Aquestive Therapeutics, Inc. announced on August 31 that Sympazan™ (clobazam) oral film has received tentative approval by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), for the adjunctive treatment of seizures associated with Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome (LGS) in patients 2 years of age or older. Currently, clobazam is marketed as ONFI® and offered in two formulations – either tablet or oral suspension.
“We saw a need in the LGS community for a simpler, more consistent way to administer a full dose of clobazam – and we are now one step closer to bringing this important treatment to patients, caregivers and physicians,” said Keith J. Kendall, Chief Executive Officer of Aquestive Therapeutics. “This tentative approval for Sympazan is a key milestone for Aquestive, as it represents the first in a series of late stage proprietary products Aquestive plans to commercialize once they are approved. We believe Sympazan and our other products in development solve important therapeutic problems, and will meaningfully improve the lives of patients and their caregivers.”
