Now Approved: The Latest Treatment For Some Adults With Late-Onset Pompe Disease – 10/02/23

NOW APPROVED:

Amicus Therapeutics is pleased to inform you that POMBILITI™ in combination with OPFOLDA™ has been approved for the treatment of adult patients with late-onset Pompe disease (lysosomal acid alpha-glucosidase [GAA] deficiency) weighing ≥40 kg and who are not improving on their current enzyme replacement therapy (ERT).

 

Please see full Prescribing Information, including BOXED WARNING, for POMBILITI and full Prescribing Information for OPFOLDA, also available at PombilitiOpfoldaHCP.com.

 

POMBILITI (cipaglucosidase alfa-atga) for injection, for intravenous use, a bis-M6P enriched enzyme, in combination with OPFOLDA (miglustat) 65 mg capsules for oral use, an oral enzyme stabilizer, is the first and only 2-component therapy in late-onset Pompe disease and is designed to maximize enzyme activity.

 

Late-onset Pompe disease (LOPD) is a rare, hereditary, progressive disorder that is usually characterized by limb-girdle muscle weakness and/or respiratory insufficiency. LOPD is caused by mutations in the acid alpha-glucosidase (GAA) gene leading to deficiency of the GAA enzyme and accumulation of lysosomal glycogen in all tissues with a predominant involvement of skeletal muscle. Clinical manifestations include difficulty with motor and respiratory functions.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION

 

WARNING: SEVERE HYPERSENSITIVITY REACTIONS, INFUSION-ASSOCIATED REACTIONS, and RISK OF ACUTE CARDIORESPIRATORY FAILURE IN SUSCEPTIBLE PATIENTS

 

HYPERSENSITIVITY REACTIONS INCLUDING ANAPHYLAXIS

 

Patients treated with POMBILITI have experienced life-threatening hypersensitivity reactions, including anaphylaxis. Appropriate medical support measures, including cardiopulmonary resuscitation equipment, should be readily available during POMBILITI administration. If a severe hypersensitivity reaction (e.g., anaphylaxis) occurs, POMBILITI should be discontinued immediately, and appropriate medical treatment should be initiated. In patients with severe hypersensitivity reaction, desensitization measures to POMBILITI may be considered. The risks and benefits of readministering POMBILITI following severe hypersensitivity reaction should be considered. If mild or moderate hypersensitivity reaction occurs, the infusion rate may be slowed or temporarily stopped. Prior to POMBILITI administration, consider pretreating with antihistamines, antipyretics, and/or corticosteroids.

 

INFUSION-ASSOCIATED REACTIONS (IARs)

 

Patients treated with POMBILITI have experienced severe IARs. If severe IARs occur, immediately discontinue the POMBILITI infusion, initiate appropriate medical treatment, and assess the benefits and risks of readministering POMBILITI following severe IARs. If mild or moderate IARs occur regardless of pretreatment, decreasing the infusion rate or temporarily stopping the infusion may ameliorate the symptoms. IARs may still occur in patients after receiving pretreatment.

 

Patients with an acute underlying illness at the time of POMBILITI infusion may be at greater risk for IARs. Patients with advanced Pompe disease may have compromised cardiac and respiratory function, which may predispose them to a higher risk of severe complications from IARs.

 

RISK OF ACUTE CARDIORESPIRATORY FAILURE IN SUSCEPTIBLE PATIENTS

Patients susceptible to fluid volume overload, or those with acute underlying respiratory illness or compromised cardiac or respiratory function for whom fluid restriction is indicated may be at risk of serious exacerbation of their cardiac or respiratory status during POMBILITI infusion. More frequent monitoring of vitals should be performed during POMBILITI infusion in such patients.

 

CONTRAINDICATION

 

POMBILITI in combination with OPFOLDA is contraindicated in pregnancy.

 

EMBRYO-FETAL TOXICITY

 

Based on findings from animal reproduction studies, POMBILITI in combination with OPFOLDA may cause embryo-fetal harm when administered to a pregnant female and is contraindicated during pregnancy. Verify the pregnancy status in females of reproductive potential prior to initiating treatment with POMBILITI in combination with OPFOLDA. Advise females of reproductive potential to use effective contraception during treatment with POMBILITI in combination with OPFOLDA and for at least 60 days after the last dose.

 

RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH POMBILITI AND OPFOLDA

 

POMBILITI and OPFOLDA must be administered in combination.

 

ADVERSE REACTIONS

 

The most common adverse reactions (≥5%) reported in the pooled safety population of patients treated with POMBILITI in combination with OPFOLDA in the 3 clinical trials were headache, diarrhea, fatigue, nausea, abdominal pain, and pyrexia.

LACTATION

 

Advise females that breastfeeding is not recommended while on treatment with POMBILITI in combination with OPFOLDA.

 

INDICATION
