Takeda Receives FDA Complete Response Letter for Alogliptin, an Investigational Treatment for Type 2 Diabetes
Date:6/26/2009

DEERFIELD, Ill., June 26, and OSAKA, Japan, June 27, 2009 /PRNewswire/ -- Takeda Pharmaceutical Company Limited ("Takeda") today announced that Takeda Global Research & Development Center, Inc., a wholly owned United States (U.S.) subsidiary received on June 26 (U.S. time) a complete response letter from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regarding the Company's New Drug Application (NDA) for alogliptin, a selective dipeptidyl peptidase IV (DPP-4) inhibitor under investigation for the treatment of type 2 diabetes as an adjunct to diet and exercise. In recent months, the FDA and Takeda have been in discussions about conducting an additional cardiovascular study for alogliptin.

As previously announced on March 6, 2009, the FDA informed Takeda that, although the alogliptin NDA was filed prior to the release of the December 2008 FDA Guidance titled, "Guidance for Industry: Diabetes Mellitus -- Evaluating Cardiovascular Risk in New Antidiabetic Therapies to Treat Type 2 Diabetes," the FDA did not believe that the amount of existing alogliptin clinical data was sufficient to meet certain statistical requirements outlined in that Guidance. The FDA has asked Takeda to conduct an additional cardiovascular safety trial that satisfies the December 2008 FDA Guidance.

"Takeda will continue to promote key initiatives in order to realize sustained growth from a medium- to long-term perspective," said Takeda President & CEO, Yasuchika Hasegawa.
