April 6, 2022 — Guerbet, a global leader in medical imaging offering a comprehensive range of pharmaceutical products, medical devices, and digital and artificial intelligence (AI) solutions for diagnostic and interventional imaging, has recently submitted a New Drug Application (NDA) to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and a Centralized Application for Marketing Authorization to the European Medicine Agency (EMA) for Gadopiclenol, an investigational macrocyclic gadolinium-based contrast agent (GBCA). Those applications have been accepted for review by EMA and FDA on February 24 and March 28, respectively.
In addition, the US-FDA has accepted the request for Priority Review with a goal date for taking action on an application by September 21, 2022. Priority review designation is assigned to applications for drugs that provide significant improvements in the safety or effectiveness of the treatment, diagnosis, or prevention of serious conditions compared to available therapies.
The dossiers are supported by the data from two Phase III studies for the investigational macrocyclic GBCA, Gadopiclenol completed in March 2021. The results from these Phase III studies are available on the ClinicalTrials.gov database (see below).
Gadopiclenol is an investigational macrocyclic gadolinium-based contrast agent developed by Guerbet’s Research & Development team. The efficacy and safety of Gadopiclenol have been evaluated as part of the company’s clinical development plan with a view to obtaining worldwide marketing authorization. No regulatory authority has evaluated the clinical study data for this product to date. Details on Phase III clinical trials are available on the www.ClinicalTrials.gov.
