Supernus Submits NDA for SPN-830 for Continuous Treatment of ON-OFF Episodes in Adults with Parkinson’s Disease Who Have Failed Two Treatments

ROCKVILLE, Md., Sept. 14, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Supernus Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: SUPN), a pharmaceutical company focused on developing and commercializing products for the treatment of central nervous system (CNS) diseases, today announced that it has submitted a New Drug Application (NDA) to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for its apomorphine infusion pump (SPN-830) for the continuous treatment of ON-OFF episodes in adults with Parkinson’s disease (PD) whose motor control is unsatisfactory with oral levodopa and at least one other noninvasive PD therapy.
“We believe the continuous treatment of “OFF” episodes may offer PD patients an important alternative over currently available acute treatments,” said Jack Khattar, President and CEO of Supernus. “Current alternatives to acute treatment often require continuous infusion of levodopa through a gastric tube or surgical intervention such as deep brain stimulation. SPN-830, if approved by the FDA, would offer patients a less invasive and a convenient option in the form of a continuous subcutaneous infusion of apomorphine.”The NDA for SPN-830 is based on data from an extensive development program, completed by Supernus’ partners, US WorldMeds, LLC and Brittania Pharmaceuticals Ltd. The program includes the TOLEDO study, a pivotal Phase III study (conducted in Europe, ref. Katzenschlager et al,  Lancet Neurology 2018; 17: 749–59) and a supportive safety and efficacy study (conducted in the US).
