  • Evrysdi treatment duration in months, median (range):  15.2 (0.9-47.0)
  • As follow-up duration is different between groups, the overall rate of adverse events and serious adverse events cannot be compared
  • Initial safety findings from JEWELFISH have been consistent with the safety findings in FIREFISH and SUNFISH

Indication

Evrysdi is indicated for the treatment of spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) in pediatric and adult patients.

 

Interactions with Substrates of MATE Transporters

  • Based on in vitro data, Evrysdi may increase plasma concentrations of drugs eliminated via MATE1 or MATE2-K, such as metformin
  • Avoid coadministration of Evrysdi with MATE (multidrug and toxin extrusion) substrates. If coadministration cannot be avoided, monitor for drug-related toxicities and consider dosage reduction of the coadministered drug if needed

Pregnancy & Breastfeeding

  • Evrysdi may cause embryofetal harm when administered to a pregnant woman. In animal studies, administration of Evrysdi during pregnancy and/or lactation resulted in adverse effects on development. Advise pregnant women of the potential risk to the fetus
  • Pregnancy testing is recommended prior to initiating Evrysdi. Advise female patients to use contraception during treatment with Evrysdi and for at least 1 month after the last dose
  • The developmental and health benefits of breastfeeding should be considered along with the mother’s clinical need for Evrysdi and any potential adverse effects on the breastfed infant

Potential Effects on Male Fertility

  • Counsel male patients that fertility may be compromised by treatment with Evrysdi. Male patients may consider sperm preservation prior to treatment

Most Common Adverse Reactions

  • The most common adverse reactions in later-onset SMA (incidence in at least 10% of patients treated with Evrysdi and more frequent than control) were fever, diarrhea, and rash
  • The most common adverse reactions in infantile-onset SMA were similar to those observed in later-onset SMA patients. Additionally, adverse reactions with an incidence of at least 10% were upper respiratory tract infection (including nasopharyngitis, rhinitis), lower respiratory tract infection (including pneumonia, bronchitis), constipation, vomiting, and cough
  • The safety profile for presymptomatic patients is consistent with the safety profile for symptomatic SMA patients treated with Evrysdi in clinical trials

You may report side effects to the FDA at 1-800-FDA-1088 or www.fda.gov/medwatch. You may also report side effects to Genentech at 1-888-835-2555.
