FULL PRESCRIBING INFORMATION: CONTENTS*
PEMAZYRE is indicated for the treatment of adults with previously treated, unresectable locally advanced or metastatic cholangiocarcinoma with a fibroblast growth factor receptor 2 (FGFR2) fusion or other rearrangement as detected by an FDA-approved test [see Dosage and Administration (2.1)].
This indication is approved under accelerated approval based on overall response rate and duration of response [see Clinical Studies (14.1)]. Continued approval for this indication may be contingent upon verification and description of clinical benefit in a confirmatory trial(s).
Select patients for the treatment of locally advanced or metastatic cholangiocarcinoma with PEMAZYRE based on the presence of an FGFR2 fusion or rearrangement as detected by an FDA-approved test [see Clinical Studies (14.1)].
Information on FDA-approved test(s) for the detection of an FGFR2 fusion or rearrangement in cholangiocarcinoma is available at http://www.fda.gov/CompanionDiagnostics.
The recommended dosage of PEMAZYRE is 13.5 mg orally once daily for 14 consecutive days followed by 7 days off therapy, in 21-day cycles. Continue treatment until disease progression or unacceptable toxicity occurs.
Take PEMAZYRE with or without food at approximately the same time every day [see Clinical Pharmacology (12.3)].
Swallow tablets whole. Do not crush, chew, split, or dissolve tablets.
If the patient misses a dose of PEMAZYRE by 4 or more hours or if vomiting occurs, resume dosing with the next scheduled dose.
The recommended dose reductions for adverse reactions are provided in Table 1.
|Dose Reduction||Recommended Dosage|
|First||9 mg once daily for first 14 days of each 21-day cycle|
|Second*||4.5 mg once daily for first 14 days of each 21-day cycle|
The recommended dosage modifications for adverse reactions are provided in Table 2.
|Adverse Reaction||Severity*||PEMAZYRE Dosage Modification|

|Serum phosphate >10 mg/dL ||
|Other Adverse Reactions||Grade 3||
Avoid concomitant use of strong and moderate CYP3A inhibitors with PEMAZYRE. If concomitant use with a strong or moderate CYP3A inhibitor cannot be avoided:
If concomitant use of a strong or moderate CYP3A inhibitor is discontinued, increase the PEMAZYRE dosage (after 3 plasma half-lives of the CYP3A inhibitor) to the dosage that was used before starting the strong or moderate inhibitor [see Clinical Pharmacology (12.3)].
Retinal Pigment Epithelial Detachment (RPED)
PEMAZYRE can cause RPED, which may cause symptoms such as blurred vision, visual floaters, or photopsia. Clinical trials of PEMAZYRE did not conduct routine monitoring including optical coherence tomography (OCT) to detect asymptomatic RPED; therefore, the incidence of asymptomatic RPED with PEMAZYRE is unknown.
Among 466 patients who received PEMAZYRE across clinical trials, RPED occurred in 6% of patients, including Grade 3-4 RPED in 0.6%. The median time to first onset of RPED was 62 days. RPED led to dose interruption of PEMAZYRE in 1.7% of patients, and dose reduction and permanent discontinuation in 0.4% and in 0.4% of patients, respectively. RPED resolved or improved to Grade 1 levels in 87.5% of patients who required dosage modification of PEMAZYRE for RPED.
Perform a comprehensive ophthalmological examination including OCT prior to initiation of PEMAZYRE and every 2 months for the first 6 months and every 3 months thereafter during treatment. For onset of visual symptoms, refer patients for ophthalmologic evaluation urgently, with follow-up every 3 weeks until resolution or discontinuation of PEMAZYRE.
Modify the dose or permanently discontinue PEMAZYRE as recommended [see Dosage and Administration (2.3)].
Among 466 patients who received PEMAZYRE across clinical trials, dry eye occurred in 27% of patients, including Grade 3-4 in 0.6% of patients. Treat patients with ocular demulcents as needed.
Monitor for hyperphosphatemia and initiate a low phosphate diet when serum phosphate level is > 5.5 mg/dL. For serum phosphate levels > 7 mg/dL, initiate phosphate lowering therapy and withhold, reduce the dose, or permanently discontinue PEMAZYRE based on duration and severity of hyperphosphatemia [see Dosage and Administration (2.3)].
Based on findings in an animal study and its mechanism of action, PEMAZYRE can cause fetal harm when administered to a pregnant woman. Oral administration of pemigatinib to pregnant rats during the period of organogenesis caused fetal malformations, fetal growth retardation, and embryo-fetal death at maternal exposures lower than the human exposure based on area under the curve (AUC) at the clinical dose of 13.5 mg.
Advise pregnant women of the potential risk to the fetus. Advise female patients of reproductive potential to use effective contraception during treatment with PEMAZYRE and for 1 week after the final dose. Advise males with female partners of reproductive potential to use effective contraception during treatment with PEMAZYRE and for 1 week after the final dose [see Use in Specific Populations (8.1, 8.3)].
The following adverse reactions are discussed elsewhere in the labeling:
Because clinical trials are conducted under widely varying conditions, adverse reaction rates observed in the clinical trials of a drug cannot be directly compared to rates in the clinical trials of another drug and may not reflect the rates observed in practice.
The safety of PEMAZYRE was evaluated in FIGHT-202, which included 146 patients with previously treated, locally advanced or metastatic cholangiocarcinoma [see Clinical Studies (14.1)]. Patients were treated orally with PEMAZYRE 13.5 mg once daily for 14 days on followed by 7 days off therapy until disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. The median duration of treatment was 181 days (range: 7 to 730 days).
The median age of PEMAZYRE-treated patients was 59 years (range 26-78), 58% were females, and 71% were White.
Serious adverse reactions occurred in 45% of patients receiving PEMAZYRE. Serious adverse reactions in ≥ 2% of patients who received PEMAZYRE included abdominal pain, pyrexia, cholangitis, pleural effusion, acute kidney injury, cholangitis infective, failure to thrive, hypercalcemia, hyponatremia, small intestinal obstruction, and urinary tract infection. Fatal adverse reactions occurred in 4.1% of patients, including failure to thrive, bile duct obstruction, cholangitis, sepsis, and pleural effusion.
Permanent discontinuation due to an adverse reaction occurred in 9% of patients who received PEMAZYRE. Adverse reactions requiring permanent discontinuation in ≥1% of patients included intestinal obstruction and acute kidney injury.
Dosage interruptions due to an adverse reaction occurred in 43% of patients who received PEMAZYRE. Adverse reactions requiring dosage interruption in ≥ 1% of patients included stomatitis, palmar-plantar erythrodysesthesia syndrome, arthralgia, fatigue, abdominal pain, AST increased, asthenia, pyrexia, ALT increased, cholangitis, small intestinal obstruction, alkaline phosphatase increased, diarrhea, hyperbilirubinemia, electrocardiogram QT prolonged, decreased appetite, dehydration, hypercalcemia, hyperphosphatemia, hypophosphatemia, back pain, pain in extremity, syncope, acute kidney injury, onychomadesis, and hypotension.
Dose reductions due to an adverse reaction occurred in 14% of patients who received PEMAZYRE. Adverse reactions requiring dosage reductions in ≥1% of patients who received PEMAZYRE included stomatitis, arthralgia, palmar-plantar erythrodysesthesia syndrome, asthenia, and onychomadesis.
Table 3 summarizes the adverse reactions in FIGHT-202. Table 4 summarizes laboratory abnormalitiesin FIGHT-202.

Clinically relevant adverse reactions occurring in ≤ 10% of patients included fractures (2.1%). In all patients treated with pemigatinib, 1.3% experienced pathologic fractures (which included patients with and without cholangiocarcinoma [N=466]). Soft tissue mineralization, including cutaneous calcification, calcinosis, and non-uremic calciphylaxis associated with hyperphosphatemia were observed with PEMAZYRE treatment.
|Laboratory Abnormality||All Grades† (%)||Grades ≥ 3 (%)|
|Increased alanine aminotransferase||43||4.1|

|Increased alkaline phosphatase||41||11|
Within the first 21-day cycle of PEMAZYRE dosing, serum creatinine increased (mean increase of 0.2 mg/dL) and reached steady state by Day 8, and then decreased during the 7 days off therapy. Consider alternative markers of renal function if persistent elevations in serum creatinine are observed [see Clinical Pharmacology (12.3)].
Strong and Moderate CYP3A Inducers
Concomitant use of PEMAZYRE with a strong or moderate CYP3A inducer decreases pemigatinib plasma concentrations, [see Clinical Pharmacology (12.3)] which may reduce the efficacy of PEMAZYRE. Avoid concomitant use of strong and moderate CYP3A inducers with PEMAZYRE.
Strong and Moderate CYP3A Inhibitors
Concomitant use of a strong or moderate CYP3A inhibitor with PEMAZYRE increases pemigatinib plasma concentrations, [see Clinical Pharmacology (12.3)] which may increase the incidence and severity of adverse reactions. Avoid concomitant use of strong and moderate CYP3A inhibitors with PEMAZYRE. Reduce PEMAZYRE dosage if concomitant use of strong and moderate CYP3A inhibitors cannot be avoided [see Dosage and Administration (2.2)].
Based on findings in an animal study and its mechanism of action, PEMAZYRE can cause fetal harm or loss of pregnancy when administered to a pregnant woman [see Clinical Pharmacology (12.1)]. There are no available data on the use of PEMAZYRE in pregnant women. Oral administration of pemigatinib to pregnant rats during the period of organogenesis at maternal plasma exposures below the human exposure at the clinical dose of 13.5 mg resulted in fetal malformations, fetal growth retardation, and embryo-fetal death (see Data). Advise pregnant women of the potential risk to a fetus.
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.
Once daily oral administration of pemigatinib to pregnant rats during the period of organogenesis resulted in 100% embryofetal mortality due to post-implantation loss at doses ≥ 0.3 mg/kg (approximately 0.6 times the human exposure based on AUC at the clinical dose of 13.5 mg). Fetal survival was unaffected at 0.1 mg/kg per day; however, once daily oral administration of pemigatinib at the 0.1 mg/kg dose level (approximately 0.2 times the human exposure based on AUC at the clinical dose of 13.5 mg) resulted in reduced mean fetal body weight and an increase in fetal skeletal and visceral malformations, major blood vessel variations, and reduced ossification.
There are no data on the presence of pemigatinib or its metabolites in human milk or their effects on either the breastfed child or on milk production. Because of the potential for serious adverse reactions in breastfed children from PEMAZYRE, advise women not to breastfeed during treatment and for 1 week after the final dose.
Verify pregnancy status of females of reproductive potential prior to initiating PEMAZYRE [see Use in Specific Populations (8.1)].
PEMAZYRE can cause fetal harm when administered to pregnant women [see Use in Specific Populations (8.1)].
Advise females of reproductive potential to use effective contraception during treatment with PEMAZYRE and for 1 week after the final dose.
Advise males with female partners of reproductive potential to use effective contraception during treatment with PEMAZYRE and for 1 week after the final dose.
The safety and effectiveness of PEMAZYRE have not been established in pediatric patients.
Animal Toxicity Data
In 4- or 13-week repeat-dose toxicology studies in rats and non-human primates, animals displayed toxicities in bone and teeth at pemigatinib exposures lower than the human exposure at the clinical dose of 13.5 mg. Physeal and cartilage dysplasia were present in multiple bones in both species, and tooth (incisor) abnormalities (complete loss of ameloblasts with associated secondary changes) occurred in rats. Six weeks after cessation of dosing, these findings did not show complete evidence of recovery, and additional tooth-related findings (mal-aligned, whitened, broken, and trimmed/thinned incisors) developed in the 13-week study.
In FIGHT-202, 32% of patients were 65 years and older, and 8% of patients were 75 years and older. No overall differences in safety or effectiveness were observed between these patients and younger patients.
Reduce the recommended dosage of PEMAZYRE for patients with severe renal impairment (eGFR 15 to 29 mL/min/1.73 m2, estimated by Modification of Diet in Renal Disease [MDRD] equation) [see Dosage and Administration (2.5) and Clinical Pharmacology (12.3)].
No dosage adjustment is recommended for patients with mild or moderate renal impairment (eGFR 30 to 89 mL/min/1.73 m2). No dosage adjustment is recommended for patients with end-stage renal disease (eGFR < 15 mL/min/1.73 m2) who are receiving intermittent hemodialysis. [see Clinical Pharmacology (12.3)].
No dosage adjustment is recommended for patients with mild (total bilirubin > upper limit of normal [ULN] to 1.5 × ULN or AST > ULN) or moderate (total bilirubin >1.5–3 × ULN with any AST) hepatic impairment [see Clinical Pharmacology (12.3)].
Pemigatinib is a kinase inhibitor with the chemical name 3-(2,6-difluoro-3,5-dimethoxyphenyl)-1-ethyl-8-(morpholin-4-ylmethyl)-1,3,4,7-tetrahydro-2H-pyrrolo[3',2':5,6]pyrido[4,3-d]pyrimidin-2-one. Pemigatinib has a molecular formula of C24H27F2N5O4 and molecular mass of 487.5 g/mole. Pemigatinib has the following chemical structure:
Pemigatinib is a white to off-white solid that is not hygroscopic. The solubility of pemigatinib is pH dependent with decreasing solubility observed with increasing pH. PEMAZYRE tablets are uncoated and for oral administration. Tablets are available containing 4.5 mg, 9 mg, or 13.5 mg of pemigatinib active ingredient. The inactive ingredients include magnesium stearate, microcrystalline cellulose, and sodium starch glycolate.
Pemigatinib is a small molecule kinase inhibitor that targets FGFR1, 2 and 3 with IC50 values of less than 2 nM. Pemigatinib also inhibited FGFR4 in vitro at a concentration approximately 100 times higher than those that inhibit FGFR1, 2, and 3. Pemigatinib inhibited FGFR1-3 phosphorylation and signaling and decreased cell viability in cancer cell lines with activating FGFR amplifications and fusions that resulted in constitutive activation of FGFR signaling. Constitutive FGFR signaling can support the proliferation and survival of malignant cells. Pemigatinib exhibited anti-tumor activity in mouse xenograft models of human tumors with FGFR1, FGFR2, or FGFR3 alterations resulting in constitutive FGFR activation including a patient-derived xenograft model of cholangiocarcinoma that expressed an oncogenic FGFR2-Transformer-2 beta homolog (TRA2b) fusion protein.
Pemigatinib increased serum phosphate levels as a consequence of FGFR inhibition. Serum phosphate increased with increasing exposure across the dose range of 1 to 20 mg once daily (0.07 to 1.5 times the recommended dose), with increased risk of hyperphosphatemia with higher pemigatinib exposure.
At a dose 1.5 times the maximum recommended dose, PEMAZYRE does not result in a large mean increase (i.e. >20 ms) of the QTc interval.
The geometric mean (CV%) steady-state pemigatinib AUC0-24h was 2620 nM·h (54%) and Cmax was 236 nM (56%) for 13.5 mg orally once daily. Steady state pemigatinib concentrations increased proportionally over the dose range of 1 to 20 mg (0.07 to 1.5 times the recommended dose). Steady-state was achieved within 4 days and pemigatinib accumulated with a median accumulation ratio of 1.63 (range 0.63 to 3.28) following repeated once daily dosing.
The median time to achieve peak pemigatinib plasma concentration (Tmax) was 1.13 (0.50‑6.00) hours.
Effect of Food
Administration of PEMAZYRE with a high-fat and high-calorie meal (approximately 1000 calories with 150 calories from protein, 250 calories from carbohydrate, and 500‑600 calories from fat) had no clinically significant effect on pemigatinib pharmacokinetics.
The estimated apparent volume of distribution was 235 L (60.8%) following a 13.5 mg oral dose. Protein binding of pemigatinib was 90.6% and was independent of concentration in vitro.
The geometric mean (%CV) elimination half-life (t½) of pemigatinib was 15.4 (51.6%) hours and the geometric mean apparent clearance (CL/F) was 10.6 L/h (54%).
Pemigatinib is predominantly metabolized by CYP3A4 in vitro. The major drug-related moiety in plasma was unchanged pemigatinib.
Following a single oral 11 mg dose of radiolabeled pemigatinib, 82.4% of the dose was recovered in feces (1.4% as unchanged) and 12.6% in urine (1% as unchanged).
No clinically significant differences in the systemic exposure of pemigatinib were observed based on age (21 ‑ 79 years), sex, race/ethnicity (White 68.2%, Asian 16%, Black 6.3%, Hispanic 6%, other 3.5%) or body weight (39.8 ‑ 156 kg).
Patients with Renal Impairment
No clinically significant differences in the systemic exposure of pemigatinib were observed in mild to moderate renal impairment (eGFR 30 to 89 mL/min, MDRD) or end-stage renal disease (eGFR <15 mL/min/1.73 m2) on intermittent hemodialysis. Compared to subjects with normal renal function, the geometric mean pemigatinib AUC0–inf increased by 59% in patients with severe renal impairment (eGFR 15 to 29 mL/min/1.73 m2).
Patients with Hepatic Impairment
No clinically significant differences in the systemic exposure of pemigatinib were observed in mild (total bilirubin > upper limit of normal [ULN] to 1.5 × ULN or AST > ULN) to moderate (total bilirubin >1.5–3 × ULN with any AST) hepatic impairment. Compared to subjects with normal hepatic function, the geometric mean pemigatinib AUC0–inf increased by 136% in subjects with severe hepatic impairment (total bilirubin > 3 × ULN with any AST).
Drug Interaction Studies
Clinical Studies and Model-Based Approaches
CYP3A Inhibitors: Itraconazole (strong CYP3A inhibitor) increased Cmax by 17% and increased AUC by 88% following a single oral PEMAZYRE dose of 4.5 mg [see Drug Interactions (7.1)]. Concomitant use of moderate CYP3A inhibitors is predicted to increase pemigatinib exposure by approximately 50-80% [see Drug Interactions (7.1)].
CYP3A Inducers: Rifampin (strong CYP3A inducer) decreased pemigatinib Cmax by 62% and AUC by 85% following a single oral PEMAZYRE dose of 13.5 mg [see Drug Interactions (7.1)]. Concomitant use of a moderate CYP3A inducer is predicted to decrease pemigatinib exposure by more than 50% [see Drug Interactions (7.1)].
Other Drugs: No clinically significant differences in pemigatinib exposure when co-administered with esomeprazole (proton pump inhibitor) or ranitidine (histamine-2 antagonist). No clinically significant differences in glucose levels were observed when metformin (OCT2/MATE1 substrate) was co-administered with pemigatinib.
In Vitro Studies
CYP Enzymes: Pemigatinib is not an inhibitor of CYP1A2, CYP2B6, CYP2C8, CYP2C9, CYP2C19, CYP2D6, or CYP3A4 or an inducer of CYP1A2, CYP2B6, or CYP3A4.
Transporter Systems: Pemigatinib is a substrate of both P-gp and BCRP. P-gp or BCRP inhibitors are not expected to affect pemigatinib exposure at clinically relevant concentrations. Pemigatinib is an inhibitor of P-gp, OCT2, and MATE1. Pemigatinib may increase serum creatinine by decreasing renal tubular secretion of creatinine; this may occur due to inhibition of renal transporters OCT2 and MATE1 and may not affect glomerular function [see Adverse Reactions (6.1)].
Carcinogenicity studies have not been conducted with pemigatinib.
Pemigatinib was not mutagenic in an in vitro bacterial reverse mutation (Ames) assay and was not clastogenic in either an in vitro chromosome aberration assay or an in vivo micronucleus assay in rats.
Dedicated fertility studies with pemigatinib have not been conducted. Oral administration of pemigatinib did not result in any dose-related findings likely to result in impaired fertility in male and female reproductive organs.
FIGHT-202 (NCT02924376), a multicenter open-label single-arm trial, evaluated the efficacy of PEMAZYRE in 107 patients with locally advanced unresectable or metastatic cholangiocarcinoma whose disease had progressed on or after at least 1 prior therapy and who had an FGFR2 gene fusion or non-fusion rearrangement, as determined by a clinical trial assay performed at a central laboratory. Qualifying in-frame fusions and other rearrangements were predicted to have a breakpoint within intron 17/exon 18 of the FGFR2 gene leaving the FGFR2 kinase domain intact.
Patients received PEMAZYRE in 21-day cycles at a dosage of 13.5 mg orally once daily for 14 consecutive days, followed by 7 days off therapy. PEMAZYRE was administered until disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. The major efficacy outcome measures were overall response rate (ORR) and duration of response (DoR) as determined by an independent review committee (IRC) according to RECIST v1.1.
The median age was 56 years (range: 26 to 77 years), 61% were female, 74% were White, and 95% had a baseline Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status of 0 (42%) or 1 (53%). Ninety-eight percent of patients had intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma. Eighty-six percent of patients had in-frame FGFR2 gene fusions and the most commonly identified FGFR2 fusion was FGFR2-BICC1 (34%). Fourteen percent of patients had other FGFR2 rearrangements that could not be confidently predicted to be in-frame fusions, including rearrangements without an identifiable partner gene. All patients had received at least 1 prior line of systemic therapy, 27% had 2 prior lines of therapy, and 12% had 3 or more prior lines of therapy. Ninety-six percent of patients had received prior platinum-based therapy including 76% with prior gemcitabine/cisplatin.
Efficacy results are summarized in Table 5.
The median time to response was 2.7 months (range 0.7 – 6.9 months).
N = 107
|ORR (95% CI)||36% (27, 45)|
|Median DoR (months) (95% CI)*||9.1 (6.0, 14.5)|
