Otsuka Pharmaceutical Co. Ltd. Announces Regulatory Approval for Pharmacological Treatment of Autosomal Dominant Polycystic Kidney Disease

Otsuka Pharmaceutical Co. Ltd. announced that it has obtain regulatory approval for a pharmacological treatment of autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD). Samsca has been approved in Japan in 7.5-mg and 15-mg tablet forms for extended use for the additional indication of ADPKD. Also, the new dosage form of 30-mg Samsca tablets has received approval for the indication of ADPKD. Samsca was developed over the past 26 years by the efforts of many researchers in Otsuka's Tokushima, Japan research facility. It is currently used in 14 countries and territories around the world as an aquaretic drug, which facilitates excretion of only free water without electrolyte loss due to its antagonist action on vasopressin V(2) receptors. Upon a discovery that proliferation and enlargement of renal cysts are hindered by suppression of cAMP formation at vasopressin V(2) receptors(vi), Otsuka launched a new effort from 2004 to develop a drug for the rare disease ADPKD, in conjunction with world specialists including Dr. Vicente E. Torres of the Mayo Clinic in the U.S. In global clinical trials (the TEMPO 3:4 trial(vii)) conducted in 15 countries on more than 1,400 patients with ADPKD, Samsca was shown to significantly suppress the rate of increase in total kidney volume by approximately 50% more than a placebo. The results of these trials were published in November, 2012 in the New England Journal of Medicine.
