VPRIV - for the treatment of Type 1 Gaucher disease

  • Shire's continued focus remains on providing patients with long term, uninterrupted treatment with VPRIV, with approximately 1,200 patients worldwide currently on treatment. Shire has experienced an increase in demand for VPRIV following the recent announcement of CEREZYME® shortages in the US and other countries. Shire can accommodate a limited number of additional patients prior to approval of the Lexington facility. Shire will carefully monitor and seek to manage this increased demand until the Lexington facility is approved.  


 

REPLAGAL - for the treatment of Fabry disease

  • Earlier this week, Shire initiated a rolling Biologics License Application ("BLA") for REPLAGAL in the US, designated Fast Track by the FDA. Shire plans to submit the final BLA sections in November 2011 and will request Priority Review of this submission in response to the continuing supply shortage of FABRAZYME®. In 2010 Shire withdrew its BLA in order to gather additional clinical data for REPLAGAL. These data, including data from Shire's ongoing US Treatment Protocol, have now been evaluated and will be included in the new filing.

Shire is continuing to experience strong demand for REPLAGAL from both patients new to treatment and patients switching from FABRAZYME. Approximately 2,800 patients worldwide are currently receiving REPLAGAL and Shire can accommodate a modest number of new patients per month prior to approval of the Lexington facility. Shire will continue to carefully monitor the addition of new patients to ensure that we can provide patients with uninterrupted long term supply of REPLAGAL at the recommended dose and frequency.
