eisai co., ltd. (headquarters: tokyo, ceo: haruo naito, “eisai”) announced today that it will launch “chocola bb® mouth ulcer repair shot” (third-class otc drug) for mouth ulcers in japan on thursday, august 25. the product is the first oral care spray to be marketed under the chocola bb brand.

mouth ulcer is a general term that refers to any inflammation of the mucous membrane in the mouth. in many cases, it is thought that nutritional imbalances, lifestyle changes and/or stress lead to a decrease in the mucous membrane’s ability to regenerate, allowing bacteria to penetrate the membrane and cause an ulcer to form.

chocola bb mouth ulcer repair shot is a medicated spray that is effective for mouth ulcers and soothing pain caused by inflammation in the throat. containing antiseptic cetylpyridinium chloride (cpc) that keeps the mouth clean, as well as azulene which acts to repair the mucous membrane, the spray alleviates the symptoms of mouth ulcers by allowing the active ingredients to be directly applied into the mouth. it also comes in a compact form making it portable and easy to use anywhere without having to directly touch the affected area.

centered around the signature otc product chocola bb® plus® (third-class otc drug) for the relief of skin trouble, acne and mouth ulcers, eisai has been expanding the chocola bb brand to suit the needs and lifestyles of its customers such as chocola bb® royal 2 (quasi-drug), a nutritional drink for invigoration when physically fatigued, and chocola bb® joma, a soft drink that contains vitamin b6 (food with nutrient function claims).

through the chocola bb brand, eisai will continue to respond to the diverse needs of female consumers and support an ever-growing number of people to achieve health and beauty in their everyday lives.

eisai co., ltd. (headquarters: tokyo, ceo: haruo naito, “eisai”) announced today that, at its recent meeting with the u.s. food and drug administration (fda), the fda confirmed there was sufficient data to support the advancement of its novel investigational oral beta-secretase cleaving enzyme (bace) inhibitor e2609 into phase iii clinical studies. e2609 was discovered by eisai and is being jointly developed by eisai and biogen inc. (headquarters: massachusetts, united states, ceo: george a. scangos, “biogen”) for early alzheimer’s disease.

based on the clinical and pre-clinical data presented to the fda at the study 202 end of phase ii meeting, the fda confirmed that the data package was sufficient to commence phase iii studies, and acknowledged the outlines of the two phase iii clinical study protocol designs. the study protocol will be a placebo-controlled design in patients with early alzheimer’s disease where the treatment group will be administered a dosage of 50 mg/day of e2609 with the primary outcome endpoint assessed at 24 months. the primary endpoint will be the clinical dementia rating sum of boxes (cdr-sb), with routine safety assessment.

following this discussion with the fda on the phase iii clinical study designs, eisai and biogen intend to have similar discussions with the regulatory authorities in japan and the eu, and to conduct the study as a global, multicenter study.

study 202 was a multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled parallel-group study to evaluate the safety of e2609 administered in patients with early to moderate alzheimer’s disease (including prodromal alzheimer’s disease) with confirmed accumulation of amyloid beta (aβ) by pet (positron emission tomography) screening. the study included three doses of e2609: 5, 15, and 50mg/day. plasma and cerebrospinal fluid (csf) aβ (aβ1-x)* levels were measured in patients prior to receiving e2609 and during the study.

the results of an analysis of study 202 presented at the end of phase ii meeting suggested favorable safety at all doses of e2609 and that total aβ levels in the plasma and csf were reduced in a dose-dependent manner. furthermore, according to an analysis of safety and pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic data from pre-clinical studies as well as study 202 and phase i clinical studies overall, the optimal dose of e2609 was identified as 50 mg/day.

lynn kramer, m.d., chief clinical officer and chief medical officer of eisai neurology business group commented, “we believe that the phase iii clinical study design outline agreed upon will enable us to efficiently conduct studies on bace inhibitors aimed at realizing preemptive medicine, and will accelerate the development of e2609. we are striving to deliver e2609 to patients around the world as soon as possible, and contribute to increasing the benefit for patients.”

eisai co., ltd. (headquarters: tokyo, ceo: haruo naito, “eisai”) announced today that its european regional headquarters eisai europe ltd. (location: u.k.) has received a positive opinion from the european medicines agency’s committee for medicinal products for human use (chmp) on anticancer agent lenvatinib mesylate (generic name, “lenvatinib”) in combination with everolimus for the treatment of adult patients with advanced renal cell carcinoma (rcc) following one prior vascular endothelial growth factor (vegf) targeted therapy. if approved, lenvatinib will be launched under the brand name kisplyx® for this indication.

the chmp’s positive opinion was based on a phase ii clinical study (study 205) that evaluated the safety and efficacy of lenvatinib in combination with everolimus in patients with unresectable advanced or metastatic renal cell carcinoma following one prior vegf-targeted therapy. from the results of the study, the group who received the combination of lenvatinib plus everolimus demonstrated a significant extension in progression free survival, the study’s primary endpoint, as well as a higher objective response rate compared to the everolimus alone group. the most common treatment-emergent adverse events (teaes) reported in the lenvatinib plus everolimus group were diarrhea, decreased appetite and fatigue. the most common teaes of grade 3 or higher were diarrhea, hypertension and fatigue.

the number of patients with renal cancer in europe is estimated to be 115,000, and renal cell carcinoma comprises more than 90% of all malignancies of the kidney. for advanced or metastatic renal cell carcinoma that is difficult to treat with surgery, the standard treatment method is molecular targeted drug therapy, however with low 5-year survival rates, this remains a disease with significant unmet medical need.

currently lenvatinib has been launched in countries including the united states, japan and in europe under the product name lenvima® as a treatment for refractory thyroid cancer. furthermore, in may 2016, lenvatinib was approved in combination with everolimus for the treatment of patients with advanced renal cell carcinoma following one prior vegf-targeted therapy by the u.s. food and drug administration in the united states.

eisai positions oncology as a key therapeutic area, and is aiming to discovery revolutionary new medicines with the potential to cure cancer. eisai remains committed to providing further clinical evidence for lenvatinib aimed at maximizing value of the drug as it seeks to contribute further to addressing the diverse needs of, and increasing the benefits provided to, patients with cancer, their families, and healthcare providers.
