ChemoCentryx’s Avacopan May Need Another Trial After Tepid Advisory Committee Vote

Executive Summary

Near tie goes to the US FDA? While almost every member of the Arthritis Advisory Committee agreed with agency’s assessment that ChemoCentryx’s trial of avacopan for ANCA vasculitis was poorly designed, making it hard to tease out the drug’s benefit-risk profile, about half were in favor of approval due to the potential to spare patients from the adverse effects of steroids. Others said the sponsor didn’t meet the agency’s standard for approval off just one pivotal study.
