Bristol-Myers Squibb Says FDA Oks Supplemental NDA For SUSTIVA - Quick Facts

Bristol-Myers Squibb Company (BMY), a biopharmaceutical company, Friday said the US Food And Drug Administration, or FDA, approved a supplemental new drug application or sNDA for SUSTIVA, including dosing recommendations for HIV-1 infected pediatric patients three months to three years old and weighing at least 3.5 kg. This approval offers a once-daily option as part of a regimen for this population and includes a 'capsule sprinkle' administration method for patients who cannot swallow capsules or tablets.

This sNDA was based on results from three open-label studies that evaluated the pharmacokinetics, safety, and antiretroviral activity of SUSTIVA in combination with other antiretroviral agents in 182 antiretroviral-naïve and -experienced HIV-1 infected pediatric patients (three months to 21 years of age) for a median of 123 weeks. Virologic and immunologic response was observed across all ages at the end of the studies, as measured by HIV RNA and CD4 cell count.

SUSTIVA is a non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor or NNRTI that was originally approved in the U.S. in 1998 to treat HIV-1 infected children three years of age or older and weighing at least 10 kg.
