eisai co ltd (ESALF) Key Developments

Eisai Co., Ltd. Presents New Phase III Data at the American Epilepsy Society Annual Meeting in Seattle, Washington

Eisai Co., Ltd. presents new Phase III data at the American Epilepsy Society (AES) Annual Meeting in Seattle, Washington, of Fycompa® (perampanel) as adjunctive therapy for primary generalised tonic-clonic seizures (PGTC). Perampanel is currently indicated for the adjunctive treatment of partial onset seizures, with or without secondarily generalised seizures, in patients with epilepsy aged 12 years and older. Perampanel is the only licensed anti-epileptic drug (AED) to selectively target AMPA receptors, a protein in the brain which plays a critical role in the spread of seizures. This mechanism of action is different to all other, currently available AEDs. In addition, perampanel has the added benefit of convenient, once-daily dosing at bedtime and, significantly, is the only new-generation partial epilepsy treatment approved to treat adolescents (>12 years) with epilepsy from launch. The results from study 332 demonstrate that perampanel significantly reduces primary generalised tonic-clonic seizure frequency and improves responder rates (=50% reduction in seizure frequency per 28 days in the maintenance period, relative to baseline), the study's two primary outcome measures, when compared to placebo. The study showed that adjunctive treatment with perampanel improved seizure control in people with idiopathic generalised epilepsy aged 12 years and over who were living with inadequately controlled primary generalised tonic-clonic seizures. 30.9% using perampanel were free of tonic-clonic seizures and it was well tolerated with a safety profile similar to refractory partial-onset seizures. Discovered and developed by Eisai in Europe and Japan, perampanel is manufactured in the UK and was approved by the European Commission on 23 July 2012. Perampanel is now approved in more than 35 countries worldwide. Eisai submitted a Marketing Authorisation Application to the European Commission in August 2014 for an indication expansion for perampanel to include the adjunctive treatment of PGTC seizures in people with epilepsy.
