Source : Taiwan Healthcare+
Published : 2018-10-15

Orient Pharma announced on Sep. 13 that it had obtained Taiwan FDA approval for its new drug ORADUR-ADHD (Methydur Sustained Release Capsules) that treats a attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
"Methydur Sustained Release Capsules are indicated for the treatment of ADHD and will be available in three strengths (22 mg, 33 mg and 44 mg) in Taiwan," stated the company. "Orient Pharma also has stated that it expects to have Methydur Sustained Release Capsules commercially available in Taiwan in 2019, while seeking a partner in China and pursuing regulatory approvals in selected other countries where it has commercialization rights and a commercialization presence."
According to Orient Pharma, a phase 3, multi-center, randomized, double-blind, placebo controlled, two-way cross-over study designed to demonstrate the efficacy and safety of Methydur Sustained Release Capsules in children and adolescents with ADHD aged 6 to 18 years supported the new application.
"There were 110 subjects enrolled in this study, of which 100 evaluable subjects completed the study," stated the company. "For the primary efficacy endpoint, Orient Pharma observed a statistically significant difference between Methydur Sustained Release Capsules and Placebo treatments in the mean change of total score for the Swanson, Nolan, and Pelham-IV (SNAP-IV) teacher form."
Orient Pharma's conducted a safety analysis that indicates that the incidence of adverse events with Methydur Sustained Release Capsules was similar to other approved Methylphenidate products.
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a neurobehavioral condition that is estimated to affect over 5 million (approximately 9%) of U.S. children ages 3-17, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The principal characteristics of ADHD are inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity. The condition presents itself in childhood and can be life long as a significant number of children with ADHD continue to present symptoms as adults. Over 50% of children with ADHD are estimated to be treated by medication, with stimulants such as amphetamine or methylphenidate as first-line treatments.
