Astellas Submits Supplemental New Drug Application for mirabegron for Use in Combination with solifenacin succinate 5 mg for the Treatment of Overactive Bladder

June 30, 2017

Tokyo, June 30, 2017 - Astellas Pharma Inc. (TSE: 4503, President and CEO: Yoshihiko Hatanaka, “Astellas”) announced today the submission of a supplemental New Drug Application (sNDA) to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) seeking approval for the use of mirabegron in combination with solifenacin succinate 5 mg for the treatment of overactive bladder (OAB) with symptoms of urge urinary incontinence, urgency and urinary frequency. In the United States, mirabegron and solifenacin succinate are marketed as Myrbetriq® and VESIcare®, respectively. Each is approved by the FDA as a monotherapy for the treatment of OAB with symptoms of urge urinary continence, urgency and urinary frequency.

The sNDA submission is based on data from the global Phase 3 SYNERGY I, SYNERGY II and BESIDE studies. These studies, which included more than 5,000 patients with OAB, evaluated combination therapy with mirabegron and solifenacin succinate compared with each drug as monotherapy and placebo. 

"The multinational SYNERGY (I and II) and BESIDE clinical trials reflect our ongoing commitment to treatment for people living with overactive bladder,” said Bernhardt Zeiher, M.D., president of Development at Astellas. “We look forward to FDA’s review of our application for a potential new treatment option for the millions of people living with OAB.”
