NPS Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Receives Japanese Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare Grants Teduglutide Orphan Drug Designation for the Treatment of Short Bowel Syndrome

NPS Pharmaceuticals, Inc. announced that the Japanese Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare has granted teduglutide orphan drug designation for the treatment of Short Bowel Syndrome (SBS). Also, due to the strong medical need for SBS treatments in Japan, the MHLW's expert committee on Unapproved New Drugs and New Indications with High Medical Needs requested that NPS Pharma Japan K.K. develop teduglutide for adult SBS earlier this year. To meet local regulatory requirements, the company is also preparing to initiate a small study in Japanese patients with SBS before the end of this year. In Japan, orphan drug status can be bestowed on drugs or medical devices intended for use in fewer than 50,000 patients for which there is a high medical need. Orphan drugs may be eligible for subsidies and tax credits to reduce the burden of product development, priority consultation and review for marketing authorization, and an extended reexamination period of up to 10 years. The MHLW established the committee on Unapproved New Drugs and New Indications with High Medical Needs to enhance the development of drugs and indications that have been approved for use in the United States and Europe, but are not yet approved in Japan. Due to the strong medical need for SBS treatments in Japan, the committee determined that teduglutide met these criteria and requested that the company develop the drug for adult SBS. Teduglutide received orphan drug designation for the treatment of SBS from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 2000 and the European Medicines Agency in 2001. In the U.S., NPS Pharma markets teduglutide under the trade name Gattex and in the EU, as Revestive.
