Information and Explanation of the Issuer to this News:
The safety of BYFAVOTM was evaluated in three pivotal studies in 669 patients undergoing colonoscopy (two studies) or bronchoscopy (one study), of whom 630 received BYFAVOTM. In these studies, the most common adverse reactions (incidence greater than 10%) following BYFAVOTM administration were hypotension, hypertension, diastolic hypertension, systolic hypertension, hypoxia, and diastolic hypotension. The labeling for BYFAVOTM includes a Boxed Warning regarding appropriate training of personnel and equipment that must be available when administering BYFAVOTM, during sedation and during the recovery period of the procedure. The Boxed Warning also addresses risks from concomitant use of BYFAVOTM with opioid analgesics and other sedative hypnotics.
Acacia Pharma's first product, BARHEMSYS(R) (amisulpride injection), was approved by the FDA on 26 February 2020 for the treatment and prevention of postoperative nausea and vomiting (PONV) in adult patients and the company intends to launch both BARHEMSYS(R) and BYFAVOTM in the U.S. during the second half of 2020.
