Riassunto destinato al pubblico

Ucedane

acido carglumico

Questo è il riassunto della relazione pubblica europea di valutazione (EPAR) per Ucedane. Illustra il

modo in cui l’Agenzia ha valutato il medicinale arrivando a raccomandarne l’autorizzazione nell’UE e le

condizioni d’uso. Non ha lo scopo di fornire consigli pratici sull’utilizzo di Ucedane.

Per informazioni pratiche sull’uso di Ucedane i pazienti devono leggere il foglio illustrativo oppure

consultare il medico o il farmacista.

Che cos’è e per che cosa si usa Ucedane?

Ucedane è un medicinale utilizzato per il trattamento dell’iperammoniemia (livelli ematici elevati di

ammoniaca) in pazienti affetti da deficit di N-acetilglutammato sintasi (NAGS). I pazienti con questa

malattia cronica mostrano una carenza di NAGS, ossia di un enzima presente nel fegato che di norma

concorre a degradare l’ammoniaca. Se tale enzima non è presente, l’ammoniaca non può essere

degradata e si accumula nel sangue.

Ucedane contiene il principio attivo acido carglumico ed è un “medicinale generico”. Questo significa

che Ucedane contiene lo stesso principio attivo e agisce nello stesso modo di un “medicinale di

riferimento”, già autorizzato nell’Unione europea (UE), denominato Carbaglu. Per maggiori informazioni

sui medicinali generici, consultare le domande e le risposte cliccando qui.

Come si usa Ucedane?

Ucedane è disponibile sotto forma di compresse dispersibili (200 mg) che devono essere disperse

(miscelate) in poca acqua. Il medicinale può essere ottenuto soltanto con prescrizione medica e la

terapia deve essere iniziata da un medico esperto nel trattamento di pazienti con malattie metaboliche

come il deficit di NAGS.

Ucedane

EMA/275686/2017

Page 2/2

Il trattamento può essere avviato a partire dalla nascita e l’assunzione del medicinale prosegue

durante l’intera vita del paziente.

La dose giornaliera iniziale di Ucedane deve essere di 100 mg per chilogrammo di peso corporeo; se

necessario il dosaggio può essere aumentato fino a 250 mg/kg. In seguito, la dose dovrà essere

regolata per mantenere nella norma i livelli di ammoniaca nel sangue.

Come agisce Ucedane?

Quando l’ammoniaca si accumula nel sangue, diventa tossica per l’organismo e per il cervello in

particolare. Il principio attivo di Ucedane, acido carglumico, ha una struttura molto simile

all’N-acetilglutammato, il quale attiva un enzima che degrada l’ammoniaca. Ucedane, pertanto,

favorisce la degradazione dell’ammoniaca, riducendone la concentrazione nel sangue e, di

conseguenza, gli effetti tossici.

Quali studi sono stati effettuati su Ucedane?

Studi sui benefici e sui rischi del principio attivo per l’uso approvato sono già stati effettuati con il

medicinale di riferimento, Carbaglu, e non devono pertanto essere ripetuti per Ucedane.

Come per ogni medicinale, la ditta ha messo a disposizione studi sulla qualità di Ucedane. Inoltre, ha

effettuato uno studio che ha evidenziato la sua “bioequivalenza” rispetto al medicinale di riferimento.

Due medicinali sono bioequivalenti quando producono gli stessi livelli di principio attivo nell’organismo,

per cui è atteso che abbiano lo stesso effetto.

Quali sono i benefici e i rischi di Ucedane?

Poiché Ucedane è un medicinale generico ed è bioequivalente al medicinale di riferimento, i suoi

benefici e rischi sono considerati uguali a quelli del medicinale di riferimento.

Perché Ucedane è approvato?

Il comitato per i medicinali per uso umano (CHMP) dell’Agenzia ha concluso che, conformemente ai

requisiti dell’UE, Ucedane ha mostrato di possedere qualità comparabili e di essere bioequivalente a

Carbaglu. Pertanto, il CHMP ha ritenuto che, come nel caso di Carbaglu, i benefici siano superiori ai

rischi individuati e ha raccomandato di approvare l’uso di Ucedane nell’UE.

Quali sono le misure prese per garantire l’uso sicuro ed efficace di

Ucedane?

Le raccomandazioni e le precauzioni che gli operatori sanitari e i pazienti devono osservare affinché

Ucedane sia usato in modo sicuro ed efficace sono state riportate nel riassunto delle caratteristiche del

prodotto e nel foglio illustrativo.

1.

Cos’è Ucedane e a cosa serve

Ucedane può aiutare a eliminare livelli eccessivi di ammoniaca nel plasma (elevato livello di

ammoniaca nel sangue). L’ammoniaca è particolarmente tossica per il cervello e, in casi gravi, può

portare a ridotti livelli di coscienza e al coma.

L’iperammonemia (elevato livello di ammoniaca nel sangue) può essere causata dalla mancanza di

uno specifico enzima del fegato, la N-acetilglutammato sintasi. I pazienti affetti da questa rara

patologia non sono in grado di eliminare i rifiuti metabolici azotati che si formano dopo l’assunzione

di proteine. Questa patologia persiste durante l’intera vita del paziente e pertanto richiede il presente

trattamento per tutta la vita.

2.

Cosa deve sapere prima di prendere Ucedane

Non prenda Ucedane

se è allergico all'acido carglumico o ad uno qualsiasi degli altri componenti di questo medicinale

(elencati al paragrafo 6);

durante l’allattamento con latte materno.

Avvertenze e precauzioni

Si rivolga al medico o al farmacista prima di prendere Ucedane.

Il trattamento con Ucedane deve iniziare sotto la supervisione di un medico esperto nel trattamento dei

disturbi metabolici.

Il medico dovrà valutare la responsività individuale all’acido carglumico prima di iniziare un

trattamento a lungo termine.

La dose deve essere adattata individualmente per mantenere i normali livelli di ammoniaca nel plasma.

Il medico potrà prescrivere arginina supplementare o limitare l’apporto proteico.

Per tenere sotto osservazione il disturbo e la risposta al trattamento, il medico potrà sottoporla

periodicamente a esami della funzionalità di fegato, reni e cuore e ad analisi del sangue.

Altri medicinali e Ucedane

Informi il medico o il farmacista se sta usando, ha recentemente usato o potrebbe usare qualsiasi altro

medicinale.

Ucedane con cibi e bevande

Ucedane va assunto per via orale prima dei pasti o dell’assunzione di cibo.

Le compresse devono essere disperse in almeno 5-10 ml d’acqua e ingerite immediatamente.

Gravidanza e allattamento

Non sono noti gli effetti di Ucedane sulla gravidanza e sul feto. Consulti il medico in caso di

gravidanza accertata o qualora intenda iniziare una gravidanza.

Non è stata studiata l’escrezione di acido carglumico nel latte materno nelle donne. Tuttavia, poiché è

stata dimostrata la presenza di acido carglumico nel latte delle femmine di ratto in allattamento, con

potenziali effetti tossici per i neonati allattati, se sta assumendo Ucedane non deve allattare con latte

materno.

Guida di veicoli e utilizzo di macchinari

Non sono noti effetti sulla capacità di guidare veicoli o di utilizzare macchinari.

3.

Come prendere Ucedane

Prenda questo medicinale seguendo sempre esattamente le istruzioni del medico. Se ha dubbi consulti

il medico o il farmacista.

La dose giornaliera iniziale è, di norma, di 100 mg per chilogrammo di peso corporeo, fino ad un

massimo di 250 mg per chilogrammo di peso corporeo (ad esempio, se pesa 10 kg deve assumere 1 g

al giorno, ovvero 5 compresse da 200 mg). A lungo termine, la dose giornaliera varia normalmente da

10 mg a 100 mg per chilogrammo di peso corporeo. Sono disponibili altri medicinali a base di acido

carglumico se è necessario aumentare o ridurre la dose di 50 mg.

Il medico stabilirà la dose opportuna al fine di mantenere i normali livelli di ammoniaca nel sangue.

Ucedane deve essere somministrato ESCLUSIVAMENTE per bocca o tramite una sonda per la

nutrizione inserita nello stomaco (utilizzando una siringa, se necessario).

Qualora il paziente sia in coma iperammonemico, Ucedane va somministrato mediante iniezione

rapida con siringa tramite la sonda inserita e utilizzata per l’alimentazione.

Se prende più Ucedane di quanto deve

Consulti il medico o il farmacista per chiedere consiglio.

Se dimentica di prendere Ucedane

Non prenda una dose doppia per compensare la dimenticanza della dose.

Se interrompe il trattamento con Ucedane

Non smetta di prendere Ucedane senza informare il medico.

Se ha qualsiasi dubbio sull’uso di questo medicinale, si rivolga al medico o al farmacista.
