Vimizim for the Treatment of Morquio A
BioMarin announced today that it expects that Vimizim will be reviewed by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration Advisory Committee on November 19, 2013. The Company noted that the FDA has previously granted Vimizim priority review designation and assigned a PDUFA date of February 28, 2014. The European Medicines Agency (EMA) has validated the Vimizim Marketing Authorization Application (MAA) and has granted accelerated review status, which could lead to a (Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use) CHMP opinion before year end. During the second quarter of 2013, the company also submitted the Marketing Authorisation (MA) in Brazil. Ongoing production of bulk drug substance and drug product will allow for a global launch of Vimizim following approvals in multiple countries. Both the FDA and EMA have conducted or scheduled pre-approval inspections associated with the review of the marketing applications.
