GlaxoSmithKline plc Research Reports
On August 26, 2014, GlaxoSmithKline plc (GSK) announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved a supplemental New Drug Application (sNDA) for its once-daily use of Promacta® (eltrombopag) in patients with severe aplastic anaemia (SAA) who have had an insufficient response to immunosuppressive therapy (IST). According to GSK, SAA is a blood disorder where the bone marrow fails to make enough red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. The Company stated that Eltrombopag, an oral thrombopoietin receptor agonist, works by helping to induce proliferation and differentiation of bone marrow stem cells to increase production of blood cells. GSK informed that sNDA approval is based on results from an investigator-sponsored Phase II study (09-H-0154) conducted by the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). GSK notified that prior to this approval, Promacta gained Breakthrough Therapy designation status from the FDA in January 2014 and Priority Review in April 2014. Dr. Paolo Paoletti, President of Oncology, GSK, said, "FDA approval of Promacta addresses a significant treatment need for this very rare but serious blood disorder in those who have failed current treatment options."
