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 TARPEYO has been evaluated in a randomized controlled study in 197 patients.

The most common adverse reactions reported in greater than or equal to 5% of TARPEYO-treated patients are listed in Table 1.

The majority of adverse reactions were mild or moderate in severity.
