  • QT Prolongation

Clinical Trials Experience

Because clinical trials are conducted under widely varying conditions, adverse reaction rates observed in the clinical trials of a drug cannot be directly compared to rates in the clinical trials of another drug and may not reflect the rates observed in practice.

The safety of ORLADEYO is primarily based on 24-week (Part 1) data from a 3-part, double-blind, parallel-group, and placebo-controlled study (Trial 1) in 120 patients with Type I or II HAE randomized and dosed with either ORLADEYO 110 mg, 150 mg or placebo, once daily with food. After Week 24, patients who continued in the study received active treatment through 48 weeks.

In Trial 1, a total of 81 patients aged 12 years and older with HAE received at least one dose of ORLADEYO in Part 1. Overall, 66% of patients were female and 93% of patients were Caucasian with a mean age of 41.6 years. The proportion of patients who discontinued study drug prematurely due to adverse reactions was 7% and 3% for patients treated with 110 mg and 150 mg ORLADEYO, respectively, and 3% for placebo-treated patients. No deaths occurred in the trial.

The safety profile of ORLADEYO was generally similar across all subgroups of patients, including analysis by age, sex, and geographic region.

Table 1 shows adverse reactions occurring in ≥10% of patients in any ORLADEYO treatment group that also occurred at a higher rate than in the placebo treatment group in Trial 1.

Gastrointestinal reactions, including abdominal pain, vomiting, and diarrhea occurred more frequently in patients receiving ORLADEYO 150 mg versus ORLADEYO 110 mg or placebo. These reactions generally occurred early after initiation of treatment with ORLADEYO, became less frequent with time, and typically self-resolved. No patients in the ORLADEYO 150 mg dose group and 1 patient in the ORLADEYO 110 mg dose group discontinued treatment due to a gastrointestinal adverse reaction.

Less Common Adverse Reactions

Other adverse reactions that occurred in Part 1 of Trial 1 with an incidence between 5% and <10% at a higher incidence in ORLADEYO-treated patients compared to placebo included headache (9% versus 5%), fatigue (6% versus 3%), and flatulence (6% versus 3%).

A maculopapular drug rash was reported in less than 1% of patients treated with ORLADEYO. The rash resolved, including in subjects who continued dosing.

Safety data are also available from 227 patients enrolled in an ongoing, open-label, long-term safety study (Trial 2) who received ORLADEYO 110 mg (N=100) or 150 mg (N=127) once daily with food and are consistent with the 24-week controlled safety data from Trial 1 (Part 1).

Laboratory Abnormalities

Transaminase Elevations

In Part 1 of Trial 1, a single 150 mg ORLADEYO-treated patient discontinued treatment due to asymptomatic elevated transaminases (ALT >8x the upper limit of normal [ULN] and AST >3x ULN). Total bilirubin was normal. No subject receiving 110 mg or placebo developed transaminase levels >3x ULN. In addition to this patient, 2 ORLADEYO-treated patients developed laboratory-related hepatic adverse events compared to 1 placebo-treated patient. No patient reported serious adverse reactions of elevated transaminases.
