Sanofi : FDA Accepts Sanofi New Drug Application for Once-Daily Fixed-Ratio Combination of Insulin Glargine and Lixisenatide

FDA Accepts Sanofi New Drug Application for

Once-Daily Fixed-Ratio Combination of Insulin Glargine and Lixisenatide

- FDA decision anticipated in August 2016 -

- Regulatory submission based on results from Phase 3 clinical trial program
in adults with type 2 diabetes -

Paris, France - February 22, 2016
-
Sanofiannounced today that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has
accepted the New Drug Application (NDA) for its investigational fixed-ratio
combination of basal insulin glargine 100 Units/mL and GLP-1 receptor agonist
lixisenatide for the treatment of adults with type 2 diabetes.

Following the redemption of a Priority Review Voucher with the submission, an
FDA decision is anticipated in August 2016.

"
The FDA filing notification is an important milestone for Sanofi as we work to
broaden our diabetes portfolio,"
said Pascale Witz, Executive Vice President, Global Diabetes&Cardiovascular,
Sanofi. "Physicians may need to consider fasting and mealtime blood glucose
imbalances
in their overall management of diabetes, and additional treatment options are
needed. We look forward to working with the FDA during the review process
with a view toward bringing this investigational medicine to adults with type
2 diabetes in the U.S."

This NDA submission is based on data from two Phase 3 studies, which enrolled
more than 1,900 patients worldwide to evaluate the safety and efficacy of the
fixed-ratio combination when used in patient populations insufficiently
controlled after oral antidiabetic agents (OADs) and after basal insulin
therapy, respectively. Both studies met their primary endpoints and will be
presented at a medical congress in 2016.

The safety and efficacy of the fixed-ratio combination have not been evaluated
by any regulatory authority, and the proprietary name is under consideration.
Preparations are on track for regulatory submission in the European Union in
March 2016. The investigational GLP-1 receptor agonist lixisenatide was
evaluated in patients with type 2 diabetes and is also currently under review
by the FDA. The NDA for lixisenatide was accepted in September 2015, and an
FDA decision is anticipated in July 2016.
