidelines for Clinical Practice for Evaluation and Treatment of Hypothyroidism call for physicians to treat hypothyroidism with oral levothyroxine replacement therapy. Careful dose titration and monitoring is necessary in order to maintain a euthyroid state, while avoiding adverse events due to overtreatment.(1) TSH levels in patients receiving levothyroxine should be no more than 4.0 mU/L.(2). The pilot study examined patients who had T4 malabsorption and were in T4 treatment for more than 5 years with the same brand of tablets. A total of 36 patients met the study criteria, and 30 (28 females /2 males; median age=51 years; median T4 dose=2.05 mg/kg/day) completed the study. T4 treatment was switched from the usual tablets to a lower dose of the softgel T4 capsules (median T4 dose=1.77 mg/kg/day; p=0.0082). Thyroid function and TSH were measured before and after 3, 6, 12 and 18 months from the treatment switch. A slight serum TSH increase was observed in some patients after 3 months of treatment, with no change in Free T4 (FT4) levels. After 6 months, however, despite the reduced dose of T4, mean TSH values were similar (1.82 vs. 1.86 mU/l) in about two out of three patients (responders n=21) and so remained until the end of the study. In all of the remaining patients (non-responders n=9), TSH levels were significantly higher than baseline values throughout the study. In 4 of them, additional intestinal disorders were detected. Mean levels of FT4 and FT3 were in the normal range and not significantly modified throughout the study.
