6.1 Clinical Trials Experience

(Extensive changes; please refer to label)

7 Drug Interactions

7.1 Effects of Other Drugs on Iclusig

(Subsection title revised; Additions and/or revisions underlined)

Strong CYP3A Inhibitors

Coadministration of Iclusig with a strong CYP3A inhibitor increases ponatinib plasma concentrations [see Clinical Pharmacology (12.3)], which may increase the risk of Iclusig adverse reactions. Avoid coadministration of Iclusig with strong CYP3A inhibitors. If coadministration of Iclusig with strong CYP3A inhibitors cannot be avoided, reduce the Iclusig dosage [see Dosage and Administration (2.3)].

Strong CYP3A Inducers

Coadministration of Iclusig with a strong CYP3A inducer decreases ponatinib plasma concentrations [see Clinical Pharmacology (12.3)]. Avoid coadministration of Iclusig with strong CYP3A inducers unless the benefit outweighs the risk of decreased ponatinib exposure. Monitor patients for reduced efficacy. Selection of concomitant medication with no or minimal CYP3A induction potential is recommended.

8 Use in Specific Populations

8.5 Geriatric Use

(Additions and/or revisions underlined)

Of the 94 patients with CP-CML who received Iclusig at a starting dose of 45 mg in OPTIC, 17% were 65 years and older and 2.1% were 75 years and older. Patients aged 65 years and older had a lower ?1% BCR-ABL1IS rate at 12 months (29%) as compared with patients less than 65 years of age (45%). AOEs occurred in 38% (6/16) of patients 65 years and older and 8% (6/78) of patients less than 65 years of age [see Warnings and Precautions (5.1)].

Of the 449 patients who received Iclusig in PACE, 35% were 65 years and older and 8% were

75 years and older. In patients with CP-CML, patients aged 65 years and older had a lower major cytogenetic response rate (40%) as compared with patients less than 65 years of age (65%). In patients with AP-CML, BP-CML, and Ph+ ALL, patients aged 65 years and older had a similar hematologic response rate (45%) as compared with patients less than 65 years of age (44%). AOEs occurred in 35% (54/155) of patients 65 years and older and in 21% (61/294) of patients less than 65 years of age [see Warnings and Precautions (5.1)].

Patients aged 65 years or older are more likely to experience adverse reactions including vascular occlusion, decreased platelet count, peripheral edema, increased lipase, dyspnea, asthenia, muscle spasms, and decreased appetite. In general, dose selection for an elderly patient should be cautious, reflecting the greater frequency of decreased hepatic, renal, or cardiac function, and of concomitant disease or other drug therapy.

8.6 Hepatic Impairment

(Additions and/or revisions underlined)

Patients with hepatic impairment are more likely to experience adverse reactions compared to patients with normal hepatic function. Reduce the starting dose of Iclusig for patients with pre- existing hepatic impairment (Child-Pugh A, B, or C) [see Dosage and Administration (2.4), Clinical Pharmacology (12.3)]. The safety of multiple doses, or doses higher than 30 mg, has not been studied in patients with hepatic impairment.

(Extensive changes; please refer to label)

PATIENT COUNSELING INFORMATION

(Additions and/or revisions underlined)

Advise the patient to read the FDA-approved patient labeling (Medication Guide).  

Arterial Occlusive Events and Venous Thromboembolic Events

Inform patients that serious arterial thromboses (including arterial stenosis sometimes requiring revascularization) and VTEs have occurred. Advise patients to immediately contact their healthcare provider with any symptoms suggestive of a blood clot such as chest pain, shortness of breath, weakness on one side of the body, speech problems, leg pain, or leg swelling [see Warnings and Precautions (5.1, 5.2)].

Tumor Lysis Syndrome

Inform patients of the possibility of developing TLS and to immediately contact their healthcare provider for any signs or symptoms associated with TLS [see Warnings and Precautions (5.14)]. Advise patients to be adequately hydrated when taking Iclusig to reduce the risk of TLS.

Instructions for Taking Iclusig

Advise patients to take Iclusig exactly as prescribed and not to change their dose or to stop taking Iclusig unless they are told to do so by their healthcare provider. Iclusig may be taken with or without food. Iclusig tablets should be swallowed whole. Patients should not cut, crush or dissolve the tablets.

Patients should not take two doses at the same time to make up for a missed dose.

Advise patients not to drink grapefruit juice or eat grapefruit as it may increase the amount of Iclusig in their blood and therefore increase their risk of adverse reactions.

Arterial Occlusion:

  • Arterial occlusions have occurred in at least 35% of Iclusig-treated patients. Some patients experienced more than 1 type of event. Events observed included fatal myocardial infarction, stroke, stenosis of large arterial vessels of the brain, severe peripheral vascular disease, and the need for urgent revascularization procedures. Patients with and without cardiovascular risk factors, including patients age 50 years or younger, experienced these events. Monitor for evidence of arterial occlusion. Interrupt or stop Iclusig immediately for arterial occlusion...

Venous Thromboembolism

  • Venous occlusive events have occurred in 6% of Iclusig-treated patients. Monitor for evidence of venous thromboembolism. Consider dose modification or discontinuation of Iclusig in patients who develop serious venous thromboembolism.

Heart Failure:

  • Heart failure, including fatalities, occurred in 9% of Iclusig-treated patients...

5 Warnings and Precautions

5.1 Arterial Occlusion

(additions and/or revisions are underlined)

Arterial occlusions, including fatal myocardial infarction...severe peripheral vascular disease have occurred in at least 35% of Iclusig-treated patients from the phase 1 and phase 2 trials. With a minimum of 48 months follow-up for ongoing patients (N=133) in the phase 2 trial, 33% (150/449) of Iclusig- treated patients experienced a cardiac vascular (21%), peripheral vascular (12%), or cerebrovascular (9%) arterial occlusive event; some patients experienced more than 1 type of arterial occlusive event.

Iclusig can cause fatal and life-threatening arterial occlusion within 2 weeks of starting treatment, and at dose levels as low as 15 mg per day. Iclusig can also cause recurrent or multi-site vascular occlusion. Patients have required revascularization procedures (coronary, cerebrovascular, and peripheral arterial).

In the phase 2 trial, the median time to onset of the first cardiac vascular, cerebrovascular, and peripheral vascular arterial occlusive events was 193 (range: 1 - 1355), 526 (range: 5 - 1339), and 478 (range: 3 - 1344) days, respectively.

Patients with and without cardiovascular risk factors, including patients age 50 years or younger, experienced these events. The most common risk factors observed in patients with arterial occlusive events were hypertension (62%; 93/150), hyperlipidemia (61%; 91/150), and history of cardiac disease (48%; 72/150). Arterial occlusion adverse events were more frequent with increasing age...

If RPLS is diagnosed, interrupt Iclusig treatment and resume treatment only once the event is resolved and if the benefit of continued treatment outweighs the risk of RPLS.

5.17 Embryo-Fetal Toxicity

(additions and/or revisions are underlined)

Based on its mechanism of action and findings from animals studies, Iclusig can cause fetal harm when administered to a pregnant woman. In animal reproduction studies, oral administration of ponatinib to pregnant rats during organogenesis caused adverse developmental effects at exposures lower than human exposures at the recommended human dose. Advise pregnant women of the potential risk to the fetus. Advise females of reproductive potential to use effective contraception during treatment with Iclusig and for 3 weeks after the last dose.

6 Adverse Reactions

6.1 Clinical Trial Experience

(Additions and/or revisions are underlined)

All patients received a starting dose of 45 mg Iclusig once daily ...  Interruptions and dose adjustments to 30 mg once daily or 15 mg once daily were allowed for the management of treatment toxicity. Additionally, after approximately 2 years of follow-up, patients who were still taking a 45 mg daily dose were recommended to undergo a dose reduction, in response to the continued occurrence of arterial occlusive events and venous thromboembolic events in the clinical trial.

At the time of analysis (48 months of follow-up), 133 patients (30%) were ongoing (110 CP-CML; 20 AP-CML; 3 BP- CML; 0 Ph+ ALL), and the median duration of treatment with Iclusig was 32.2 months in patients with CP-CML, 19.4 months in patients with AP-CML, 2.9 months in patients with BP-CML, and 2.7 months in patients with Ph+ ALL. The median dose intensity in patients with CP-CML was 29 mg /day or 64% of the 45 mg starting dose; median dose intensity was greater in patients with advanced disease patients. Seventy one percent (318/449) of patients experienced a dose interruption of more than three days and 68% (304/449) experienced a dose reduction.

The most common adverse reactions (greater than or equal to 5%) that led to dose modifications (interruption or dose reduction) include thrombocytopenia (31%), neutropenia (14%), lipase increased (13%), arterial occlusive events (13%), abdominal pain (12%), rash (9%), anemia (6%), pancreatitis (6%), ALT increased (5%) and hypertension (5%).

At the time of the analysis, 69% of the ongoing patients (92/133 patients) were reported to be receiving 15 mg; with 26% (35/133) and 5% (6/133) of Iclusig-treated patients receiving 30 mg and 45 mg, respectively.

… Overall, the most common non-hematologic adverse reactions (greater than or equal to 20%) were abdominal pain, rash, constipation, headache, dry skin, fatigue, hypertension, pyrexia, arthralgia, nausea, diarrhea, lipase increased, vomiting, myalgia and pain in extremity. The rates of treatment-emergent adverse reactions resulting in discontinuation were 19% in CP-CML, 12% in AP-CML … The most common adverse reactions that led to treatment …

6.2 Postmarketing Experience

(Newly added subsection)

The following adverse reactions have been identified during post approval use of Iclusig. Because these reactions are reported voluntarily from a population of uncertain size, it is not always possible to reliably estimate their frequency or establish a causal relationship to drug exposure:

Reversible posterior leukoencephalopathy syndrome (RPLS) – also known as Posterior Reversible Encephalopathy Syndrome - PRES)

7 Drug Interactions

7.4 Drugs that are Substrates of the P-gp or ABCG2 Transporter Systems

(Newly added subsection)

Ponatinib inhibits the P-glycoprotein (P-gp), ATP-binding cassette G2 (ABCG2) [also known as BCRP], and bile salt export pump (BSEP) transporter systems in vitro.

8 Use in Specific Populations

8. 3 Females and Males of Reproductive Potential

(PLLR conversion)

Iclusig can cause fetal harm when administered to pregnant women.

Pregnancy Testing

Verify the pregnancy status of females of reproductive potential prior to initiating Iclusig treatment.

Contraception

Females

Advise females of reproductive potential to use effective contraception during treatment with Iclusig and for 3 weeks after the last dose.

Infertility

Based on animal data, ponatinib may impair fertility in females of reproductive potential. It is not known whether these effects on fertility are reversible.

8.1 Pregnancy

(PLLR conversion)

...There are no available data on Iclusig use in pregnant women. In animal reproduction studies, oral administration of ponatinib to pregnant rats during organogenesis caused adverse developmental effects at doses lower than human exposures at the recommended human dose. Advise pregnant women of the potential risk to a fetus.

All pregnancies have a background risk of birth defect, loss, or other adverse outcomes. The estimated background risk of major birth defects and miscarriage for the indicated population is unknown. The background risk in the U.S. general population of major birth defects is 2-4% and of miscarriage is 15-20% of clinically recognized pregnancies.

Data

Animal Data

Ponatinib was studied for effects on embryo-fetal development in pregnant rats given oral doses of 0.3, 1, and 3 mg/kg/day during organogenesis (25 rats per group)...

8.2 Lactation

(PLLR conversion)

Risk Summary

There is no data on the presence of ponatinib in human milk, the effects on the breastfed infant or on milk production. Because of the potential for serious adverse reactions in breastfed infants from ponatinib including arterial occlusion, venous thromboembolism, heart failure, and hepatotoxicity, advise women not to breastfeed during treatment with Iclusig and for 6 days following the last dose.

8.4 Pediatric Use

(additions and/or revisions are underlined)

Safety and effectiveness have not been established in pediatric patients.

Juvenile Animal Toxicity Data

A juvenile toxicity study in 15-day-old rats was conducted with daily oral gavage administration of ponatinib at 0.75, 1.5, or 3 mg/kg/day for 21 days. There were no adverse effects of ponatinib on juvenile rat developmental parameters (vaginal opening, preputial separation or bone measurements) observed in this study. Once daily oral administration of 3 mg/kg/day ponatinib to juvenile rats beginning on Day 15 postpartum (pp) resulted in mortality related to inflammatory effects after 6 to 7 days following initiation of treatment. The dose of 3 mg/kg/day is approximately 0.32 times the clinical dose on a mg/m2 basis for a child.

8.5 Geriatric Use

(additions and/or revisions are underlined)

In patients with CP-CML, patients of age greater than or equal to 65 years had a lower major cytogenetic response rate (40%) as compared with patients less than 65 years of age (65%).  In patients with AP-CML, BP-CML, and Ph+ ALL, patients of age greater than or equal to 65 years had a similar hematologic response rate (45%) as compared with patients less than 65 years of age (44%).  Forty percent of patients greater than or equal to 65 years had arterial occlusion events...

5 Warnings and Precautions

Increased Toxicity in Newly Diagnosed Chronic Phase CML

  • In a prospective randomized clinical trial in the first line treatment of newly diagnosed patients with chronic phase (CP) CML, single agent Iclusig 45 mg once-daily increased the risk of serious adverse reactions 2-fold compared to single agent imatinib 400 mg once-daily. The median exposure to treatment was less than 6 months. The trial was halted for safety in October 2013.
  • Arterial and venous thrombosis and occlusions occurred at least twice as frequently in the Iclusig arm compared to the imatinib arm. Compared to imatinib-treated patients, Iclusig-treated patients exhibited a greater incidence of myelosuppression, pancreatitis, hepatotoxicity, cardiac failure, hypertension, and skin and subcutaneous tissue disorders. Iclusig is not indicated and is not recommended for the treatment of patients with newly diagnosed CP-CML.
