New Drug - Paliperidone Update
Paliperidone is a drug in development at Johnson and Johnson (under the Janssen division) and it appears to be moving ahead in the development cycle. Paliperidone, which releases drug into the bloodstream steadily over a 24-hour period, is an extended release medication that is similar to Johnson & Johnson's schizophrenia treatment Risperdal (which is not time-release).
On Wednesday Johnson & Johnson said its pharmaceutical research and development division applied for regulatory approval of Paliperidone, an investigative treatment for schizophrenia.
Paliperidone is to be available in extended-release tablets.
Paliperidone ER uses OROS technology, which releases drug into the bloodstream steadily over a 24-hour period. Upon FDA approval, the drug will be marketed in the US by Janssen LP, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson. The trade name for the marketed product has not yet been determined.
The paliperidone ER filing is based on an extensive global clinical development program that involved more than 1,600 patients in 23 countries. Regulatory submissions are expected to follow for paliperidone ER in other countries.
The new drug application with the Food and Drug Administration covers Paliperidone extended-release tablets, a once-daily oral medication.
