marketing

authorisation

been

granted

pursuant

Article

10(1)

Directive

2001/83/EC.

Telmisartan is an orally active and specific angiotensin II receptor (type AT

) antagonist.

In human, an 80 mg dose of telmisartan almost completely inhibits the angiotensin II evoked

blood pressure increase. The inhibitory effect is maintained over 24 hours and still measurable

up to 48 hours.

II.

QUALITY ASPECTS

II.1

Introduction

Actelsar is a tablet which is presented in a Al/Al blister or a HDPE container.

II.2

Drug Substance

The active substance in Actelsar is telmisartan. The specification of the active substance

meets the current scientific requirements. The adequate quality of the active substance has

been shown by submitting the appropriate control data. The stability of the active substance

has been tested under ICH conditions. The results of the stability studies support the

established retest-period.

II.3

Medicinal Product

Actelsar contains the following excipients:

Magnesium stearate

Croscarmellose sodium

Mannitol (E421)

Povidone (K-29/32)

Potassium Hydroxide

The manufacturers responsible for batch release are:

Actavis hf, Reykjavikurvegur 76-28, 220 Hafnafjördur, Iceland.

Actavis Ltd, BLB 016 Bulebel Industrial Estate, ZTN 3000 Zejtun, Malta.

The development of the product has been sufficiently made and deemed appropriate. The

usage of all the excipients has been described.

The release specification includes the check of all parameters relevant to this pharmaceutical

form. Appropriate data concerning the control of the finished product support the compliance

with the release specifications.

The packaging of the medicinal product complies with the current legal requirements.

Stability studies under ICH conditions have been performed and data presented support the

shelf life claimed in the SmPC, with a shelf life of 24 months when stored in the original

package to protect from light.

The pharmaceutical quality of Actelsar has been adequately shown.

II.4

Discussion on chemical, pharmaceutical and biological aspects

Information on development, manufacture and control of active substance and medicinal

product has been presented in a satisfactory manner. The results of tests carried out indicate

satisfactory consistency and uniformity of important product quality characteristics.

III.

NON-CLINICAL ASPECTS

Pharmacodynamic,

pharmacokinetic

and toxicological

properties of telmisartan

are well

characterized and documented. As telmisartan is widely used and well-known, the applicant

has not provided additional studies and further studies are not required. Overview based on

literature review is, thus, appropriate.

III.1

Ecotoxicity/environmental risk assessment (ERA)

Since Actelsar is intended for generic substitution, this will not lead to an increased exposure

to the environment. An environmental risk assessment is therefore not deemed necessary.

IV.

CLINICAL ASPECTS

IV.1

Introduction

This is a generic application, therefore demonstration of therapeutic equivalence is shown by

means of pharmacokinetic bioavailability studies. New clinical studies are neither required

nor submitted. One Bioequivalence study has been submitted.

Bundesamt für Sicherheit im Gesundheitswesen

Traisengasse 5 | A-1200 Wien | www.basg.at | www.ages.at

IV.2

Pharmacokinetics

Three strengths are claimed by the applicant: 20, 40 and 80 mg. Bioequivalence to the brand

leader was tested only with the highest 80 mg strength. Biowaiver is claimed for the lower 40

and 20 mg strengths.

Biowaiver

The following criteria for a biowaiver are fulfilled:

All strengths are manufactured by the same manufacturer using the same process

The qualitative composition of the different strengths is the same

The ratio between amounts of active substance and excipients, is the same for all

strengths

All strengths exhibit similar in vitro dissolution profiles at different pH conditions

The drug in-put is not linear. The BA increases more than proportionally to the dose,

but the BE is investigated at the most sensitive conditions i.e. with the highest 80 mg

strength.

Bioequivalence study

Test product: Telmisartan 80 mg tablets

Reference product: Micardis 80 mg tablets, Boehringer Ingelheim GmbH

study

designed

according

open-label,

randomised,

single-dose,

2-way

crossover, 2-sequence classical scheme.

Healthy non-smoking adult female and male volunteers were enrolled. In each period,

subjects were housed before dosing until after the 24-hour post-dose events. Subjects were

required to return to the clinical facility the 36, 48, 72, 96, and 120-hour blood draws.

On the morning of Day 1, in each period, subjects received a single oral 80 mg dose, after an

overnight fast, with 240 ml of water. Doses were separated by a 14-day washout period.

A total of 25 blood samples were collected in each period at pre-dose (2 samples) and at

0.167, 0.333, 0.5, 0.667, 0.833, 1, 1.25, 1.5, 1.75, 2, 2.5, 3, 4, 5, 8, 12, 24, 36, 48, 72, 96, and

120 hours post-dose.

Pharmacokinetic Variables

Relevant PK parameters of telmisartan were estimated. The pharmacokinetic parameters

0-t,

0-inf

and t

were either observed or calculated. AUC was calculated by the

trapezoidal rule. C

and t

were directly estimated from the individual concentrations

versus time profiles.

Bioequivalence Criteria:

Bioequivalence could be concluded if the 90 % CI of the ratio of the least square means of the

test to reference products is within 80-125 % for AUC and 75-133 % for C

No statement is made for t

The point estimate for the ratio is 0.85 and the 90% CI is not included in the standard

[80;125]% acceptance range. The applicant claimed that the acceptance range should be

widened and set to [75;133]%. This claim is extensively justified in the study protocol.

Conclusion on bioequivalence studies:

Based

submitted

study,

Actelsar

Tabletten

considered

bioequivalent with Micardis 80 mg tablets.

The results of the bioequivalence study with the 80 mg formulation can be extrapolated to the

other strengths 20 mg and 40 mg, according to conditions in Guideline on the Investigation of

Bioequivalence CPMP/EWP/QWP/1401/98 Rev. 1/Corr*, section 4.1.6.

The justification for BCS (Biopharmaceutics Classification System) - based biowaiver can be

accepted.

IV.3

Pharmacodynamics

Pharmacodynamic

properties of telmisartan

are well characterized

and documented. As

telmisartan is widely used and well-known, the applicant has not provided additional studies

and further studies are not required.

Bundesamt für Sicherheit im Gesundheitswesen

Traisengasse 5 | A-1200 Wien | www.basg.at | www.ages.at

IV.4

Clinical efficacy and safety

Efficacy and safety of telmisartan in the proposed indications are known and assessed as

being scientifically based considering recent knowledge, guidelines, and recommendations.

The safety profile of the test product is comparable with the safety profile of the reference

product.

IV.5

Risk Management Plan

No Risk Management Plan (RMP) is in place for Actelsar.

Marketing authorisation was granted before the new pharmacovigilance legislation came into

force. Therefore it is accepted that the marketing authorisation holder did not submit a RMP.

IV.6

Discussion on the clinical aspects

The dossier contains an adequate review of published clinical data and bioequivalence has

been shown for the 80 mg formulation. For the 20 mg and 40 mg formulations a biowaver can

be granted.

V.

USER CONSULTATION

The package leaflet has been evaluated via a user consultation study in accordance with the

requirements of Articles 59(3) and 61(1) of Directive 2001/83/EC. The language used for the

purpose of user testing the PIL was English.

The results show that the package leaflet meets the criteria for readability as set out in the

Guideline on the readability of the label and package leaflet of medicinal products for human

use.

VI.

OVERALL CONCLUSION, BENEFIT/RISK ASSESSMENT AND

RECOMMENDATION

Bioequivalence of Actelsar 80 mg Tabletten with the reference product Micardis 80 mg

tablets, Boehringer Ingelheim, has been shown. Additionally, a biowaver has been granted for

Actelsar 20 mg Tabletten and Actelsar 40 mg Tabletten.
