Reuters Health Information: Europe gives green light to AbbVie hepatitis C medicine, others

Europe gives green light to AbbVie hepatitis C medicine, others

Last Updated: 2014-11-21

By Reuters Staff

LONDON (Reuters) - European regulators recommended approval for AbbVie's hepatitis C drug dasabuvir, an experimental all-oral regimen for patients infected with the virus that could be an alternative to long courses of a combination of pills and injections.

Sanofi's eliglustat, a medicine to treat the rare genetic disorder Gaucher disease type 1 that was approved in the United States in August, was also recommended in Europe.

Boehringer Ingelheim's drug nintedanib for idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF), and Merck & Co's blood clot preventer vorapaxar, were also all recommended for approval on Friday.

The regulator also gave the nod to Novartis' psoriasis drug secukinumab, which was recommended for approvals by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration last month, and Celgene's apremilast to treat psoriatic arthritis.

Recommendations for marketing approval by the European Medicine Agency's Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use are usually endorsed by the European Commission within a couple of months.
