I INTRODUCTION, Based on the review of the quality safety and efficacy data the member states have granted a marketing. authorisation for Crestor 5 10 20 40 5 10 20 40 mg film coated tablets from AstraZeneca The date of. authorisation was on 6 November 2002 10 mg 20 mg 40 mg and on 20 July 2004 5 mg in the. Netherlands The product is indicated for treatment of. primary hypercholesterolaemia type IIa including heterozygous familial hypercholesterolaemia or. mixed dyslipidaemia type IIb as an adjunct to diet when response to diet and other non. pharmacological treatments e g exercise weight reduction is inadequate. homozygous familial hypercholesterolaemia as an adjunct to diet and other lipid lowering treatments. e g LDL apheresis or if such treatments are not appropriate. A comprehensive description of the indications and posology is given in the SPC. The data presented in this PAR with regard to Crestor also apply to the dossiers of Cirantan Provisacor. and Rovustatine AstraZeneca NL H 0344 0346 001 004 MR. Rosuvastatin is a selective and competitive inhibitor of HMG CoA reductase the rate limiting enzyme that. converts 3 hydroxy 3 methylglutaryl coenzyme A to mevalonate a precursor for cholesterol The primary. site of action of rosuvastatin is the liver the target organ for cholesterol lowering. Rosuvastatin increases the number of hepatic LDL receptors on the cell surface enhancing uptake and. catabolism of LDL and it inhibits the hepatic synthesis of VLDL thereby reducing the total number of. VLDL and LDL particles, This repeat use procedure concerns a so called full dossier application according to Article 8 3 of. Directive 2001 83 EC a dossier with administrative chemical pharmaceutical pre clinial and clinical data. The application is supported by a full dossier and consists of the initial dossier submitted for the first wave. that is updated with post approval safety and efficacy data from clinical and observational trials and post. marketing data Furthermore a Pharmacovigilance System and an Environmental Risk Assessment have. been added to the original dossier, The dossier has been updated with data and changes from both the first round MRP as well as post. approval variations On pages 15 19 all post approval variations are summarized The variations are. sorted into three groups variations after finalisation of the initial MRP procedure but before the repeat use. procedure 10 20 40 mg variations for 5 mg strength after MRP before repeat use procedure and. variations after finalisation of the repeat use procedure for all strengths. In addition two annexes are presented, Annex I in which type II variation NL H 343 II 033 is discussed Through this variation an indication for. a subset of the paediatric population was approved and incorporated with the adult indication Adults. adolescents and children aged 10 years or older with primary hypercholesterolaemia type IIa. including heterozygous familial hypercholersterolaemia or mixed dyslipidaemia type IIb as an. adjunct to diet when response to diet and other non pharmacological treatments e g exercise weight. reduction is inadequate, Annex II includes a discussion of type II variation NL H 343 II 035 Through this variation an additional.
indication was approved Prevention of major cardiovascular events in patients who are estimated to. have a high risk for a first cardiovascular event See Section 5 1 as an adjunct to correction of other. risk factors,The initial MRP procedures,10 20 40 mg. The original MRP procedure for the 10 mg 20 mg and 40 mg NL H 343 001 003 MR started on 7. December 2002 and ended on 7 March 2003 At day 90 7 March 2003 the marketing authorisation was. mutually recognised by AT BE DK EL FI IC IRL IT LU PT SE and UK. By day 50 of that procedure potential serious health concerns were raised by AT BE ES FR IRL IT. NO SE and UK The major issues raised by the CMS in their day 50 comments were the starting dose of. 5 mg vs 10 mg the benefit risk ratio of the 40 mg dose the use in patients with renal and liver. dysfunction and the pharmacokinetic interactions, The application for all strengths was withdrawn in Germany Norway and Spain In France the application. for 40 mg tablets was withdrawn only because of their concern with the safety of this dose level renal. The original MRP procedure for the 5 mg strength started on 8 august 2004 and ended on 19 August. 2005 At day 90 2 November 2004 there were potential serious outstanding issues and therefore the. application was referred under Article 29 to the CHMP The List of Questions that was dealt with during. the referral concerned clinical efficacy en safety. During its April 2005 meeting the CHMP in the light of the overall data submitted and the scientific. discussion within the Committee was of the opinion that the benefit risk ratio is favourable for Crestor 5. mg or Crestor 10 mg both as start dose The choice of start dose in the individual patient should take into. account aspects of efficacy and safety as detailed in the SPC Changes to SPC section 4 2 Posology. and method of administration and 4 4 Special warnings and special precautions for use arising from the. arbitration process were agreed by the CHMP and a positive opinion was adopted on 21 April 2005 The. final opinion was converted into a Decision by the European Commission on 9 August 2005. No scientific advice has been given to the MAH with respect to these products. II SCIENTIFIC OVERVIEW AND DISCUSSION,II 1 Quality aspects. Compliance with Good Manufacturing Practice, The MEB has been assured that acceptable standards of GMP see Directive 2003 94 EC are in place for. this product type at all sites responsible for the manufacturing of the active substance as well as for the. manufacturing and assembly of this product prior to granting its national authorisation. Active substance, Rosuvastatin calcium is a novel active substance The active substance is a white powder which shows.
no polymorphism Detailed information is present regarding nomenclature structural and molecular. formulas and molecular mass,Manufacture, Synthesis routes for the manufacturing of rosuvastatin calcium are presented The first steps leads from. the starting materials to the intermediate In subsequent steps the intermediates are obtained and finally. the calcium salt In 2005 the original process has been optimised by reducing the number of overall steps. Adequate descriptions of manufacturing steps control of critical steps and intermediates are present. Quality control of drug substance, Specifications for rosuvastatin calcium comprise testings on identity IR spectroscopy chiral HPLC. calcium ion assay by HPLC and calcium content related substances optical purity by HPLC residual. solvents by GC water content chloride content and particle size There are eight stereoisomers due to. two chiral centers and a double bond with four different groups by adequate analytical methods the. unwanted stereoisomers are limited The active substance is an amorphous solid without the occurrence. of polymorphs The specification is adequate to guarantee a satisfactory quality of the active substance. More than twenty possible structures related to the active substance synthesis related or degradation. products have been identified and are controlled by HPLC to assure acceptable low levels of these. impurities in the active substance,Stability of drug substance. The MAH claimed a re test period of eighteen months when stored in the proposed packaging at 2 8 C. and protected from light Stability studies have been performed using three pilot scale and three. production scale batches at 2 8 C and accelerated conditions 25 C 60 RH up to 60 C 80 RH. Photostability studies demonstrated the protective capability of the proposed packaging Eighteen months. results meeting the set specifications confirm the validity of the claimed re test period and storage.
