NPS Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Reports the U.S. Food and Drug Administration Extends Prescription Drug User Fee Act (PDUFA)

NPS Pharmaceuticals, Inc. reported that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has extended the company's Prescription Drug User Fee Act (PDUFA) action date for its Natpara Biologics License Application (BLA) by three months from October 24, 2014 to January 24, 2015. The FDA extended the action date to provide time for a full review of a major amendment; such extensions are provided for by regulation. In addition, the FDA requested that NPS Pharma submit a Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategy (REMS) for Natpara and the company is working to finalize the REMS in advance of the revised PDUFA action date. To date, the FDA has not requested that additional clinical studies be completed prior to the approval of Natpara; however, the company expects a post-approval study commitment. Natpara is a bioengineered replacement therapy for endogenous parathyroid hormone (PTH) that NPS Pharma has developed for the treatment of Hypoparathyroidism, a rare endocrine disorder characterized by insufficient levels of PTH. Hypoparathyroidism is a rare endocrine disorder affecting only approximately 50,000 people in the U.S. in which the parathyroid glands fail to produce sufficient amounts of PTH or where the hormone lacks biologic activity. PTH plays a central role in a variety of critical physiological functions in the body. Insufficient levels of PTH lead to many physiological abnormalities, including low levels of calcium and high levels of phosphate in the blood, and an inability to convert native vitamin D into its active state, which helps the body properly absorb oral calcium.
