UCB Announces U.S. Food and Drug Administration Approves Supplemental New Drug Application (sNDA) for VIMPAT(R) (lacosamide) C-V

UCB announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved a supplemental new drug application (sNDA) for VIMPAT(R) (lacosamide) C-V as monotherapy in the treatment of partial-onset seizures in patients with epilepsy aged 17 years and older.(1) This is a new indication for VIMPAT(R) which is already approved in the U.S. as adjunctive treatment for partial-onset seizures in patients in this age group.(1) This new indication means that adults with partial-onset seizures can be initiated on VIMPAT(R) monotherapy, and patients already on an anti-epileptic drug can be converted to VIMPAT(R) monotherapy. UCB also announced that the FDA has approved a new single loading dose administration option for all formulations of VIMPAT(R), when used as monotherapy or adjunctive therapy in the treatment of partial-onset seizures in patients with epilepsy aged 17 years and older. VIMPAT(R) Monotherapy: The new U.S. monotherapy approval for VIMPAT(R) is based on a Phase 3 historical-control conversion to lacosamide monotherapy study in adult epilepsy patients with partial-onset seizures.(1) The study met its primary endpoint, demonstrating that the exit percentage, defined as the estimated percentage of patients meeting pre-defined exit criteria, for patients converting to lacosamide 400 mg/day was significantly lower than the historical control exit percentage, used as a comparator. Lacosamide 300 mg/day also met the pre-specified criteria for efficacy. The most common adverse reactions in the monotherapy study were similar to those seen in adjunctive therapy studies; however, one adverse reaction, insomnia, was observed at a rate of greater than or equal to 2% and was not reported at a similar rate in previous studies. Insomnia has also been observed in postmarketing experience. Because this study did not include a placebo control group, causality could not be established. In adjunctive therapy studies, the most common adverse reactions (greater than or equal to 10% and greater than placebo) were dizziness, headache, nausea and diplopia. Additional important safety information for VIMPAT(R) in the U.S. is available below.(1) VIMPAT(R) Single Loading Dose: The new single loading dose administration option for VIMPAT(R) as monotherapy or adjunctive treatment of partial-onset seizures in adults with epilepsy allows the initiation of VIMPAT(R) as a single loading dose of 200 mg (oral or injection), followed approximately 12 hours later by a 100 mg twice daily dose (200 mg/day). The most common loading dose adverse events (greater than or equal to 5%) were dizziness, headache, paraesthesia and gait disturbance. The loading dose should be administered with medical supervision considering the VIMPAT(R) pharmacokinetics and increased incidence of CNS adverse reactions. VIMPAT(R) in the European Union: In the European Union, VIMPAT(R) is approved as adjunctive therapy for the treatment of partial-onset seizures with or without secondary generalization in adult and adolescent (16-18 years) patients with epilepsy. VIMPAT(R) may also be initiated with a single loading dose of 200 mg, followed approximately 12 hours later by a 100 mg twice daily (200 mg/day) maintenance dose regimen. Additional important information on VIMPAT(R) loading dose in the European Union is available below. VIMPAT(R) is not approved in the European Union as monotherapy.
