1 Indications And Usage


ORGOVYX is indicated for the treatment of adult patients with advanced prostate cancer.


ORGOVYX is a gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) receptor antagonist indicated for the treatment of adult patients with advanced prostate cancer ( 1).

2 Dosage And Administration


  • Recommended Dosage: A loading dose of 360 mg on the first day of treatment followed by 120 mg taken orally once daily, at approximately the same time each day ( 2.1).
  • ORGOVYX can be taken with or without food ( 2.1, 12.3). Instruct patients to swallow tablets whole and not to crush or chew tablets ( 2.1).


Initiate treatment of ORGOVYX with a loading dose of 360 mg on the first day and continue treatment with a 120 mg dose taken orally once daily at approximately the same time each day.

ORGOVYX can be taken with or without food [see Clinical Pharmacology (12.3)] . Instruct patients to swallow tablets whole and not to crush or chew tablets.

Advise patients to take a missed dose of ORGOVYX as soon as they remember. If the dose was missed by more than 12 hours, patients should not take the missed dose and resume with the next scheduled dose.

If treatment with ORGOVYX is interrupted for greater than 7 days, restart ORGOVYX with a loading dose of 360 mg on the first day, and continue with a dose of 120 mg once daily.

In patients treated with GnRH receptor agonists and antagonists for prostate cancer, treatment is usually continued upon development of nonmetastatic or metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer.

2.2 Dose Modification for Use with P-gp Inhibitors


Avoid co-administration of ORGOVYX with oral P-gp inhibitors. If co-administration is unavoidable, take ORGOVYX first and separate dosing by at least 6 hours [see Drug Interactions (7.1) and Clinical Pharmacology (12.3)] . Treatment with ORGOVYX may be interrupted for up to two weeks if a short course of treatment with a P-gp inhibitor is required.

2.3 Dose Modification for Use with Combined P-gp and Strong CYP3A Inducers


Avoid co-administration of ORGOVYX with combined P-gp and strong CYP3A inducers. If co-administration is unavoidable, increase the ORGOVYX dose to 240 mg once daily. After discontinuation of the combined P-gp and strong CYP3A inducer, resume the recommended ORGOVYX dose of 120 mg once daily [see Drug Interactions (7.1) and Clinical Pharmacology (12.3)] .

3 Dosage Forms And Strengths

  • None ( 4).

5 Warnings And Precautions


  • QT/QTc Interval Prolongation: Androgen deprivation therapy may prolong the QT interval ( 5.1).
  • Embryo-Fetal Toxicity: ORGOVYX can cause fetal harm. Advise males with female partners of reproductive potential to use effective contraception ( 5.2, 8.1, 8.3).

5.1 QT/QTc Interval Prolongation


Androgen deprivation therapy, such as ORGOVYX may prolong the QT/QTc interval. Providers should consider whether the benefits of androgen deprivation therapy outweigh the potential risks in patients with congenital long QT syndrome, congestive heart failure, or frequent electrolyte abnormalities and in patients taking drugs known to prolong the QT interval. Electrolyte abnormalities should be corrected. Consider periodic monitoring of electrocardiograms and electrolytes [see Clinical Pharmacology (12.2)].

5.2 Embryo-Fetal Toxicity


The safety and efficacy of ORGOVYX have not been established in females. Based on findings in animals and mechanism of action, ORGOVYX can cause fetal harm and loss of pregnancy when administered to a pregnant female. In an animal reproduction study, oral administration of relugolix to pregnant rabbits during the period of organogenesis caused embryo-fetal lethality at maternal exposures that were 0.3 times the human exposure at the recommended dose of 120 mg daily based on area under the curve (AUC). Advise males with female partners of reproductive potential to use effective contraception during treatment and for 2 weeks after the last dose of ORGOVYX [see Use in Specific Populations (8.1, 8.3) and Clinical Pharmacology (12.1)] .

5.3 Laboratory Testing


Therapy with ORGOVYX results in suppression of the pituitary gonadal system. Results of diagnostic tests of the pituitary gonadotropic and gonadal functions conducted during and after ORGOVYX may be affected. The therapeutic effect of ORGOVYX should be monitored by measuring serum concentrations of prostate specific antigen (PSA) periodically. If PSA increases, serum concentrations of testosterone should be measured.

6 Adverse Reactions


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


The most common adverse reactions (≥ 10%) and laboratory abnormalities (≥ 15%) were hot flush, glucose increased, triglycerides increased, musculoskeletal pain, hemoglobin decreased, alanine aminotransferase (ALT) increased, fatigue, aspartate aminotransferase (AST) increased, constipation, and diarrhea ( 6.1).

6.1Clinical 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 of ORGOVYX was evaluated in HERO, a randomized (2:1), open-label, clinical study in patients with advanced prostate cancer [see Clinical Studies (14)] . Patients received orally administered ORGOVYX as a loading dose of 360 mg on the first day followed by 120 mg taken orally once daily (n = 622) or received leuprolide acetate administered by depot injection at doses of 22.5 mg (n = 264) or 11.25 mg (n = 44) per local guidelines every 12 weeks (n = 308). Leuprolide acetate 11.25 mg is a dosage regimen that is not recommended for this indication in the US. Among patients who received ORGOVYX, 91% were exposed for at least 48 weeks. Ninety-nine (16%) patients received concomitant radiotherapy and 17 (3%) patients received concomitant enzalutamide with ORGOVYX.

Serious adverse reactions occurred in 12% of patients receiving ORGOVYX. Serious adverse reactions in ≥ 0.5% of patients included myocardial infarction (0.8%), acute kidney injury (0.6%), arrhythmia (0.6%), hemorrhage (0.6%), and urinary tract infection (0.5%). Fatal adverse reactions occurred in 0.8% of patients receiving ORGOVYX including metastatic lung cancer (0.3%), myocardial infarction (0.3%), and acute kidney injury (0.2%). Fatal and non-fatal myocardial infarction and stroke were reported in 2.7% of patients receiving ORGOVYX.

Permanent discontinuation of ORGOVYX due to an adverse reaction occurred in 3.5% of patients. Adverse reactions which resulted in permanent discontinuation of ORGOVYX in ≥ 0.3 % of patients included atrioventricular block (0.3%), cardiac failure (0.3%), hemorrhage (0.3%), increased transaminases (0.3%), abdominal pain (0.3%), and pneumonia (0.3%).

Dosage interruptions of ORGOVYX due to an adverse reaction occurred in 2.7% of patients. Adverse reactions which required dosage interruption in ≥ 0.3% of patients included fracture (0.3%).

The most common adverse reactions ( ≥ 10%) and laboratory abnormalities (≥ 15%), were hot flush (54%), glucose increased (44%), triglycerides increased (35%), musculoskeletal pain (30%), hemoglobin decreased (28%), alanine aminotransferase increased (ALT) (27%), fatigue (26%), aspartate aminotransferase increased (AST) (18%), constipation (12%), and diarrhea (12%).

7 Drug Interactions



P-gp Inhibitors: Avoid co-administration. If unavoidable, take ORGOVYX first, separate dosing by at least 6 hours, and monitor patients more frequently for adverse reactions ( 2.2, 7.1).

Combined P-gp and Strong CYP3A Inducers: Avoid co-administration. If unavoidable, increase the ORGOVYX dose to 240 mg once daily ( 2.3, 7.1).

7.1 Effect of Other Drugs on ORGOVYX


P-gp Inhibitors

Co-administration of ORGOVYX with a P-gp inhibitor increases the AUC and the maximum concentration (C max) of relugolix [see Clinical Pharmacology (12.3)], which may increase the risk of adverse reactions associated with ORGOVYX. Avoid co-administration of ORGOVYX with oral P-gp inhibitors.

If co-administration is unavoidable, take ORGOVYX first, separate dosing by at least 6 hours, and monitor patients more frequently for adverse reactions [see Dosage and Administration (2.2)] .

Treatment with ORGOVYX may be interrupted for up to 2 weeks for a short course of treatment with certain P-gp inhibitors.

If treatment with ORGOVYX is interrupted for more than 7 days, resume administration of ORGOVYX with a 360 mg loading dose on the first day, followed by 120 mg once daily.


Combined P-gp and Strong CYP3A Inducers

Co-administration of ORGOVYX with a combined P-gp and a strong CYP3A inducer decreases the AUC and C max of relugolix [see Clinical Pharmacology (12.3)], which may reduce the effects of ORGOVYX. Avoid co-administration of ORGOVYX with combined P-gp and strong CYP3A inducers.

If co-administration is unavoidable, increase the ORGOVYX dose [see Dosage and Administration (2.3)] . After discontinuation of the combined P-gp and strong CYP3A inducer, resume the recommended dose of ORGOVYX once daily.

8 Use In Specific Populations


8.1 Pregnancy


Risk Summary

The safety and efficacy of ORGOVYX have not been established in females.

Based on findings in animals and mechanism of action, ORGOVYX can cause fetal harm and loss of pregnancy when administered to a pregnant female [see Clinical Pharmacology (12.1)] . There are no human data on the use of ORGOVYX in pregnant females to inform the drug-associated risk. In an animal reproduction study, oral administration of relugolix to pregnant rabbits during organogenesis caused embryo-fetal lethality at maternal exposures that were 0.3 times the human exposure at the recommended dose of 120 mg daily based on AUC ( see Data ). Advise patients of the potential risk to the fetus.


Data

8.2 Lactation



Risk Summary

The safety and efficacy of ORGOVYX at the recommended dose of 120 mg daily have not been established in females. There are no data on the presence of relugolix in human milk, the effects on the breastfed child, or the effects on milk production. Relugolix and/or its metabolites were present in milk of lactating rats (see Data) .

8.4 Pediatric Use


The safety and efficacy of ORGOVYX in pediatric patients have not been established.

8.5 Geriatric Use


Of the 622 patients who received ORGOVYX in the HERO study, 81% were 65 years of age or older, while 35% were 75 years of age or older. No overall differences in safety or effectiveness were observed between these subjects and younger subjects. There was no clinically relevant impact of age on the pharmacokinetics of ORGOVYX or testosterone response based on population pharmacokinetic and pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic analyses in men 45 to 91 years of age.

11 Description


Relugolix is a nonpeptide small molecule, GnRH receptor antagonist. The chemical name is N-(4-{1-[(2,6-difluorophenyl)methyl]-5-[(dimethylamino)methyl]-3-(6-methoxypyridazin-3-yl)-2,4-dioxo-1,2,3,4-tetrahydrothieno[2,3-d]pyrimidin-6-yl}phenyl)-N'-methoxyurea.

The molecular weight is 623.63 daltons and the molecular formula is C 29H 27F 2N 7O 5S. The structural formula is:



Relugolix is a white to off-white to slightly yellow solid with a solubility of 0.04 mg per mL in water at 25°C.

ORGOVYX is provided as film-coated tablets for oral administration. Each tablet contains 120 mg of relugolix. The inactive ingredients are mannitol, sodium starch glycolate, hydroxypropyl cellulose, magnesium stearate, hypromellose, titanium dioxide, ferric oxide red, and carnauba wax.

12 Clinical Pharmacology


12.1 Mechanism of Action


Relugolix is a nonpeptide GnRH receptor antagonist that competitively binds to pituitary GnRH receptors, thereby, reducing the release of luteinizing hormone (LH) and follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), and consequently testosterone.

12.2 Pharmacodynamics



Pituitary and Gonadal Hormones

Relugolix reduced LH, FSH (Figure 1), and testosterone concentrations after oral administration of the recommended loading dose of 360 mg and a 120 mg dose once daily.

Out of 622 patients, 56% had testosterone concentrations at castrate levels (< 50 ng/dL) by the first sampling timepoint at Day 4, and 97% maintained castrate levels of testosterone through 48 weeks. In a substudy of 137 patients who did not receive subsequent androgen deprivation therapy for at least 90 days after discontinuation of relugolix, the cumulative incidence rate of achieving testosterone concentrations above the lower limit of the normal range (> 280 ng/dL) or baseline at 90 days was 55% [see Clinical Studies (14)] .

Figure 1: Mean (± 95% CI) Follicle-Stimulating Hormone and Luteinizing Hormone Concentrations over Time in HERO


Cardiac Electrophysiology

In a randomized, double-blind, placebo- and positive-controlled (open-label moxifloxacin), parallel-group thorough QT/QTc study, no increase in mean QTc interval > 10 ms was identified after administration of single 60 or 360 mg doses of relugolix (0.2 or 1 times the recommended loading dose, respectively).

12.3 Pharmacokinetics


After administration of single doses ranging from 60 mg to 360 mg (0.17 to 1 times the recommended loading dose), the AUC from time zero extrapolated to infinity (AUC 0-inf) and the maximum observed plasma concentration (C max) of relugolix increase approximately proportionally with dose. After administration of multiple 20 mg to 180 mg doses of relugolix once daily (0.17 to 1.5 times the recommended once daily dose), the AUC tau of relugolix increases approximately proportionally with dose and the C max increases greater than proportionally to dose. After administration of a single 360 mg loading dose in patients, the mean (± standard deviation [± SD]) of AUC 0-24 and C max of relugolix were 985 (± 742) ng.hr/mL and 215 (± 184) ng/mL, respectively. After administration of a 120 mg dose once daily in patients, the mean (± SD) of AUC 0-24 and C max of relugolix at steady-state were 407 (± 168) ng.hr/mL and 70 (± 65) ng/mL, respectively. The accumulation of relugolix upon once daily administration is approximately 2-fold.


Absorption

Relugolix is a substrate for intestinal P-gp. The mean (CV%) absolute bioavailability of relugolix is approximately 12% (62%). The median (range) T max of relugolix is 2.25 hours (0.5 to 5.0 hours).


Specific Populations

No clinically meaningful differences in the pharmacokinetics of relugolix were observed based on age (45 to 91 years), race/ethnicity (Asian [19%], White [71%], Black/African American [6%]), body weight (41 to 193 kg), mild to severe renal impairment (creatinine clearance [CLcr] 15 to 89 mL/min, as estimated by the Cockcroft-Gault equation), or mild to moderate hepatic impairment (Child-Pugh A or B). The effect of end-stage renal disease with or without hemodialysis or severe hepatic impairment (Child-Pugh C) on the pharmacokinetics of relugolix has not been evaluated.


Drug Interactions Studies

13 Nonclinical Toxicology


13.1 Carcinogenesis, Mutagenesis, Impairment of Fertility


Two-year carcinogenicity studies were conducted in mice at oral relugolix doses up to 100 mg/kg/day and in rats at doses up to 600 mg/kg/day. Relugolix was not carcinogenic in mice or rats at exposures up to approximately 75 or 224 times, respectively, the human exposure at the recommended dose of 120 mg daily based on AUC.

Relugolix was not mutagenic in the in vitro bacterial reverse mutation (Ames) assay or clastogenic in the in vitro chromosomal aberration assay in Chinese hamster lung cells or the in vivo rat bone marrow micronucleus assay.

In human GnRH-receptor knock-in male mice, oral administration of relugolix decreased prostate and seminal vesicle weights at doses ≥ 3 mg/kg twice daily for 28 days. The effects of relugolix were reversible, except for testis weight, which did not fully recover within 28 days after drug withdrawal. In a 39-week repeat-dose toxicity study in monkeys, there were no significant effects on male reproductive organs at oral relugolix doses up to 50 mg/kg/day (approximately 53 times the human exposure at the recommended dose of 120 mg daily based on AUC).

13.2 Animal Toxicology and/or Pharmacology


Phospholipidosis (intracellular phospholipid accumulation) was observed in multiple organs and tissues (e.g., liver, pancreas, spleen, kidney, lymph nodes, lung, bone marrow, gastrointestinal tract or testes) after repeated oral administration of relugolix in rats and monkeys. In a rat 26-week toxicity study, phospholipidosis was observed at doses ≥ 100 mg/kg (approximately 18 times the human exposure at the recommended dose based on AUC). In a monkey 39-week toxicity study, this effect was observed at doses ≥ 1.5 mg/kg (approximately 0.6 times the human exposure at the recommended dose based on AUC) and demonstrated evidence of reversibility after cessation of treatment. The significance of this finding in humans is unknown.

14 Clinical Studies



HERO Study

The safety and efficacy of ORGOVYX was evaluated in HERO (NCT03085095), a randomized, open label study in men with advanced prostate cancer requiring at least 1 year of androgen deprivation therapy and defined as biochemical (PSA) or clinical relapse following local primary intervention, newly diagnosed castration-sensitive metastatic disease, or advanced localized disease.

A total of 934 patients were randomized to receive ORGOVYX or leuprolide in a 2:1 ratio for 48 weeks:
  • ORGOVYX at a loading dose of 360 mg on the first day followed by daily doses of 120 mg orally
  • Leuprolide acetate 22.5 mg injection (or 11.25 mg in Japan and Taiwan) subcutaneously every 3 months. Leuprolide acetate 11.25 mg is a dosage regimen that is not recommended for this indication in the US.

Serum testosterone concentrations were measured at screening; on Days 1, 4, 8, 15, and 29 in the first month; then monthly until the end of the study.

The population (N = 930) across both treatment groups had a median age of 71 years (range 47 to 97 years). The ethnic/racial distribution was 68% White, 21% Asian, 4.9% Black, and 5% other. Disease stage was distributed as follows: 32% metastatic (M1), 31% locally advanced (T3/4 NX M0 or any T N1 M0), 28% localized (T1 or T2 N0 M0), and 10% not classifiable. The median testosterone concentration at baseline across the treatment groups was 408 ng/dL.

The major efficacy outcome measure was medical castration rate defined as achieving and maintaining serum testosterone suppression to castrate levels (< 50 ng/dL) by Day 29 through 48 weeks of treatment. Other endpoints included castration rates on Day 4 and 15 and castration rates with testosterone < 20 ng/dL at Day 15.

The efficacy results are shown in Table 3 and the timecourse of percent change from baseline in testosterone suppression by ORGOVYX and leuprolide during the 48 week treatment period are shown in Figure 2.
Table 3: Medical Castration Rates (Testosterone Concentrations < 50 ng/dL) from Day 29 through Week 48 in HERO
ORGOVYX 360/120 mg (N = 622) Two patients in each arm did not receive the study treatment and were not included. Leuprolide Acetate 22.5 or 11.25 mg 11.25 mg is a dosage regimen that is not recommended for this indication in the US. The castration rate of the subgroup of patients receiving 22.5 mg leuprolide (n = 264) was 88.0% (95% CI: 83.4%, 91.4%). (N = 308)
Castration Rate (95% CI) Kaplan-Meier estimates within group. 96.7% (94.9%, 97.9%) 88.8% (84.6%, 91.8%)

Figure 2: Mean (95% CI) Percent Change from Baseline in Testosterone Concentrations from Baseline to Week 49 by Treatment Group in HERO



The percentages of patients who attained the medical castration levels of testosterone < 50 ng/dL and < 20 ng/dL within the first 29 days of treatment are summarized in Table 4 and the cumulative incidences of time to testosterone < 50 ng/dL or < 20 ng/dL are shown in Figure 3.

Day 29 99% 82% 95% 57%

Figure 3: Cumulative Incidence of Time to Testosterone < 50 ng/dL and < 20 ng/dL in HERO





In the clinical trial, PSA levels were monitored and were lowered on average by 65% two weeks after administration of ORGOVYX, 83% after 4 weeks, 92% after 3 months and remained suppressed throughout the 48 weeks of treatment. These PSA results should be interpreted with caution because of the heterogeneity of the patient population studied. No evidence has shown that the rapidity of PSA decline is related to a clinical benefit.

A substudy was conducted in 137 patients who did not receive subsequent androgen deprivation therapy for at least 90 days after discontinuation of ORGOVYX. Based on Kaplan-Meier analyses, 55% of patients achieved testosterone levels above the lower limit of the normal range (> 280 ng/dL) or baseline at 90 days after discontinuation of ORGOVYX.
