Orphazyme has made progress towards resubmission of the NDA for arimoclomol to the FDA and plans to request a Type C Meeting in Q2 2022
Subject to these discussions, the Company aims to resubmit the NDA during H2 2022
Copenhagen, Denmark, February 11, 2022 – Orphazyme A/S (ORPHA.CO; ORPH) (“Orphazyme” or the “Company”), a late-stage biopharmaceutical company pioneering the Heat-Shock Protein response for the treatment of neurodegenerative orphan diseases, today provides an update on the process and anticipated timelines for resubmission of its New Drug Application (NDA) to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for investigational product candidate, arimoclomol, for the treatment of Niemann-Pick disease type C (NPC).
In line with recommendations from the FDA during a Type A Meeting held in October 2021, the Company intends to request a Type C Meeting to discuss the additional data, information, and analyses addressing certain topics in the Complete Response Letter (CRL) to align on a path to resubmission for arimoclomol in NPC with the FDA. The Company expects to request the Type C Meeting in Q2 2022. Subject to these discussions, the Company aims to resubmit the NDA during H2 2022.
Anders Vadsholt, Chief Financial Officer of Orphazyme said, “Requesting a Type C Meeting is the next step in establishing a potential path to resubmission of our NDA to the FDA. NPC is a rare neurodegenerative disease for which there are no approved treatments in the United States, and we look forward to continuing our interactions with the Agency as we seek to gain approval of arimoclomol in the United States for this devastating disease.”
The EU Marketing Authorisation Application (MAA) for arimoclomol for the treatment of NPC was filed with the European Medicines Agency (EMA) in November 2020. As previously communicated, an opinion from the Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP) on this application is expected in Q1 2022.
Christophe Bourdon, Chief Executive Officer of Orphazyme said, “Our team has been working at pace and we are looking forward to be interacting with an ad–hoc expert group in the coming weeks for the European submission.”
