Camurus announces PDUFA date for Brixadi for the treatment of opioid use disorder in the US

LUND, Sweden, June 26, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Camurus (NASDAQ STO: CAMX) announced today that the New Drug Application (NDA) by Camurus' US licensee Braeburn for Brixaditm (buprenorphine) extended-release weekly and monthly injection for subcutaneous use for moderate to severe opioid use disorder was accepted for review by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The Prescription Drug User Fee Act (PDUFA) action date is set for 15 December 2021.

"We are pleased that the FDA has accepted Braeburn's updated new drug application for Brixadi. We now look forward to the NDA approval and our innovative treatment finally becoming available to US patients with opioid use disorder," says Fredrik Tiberg, President and CEO of Camurus. "The opioid crisis has worsened during the Covid-19 pandemic and there is a significant need for new and effective treatments."

The resubmission is in response to the Complete Response Letter (CRL) issued by the FDA to Braeburn on 1 December 2020 citing deficiencies identified during a pre-approval inspection of Braeburn's third-party manufacturer in the US.

About Brixadi
Brixadi is an investigational, extended-release weekly (8mg, 16mg, 24mg, 32mg) and monthly (64 mg, 96mg, 128mg) injection for subcutaneous use that is under review by FDA for the treatment of moderate to severe opioid use disorder in patients who have initiated treatment with a single dose of a transmucosal buprenorphine product or who are already being treated with buprenorphine. If approved, Brixadi would be used as part of a complete treatment plan to include counseling and psychosocial support. Brixadi will be available through a Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategy (REMS) program and administered only by healthcare providers in a healthcare setting.

During the clinical development program, the safety profile of Brixadi was generally consistent with the known safety profile of oral buprenorphine with the exception of mild-to-moderate injection-site reactions. The most common adverse reactions (occurring in ?5% of patients) associated with Brixadi administration included injection-site pain, headache, constipation, nausea, injection-site erythema, injection-site pruritus, insomnia and urinary tract infections.

Brixaditm is the US trademark for Camurus' product Buvidal® approved for treatment of opioid dependence in the EU, UK, Australia, Switzerland and New Zealand.
