FDA Approves Inhaled Antipsychotic (Loxapine)

Post  Admin on Sat Dec 17, 2011 1:23 am

FDA Approves Inhaled Antipsychotic (Loxapine)

Psychopharmacologic Drugs Advisory Committee (PDAC) of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) voted to recommend that ADASUVE(TM) (Staccato® loxapine) be approved for use as a single dose in 24 hours when used with the FDA recommended Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategy (REMS), for the treatment for agitation in patients with schizophrenia or bipolar mania.

About ADASUVE (Staccato loxapine) and the Staccato System
ADASUVE is an anti-agitation product candidate that combines Alexza's proprietary Staccato system with loxapine, an antipsychotic currently available in the U.S. as an oral formulation for the management of schizophrenia. The Staccato system is a hand-held, single-dose inhaler that delivers a medication comparable to intravenous administration, but with greater ease, patient comfort and convenience. In clinical studies, ADASUVE has shown an onset of effect in 10 minutes of dosing, which is the first time point measured in the Phase 3 clinical studies. The ADASUVE NDA contains efficacy and safety data from more than 1,600 patients and subjects, who have been studied in thirteen different clinical trials.
