Boehringer Ingelheim and Eli Lilly and Company announced that the FDA accepted a supplemental New Drug Application (sNDA) for Jardiance (empagliflozin) investigating a potential new indication to lower blood sugar along with diet and exercise in children 10 years and older with type 2 diabetes.

 

“There are clear unmet needs for young people living with type 2 diabetes, which has nearly doubled in prevalence in people aged 10-19 over the past two decades,” said Mohamed Eid, M.D., M.P.H., M.H.A., vice president, Clinical Development & Medical Affairs, Cardio-Renal-Metabolism & Respiratory Medicine, Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals, Inc. “We look forward to working closely with the FDA during the review process and while we await a decision on our efforts to bring another potential treatment option to children 10 years and older with type 2 diabetes.”

The sNDA is based on the results from the DINAMO phase III trial, in which Jardiance was associated with a statistically significant reduction in the primary endpoint of change from baseline in A1c at 26 weeks compared with placebo in participants aged 10-17 years with type 2 diabetes. When added to other baseline treatments (diet, exercise, metformin and/or insulin), Jardiance 10 mg and 25 mg pooled doses reduced A1c by 0.84% compared with placebo at week 26 (95% CI -1.50 to -0.19; P=0.012). Reduction in A1c in participants treated with Tradjenta (linagliptin) was not statistically significant when compared with placebo. A numerical reduction of 0.34% (P=0.2935) was observed. Results were presented during the International Diabetes Federation World Diabetes Congress 2022.

If approved, Jardiance would be the first SGLT2 inhibitor indicated for this vulnerable population.
