Keeping Track: Terlipressin Falls Short Of US FDA Approval; Novel NDAs From Pfizer And Apellis; New BTDs For Sanofi, BeyondSpring
The latest drug development news and highlights from the Pink Sheet’s US FDA Performance Tracker.
When the US FDA approved Olumiant (baricitinib) for RA, it insisted on a lower dose because of fears of blood clots. Now that an NIH trial has shown that the product plus Gilead’s Veklury (remdesivir) provided a statistically significant reduction in time to recovery versus remdesivir alone for hospitalized COVID patients, Olumaint may get an emergency use authorization from FDA to treat a condition that itself causes blood clots. That doesn't mean the black box is going away; it's just a reminder that there is as much magic and mystery to medicine sometimes as there is science.
Olumiant (baricitinib) plus Gilead’s Veklury (remdesivir) provided a statistically significant reduction in time to recovery versus remdesivir alone for hospitalized patients in US NIAID’s ACTT-2 clinical trial.
