BOTOX® (onabotulinumtoxinA) Receives U.S. Food and Drug Administration Approval for the Treatment of Overactive Bladder for Adults Who Have an Inadequate Response to or Are Intolerant of an Anticholinergic Medication

Allergan, Inc. (NYSE:AGN) announced today that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved BOTOX® (onabotulinumtoxinA) for the treatment of overactive bladder (OAB) with symptoms of urge urinary incontinence, urgency and frequency in adults who have had an inadequate response to or are intolerant of an anticholinergic medication. In two double-blind, randomized, multi-center, placebo-controlled 24-week clinical trials among adults with overactive bladder who had not been adequately managed with anticholinergic treatments, BOTOX® reduced daily urinary incontinence (leakage) episodes as compared to placebo by 50 percent or more by week 12 (reduction of 2.5 episodes from baseline of 5.5 episodes in one study and reduction of 3 episodes from baseline of 5.5 episodes in the second study for those treated with BOTOX® vs. a reduction of 0.9 episodes from a baseline of 5.1 episodes in one study and a reduction of 1.1 episodes from a baseline of 5.7 episodes in the second study for those treated with placebo).1

Allergan has a long-standing commitment to study the potential of BOTOX® to treat a number of different medical conditions

“Allergan has a long-standing commitment to study the potential of BOTOX® to treat a number of different medical conditions,” said Scott Whitcup, M.D., Allergan’s Executive Vice President, Research and Development, Chief Scientific Officer. “With today’s approval, BOTOX® is now approved for 26 different indications in more than 85 countries. Most importantly, today’s FDA approval is a milestone in the treatment of this burdensome condition and will provide a novel option for urologists and their OAB patients.”

While the exact cause is often unknown, OAB is a medical condition that results in an uncontrolled urge to urinate, frequent urination and, in many patients, uncontrollable leakage of urine. In the United States, an estimated 14.7 million adults experience symptoms of OAB with urinary incontinence (unexpected leakage of urine).2 Anticholinergics, which are often prescribed as pills, are used by approximately 3.3 million Americans with OAB, with or without urinary incontinence, to manage their condition.3 It is estimated, however, that greater than 50 percent of these patients stop taking at least one oral medication within 12 months, likely due to an inadequate response to, or intolerance of, the medication.4

“Overactive bladder can be a difficult condition to treat as there have been limited options for patients when currently available medications have failed to provide them with adequate relief,” said Dr. Victor Nitti*, Vice Chairman, Department of Urology and Director of Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery at NYU Langone Medical Center. “With the approval of BOTOX®, we have a new treatment option to offer these patients that has demonstrated efficacy in reducing urinary leakage and other symptoms of OAB with the effect lasting up to six months.”

The median duration for efficacy with BOTOX® at reducing urinary leakage and other symptoms of OAB in the two clinical studies was 135-168 days compared to 88-92 days with placebo based on qualification for retreatment. To qualify for retreatment, at least 12 weeks must have passed since the prior treatment, post-void residual urine volume must have been less than 200 mL and patients must have reported at least two urinary incontinence episodes over three days. BOTOX® treatment relieves OAB symptoms by temporarily calming muscle contractions by blocking the transmission of nerve impulses to the bladder muscle.

BOTOX Cosmetic (onabotulinum toxin A) For Injection, is a sterile, vacuum-dried purified botulinum toxin type A, produced from fermentation of Hall strain Clostridium botulinum type A grown in a medium containing casein hydrolysate, glucose, and yeast extract, intended for intramuscular use. It is purified from the culture solution bydialysis and a series of acid precipitations to a complex consisting of the neurotoxin, and several accessory proteins. The complex is dissolved in sterile sodium chloride solution containing Albumin Human and is sterile filtered (0.2 microns) prior to filling and vacuum-drying.

The primary release procedure for BOTOX Cosmetic uses a cell-based potency assay to determine the potency relative to a reference standard. The assay is specific to Allergan’s products BOTOX and BOTOX Cosmetic. One Unit of BOTOX Cosmetic corresponds to the calculated median intraperitoneal lethal dose (LD50) in mice. Due to specific details of this assay such as the vehicle, dilution scheme and laboratory protocols, Units of biological activity of BOTOX Cosmetic cannot be compared to nor converted into Units of any other botulinum toxin or any toxin assessed with any other specific assay method. The specific activity of BOTOX Cosmetic is approximately 20 Units/nanogram of neurotoxin protein complex.

Each vial of BOTOX Cosmetic contains either 50 Units of Clostridium botulinum type A neurotoxin complex, 0.25 mg of Albumin Human, and 0.45 mg of sodium chloride; or 100 Units of Clostridium botulinum type A neurotoxin complex, 0.5 mg of Albumin Human, and 0.9 mg of sodium chloride in a sterile, vacuum-dried form without a preservative.
