  • 3 DOSAGE FORMS AND STRENGTHS

    100 mg capsule having a white body with “100 mg” printed in black ink, and a purple cap with “Niraparib” printed in white ink.

  • 4 CONTRAINDICATIONS

    None.

  • 5 WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS

    5.1 Myelodysplastic Syndrome/Acute Myeloid Leukemia

    Myelodysplastic syndrome/acute myeloid leukemia (MDS/AML), including cases with fatal outcome, have been reported in patients who received monotherapy with ZEJULA in clinical trials. In 1,785 patients treated with ZEJULA in clinical trials, MDS/AML occurred in 15 patients (0.8%).

    The duration of therapy with ZEJULA in patients who developed secondary MDS/cancer therapy-related AML varied from 0.5 months to 4.9 years. All of these patients had received previous chemotherapy with platinum agents and/or other DNA-damaging agents, including radiotherapy. Discontinue ZEJULA if MDS/AML is confirmed.

    5.2 Bone Marrow Suppression

    Hematologic adverse reactions, including thrombocytopenia, anemia, neutropenia, and/or pancytopenia have been reported in patients treated with ZEJULA [see Adverse Reactions (6Error! Hyperlink reference not valid.)].

    In PRIMA, the overall incidences of ≥Grade 3 thrombocytopenia, anemia, and neutropenia were reported in 39%, 31%, and 21%, respectively, of patients receiving ZEJULA. Discontinuation due to thrombocytopenia, anemia, and neutropenia occurred in 4%, 2%, and 2%, respectively, of patients. In patients who were administered a starting dose of ZEJULA based on baseline weight or platelet count, ≥Grade 3 thrombocytopenia, anemia, and neutropenia were reported in 22%, 23%, and 15%, respectively, of patients receiving ZEJULA. Discontinuation due to thrombocytopenia, anemia, and neutropenia occurred in 3%, 3%, and 2%, respectively, of patients.

    In NOVA, ≥Grade 3 thrombocytopenia, anemia, and neutropenia were reported in 29%, 25%, and 20%, respectively, of patients receiving ZEJULA. Discontinuation due to thrombocytopenia, anemia, and neutropenia occurred in 3%, 1%, and 2%, respectively, of patients.

    In QUADRA, ≥Grade 3 thrombocytopenia, anemia, and neutropenia were reported in 28%, 27%, and 13%, respectively, of patients receiving ZEJULA. Discontinuation due to thrombocytopenia, anemia, and neutropenia occurred in 4%, 2%, and 1%, respectively, of patients.

    Do not start ZEJULA until patients have recovered from hematological toxicity caused by previous chemotherapy (≤Grade 1). Monitor complete blood counts weekly for the first month, monthly for the next 11 months of treatment, and periodically after this time. If hematological toxicities do not resolve within 28 days following interruption, discontinue ZEJULA and refer the patient to a hematologist for further investigations, including bone marrow analysis and blood sample for cytogenetics [see Dosage and Administration (2.3)].

    5.3 Hypertension and Cardiovascular Effects

    Hypertension and hypertensive crisis have been reported in patients treated with ZEJULA.

    In PRIMA, Grade 3 to 4 hypertension occurred in 6% of patients treated with ZEJULA compared with 1% of placebo-treated patients with a median time from first dose to first onset of 43 days (range: 1 to 531 days) and with a median duration of 12 days (range: 1 to 61 days). There were no discontinuations due to hypertension.

    In NOVA, Grade 3 to 4 hypertension occurred in 9% of patients treated with ZEJULA compared with 2% of placebo-treated patients with a median time from first dose to first onset of 77 days (range: 4 to 504 days) and with a median duration of 15 days (range: 1 to 86 days). Discontinuation due to hypertension occurred in <1% of patients.

    In QUADRA, Grade 3 to 4 hypertension occurred in 5% of patients treated with ZEJULA with a median time from first dose to first onset of 15 days (range: 1 to 316 days) and with a median duration of 7 days (range: 1 to 118 days). Discontinuation due to hypertension occurred in <0.2% of patients.

    Monitor blood pressure and heart rate at least weekly for the first 2 months, then monthly for the first year and periodically thereafter during treatment with ZEJULA. Closely monitor patients with cardiovascular disorders, especially coronary insufficiency, cardiac arrhythmias, and hypertension. Medically manage hypertension with antihypertensive medications and adjustment of the dose of ZEJULA, if necessary [see Dosage and Administration (2.3), Nonclinical Toxicology (13.2)].

    5.4 Posterior Reversible Encephalopathy Syndrome

    Posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome (PRES) occurred in 0.1% of 2,165 patients treated with ZEJULA in clinical trials and has also been described in postmarketing reports [see Adverse Reactions (6.2Error! Hyperlink reference not valid.)]. Signs and symptoms of PRES include seizure, headache, altered mental status, visual disturbance, or cortical blindness, with or without associated hypertension. A diagnosis of PRES requires confirmation by brain imaging, preferably magnetic resonance imaging.

    Monitor all patients treated with ZEJULA for signs and symptoms of PRES. If PRES is suspected, promptly discontinue ZEJULA and administer appropriate treatment. The safety of reinitiating ZEJULA in patients previously experiencing PRES is not known.

    5.5 Embryo-Fetal Toxicity

    Based on its mechanism of action, ZEJULA can cause fetal harm when administered to a pregnant woman [see Clinical Pharmacology (12.1)]. ZEJULA has the potential to cause teratogenicity and/or embryo-fetal death since niraparib is genotoxic and targets actively dividing cells in animals and patients (e.g., bone marrow) [see Warnings and Precautions (5.2), Nonclinical Toxicology (13.1)]. Due to the potential risk to a fetus based on its mechanism of action, animal developmental and reproductive toxicology studies were not conducted with niraparib.

    Apprise pregnant women of the potential risk to a fetus. Advise females of reproductive potential to use effective contraception during treatment and for 6 months after the last dose of ZEJULA [see Use in Specific Populations (8.1, 8.3)].

    5.6 Allergic Reactions to FD&C Yellow No. 5 (Tartrazine)

    ZEJULA capsules contain FD&C Yellow No. 5 (tartrazine), which may cause allergic-type reactions (including bronchial asthma) in certain susceptible persons. Although the overall incidence of FD&C Yellow No. 5 (tartrazine) sensitivity in the general population is low, it is frequently seen in patients who also have aspirin hypersensitivity.

  • 6 ADVERSE REACTIONS

    The following clinically significant adverse reactions are described elsewhere in the labeling:

    MDS/AML [see Warnings and Precautions (5.1)]
    Bone marrow suppression [see Warnings and Precautions (5.2)]
    Hypertension and cardiovascular effects [see Warnings and Precautions (5.3)]
    Posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome [see Warnings and Precautions (5.4)]

    6.1 Clinical Trials Experience

    Because clinical trials are conducted under widely varying conditions, adverse reaction rates observed in the clinical trials of a drug cannot be directly compared with rates in the clinical trials of another drug and may not reflect the rates observed in practice.

    The most common adverse reactions of all grades in >10% of 1,314 patients who received ZEJULA in the pooled PRIMA, NOVA, and QUADRA trials were nausea (65%), thrombocytopenia (60%), anemia (56%), fatigue (55%), constipation (39%), musculoskeletal pain (36%), abdominal pain (35%), vomiting (33%), neutropenia (31%), decreased appetite (24%), leukopenia (24%), insomnia (23%), headache (23%), dyspnea (22%), rash (21%), diarrhea (18%), hypertension (17%), cough (16%), dizziness (14%), acute kidney injury (13%), urinary tract infection (12%), and hypomagnesemia (11%).

    First-Line Maintenance Treatment of Advanced Ovarian Cancer

    The safety of ZEJULA for the treatment of patients with advanced ovarian cancer following first-line treatment with platinum-based chemotherapy was studied in the PRIMA trial, a placebo-controlled, double-blind study in which 728 patients received niraparib or placebo. Among patients who received ZEJULA, the median duration of treatment was 11.1 months (range: 0.03 to 29 months).

    All Patients Receiving ZEJULA in PRIMA: Serious adverse reactions occurred in 32% of patients receiving ZEJULA. Serious adverse reactions in >2% of patients were thrombocytopenia (16%), anemia (6%), and small intestinal obstruction (2.9%). Fatal adverse reactions occurred in 0.4% of patients, including intestinal perforation and pleural effusion (1 patient each).

    Permanent discontinuation due to adverse reactions occurred in 12% of patients who received ZEJULA. Adverse reactions resulting in permanent discontinuation in >1% of patients who received ZEJULA included thrombocytopenia (3.7%), anemia (1.9%), and nausea and neutropenia (1.2% each).

    Adverse reactions led to dose reduction or interruption in 80% of patients, most frequently from thrombocytopenia (56%), anemia (33%), and neutropenia (20%).

    Table 4 and Table 5 summarize the common adverse reactions and abnormal laboratory findings, respectively, observed in all patients treated with ZEJULA in the PRIMA study.

    Patients Receiving ZEJULA with Dose Based on Baseline Weight or Platelet Count in PRIMA: Among patients who received ZEJULA with the dose based on weight and platelet count, the median duration of treatment was 11 months (range: 1 day to 16 months).

    Serious adverse reactions occurred in 27% of patients receiving ZEJULA. Serious adverse reactions in >2% of patients were anemia (8%), and thrombocytopenia (7%). No fatal adverse reactions occurred.

    Permanent discontinuation due to adverse reactions occurred in 14% of patients who received ZEJULA. Adverse reactions resulting in permanent discontinuation in >2% of patients who received ZEJULA included thrombocytopenia and anemia (3% each) and nausea (2.4%).

    Adverse reactions led to dose reduction or interruption in 72% of patients, most frequently from thrombocytopenia (40%), anemia (23%), and neutropenia (15%).

    Table 6 and Table 7 summarize adverse reactions and abnormal laboratory findings in the group of patients who received ZEJULA.

    Treatment of Advanced Ovarian Cancer after 3 or More Chemotherapies

    The safety of monotherapy with ZEJULA 300 mg once daily has been studied in QUADRA, a single-arm study in 463 patients with recurrent high-grade serous epithelial ovarian, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal cancer who had been treated with 3 or more prior lines of therapy. The median duration of overall study treatment was 3 months (range: 0.03 to 32 months). For the indicated QUADRA population, the median duration was 4 months (range: 0.1 to 30 months).

    Fatal adverse reactions occurred in 2% of patients, including cardiac arrest.

    Serious adverse reactions occurred in 43% of patients receiving ZEJULA. Serious adverse reactions in >3% of patients were small intestinal obstruction (7%), vomiting (6%), nausea (5%), and abdominal pain (4%).

    Permanent discontinuation due to adverse reactions (Grade 1 to 4) occurred in 21% of patients who received ZEJULA.

    Adverse reactions led to dose reduction or interruption in 73% of patients receiving ZEJULA. The most common adverse reactions (>5%) resulting in dose reduction or interruption of ZEJULA were thrombocytopenia (40%), anemia (21%), neutropenia (11%), nausea (13%), vomiting (11%), fatigue (9%), and abdominal pain (5%).

    Table 10 and Table 11 summarize the common adverse reactions and abnormal laboratory findings, respectively, observed in patients treated with ZEJULA in QUADRA.

  • 8 USE IN SPECIFIC POPULATIONS

    8.1 Pregnancy

    Risk Summary

    Based on its mechanism of action, ZEJULA can cause fetal harm when administered to pregnant women [see Clinical Pharmacology (12.1)]. There are no data regarding the use of ZEJULA in pregnant women to inform the drug-associated risk. ZEJULA has the potential to cause teratogenicity and/or embryo-fetal death since niraparib is genotoxic and targets actively dividing cells in animals and patients (e.g., bone marrow) [see Warnings and Precautions (5.2), Nonclinical Toxicology (13.1)]. Due to the potential risk to a fetus based on its mechanism of action, animal developmental and reproductive toxicology studies were not conducted with niraparib. Apprise pregnant women of the potential risk to a fetus.

    The background risk of major birth defects and miscarriage for the indicated population is unknown. In the U.S. general population, the estimated background risk of major birth defects and miscarriage in clinically recognized pregnancies is 2% to 4% and 15% to 20%, respectively.

    8.2 Lactation

    Risk Summary

    No data are available regarding the presence of niraparib or its metabolites in human milk, or on its effects on the breastfed child or milk production. Because of the potential for serious adverse reactions in a breastfed child, advise a lactating woman not to breastfeed during treatment with ZEJULA and for 1 month after receiving the final dose.

    8.3 Females and Males of Reproductive Potential

    ZEJULA can cause fetal harm when administered to a pregnant woman [see Use in Specific Populations (8.1)].

    Pregnancy Testing

    Verify the pregnancy status of females of reproductive potential prior to initiating treatment with ZEJULA.

    Contraception

    Females: Advise females of reproductive potential to use effective contraception during treatment with ZEJULA and for at least for 6 months following the last dose.

    Infertility

    Males: Based on animal studies, ZEJULA may impair fertility in males of reproductive potential [see Nonclinical Toxicology (13.1)].

    8.4 Pediatric Use

    The safety and effectiveness of ZEJULA have not been established in pediatric patients.

    8.5 Geriatric Use

    In PRIMA, 39% of patients were aged 65 years or older and 10% were aged 75 years or older. In NOVA, 35% of patients were aged 65 years or older and 8% were aged 75 years or older. No overall differences in safety and effectiveness of ZEJULA were observed between these patients and younger patients but greater sensitivity of some older individuals cannot be ruled out.

    8.6 Renal Impairment

    No dose adjustment is necessary for patients with mild (CLcr: 60 to 89 mL/min) to moderate (CLcr: 30 to 59 mL/min) renal impairment. The degree of renal impairment was determined by creatinine clearance as estimated by the Cockcroft-Gault equation. The safety of ZEJULA in patients with severe renal impairment or end-stage renal disease undergoing hemodialysis is unknown.

    8.7 Hepatic Impairment

    For patients with moderate hepatic impairment, reduce the starting dosage of niraparib to 200 mg once daily [see Dosage and Administration (2.4)]. Niraparib exposure increased in patients with moderate hepatic impairment [total bilirubin ≥1.5 x upper level of normal (ULN) to 3.0 x ULN and any aspartate transaminase (AST) level]. Monitor patients for hematologic toxicity and reduce the dose further, if needed [see Dosage and Administration (2.3)].

    For patients with mild hepatic impairment (total bilirubin <1.5 x ULN and any AST level or bilirubin ≤ ULN and AST > ULN), no dose adjustment is needed.

    The recommended dose of ZEJULA has not been established for patients with severe hepatic impairment (total bilirubin >3.0 x ULN and any AST level) [see Clinical Pharmacology (12.3)].

  • 11 DESCRIPTION

    Niraparib is an orally available poly (ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP) inhibitor.

    The chemical name for niraparib tosylate monohydrate is 2-{4-[(3S)-piperidin-3-yl]phenyl}-2H-indazole 7-carboxamide 4-methylbenzenesulfonate hydrate (1:1:1). The molecular formula is C26H30N4O5S and it has a molecular weight of 510.61 amu. The molecular structure is shown below:

    Chemical Structure

    Niraparib tosylate monohydrate is a white to off-white, non-hygroscopic crystalline solid. Niraparib solubility is pH independent below the pKa of 9.95, with an aqueous free base solubility of 0.7 mg/mL to 1.1 mg/mL across the physiological pH range.

    Each ZEJULA capsule contains 159.4 mg niraparib tosylate monohydrate equivalent to 100 mg niraparib free base as the active ingredient. The inactive ingredients in the capsule fill are magnesium stearate and lactose monohydrate. The capsule shell consists of titanium dioxide and gelatin in the white capsule body and FD&C Blue No. 1, FD&C Red No. 3, FD&C Yellow No. 5 (tartrazine), and gelatin in the purple capsule cap. The black printing ink consists of shellac, dehydrated alcohol, isopropyl alcohol, butyl alcohol, propylene glycol, purified water, strong ammonia solution, potassium hydroxide, and black iron oxide. The white printing ink consists of shellac, dehydrated alcohol, isopropyl alcohol, butyl alcohol, propylene glycol, sodium hydroxide, povidone, and titanium dioxide.

  • 12 CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY

    12.1 Mechanism of Action

    Niraparib is an inhibitor of PARP enzymes, including PARP-1 and PARP-2, that play a role in DNA repair. In vitro studies have shown that niraparib-induced cytotoxicity may involve inhibition of PARP enzymatic activity and increased formation of PARP-DNA complexes resulting in DNA damage, apoptosis, and cell death. Increased niraparib‑induced cytotoxicity was observed in tumor cell lines with or without deficiencies in BRCA1/2. Niraparib decreased tumor growth in mouse xenograft models of human cancer cell lines with deficiencies in BRCA1/2 and in human patient‑derived xenograft tumor models with HRD that had either mutated or wild-type BRCA1/2.

    12.2 Pharmacodynamics

    The pharmacodynamic response of niraparib has not been characterized.

    Hypertension and Cardiovascular Effects

    Niraparib has the potential to cause effects on pulse rate and blood pressure in patients receiving the recommended dose, which may be related to pharmacological inhibition of the dopamine transporter (DAT), norepinephrine transporter (NET), and serotonin transporter (SERT) [see Nonclinical Toxicology (13.2)].

    In the PRIMA study, mean pulse rate and blood pressure increased over baseline in the niraparib arm relative to the placebo arm at most on-study assessments. Mean greatest increases from baseline in pulse rate on treatment were 22.4 and 14.0 beats/min in the niraparib and placebo arms, respectively. Mean greatest increases from baseline in systolic blood pressure on treatment were 24.4 and 19.6 mmHg in the niraparib and placebo arms, respectively. Mean greatest increases from baseline in diastolic blood pressure on treatment were 15.9 and 13.9 mmHg in the niraparib and placebo arms, respectively.

    In the NOVA study, mean pulse rate and blood pressure increased over baseline in the niraparib arm relative to the placebo arm at all on-study assessments. Mean greatest increases from baseline in pulse rate on treatment were 24.1 and 15.8 beats/min in the niraparib and placebo arms, respectively. Mean greatest increases from baseline in systolic blood pressure on treatment were 24.5 and 18.3 mmHg in the niraparib and placebo arms, respectively. Mean greatest increases from baseline in diastolic blood pressure on treatment were 16.5 and 11.6 mmHg in the niraparib and placebo arms, respectively.

    Cardiac Electrophysiology

    The potential for QTc prolongation with niraparib was evaluated in a randomized, placebo‑controlled trial in patients with cancer (367 patients on niraparib and 179 patients on placebo). No large changes in the mean QTc interval (>20 ms) were detected in the trial following the treatment of niraparib 300 mg once daily.

    12.3 Pharmacokinetics

    Following a single-dose administration of 300 mg niraparib, the mean (±SD) peak plasma concentration (Cmax) was 804 (±403) ng/mL. The exposure (Cmax and AUC) of niraparib increased in a dose-proportional manner with daily doses ranging from 30 mg (0.1 times the approved recommended dose) to 400 mg (1.3 times the approved recommended dose). The accumulation ratio of niraparib exposure following 21 days of repeated daily doses was approximately 2-fold for doses ranging from 30 to 400 mg.

    Absorption

    The absolute bioavailability of niraparib is approximately 73%. Following oral administration of niraparib, peak plasma concentration, Cmax, is reached within 3 hours.

    Concomitant administration of a high-fat meal (800 to 1,000 calories with approximately 50% of total caloric content of the meal from fat) did not significantly affect the pharmacokinetics of niraparib.

    Niraparib is 83.0% bound to human plasma proteins. The average (±SD) apparent volume of distribution (Vd/F) was 1,220 (±1,114) L. In a population pharmacokinetic analysis, the Vd/F of niraparib was 1,074 L in patients with cancer .

    Elimination

    Following multiple daily doses of 300 mg of niraparib, the mean half-life (t1/2) is 36 hours. In a population pharmacokinetic analysis, the apparent total clearance (CL/F) of niraparib was 16.2 L/h in patients with cancer.

    Metabolism: Niraparib is metabolized by carboxylesterases (CEs) to form a major inactive metabolite, which subsequently undergoes glucuronidation.

    Excretion: Following administration of a single oral 300-mg dose of radio-labeled niraparib, the average percent recovery of the administered dose over 21 days was 47.5% (range: 33.4% to 60.2%) in urine and 38.8% (range: 28.3% to 47.0%) in feces. In pooled samples collected over 6 days, unchanged niraparib accounted for 11% and 19% of the administered dose recovered in urine and feces, respectively.

    Specific Populations

    Age (18 to 65 years), race/ethnicity, and mild to moderate renal impairment (CLcr ≥30 to 90 mL/min) had no clinically significant effect on the pharmacokinetics of niraparib.

    The effect of severe renal impairment (CLcr <30 mL/min) or end-stage renal disease undergoing hemodialysis on the pharmacokinetics of niraparib is unknown.

    Patients with Hepatic Impairment: Mild hepatic impairment (total bilirubin <1.5 x ULN and any AST level or bilirubin ≤ ULN and AST > ULN) had no clinically significant effect on the pharmacokinetics of niraparib.

    In a trial of patients with moderate hepatic impairment (total bilirubin ≥1.5 x ULN to 3.0 x ULN and any AST level) (n = 8), niraparib AUCinf was 1.56 (90% CI: 1.06 to 2.30) times higher compared with patients with normal hepatic function (n = 9) following administration of a single 300-mg dose. Niraparib dosage reduction is recommended for patients with moderate hepatic impairment [see Dosage and Administration (2.4)]. Moderate hepatic impairment did not have an effect on niraparib Cmax or on niraparib protein binding.

    The effect of severe hepatic impairment (total bilirubin >3.0 x ULN and any AST level) on the pharmacokinetics of niraparib is unknown.

    Drug Interaction Studies

    No clinical drug interaction studies have been performed with ZEJULA.

    In Vitro Studies: Inhibition of Cytochrome P450 (CYP) Enzymes: Neither niraparib nor the major primary metabolite M1 is an inhibitor of CYP1A2, CYP2B6, CYP2C8, CYP2C9, CYP2C19, CYP2D6, and CYP3A4.

           Induction of CYP Enzymes: Neither niraparib nor M1 is a CYP3A4 inducer. Niraparib weakly induces CYP1A2 in vitro.

           Substrate of CYP Enzymes: Niraparib is a substrate of CEs and the resulting M1 is further metabolized through the formation of glucuronides in vivo.

           Inhibition of Uridine 5'-Diphospho-Glucuronosyltransferases (UGTs): Niraparib did not exhibit inhibitory effect against the UGT isoforms (UGT1A1, UGT1A4, UGT1A9, and UGT2B7) up to 200 microM in vitro. Therefore, the potential for a clinically relevant inhibition of UGTs by niraparib is minimal.

           Inhibition of Transporter Systems: Niraparib is a weak inhibitor of breast cancer resistance protein (BCRP), but does not inhibit P-glycoprotein (P-gp), bile salt export pump (BSEP), or multidrug resistance-associated protein 2 (MRP2).

    Niraparib is an inhibitor of multidrug and toxin extrusion (MATE) 1 and 2 with IC50 of 0.18 microM and ≤0.14 microM, respectively. Increased plasma concentrations of coadministered drugs that are substrates of these transporters (e.g., metformin) cannot be excluded.

    The M1 metabolite is not an inhibitor of P-gp, BCRP, BSEP, MRP2, or MATE1 or 2. Neither niraparib nor M1 is an inhibitor of organic anion transporting polypeptide (OATP)1B1, OATP1B3, organic cation transporter (OCT1)1, organic anion transporter (OAT)1, OAT3, or OCT2.

           Substrate of Transporter Systems: Niraparib is a substrate of P-gp and BCRP. Niraparib is not a substrate of BSEP, MRP2, or MATE1 or 2. The M1 metabolite is not a substrate of P-gp, BCRP, BSEP, or MRP2. However, M1 is a substrate of MATE1 and 2. Neither niraparib nor M1 is a substrate of OATP1B1, OATP1B3, OCT1, OAT1, OAT3, or OCT2.

  • 13 NONCLINICAL TOXICOLOGY

    13.1 Carcinogenesis, Mutagenesis, Impairment of Fertility

    Carcinogenicity studies have not been conducted with niraparib.

    Niraparib was clastogenic in an in vitro mammalian chromosomal aberration assay and in an in vivo rat bone marrow micronucleus assay. This clastogenicity is consistent with genomic instability resulting from the primary pharmacology of niraparib and indicates potential for genotoxicity in humans. Niraparib was not mutagenic in a bacterial reverse mutation assay (Ames) test.

    Fertility studies in animals have not been conducted with niraparib. In repeat-dose oral toxicity studies, niraparib was administered daily for up to 3 months’ duration in rats and dogs. Reduced sperm, spermatids, and germ cells in epididymides and testes were observed at doses ≥10 mg/kg and ≥1.5 mg/kg in rats and dogs, respectively. These dose levels resulted in systemic exposures approximately 0.3 and 0.012 times, respectively, the human exposure (AUC0-24h) at the recommended dose of 300 mg daily. There was a trend toward reversibility of these findings 4 weeks after dosing was stopped.

    13.2 Animal Toxicology and/or Pharmacology

    In vitro, niraparib bound to DAT, NET, and SERT and inhibited uptake of norepinephrine and dopamine in cells with IC50 values that were lower than the Cmin at steady-state in patients receiving the recommended dose. Niraparib has the potential to cause effects in patients related to inhibition of these transporters (e.g., cardiovascular, central nervous system).

    Intravenous administration of niraparib to vagotomized dogs over 30 minutes at 1, 3, and 10 mg/kg resulted in an increased range of arterial pressures of 13% to 20%, 18% to 27%, and 19% to 25%, respectively, and increased range of heart rates of 2% to 11%, 4% to 17%, and 12% to 21%, respectively, above pre-dose levels. The unbound plasma concentrations of niraparib in dogs at these dose levels were approximately 0.5, 1.5, and 5.8 times the unbound Cmax at steady-state in patients receiving the recommended dose.

    In addition, niraparib crossed the blood-brain barrier in rats and monkeys following oral administration. The cerebrospinal fluid:plasma Cmax ratios of niraparib administered at 10 mg/kg orally to 2 rhesus monkeys were 0.10 and 0.52.

  • 14 CLINICAL STUDIES

    14.1 First-Line Maintenance Treatment of Advanced Ovarian Cancer

    PRIMA (NCT02655016) was a double-blind, placebo-controlled trial in which patients (N = 733) in complete or partial response to first-line platinum-based chemotherapy were randomized 2:1 to ZEJULA or matched placebo. Initially, the patients received a starting dosage of 300 mg once daily regardless of body weight or platelet count. The study was amended to include a starting dose of 200 mg for patients weighing <77 kg (<170 lbs) OR with a platelet count of <150,000/mcL or 300 mg for patients weighing ≥77 kg (≥170 lbs) AND who had a platelet count ≥150,000/mcL.

    Patients were randomized post-completion of first-line platinum-based chemotherapy plus surgery. Randomization was stratified by best response during the front-line platinum regimen (complete response vs. partial response), neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NACT) (yes vs. no), and HRD status (positive vs. negative or not determined). HRD status was determined using the FDA-approved Myriad myChoice CDx assay. HRD positive status included either tumor BRCA mutant (tBRCAm) or a genomic instability score (GIS) ≥42.

    The major efficacy outcome measure, progression-free survival (PFS), was determined by blinded independent central review (BICR) per Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) version 1.1. In some cases, criteria other than RECIST, such as clinical signs and symptoms and increasing CA-125, were also applied. Overall survival was an additional efficacy outcome measure. PFS testing was performed hierarchically: first in the homologous recombination (HR)-deficient (HRD positive) population, then in the overall population. The median age of 62 ranged from 32 to 85 years among patients randomized with ZEJULA and 33 to 88 years among patients randomized with placebo. Eighty-nine percent of all patients were White. Sixty-nine percent of patients randomized with ZEJULA and 71% of patients randomized with placebo had an Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group Performance Status (ECOG PS) of 0 at study baseline. Approximately 45% of patients were enrolled in the U.S. or Canada. In the overall population, 65% of patients had stage III disease and 35% had stage IV disease. Sixty-seven percent of the patients received NACT. Sixty-nine percent of the patients had a complete response to the first-line platinum-based chemotherapy. Approximately 35% (n = 258) of patients received a starting dose of 200 or 300 mg depending on baseline body weight and platelet count. Among those patients, 186 patients received a starting dose of 200 mg.

    PRIMA demonstrated a statistically significant improvement in PFS for patients randomized to ZEJULA as compared with placebo in the HR-deficient and overall population (Table 12, Figure 1, and Figure 2).

    14.2 Maintenance Treatment of Recurrent Ovarian Cancer

    NOVA (NCT01847274) was a double-blind, placebo-controlled trial in which patients (N = 553) with platinum-sensitive recurrent epithelial ovarian, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal cancer were randomized 2:1 to ZEJULA 300 mg orally daily or matched placebo within 8 weeks of the last therapy. Treatment was continued until disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. All patients had received at least 2 prior platinum-containing regimens and were in response (complete or partial) to their most recent platinum-based regimen.

    Randomization was stratified by time to progression after the penultimate platinum therapy (6 to <12 months and ≥12 months), use of bevacizumab in conjunction with the penultimate or last platinum regimen (yes/no), and best response during the most recent platinum regimen (complete response and partial response). Eligible patients were assigned to 1 of 2 cohorts based on the results of the BRACAnalysis CDx. Patients with deleterious or suspected deleterious germline BRCA mutations (gBRCAm) were assigned to the germline BRCA-mutated (gBRCAmut) cohort (n = 203), and those without germline BRCA mutations were assigned to the non-gBRCAmut cohort (n = 350).

    The major efficacy outcome measure, PFS, was determined primarily by central independent assessment per RECIST version 1.1. In some cases, criteria other than RECIST, such as clinical signs and symptoms and increasing CA-125, were also applied.

    The median age of patients ranged from 57 to 64 years among patients treated with ZEJULA and 58 to 67 years among patients treated with placebo. Eighty-six percent of all patients were White. Sixty-seven percent of patients receiving ZEJULA and 69% of patients receiving placebo had an ECOG PS of 0 at study baseline. Approximately 40% of patients were enrolled in the U.S. or Canada, and 51% of all patients were in complete response to most recent platinum-based regimen, with 39% on both arms with an interval of 6 to 12 months since the penultimate platinum regimen. Twenty-six percent of those treated with ZEJULA and 31% treated with placebo had received prior bevacizumab therapy. Approximately 40% of patients had 3 or more lines of treatment.

    The trial demonstrated a statistically significant improvement in PFS for patients randomized to ZEJULA as compared with placebo in the gBRCAmut cohort and the non-gBRCAmut cohort (Table 13, Figure 3, and Figure 4).

    14.3 Treatment of Advanced Ovarian Cancer after 3 or More Chemotherapies

    The efficacy of ZEJULA was studied in 98 patients with advanced ovarian cancer with HRD positive tumors in the single-arm QUADRA (NCT02354586) trial. Patients were required to have been treated with 3 or more prior lines of chemotherapy and those with prior exposure to PARP inhibitors were excluded. Patients were selected using a clinical trial assay. Those without BRCA mutations must have progressed at least 6 months after their last dose of platinum therapy. All patients received ZEJULA capsules at a starting dosage of 300 mg once daily as monotherapy until disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

    HRD positive status was determined using the Myriad myChoice CDx as either tBRCAm (n = 63) and/or a GIS ≥42 (n = 35). GIS is an algorithmic measurement of loss of heterozygosity, telomeric allelic imbalance, and large-scale state transitions.

    The major efficacy outcome measures were objective response rate (ORR) and duration of response as assessed by the investigator according to RECIST v. 1.1.

    The median age of the patients was 63 years (range: 39 to 91 years), the majority were White (82%), and all had an ECOG PS of 0 (59%) or 1 (41%).

    The efficacy results for QUADRA are summarized in Table 14.

    Table 14. Efficacy Results–QUADRA (Investigator Assessment)

    What is the most important information I should know about ZEJULA?

    ZEJULA may cause serious side effects including:

    Bone marrow problems called myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) or a type of cancer of the blood called acute myeloid leukemia (AML). Some people who have ovarian cancer and who have received previous treatment with chemotherapy or certain other medicines for their cancer have developed MDS or AML during treatment with ZEJULA. MDS or AML may lead to death. If you develop MDS or AML, your healthcare provider will stop treatment with ZEJULA.
    Symptoms of low blood cell counts (low red blood cells, low white blood cells, and low platelets) are common during treatment with ZEJULA, but can be a sign of serious bone marrow problems, including MDS or AML. Symptoms may include:
    weakness
    feeling tired
    weight loss
    frequent infections
    fever
    shortness of breath
    blood in urine or stool
    bruising or bleeding more easily

    Your healthcare provider will do blood tests to check your blood cell counts:

    before treatment with ZEJULA.
    weekly for the first month of treatment with ZEJULA.
    every month for the next 11 months, then as needed during treatment with ZEJULA.
    High blood pressure. High blood pressure is common during treatment with ZEJULA, and can become serious. Your healthcare provider will check your blood pressure and heart rate at least weekly for the first 2 months, then monthly for the first year and as needed thereafter during your treatment with ZEJULA.
    Posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome (PRES). PRES is a condition that affects the brain and may happen during treatment with ZEJULA. If you have headache, vision changes, confusion, or seizure with or without high blood pressure, please contact your healthcare provider.

    See “What are the possible side effects of ZEJULA?” for more information about side effects.

    What is ZEJULA?

    ZEJULA is a prescription medicine used for the:

    maintenance treatment of adults with advanced ovarian cancer, fallopian tube cancer, or primary peritoneal cancer. ZEJULA is used after the cancer has responded (complete or partial response) to treatment with platinum-based chemotherapy.
    maintenance treatment of adults with ovarian cancer, fallopian tube cancer, or primary peritoneal cancer that comes back. ZEJULA is used after the cancer has responded (complete or partial response) to treatment with platinum-based chemotherapy.
    treatment of adults with advanced ovarian cancer, fallopian tube cancer, or primary peritoneal cancer who have been treated with 3 or more prior types of chemotherapy and who have tumors with:
    a certain BRCA gene mutation, or
    gene mutation problems and who have progressed more than 6 months after their last treatment with platinum-based chemotherapy.

    Your healthcare provider will perform a test to make sure that ZEJULA is right for you.

    It is not known if ZEJULA is safe and effective in children.

    Before taking ZEJULA, tell your healthcare provider about all of your medical conditions, including if you:

    have heart problems.
    have liver problems.
    have high blood pressure.
    are allergic to FD&C Yellow No. 5 (tartrazine) or aspirin. ZEJULA capsules contain FD&C Yellow No. 5 (tartrazine), which may cause allergic-type reactions (including bronchial asthma) in certain people, especially people who also have an allergy to aspirin.
    are pregnant or plan to become pregnant. ZEJULA can harm your unborn baby and may cause loss of pregnancy (miscarriage).
    If you are able to become pregnant, your healthcare provider may perform a pregnancy test before you start treatment with ZEJULA.
    Females who are able to become pregnant should use effective birth control (contraception) during treatment with ZEJULA and for 6 months after the last dose of ZEJULA. Talk to your healthcare provider about birth control methods that may be right for you.
    Tell your healthcare provider right away if you become pregnant.
    are breastfeeding or plan to breastfeed. It is not known if ZEJULA passes into your breast milk. Do not breastfeed during treatment with ZEJULA and for 1 month after the last dose of ZEJULA. Talk to your healthcare provider about the best way to feed your baby during this time.

    Tell your healthcare provider about all the medicines you take, including prescription and over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements.

    How should I take ZEJULA?

    Take ZEJULA exactly as your healthcare provider tells you to.
    Take ZEJULA 1 time each day, at the same time each day.
    ZEJULA may be taken with or without food.
    ZEJULA capsules should be swallowed whole. Do not chew, crush, or split ZEJULA capsules before swallowing.
    Taking ZEJULA at bedtime may help relieve any nausea symptoms you may have.
    Do not stop taking ZEJULA without first talking with your healthcare provider.
    If you miss a dose of ZEJULA, take your next dose at your scheduled time. Do not take an extra dose to make up for a missed dose.
    If you vomit after taking a dose of ZEJULA, do not take an extra dose. Take your next dose at your scheduled time.
    If you take too much ZEJULA, call your healthcare provider or go to the nearest hospital emergency room right away.
