Side Effects & Drug Interactions

SIDE EFFECTS

The following clinically significant adverse reaction is described elsewhere in the labeling:

  • Urinary retention [see WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS]

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 of GEMTESA was evaluated in a 12-week, double-blind, placebo-and active-controlled study (Study 3003) in patients with OAB [see Clinical Studies]. A total of 545 patients received GEMTESA. The majority of the patients were Caucasian (78%) and female (85%) with a mean age of 60 years (range 18 to 93 years).

Adverse reactions that were reported in Study 3003 at an incidence greater than placebo and in ≥2% of patients treated with GEMTESA are listed in Table 1.

Other adverse reactions reported in <2% of patients treated with GEMTESA included:

Gastrointestinal disorders: dry mouth, constipation

Investigations: residual urine volume increased

Renal and urinary disorders: urinary retention

Vascular disorders: hot flush

GEMTESA was also evaluated for long-term safety in an extension study (Study 3004) in 505 patients who completed the 12-week study (Study 3003). Of the 273 patients who received GEMTESA 75 mg once daily in the extension study, 181 patients were treated for a total of one year.

Adverse reactions reported in ≥2% of patients treated with GEMTESA 75 mg for up to 52 weeks in the longterm extension study, and not already listed above, were urinary tract infection (6.6%) and bronchitis (2.9%).

Postmarketing Experience

The following adverse reactions have been identified during post-approval use of vibegron. Because these reactions are reported voluntarily from a population of uncertain size, it is not always possible to reliably estimate their frequency or establish a causal relationship to drug exposure. The following adverse events have been reported in association with vibegron use in worldwide postmarketing experience:

Urologic disorders: urinary retention

Skin and subcutaneous tissue disorders: pruritus, rash, drug eruption, eczema

Gastrointestinal disorders: constipation

DRUG INTERACTIONS

Concomitant use of GEMTESA increases digoxin maximal concentrations (Cmax) and systemic exposure as assessed by area under the concentration-time curve (AUC) [see CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY]. Serum digoxin concentrations should be monitored before initiating and during therapy with GEMTESA and used for titration of the digoxin dose to obtain the desired clinical effect. Continue monitoring digoxin concentrations upon discontinuation of GEMTESA and adjust digoxin dose as needed.

Warnings & Precautions

WARNINGS

Included as part of the PRECAUTIONS section.

PRECAUTIONS

Urinary Retention

Urinary retention has been reported in patients taking GEMTESA. The risk of urinary retention may be increased in patients with bladder outlet obstruction and also in patients taking muscarinic antagonist medications for the treatment of OAB. Monitor patients for signs and symptoms of urinary retention, particularly in patients with bladder outlet obstruction and patients taking muscarinic antagonist medications for the treatment of OAB. Discontinue GEMTESA in patients who develop urinary retention [see ADVERSE REACTIONS].

Patient Counseling Information

Advise the patient to read the FDA-approved patient labeling (PATIENT INFORMATION).

Urinary Retention

Inform patients that GEMTESA has been associated with urinary retention. Inform patients that the risk of urinary retention may be increased in patients taking muscarinic antagonist medications for the treatment of OAB. Instruct patients to contact their healthcare provider if they experience symptoms consistent with urinary retention while taking GEMTESA [see WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS].

Administration Instructions

Advise patients that GEMTESA tablets can be swallowed whole with a glass of water or may be crushed, mixed with a tablespoon of applesauce and taken immediately with a glass of water [see DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION].

Nonclinical Toxicology

Carcinogenesis, Mutagenesis, Impairment Of Fertility

Carcinogenesis

No carcinogenicity was observed in long-term studies conducted in mice and rats treated with daily oral doses of vibegron for approximately 2 years. In the mouse carcinogenicity study, CD-1 mice were treated with daily oral doses of vibegron up to 90 mg/kg/day in males and up to 150 mg/kg/day in females, corresponding to estimated systemic exposures (AUC) 21-and 55-fold higher, respectively, than in humans treated with the recommended daily dose of GEMTESA. In the rat carcinogenicity study, Sprague Dawley rats were treated with daily oral doses of vibegron up to 30 mg/kg/day in males and up to 180 mg/kg/day in females, corresponding to systemic exposures (AUC) 18-and 117-fold higher, respectively, than in humans treated with the recommended daily dose of GEMTESA.

Mutagenesis

Vibegron was not mutagenic in in vitro microbial reverse mutation assays, showed no evidence of genotoxic activity in an in vitro human peripheral blood lymphocyte chromosomal aberration assay, and did not increase the frequency of micronucleated polychromatic erythrocytes in an in vivo rat bone marrow micronucleus assay.

Impairment Of Fertility

In fertility/general reproductive toxicity studies conducted in rats, females were treated with daily oral doses of 0, 30, 100, 300, or 1000 mg/kg/day vibegron and males were treated with daily oral doses of 0, 10, 30, or 300 mg/kg/day vibegron. No effects on fertility were observed in female or male rats at doses up to 300 mg/kg/day, associated with systemic exposure (AUC) at least 274-fold higher than in humans treated with the recommended daily dose of GEMTESA. General toxicity, decreased fecundity, and decreased fertility were observed in female rats at 1000 mg/kg/day, associated with estimated systemic exposure 1867-fold higher than in humans treated with the recommended daily dose of GEMTESA.

Use In Specific Populations

Pregnancy

Risk Summary

There are no available data on GEMTESA use in pregnant women to evaluate for a drug-associated risk of major birth defects, miscarriage, or adverse maternal or fetal outcomes.

In animal studies, no effects on embryofetal development were observed following administration of vibegron during the period of organogenesis at exposures approximately 275-fold and 285-fold greater than clinical exposure at the recommended daily dose of GEMTESA, in rats and rabbits, respectively. Delayed fetal skeletal ossification was observed in rabbits at approximately 898-fold clinical exposure, in the presence of maternal toxicity. In rats treated with vibegron during pregnancy and lactation, no effects on offspring were observed at 89-fold clinical exposure. Developmental toxicity was observed in offspring at approximately 458-fold clinical exposure, in the presence of maternal toxicity. No effects on offspring were observed at 89-fold clinical exposure (see Data).

The background risk of major birth defects and miscarriage for the indicated population is unknown. All pregnancies carry some risk of birth defect, loss, or other adverse outcomes. 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 developmental toxicity study, pregnant rats were treated with daily oral doses of 0, 30, 100, 300, or 1000 mg/kg/day vibegron during the period of organogenesis (Days 6 to 20 of gestation). These doses were associated with systemic exposures (AUC) 0-, 9-, 89-, 275-, and 1867-fold higher, respectively, than in humans treated with the recommended daily dose of GEMTESA. No embryo-fetal developmental toxicity was observed at doses up to 300 mg/kg/day. Treatment with the high dose of 1000 mg/kg/day was discontinued due to maternal toxicity.

In an embryo-fetal developmental toxicity study, pregnant rabbits were treated with daily oral doses of 0, 30, 100, or 300 mg/kg/day vibegron during the period of organogenesis (Days 7 to 20 of gestation). These doses were associated with systemic exposures (AUC) 0-, 86-, 285-, and 898-fold higher, respectively, than in humans treated with the recommended daily dose of GEMTESA. No embryo-fetal developmental toxicity was observed at doses of vibegron up to 100 mg/kg/day. Maternal toxicity (decreased food consumption), reduced fetal body weight, and an increased incidence of delayed skeletal ossification, were observed at 300 mg/kg/day.

In a pre-and post-natal developmental toxicity study, pregnant or lactating rats were treated with daily oral doses of 0, 30, 100, or 500 mg/kg/day vibegron from day 6 of gestation through day 20 of lactation. These doses were associated with estimated systemic exposures (AUC) 0-, 9-, 89-, and 458-fold higher, respectively, than in humans treated with the recommended daily dose of GEMTESA. No developmental toxicity was observed in F1 offspring at doses up to 100 mg/kg/day. Maternal toxicity was observed during lactation (decreased body weight gain) at doses ≥100 mg/kg/day and during gestation (decreased body weight gain and food consumption) at 500 mg/kg/day. Developmental toxicity was observed in F1 offspring (increased stillborn index, lethality, reduced viability and weaning indices, decreased body weight and body weight gains, low physical development differentiation indices, and effects on sensory function and reflexes) at 500 mg/kg/day.

Lactation

Risk Summary

There are no data on the presence of vibegron in human milk, the effects of the drug on the breastfed infant, or the effects on milk production. When a single oral dose of radiolabeled vibegron was administered to postnatal nursing rats, radioactivity was observed in milk (see Data). When a drug is present in animal milk, it is likely that the drug will be present in human milk.

The developmental and health benefits of breastfeeding should be considered along with the mother’s clinical need for GEMTESA and any potential adverse effects on the breastfed infant from GEMTESA or from the underlying maternal condition.

Data

Animal Data

In a lactational transfer study, lactating rats were treated with a single oral dose of 10 mg/kg radiolabeled [3H] vibegron on postpartum day 10. Levels of radioactivity were determined in milk and plasma collected at 1, 4, 12, and 24 after dosing. The Cmax of total radioactivity in milk and plasma were observed at 9 and 2 hours after dosing, respectively, with a maximum milk-to-plasma concentration ratio of 2.2 observed at 12 hours after dosing. Vibegron elimination from milk showed a similar trend as that from plasma. The radioactivity concentration in milk at 24 hours after administration was approximately 25% of the Cmax.

Pediatric Use

The safety and effectiveness of GEMTESA in pediatric patients have not been established.

Geriatric Use

Of 526 patients who received GEMTESA in the clinical studies for OAB with symptoms of urge urinary incontinence, urgency, and urinary frequency, 242 (46%) were 65 years of age or older, and 75 (14%) were 75 years of age or older [see Clinical Studies]. No overall differences in safety or effectiveness of GEMTESA have been observed between patients 65 years of age and older and younger adult patients.

Renal Impairment

No dosage adjustment for GEMTESA is recommended for patients with mild, moderate, or severe renal impairment (eGFR 15 to <90 mL/min/1.73 m²). GEMTESA has not been studied in patients with eGFR <15 mL/min/1.73 m² (with or without hemodialysis) and is not recommended in these patients [see CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY].

Hepatic Impairment

No dosage adjustment for GEMTESA is recommended for patients with mild to moderate hepatic impairment (Child-Pugh A and B). GEMTESA has not be studied in patients with severe hepatic impairment (Child-Pugh C) and is not recommended in this patient population [see CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY].

Overdosage & Contraindications

OVERDOSE

There is no experience with inadvertent GEMTESA overdosage. In case of suspected overdose, treatment should be symptomatic and supportive.

CONTRAINDICATIONS

GEMTESA is contraindicated in patients with known hypersensitivity to vibegron or any components of the product [see ADVERSE REACTIONS].

Clinical Pharmacology

CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY

Mechanism Of Action

Vibegron is a selective human beta-3 adrenergic receptor agonist. Activation of the beta-3 adrenergic receptor increases bladder capacity by relaxing the detrusor smooth muscle during bladder filling.

Pharmacodynamics

Vibegron’s exposure-response relationship and the time course of pharmacodynamic response are not fully characterized.

Blood Pressure

In a 4-week, randomized, placebo-controlled, ambulatory blood pressure study in OAB patients (n=200), daily treatment with GEMTESA 75 mg was not associated with clinically significant changes in blood pressure. Subjects enrolled in this study had a mean age of 59 years and 75% were female. Thirty-five percent of subjects had pre-existing hypertension at baseline and 29% of all subjects were taking at least 1 concomitant antihypertensive medication.

Cardiac Electrophysiology

GEMTESA does not prolong the QT interval to any clinically relevant extent at a single dose 5.3 times the approved recommended dose.

Pharmacokinetics

Mean vibegron Cmax and AUC increased in a greater than dose-proportional manner up to 600 mg (8 times the approved recommended dosage). Steady state concentrations are achieved within 7 days of once daily dosing. The mean accumulation ratio (Rac) was 1.7 for Cmax and 2.4 for AUC0-24hr.

Absorption

Median vibegron Tmax is approximately 1 to 3 hours.

Oral administration of a 75 mg vibegron tablet crushed and mixed with 15 mL of applesauce resulted in no clinically relevant changes in vibegron pharmacokinetics when compared to administration of an intact 75 mg vibegron tablet.

Effect Of Food

No clinically significant differences in vibegron pharmacokinetics were observed following administration of a high-fat meal (53% fat, 869 calories [32.1 g protein, 70.2 g carbohydrate, and 51.1 g fat]).

Distribution

The mean apparent volume of distribution is 6304 liters. Human plasma protein binding of vibegron is approximately 50%. The average blood-to-plasma concentration ratio is 0.9.

Elimination

Vibegron has an effective half-life of 30.8 hours across all populations.

Metabolism

Metabolism plays a minor role in the elimination of vibegron. CYP3A4 is the predominant enzyme responsible for in vitro metabolism.

Excretion

Following a radiolabeled dose, approximately 59% of the dose (54% as unchanged) was recovered in feces and 20% (19% as unchanged) in urine.

Specific Populations

No clinically significant differences in the pharmacokinetics of vibegron were observed based on age (18 to 93 years), sex, race/ethnicity (Japanese vs. non-Japanese), mild (eGFR 60 to <90 mL/min/1.73 m²), moderate (eGFR 30 to <60 mL/min/1.73 m²), and severe (eGFR 15 to <30 mL/min/1.73 m²) renal impairment, or moderate (Child-Pugh B) hepatic impairment. The effect of more severe renal impairment (eGFR <15 mL/min/1.73 m²) with or without hemodialysis or severe (Child-Pugh C) hepatic impairment on vibegron pharmacokinetics was not studied.

Drug Interaction Studies

Clinical Studies

Digoxin

Concomitant administration of vibegron increased digoxin Cmax and AUC by 21% and 11%, respectively.

Other Drugs

No clinically significant differences in vibegron pharmacokinetics were observed when used concomitantly with ketoconazole (P-gp and strong CYP3A4 inhibitor), diltiazem (P-gp and moderate CYP3A4 inhibitor), rifampin (strong CYP3A4 inducer), or tolterodine. No clinically significant differences in the pharmacokinetics of the following drugs were observed when used concomitantly with vibegron: tolterodine, tolterodine 5-hyroxy metabolite, metoprolol, combined oral contraceptive (ethinyl estradiol, levonorgestrel), or warfarin.

In Vitro Studies

Cytochrome P450 (CYP) Enzymes

Vibegron is a CYP3A4 substrate. Vibegron did not inhibit CYP1A2, CYP2B6, CYP2C8, CYP2C9, CYP2C19, CYP2D6, or CYP3A4. Vibegron did not induce CYP1A2, CYP2B6, or CYP3A4.

Transporter Systems

Vibegron is a P-gp substrate. Vibegron did not inhibit P-gp, BCRP, OATP1B1, OATP1B3, OAT1, OAT3, OCT1, OCT2, MATE1, or MATE2K at clinically relevant concentrations.

Clinical Studies

The efficacy of GEMTESA was evaluated in a 12-week, double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled, and active-controlled trial (Study 3003, NCT03492281) in patients with OAB (urge urinary incontinence, urgency, and urinary frequency). Patients were randomized 5:5:4 to receive either GEMTESA 75 mg, placebo, or active control orally, once daily for 12 weeks. For study entry, patients had to have symptoms of OAB for at least 3 months with an average of 8 or more micturitions per day and at least 1 urge urinary incontinence (UUI) per day, or an average of 8 or more micturitions per day and an average of at least 3 urgency episodes per day. Urge urinary incontinence was defined as leakage of urine of any amount because the patient felt an urge or need to urinate immediately. The study population included OAB medication-naive patients as well as patients who had received prior therapy with OAB medications.

The co-primary endpoints were change from baseline in average daily number of micturitions and average daily number of UUI episodes at week 12. Additional endpoints included change from baseline in average daily number of “need to urinate immediately” (urgency) episodes and average volume voided per micturition.

A total of 1,515 patients received at least one daily dose of placebo (n=540), GEMTESA 75 mg (n=545), or an active control treatment (n=430). The majority of patients were Caucasian (78%) and female (85%) with a mean age of 60 (range 18 to 93) years.

Table 2 shows changes from baseline at week 12 for average daily number of micturitions, average daily number of UUI episodes, average daily number of “need to urinate immediately” (urgency) episodes, and average volume voided per micturition.
