Immedica Pharma and Innovative Medicines announces ANMAT (Argentina) and INVIMA (Colombia) filing acceptance of RAVICTI® (glycerol phenylbutyrate), a adjunctive therapy for chronic management of patients with urea cycle disorders (UCDs)

Immedica Pharma AB, and Innovative Medicines SA, announces two submissions of marketing authorization applications to:

  • The National Agency of Medicines, Food and Medical Technology (ANMAT) in Argentina.
  • The Colombia National Food and Drug Surveillance Institute (INVIMA)

Both applications are to seek approval for treatment with RAVICTI® (glycerol phenylbutyrate) as an adjunctive therapy for chronic management of patients with urea cycle disorders (UCDs) – who cannot be managed by dietary protein restriction and/or amino acid supplementation alone.

“It’s a natural step for us to continue the expansion of RAVICTI® to ensure the best possible treatment for patients with urea cycle disorders in different parts of the world,” says Anders Edvell, CEO of Immedica.

In 2021 Innovative Medicines and Immedica Pharma signed an agreement for the exclusive distribution and marketing of Ravicti and Ammonaps (sodium phenylbutyrate) for Argentina, Colombia and other territories in Latin America.

About Urea Cycle Disorders (UCD)

Urea cycle disorders are a group of metabolic diseases that affect a specific enzyme or transporter in the urea cycle leading to elevated ammonia or glutamine levels in the circulation. Symptoms of the disorder can begin at any age, with more severe defects beginning early in life. UCD patients may experience episodes, called hyperammonemic crises, when ammonia levels in the blood become excessively high, which can result in irreversible brain damage, coma or death. As a group, these disorders occur in 1 in 30,000 newborns in the territories where Immedica has the product rights.
