Firdapse (amifampridine) (Catalyst Pharmaceuticals): Product Profile

Product Description

Firdapse (amifampridine) 10 mg tablets are a nonspecific, voltage-dependent potassium (K+) channel blocker that induces presynaptic membrane depolarization and delays or prevents repolarization. This action causes slow voltage-dependent calcium (Ca2+) channels to open, allowing for a subsequent Ca2+ influx. As a result, it causes synaptic vesicles containing Acetylcholine (ACh) to exocytose, releasing more ACh into the synaptic cleft, improving neuromuscular transmission and muscle function. Lambert-Eaton myasthenic syndrome (LEMS) in adults may be treated with Firdapse (amifampridine).

Seizures, severe allergic reactions, such as anaphylaxis, are possible side effects of Firdapse. Firdapse has the potential to cause severe allergic reactions. Tingling in the mouth, tongue, face, fingers, toes etc. are the most common Firdapse side effects.

Dosage Forms and Strengths

Firdapse tablets are white to off-white, round, and functionally scored tablets that contain 10 mg amifampridine. Each tablet is embossed with “CATALYST” on the non-scored side and “211” above the score and “10” below the score on the scored side.

Research and Development Activities

In two randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled discontinuation trials, Firdapse’s efficacy for the treatment of LEMS was demonstrated. A total of 64 adults with LEMS (ages 21 to 88) were enrolled in Study 1 (NCT01377922) and Study 2 (NCT02970162). Patients with a verified diagnosis of LEMS based on neurophysiology tests or a positive anti-P/Q type voltage-gated calcium channel antibody test were enrolled in the studies. The improvement in the Quantitative Myasthenia Gravis (QMG) score and the Subject Global Impression (SGI) score from baseline to the end of the discontinuation period were the two co-primary efficacy indicators in both studies.
