Novo Nordisk receives positive opinion from the European regulatory authorities for Refixia® (nonacog beta pegol, N9-GP) for the treatment of haemophilia B

24 March - The CHMP under the European Medicines Agency have adopted a positive opinion for the use of Refixia® (nonacog beta pegol, N9-GP), recommending marketing authorisation for the treatment of adolescents and adults with haemophilia B. The CHMP recommends Refixia®, the brand name for N9-GP, to be indicated for prophylaxis and on-demand treatment of bleeding as well as for surgical procedures in adolescent (≥12 years of age) and adult patients with haemophilia B. “We are excited about the positive opinion obtained for Refixia® and it represents a significant milestone in our efforts to expand the treatment options for patients with haemophilia,” said Mads Krogsgaard Thomsen, executive vice president and chief scientific officer of Novo Nordisk. “We believe Refixia® with its strong clinical profile provides haemophilia B patients better protection against bleeds, even into damaged joints, and an overall improved quality of life.”

CHMP provides positive opinion for EU label update for Novo Nordisk’s Tresiba® based on data from SWITCH trials 

24 March - The CHMP, under the European Medicines Agency, has issued a positive opinion, recommending an update of the label for Tresiba® (insulin degludec) to include data from the SWITCH 1 and 2 clinical trials. In the trials, Tresiba®, the new-generation once-daily basal insulin, demonstrated clinically relevant reductions in hypoglycaemia compared with insulin glargine U100 in people with type 1 and type 2 diabetes.

“Following the submission of the application to the EMA in November 2016, we are very pleased to have received a positive opinion from the CHMP for the label update already at this point in time,” said Mads Krogsgaard Thomsen, executive vice president and chief science officer at Novo Nordisk. “An inclusion of the SWITCH trial results in the label will further support the clinical profile of Tresiba®”.
