pursuant

Article

Directive

2001/83/EC.

Vildagliptin/Metformin 1A Pharma 50 mg/850 mg, 50 mg/1000 mg - Filmtabletten combines

two antihyperglycaemic agents with complimentary mechanisms of action to improve

glycaemic control in patients with type 2 diabetes: vildagliptin, a member of the islet enhancer

class, and metformin hydrochloride, a member of the biguanide class.

Vildagliptin, a member of the islet enhancer class, is a potent and selective dipeptidyl-

peptidase-4 (DPP-4) inhibitor. Metformin acts primarily by decreasing endogenous hepatic

glucose production.

III.1

Introduction

Pharmacodynamic, pharmacokinetic and toxicological properties of Vildagliptin and

Metformin Hydrochloride are well known. As Vildagliptin and Metformin Hydrochloride is a

widely used, well-known active substance, the applicant has not provided additional studies

and further studies are not required. Overview based on literature review is, thus, appropriate

III.2

Ecotoxicity/environmental risk assessment (ERA)

Since Vildagliptin/Metformin 1A Pharma 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.

CLINICAL ASPECTS

IV.1

Introduction

The clinical overview is dated 15th December 2015. The Report refers 257 publications up to

year 2015.

Bioequivalence studies

Vildagliptin/Metformin 50 mg/850 mg and 50 mg/1000 mg film-coated tablets will be

produced with the same qualitative and quantitative composition, at the same manufacturing site,

using the same manufacturing procedure and the same source of active substances as the currently

approved reference product Eucreas 50 mg/850 mg and 50 mg/1000 mg film-coated tablets. Therefore,

no bioequivalence study was performed.

The submission is a generic application; therefore no new data on clinical safety have been

provided and none are required.

The clinical overview on the clinical pharmacology, efficacy and safety is adequate.

IV.2

Risk Management Plan

The MAH has submitted a risk management plan, in accordance with the requirements of

Directive

2001/83/EC
