Somatuline Depot sNDA Submitted for Neuroendocrine Tumors

Ipsen Biopharmaceuticals announced that it has submitted a supplemental New Drug Application (sNDA) to the FDA for Somatuline Depot (lanreotide acetate) 120mg injection for the treatment of gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (GEP-NETs). Somatuline Depot, a somatostatin analogue, inhibits the secretion of several endocrine, exocrine, and paracrine functions.

The NDA submission was supported by results from the CLARINET Phase 3 study which demonstrated the antiproliferative effect of Somatuline in the treatment of patients with GEP-NETs. Data from CLARINET showed that investigational treatment with Somatuline substantially prolonged time to disease progression or death vs. placebo (hazard ratio 0.47, P=0.0002). Safety data generated from the CLARINET study were consistent with the known safety profile of Somatuline.
