U.S. FDA grants orphan drug designation to glepaglutide for the treatment of short bowel syndrome

Copenhagen, Denmark, October 24, 2017 - The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Office of Orphan Products Development (OOPD) has granted an orphan drug designation to glepaglutide for the treatment of the rare disease short bowel syndrome (SBS)*. Glepaglutide is a Zealand-invented long-acting GLP-2 analog that may offer a treatment option for patients with reduced or complete loss of intestinal function. Glepaglutide has been shown to reduce fecal wet weight output as well as indicated increases in both energy, fluid and electrolyte absorption in SBS patients in a Phase 2 trial. Interactions with U.S. and EU regulatory authorities are planned with the aim of moving glepaglutide into Phase 3 clinical trials in 2018.

Britt Meelby Jensen, President and CEO of Zealand, comments:

"The orphan drug designation is great news, both for Zealand and for the patients suffering from short bowel syndrome. The orphan drug designation for glepaglutide enables us to have a closer and more frequent dialogue with the FDA throughout our late stage clinical development. Glepaglutide is one of Zealand's leading product candidates, which we are developing all the way to market, and this designation is an important step for us in our efforts to ensure an efficient path to registration and patient access."

The United States Congress passed the Orphan Drug Act in 1983 to provide incentives for industry investment in treatments for rare conditions. Companies that receive orphan drug designation for their products qualify for various incentives including tax credits for clinical trial costs, relief from prescription drug user fees and the potential for seven years of market exclusivity after the drug is approved.

Short bowel syndrome

Short bowel syndrome (SBS) is a life-threatening and complex chronic severe condition associated with reduced or complete loss of intestinal function. In adults, the main underlying causes of SBS are major intestinal surgery following Crohn's disease, ischemia, radiation damage and surgery. It is estimated that 20,000-40,000 patients are affected by SBS in the U.S. and Europe. The most severely affected people are dependent on daily parenteral support. This requires them to be connected to infusion lines and pumps, which pose significant restrictions on their ability to engage in daily activities.

Aktier/tendens: Unibrew kan ryge op i forventet rolig markedsåbning

22-06-2018 08:07:28
En opjustering fra Royal Unibrew bliver et af fokuspunkterne i fredagens tidlige danske aktiehandel, som generelt ser ud til at ville være præget af mindre bevægelser. Efter torsdagens danske børslukning, hvor det danske C25-indeks sluttede 0,2 pct. lavere i indeks 1119,14, var der ganske vist et lille fald i de amerikanske aktier på Wall Street. Men fredag morgen er der marginale plusser i handle..
