FULL PRESCRIBING INFORMATION

WARNING: DIFFERENTIATION SYNDROME

Patients treated with XOSPATA have experienced symptoms of differentiation syndrome, which can be fatal or life-threatening if not treated. Symptoms may include fever, dyspnea, hypoxia, pulmonary infiltrates, pleural or pericardial effusions, rapid weight gain or peripheral edema, hypotension, or renal dysfunction. If differentiation syndrome is suspected, initiate corticosteroid therapy and hemodynamic monitoring until symptom resolution [see Warnings and Precautions (5.1) and Adverse Reactions (6.1)].

1 INDICATIONS AND USAGE

1.1 Relapsed or Refractory Acute Myeloid Leukemia

XOSPATA is indicated for the treatment of adult patients who have relapsed or refractory acute myeloid leukemia (AML) with a FMS-like tyrosine kinase 3 (FLT3) mutation as detected by an FDA-approved test.

2 DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION

2.1 Patient Selection

Select patients for the treatment of AML with XOSPATA based on the presence of FLT3 mutations in the blood or bone marrow [see Clinical Studies (14)]. Information on FDA-approved tests for the detection of a FLT3 mutation in AML is available at http://www.fda.gov/CompanionDiagnostics.

2.2 Recommended Dosage

The recommended starting dose of XOSPATA is 120 mg orally once daily with or without food. Response may be delayed. In the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity, treatment for a minimum of 6 months is recommended to allow time for a clinical response.

Do not break or crush XOSPATA tablets. Administer XOSPATA tablets orally about the same time each day. If a dose of XOSPATA is missed or not taken at the usual time, administer the dose as soon as possible on the same day, and at least 12 hours prior to the next scheduled dose. Return to the normal schedule the following day. Do not administer 2 doses within 12 hours.

2.3 Dose Modification

Assess blood counts and blood chemistries, including creatine phosphokinase, prior to the initiation of XOSPATA, at least once weekly for the first month, once every other week for the second month, and once monthly for the duration of therapy. Perform electrocardiogram (ECG) prior to initiation of treatment with gilteritinib, on days 8 and 15 of cycle 1, and prior to the start of the next two subsequent cycles.

Interrupt dosing or reduce dose for toxicities as per Table 1.

Table 1: Dosage Modifications for XOSPATA-Related Toxicities*
*
Grade 1 is mild, Grade 2 is moderate, Grade 3 is serious, Grade 4 is life-threatening.

4 CONTRAINDICATIONS

XOSPATA is contraindicated in patients with hypersensitivity to gilteritinib or any of the excipients. Anaphylactic reactions have been observed in clinical trials [see Adverse Reactions (6) and Description (11)].

5 WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS

5.1 Differentiation Syndrome

Of 319 patients treated with XOSPATA in the clinical trials, 3% experienced differentiation syndrome. Differentiation syndrome is associated with rapid proliferation and differentiation of myeloid cells and may be life-threatening or fatal if not treated. Symptoms of differentiation syndrome in patients treated with XOSPATA included fever, dyspnea, pleural effusion, pericardial effusion, pulmonary edema, hypotension, rapid weight gain, peripheral edema, rash, and renal dysfunction. Some cases had concomitant acute febrile neutrophilic dermatosis. Differentiation syndrome occurred as early as 2 days and up to 75 days after XOSPATA initiation and has been observed with or without concomitant leukocytosis. Of the 11 patients who experienced differentiation syndrome, 9 (82%) recovered after treatment or after dose interruption of XOSPATA.

If differentiation syndrome is suspected, initiate dexamethasone 10 mg IV every 12 hours (or an equivalent dose of an alternative oral or IV corticosteroid) and hemodynamic monitoring until improvement. Taper corticosteroids after resolution of symptoms and administer corticosteroids for a minimum of 3 days. Symptoms of differentiation syndrome may recur with premature discontinuation of corticosteroid treatment. If severe signs and/or symptoms persist for more than 48 hours after initiation of corticosteroids, interrupt XOSPATA until signs and symptoms are no longer severe [see Dosage and Administration (2.3)].

5.2 Posterior Reversible Encephalopathy Syndrome

Of 319 patients treated with XOSPATA in the clinical trials, 1% experienced posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome (PRES) with symptoms including seizure and altered mental status. Symptoms have resolved after discontinuation of XOSPATA. A diagnosis of PRES requires confirmation by brain imaging, preferably magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Discontinue XOSPATA in patients who develop PRES [see Dosage and Administration (2.3) and Adverse Reactions (6.1)].

5.3 Prolonged QT Interval

XOSPATA has been associated with prolonged cardiac ventricular repolarization (QT interval). Of the 317 patients with a post-baseline QTc measurement on treatment with XOSPATA in the clinical trial, 1% were found to have a QTc interval greater than 500 msec and 7% of patients had an increase from baseline QTc greater than 60 msec. Perform electrocardiogram (ECG) prior to initiation of treatment with gilteritinib, on days 8 and 15 of cycle 1, and prior to the start of the next two subsequent cycles. Interrupt and reduce XOSPATA dosage in patients who have a QTcF >500 msec [see Dosage and Administration (2.3), Adverse Reactions (6.1) and Clinical Pharmacology (12.2)].

Hypokalemia or hypomagnesemia may increase the QT prolongation risk. Correct hypokalemia or hypomagnesemia prior to and during XOSPATA administration.

5.4 Pancreatitis

Of 319 patients treated with XOSPATA in the clinical trials, 4% experienced pancreatitis. Evaluate patients who develop signs and symptoms of pancreatitis. Interrupt and reduce the dose of XOSPATA in patients who develop pancreatitis [see Dosage and Administration (2.3)].

5.5 Embryo-Fetal Toxicity

Based on findings in animals and its mechanism of action, XOSPATA can cause embryo-fetal harm when administered to a pregnant woman. In animal reproduction studies, administration of gilteritinib to pregnant rats during organogenesis caused embryo-fetal lethality, suppressed fetal growth and teratogenicity at maternal exposures (AUC24) approximately 0.4 times the AUC24 in patients receiving the recommended dose. Advise females of reproductive potential to use effective contraception during treatment with XOSPATA and for at least 6 months after the last dose of XOSPATA. Advise males with female partners of reproductive potential to use effective contraception during treatment with XOSPATA and for at least 4 months after the last dose of XOSPATA. Pregnant women, patients becoming pregnant while receiving XOSPATA or male patients with pregnant female partners should be apprised of the potential risk to the fetus [see Use in Specific Populations (8.1, 8.3) and Clinical Pharmacology (12.1)].

6 ADVERSE REACTIONS

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

Differentiation syndrome [see Boxed Warning and Warnings and Precautions (5.1)]
Posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome [see Warnings and Precautions ( 5.2 )]
Prolonged QT interval [see Warnings and Precautions ( 5.3 )]

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 to rates in the clinical trials of another drug and may not reflect the rates observed in practice.

The safety profile of XOSPATA is based on 319 patients with relapsed or refractory AML treated with gilteritinib 120 mg daily in three clinical trials. The median duration of exposure to XOSPATA was 3.6 months (range 0.1 to 43.4 months).

Fatal adverse reactions occurred in 2% of patients receiving XOSPATA. These included cardiac arrest (1%) and one case each of differentiation syndrome and pancreatitis. The most frequent (≥5%) nonhematological serious adverse reactions reported in patients were fever (13%), dyspnea (9%), renal impairment (8%), transaminase increased (6%) and noninfectious diarrhea (5%).

Of the 319 patients, 91 (29%) required a dose interruption due to an adverse reaction; the most common adverse reactions leading to dose interruption were aspartate aminotransferase increased (6%), alanine aminotransferase increased (6%) and fever (4%). Twenty patients (6%) required a dose reduction due to an adverse reaction. Twenty-two (7%) discontinued XOSPATA treatment permanently due to an adverse reaction. The most common (>1%) adverse reactions leading to discontinuation were aspartate aminotransferase increased (2%) and alanine aminotransferase increased (2%).

Overall, for the 319 patients, the most frequent (≥10%) all-grade nonhematological adverse reactions reported in patients were transaminase increased (51%), myalgia/arthralgia (50%), fatigue/malaise (44%), fever (41%), mucositis (41%), edema (40%), rash (36%), noninfectious diarrhea (35%), dyspnea (35%), nausea (30%), cough (28%), constipation (28%), eye disorders (25%), headache (24%), dizziness (22%), hypotension (22%), vomiting (21%), renal impairment (21%), abdominal pain (18%), neuropathy (18%), insomnia (15%) and dysgeusia (11%). The most frequent (≥5%) grade ≥3 nonhematological adverse reactions reported in patients were transaminase increased (21%), dyspnea (12%), hypotension (7%), mucositis (7%), myalgia/arthralgia (7%), and fatigue/malaise (6%). Shifts to grades 3-4 nonhematologic laboratory abnormalities included phosphate decreased 42/309 (14%), alanine aminotransferase increased 41/317 (13%), sodium decreased 37/314 (12%), aspartate aminotransferase increased 33/317 (10%), calcium decreased 19/312 (6%), creatine kinase increased 20/317 (6%), triglycerides increased 18/310 (6%), creatinine increased 10/316 (3%), and alkaline phosphatase increased 5/317 (2%).

Adverse reactions reported in the first 30 days of therapy on the ADMIRAL Study [see Clinical Studies (14)] are shown in Tables 2 and 3, according to whether patients were preselected for high intensity or low intensity chemotherapy.

7 DRUG INTERACTIONS

7.1 Effect of Other Drugs on XOSPATA

Combined P-gp and Strong CYP3A Inducers

Concomitant use of XOSPATA with a combined P-gp and strong CYP3A inducer decreases gilteritinib exposure which may decrease XOSPATA efficacy [see Clinical Pharmacology (12.3)]. Avoid concomitant use of XOSPATA with combined P-gp and strong CYP3A inducers.

Strong CYP3A Inhibitors

Concomitant use of XOSPATA with a strong CYP3A inhibitor increases gilteritinib exposure [see Clinical Pharmacology (12.3)]. Consider alternative therapies that are not strong CYP3A inhibitors. If the concomitant use of these inhibitors is considered essential for the care of the patient, monitor patient more frequently for XOSPATA adverse reactions. Interrupt and reduce XOSPATA dosage in patients with serious or life-threatening toxicity [see Dosage and Administration (2.3)].

7.2 Effect of XOSPATA on Other Drugs

Drugs that Target 5HT2B Receptor or Sigma Nonspecific Receptor

Concomitant use of gilteritinib may reduce the effects of drugs that target the 5HT2B receptor or the sigma nonspecific receptor (e.g., escitalopram, fluoxetine, sertraline). Avoid concomitant use of these drugs with XOSPATA unless their use is considered essential for the care of the patient [see Clinical Pharmacology (12.3)].

8 USE IN SPECIFIC POPULATIONS

8.1 Pregnancy

Risk Summary

Based on findings from animal studies (see Data) and its mechanism of action, XOSPATA can cause fetal harm when administered to a pregnant woman [see Clinical Pharmacology (12.1)].

There are no available data on XOSPATA use in pregnant women to inform a drug-associated risk of adverse developmental outcomes. In animal reproduction studies, administration of gilteritinib to pregnant rats during organogenesis caused adverse developmental outcomes including embryo-fetal lethality, suppressed fetal growth, and teratogenicity at maternal exposures (AUC24) approximately 0.4 times the AUC24 in patients receiving the recommended dose (see Data). Advise pregnant women of the potential risk to a fetus.

Adverse outcomes in pregnancy occur regardless of the health of the mother or the use of medications. 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%-4% and 15%-20%, respectively.

Data

Animal Data

In an embryo-fetal development study in rats, pregnant animals received oral doses of gilteritinib of 0, 0.3, 3, 10, and 30 mg/kg/day during the period of organogenesis. Maternal findings at 30 mg/kg/day (resulting in exposures approximately 0.4 times the AUC24 in patients receiving the recommended dose) included decreased body weight and food consumption. Administration of gilteritinib at the dose of 30 mg/kg/day also resulted in embryo-fetal death (postimplantation loss), decreased fetal body and placental weight, and decreased numbers of ossified sternebrae and sacral and caudal vertebrae, and increased incidence of fetal gross external (anasarca, local edema, exencephaly, cleft lip, cleft palate, short tail, and umbilical hernia), visceral (microphthalmia; atrial and/or ventricular defects; and malformed/absent kidney, and malpositioned adrenal, and ovary), and skeletal (sternoschisis, absent rib, fused rib, fused cervical arch, misaligned cervical vertebra, and absent thoracic vertebra) abnormalities.

Single oral administration of [14C] gilteritinib to pregnant rats resulted in transfer of radioactivity to the fetus similar to that observed in maternal plasma on day 14 of gestation. In addition, distribution profiles of radioactivity in most maternal tissues and the fetus on day 18 of gestation were similar to that on day 14 of gestation.

8.2 Lactation

Risk Summary

There are no data on the presence of gilteritinib and/or its metabolites in human milk, the effects on the breastfed child, or the effects on milk production. Following administration of radiolabeled gilteritinib to lactating rats, milk concentrations of radioactivity were higher than radioactivity in maternal plasma at 4 and 24 hours post-dose. In animal studies, gilteritinib and/or its metabolite(s) were distributed to the tissues in infant rats via the milk. Because of the potential for serious adverse reactions in a breastfed child, advise a lactating woman not to breastfeed during treatment with XOSPATA and for at least 2 months after the last dose.

8.3 Females and Males of Reproductive Potential

Pregnancy testing

Pregnancy testing is recommended for females of reproductive potential within seven days prior to initiating XOSPATA treatment [see Use in Specific Populations (8.1)].

Contraception

Females

Advise females of reproductive potential to use effective contraception during treatment and for at least 6 months after the last dose of XOSPATA.

Males

Advise males of reproductive potential to use effective contraception during treatment and for at least 4 months after the last dose of XOSPATA.

8.4 Pediatric Use

Safety and effectiveness in pediatric patients have not been established.

8.5 Geriatric Use

Of the 319 patients in clinical studies of XOSPATA, 43% were age 65 years or older, and 13% were 75 years or older. No overall differences in effectiveness or safety were observed between patients age 65 years or older and younger patients.

Gilteritinib fumarate is a light yellow to yellow powder or crystals that is sparingly soluble in water and very slightly soluble in anhydrous ethanol.

XOSPATA (gilteritinib) is provided as a tablet for oral administration. Each tablet contains 40 mg of gilteritinib active ingredient as free base (corresponding to 44.2 mg gilteritinib fumarate). The inactive ingredients are ferric oxide, hydroxypropyl cellulose, hypromellose, low-substituted hydroxypropyl cellulose, mannitol, magnesium stearate, talc, polyethylene glycol and titanium dioxide.

12 CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY

12.1 Mechanism of Action

Gilteritinib is a small molecule that inhibits multiple receptor tyrosine kinases, including FMS-like tyrosine kinase 3 (FLT3). Gilteritinib demonstrated the ability to inhibit FLT3 receptor signaling and proliferation in cells exogenously expressing FLT3 including FLT3-ITD, tyrosine kinase domain mutations (TKD) FLT3-D835Y and FLT3-ITD-D835Y, and it induced apoptosis in leukemic cells expressing FLT3-ITD.

12.2 Pharmacodynamics

In patients with relapsed or refractory AML administered gilteritinib 120 mg, substantial (>90%) inhibition of FLT3 phosphorylation was rapid (within 24 hours after first dose) and sustained, as characterized by an ex vivo plasma inhibitory activity (PIA) assay.

Cardiac Electrophysiology

The effect of XOSPATA 120 mg once a day on the QTc interval has been evaluated in patients, which showed an absence of large mean increases (i.e., 20 msec) in the QTc interval.

Of 317 patients with a post-baseline QTc measurement on treatment with gilteritinib at 120 mg in clinical trials, 4 patients (1.3%) experienced a QTcF >500 msec. Additionally, across all doses 2.3% of patients with relapse/refractory AML had a maximum post-baseline QTcF interval >500 msec [see Warnings and Precautions (5.3)].

12.3 Pharmacokinetics

The following pharmacokinetic parameters were observed following administration of gilteritinib 120 mg once daily, unless otherwise specified.

Gilteritinib exposure (Cmax and AUC24) increases proportionally with once daily doses ranging from 20 mg to 450 mg (0.17 to 3.75 times the recommended dosage) in patients with relapsed or refractory AML. Gilteritinib mean (±SD) steady-state Cmax is 374 ng/mL (±190) and AUC24 is 6943 ng•hr/mL (±3221). Steady-state plasma levels are reached within 15 days of dosing with an approximate 10-fold accumulation.

Absorption

The time to maximum gilteritinib concentration (tmax) observed is approximately between 4 and 6 hours postdose in the fasted state.

Effect of Food

In healthy adults administered a single gilteritinib 40 mg dose (0.3 times the recommended dosage), gilteritinib Cmax decreased by 26% and AUC decreased by less than 10% when co-administered with a high-fat meal (approximately 800 to 1,000 total calories with 500 to 600 fat calories, 250 carbohydrate calories, 150 protein calories) compared to a fasted state. Median tmax was delayed 2 hours when gilteritinib was administered with a high-fat meal.

Distribution

The population mean (%CV) estimates of apparent central and peripheral volume of distribution were 1092 L (9.22%) and 1100 L (4.99%), respectively, which may indicate extensive tissue distribution. In vivo, gilteritinib is approximately 94% bound to human plasma proteins. In vitro, gilteritinib is primarily bound to human serum albumin.

Elimination

The estimated half-life of gilteritinib is 113 hours, and the estimated apparent clearance is 14.85 L/h.

Metabolism

Gilteritinib is primarily metabolized via CYP3A4 in vitro. At steady state, the primary metabolites in humans include M17 (formed via N-dealkylation and oxidation), M16 and M10 (both formed via N‑dealkylation). None of these 3 metabolites exceeded 10% of overall parent exposure.

Excretion

After a single radiolabeled dose, gilteritinib is excreted in feces with 64.5% of the total administered dose recovered in feces. Of the total radiolabeled dose of gilteritinib, 16.4% was recovered in urine as unchanged drug and metabolites.

Specific Populations

Age (20-87 years), sex, race, mild (Child-Pugh Class A) or moderate (Child-Pugh Class B) hepatic impairment and mild (creatinine clearance (CLCr) 50-80 mL/min) or moderate (CLCr 30-50 mL/min) renal impairment do not have clinically meaningful effects on the pharmacokinetics of gilteritinib.

The effect of severe hepatic (Child-Pugh Class C) or severe renal impairment (CLCr ≤ 29 mL/min) on gilteritinib pharmacokinetics is unknown.

Drug Interaction Studies

Clinical Studies

Combined P-gp and Strong CYP3A Inducers:

Gilteritinib Cmax decreased approximately 30% and AUC decreased approximately 70% when co-administered with rifampin (a combined P-gp and strong CYP3A inducer).

Strong CYP3A Inhibitors:

Gilteritinib Cmax increased approximately 20% and AUC increased approximately 120% when co-administered with itraconazole (a strong CYP3A inhibitor).

Moderate CYP3A Inhibitors:

Gilteritinib Cmax increased approximately 16% and AUC increased approximately 40% when co-administered with fluconazole (a moderate CYP3A inhibitor).

CYP3A Substrates:

Midazolam (a CYP3A substrate) Cmax and AUC increased approximately 10% when co-administered with gilteritinib.

MATE1 Substrates:

Cephalexin (a MATE1 substrate) Cmax and AUC decreased by less than 10% when co-administered with gilteritinib.

In Vitro Studies

Gilteritinib inhibits human 5HT2B receptor or sigma nonspecific receptors, which may reduce the effects of drugs that target these receptors such as escitalopram, fluoxetine and sertraline.

Gilteritinib is a substrate of P-gp transporter and has the potential to inhibit breast cancer resistance protein (BCRP) and organic cation transporter 1 (OCT1) transporters.

13 NONCLINICAL TOXICOLOGY

13.1 Carcinogenesis, Mutagenesis, Impairment of Fertility

Carcinogenicity studies have not been performed with gilteritinib.

Gilteritinib was not mutagenic in a bacterial mutagenesis (Ames) assay and was not clastogenic in a chromosome aberration test assay in Chinese hamster lung cells. Gilteritinib was positive for the induction of micronuclei in mouse bone marrow cells from 65 mg/kg (195 mg/m2) the mid dose tested (approximately 2.6 times the recommended human dose of 120 mg).

The effect of XOSPATA on human fertility is unknown. Administration of 10 mg/kg/day gilteritinib in the 4-week study in dogs (12 days of dosing) resulted in degeneration and necrosis of germ cells and spermatid giant cell formation in the testis as well as single cell necrosis of the epididymal duct epithelia of the epididymal head.

13.2 Animal Toxicology and/or Pharmacology

In the 13-week oral repeated dose toxicity studies in rats and dogs, target organs of toxicity included the eye and kidney.

14 CLINICAL STUDIES

14.1 Relapsed or Refractory Acute Myeloid Leukemia

The efficacy of XOSPATA was assessed in the ADMIRAL Trial (NCT02421939), which included adult patients with relapsed or refractory AML having a FLT3 ITD, D835, or I836 mutation by the LeukoStrat® CDx FLT3 Mutation Assay. XOSPATA was given orally at a starting dose of 120 mg daily until unacceptable toxicity or lack of clinical benefit.

First Interim Analysis

The efficacy of XOSPATA was established on the basis of the rate of complete remission (CR)/CR with partial hematological recovery (CRh), the duration of CR/CRh (DOR), and the rate of conversion from transfusion dependence to transfusion independence at the first interim analysis in the ADMIRAL trial (n=138). The median follow-up was 4.6 months (95% CI: 2.8, 15.8). Fourteen patients were still in remission at the time of the first interim DOR analysis. The efficacy results are shown in Table 5. For patients who achieved a CR/CRh, the median time to first response was 3.6 months (range, 0.9 to 9.6 months). The CR/CRh rate was 29 of 126 in patients with FLT3-ITD or FLT3-ITD/TKD and 0 of 12 in patients with FLT3-TKD only.

Among the 106 patients who were dependent on red blood cell (RBC) and/or platelet transfusions at baseline, 33 (31.1%) became independent of RBC and platelet transfusions during any 56-day post-baseline period. For the 32 patients who were independent of both RBC and platelet transfusions at baseline, 17 (53.1%) remained transfusion-independent during any 56-day post-baseline period.

The final analysis included an assessment of OS, measured from the date of randomization until death by any cause. At the time of analysis, median follow-up was 17.8 months (range, 14.9 to 19.1). Patients randomized to the XOSPATA arm had significantly longer survival compared to the chemotherapy arm (HR 0.64; 95% CI: 0.49 – 0.83; 1-sided p-value: 0.0004). Figure 1 and Table 7 show the results of the OS analysis.

Exploratory subgroup analyses demonstrated that the hazard ratio for survival was 0.66 (95% CI: 0.47 – 0.93) for patients in the high intensity chemotherapy stratum and 0.56 (95% CI: 0.38 – 0.84) for patients in the low intensity chemotherapy stratum. The CR rates are shown in Table 7. For patients on XOSPATA and chemotherapy arms, the CR rates were 15.4% (95% CI: 10% – 22.3%) and 16% (95% CI: 8.6% – 26.3%), respectively, for patients in the high intensity chemotherapy stratum, and 12.2% (95% CI: 6.5% – 20.4%) and 2% (95% CI 0.1% – 10.9%), respectively, for patients in the low intensity chemotherapy stratum.

(gilteritinib)
tablets

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

XOSPATA may cause serious side effects, including:

Differentiation Syndrome. Differentiation syndrome is a condition that affects your blood cells and may be life-threatening or lead to death if not treated. Differentiation syndrome can happen as early as 2 days after starting XOSPATA and during the first 3 months of treatment. Call your healthcare provider or go to the nearest hospital emergency room right away if you develop any of the following symptoms of differentiation syndrome while taking XOSPATA:

o
fever
o
cough
o
trouble breathing
o
rash
o
dizziness or lightheadedness
o
rapid weight gain
o
swelling of your arms or legs
o
decreased urination

If you develop any of these symptoms of differentiation syndrome, your healthcare provider may treat you with a corticosteroid medicine and may monitor you in the hospital.

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

What is XOSPATA?
XOSPATA is a prescription medicine used to treat adults with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) who have a FMS-like tyrosine kinase 3 (FLT3) mutation:

when the disease has come back, or
has not improved after previous treatment(s).

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

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

Who should not take XOSPATA?

Do not take XOSPATA if you are allergic to gilteritinib or any of the ingredients in XOSPATA. See the end of this Medication Guide for a complete list of ingredients in XOSPATA.

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

have any heart problems, including a condition called long QT syndrome.
have problems with abnormal electrolytes such as sodium, potassium, or magnesium levels.
are pregnant or plan to become pregnant. XOSPATA can cause harm to your unborn baby. You should avoid becoming pregnant during treatment with XOSPATA. Tell your healthcare provider right away if you become pregnant or think you may be pregnant during treatment with XOSPATA.
o
If you are able to become pregnant, your healthcare provider may perform a pregnancy test 7 days before you start treatment with XOSPATA.
o
Females who are able to become pregnant should use effective birth control (contraception) during treatment with XOSPATA and for at least 6 months after the last dose of XOSPATA.
o
Males who have female partners that are able to become pregnant should use effective birth control (contraception) during treatment with XOSPATA and for at least 4 months after the last dose of XOSPATA.
are breastfeeding or plan to breastfeed. It is not known if XOSPATA passes into your breast milk. Do not breastfeed during treatment with XOSPATA and for at least 2 months after the last dose of XOSPATA.

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 XOSPATA?

Take XOSPATA exactly as your healthcare provider tells you to. Do not change your dose or stop taking XOSPATA without talking to your healthcare provider.
Take XOSPATA 1 time a day at about the same time each day.
Swallow XOSPATA tablets whole. Do not break, crush, or chew the tablet.
XOSPATA can be taken with or without food.
If you miss a dose of XOSPATA, or did not take it at the usual time, take your dose as soon as possible and at least 12 hours before your next dose. Return to your normal schedule the following day. Do not take 2 doses of XOSPATA within 12 hours.

What are the possible side effects of XOSPATA?
XOSPATA may cause serious side effects, including:

See “What is the most important information I should know about XOSPATA?”
Posterior Reversible Encephalopathy Syndrome (PRES). If you take XOSPATA, you may be at risk of developing a condition involving the brain called PRES. Tell your healthcare provider right away if you have a seizure or quickly worsening symptoms such as headache, decreased alertness, confusion, reduced eyesight, blurred vision, or other visual problems. Your healthcare provider will do a test to check for PRES. Your healthcare provider will stop XOSPATA if you develop PRES.
Changes in the electrical activity of your heart called QTc prolongation. QTc prolongation can cause irregular heartbeats that can be life-threatening. Your healthcare provider will check the electrical activity of your heart with a test called an electrocardiogram (ECG) before you start taking XOSPATA and during your treatment with XOSPATA. Tell your healthcare provider right away if you feel dizzy, lightheaded, or faint. The risk of QT prolongation is higher in people with low blood magnesium or low blood potassium levels. Your healthcare provider will do blood tests to check your potassium and magnesium levels before and during your treatment with XOSPATA.
