Advicenne announces positive opinion from the French Transparency Commission (HAS) for its drug SibnayalTM in dRTA

  • SibnayalTM eligible for reimbursement by the French public health insurance system
  • ASMR IV: Recognition of the contribution of SibnayalTM in the treatment of dRTA

Paris, France, 20 December 2021 7:00 am CEST Advicenne (Euronext: ADVIC), a specialty pharmaceutical company dedicated to developing and commercializing innovative treatments for those suffering from rare renal diseases, announces is has received a positive opinion from the French Transparency Commission (HAS) with its lead asset, SibnayalTM eligible for reimbursement with a Moderate Level SMR (Medical Rendered Service) and a Level IV ASMR (Medical Rendered Service Improvement), in the treatment of distal Renal Tubular Acidosis (dRTA) in adults, adolescents and children over the age of 1.

This decision makes SibnayalTM the only specialty pharmaceutical product reimbursed in the treatment of dRTA in France, which will significantly ease access to treatment of the disease for both patients and their doctors. The French Transparency Commission (HAS – Haute Autorité de Santé), in its opinion, acknowledges the contribution of the twice-daily dosing formulation of SibnayalTM which significantly improves the quality of life of patients as well as compliance to long-term treatment plans. These factors contribute to the continuous improvement of disease indicators, particularly bone mineral density, as shown by the clinical development of SibnayalTM over a period of at least 4 years.

Didier Laurens, Chief Executive Officer of Advicenne, comments: “We are particularly pleased and proud of the opinion delivered by the French Transparency Commission. The reimbursement of SibnayalTM is a major step forward for patients and their physicians. This opinion also recognizes the benefit of a form of SibnayalTM that makes it easier to administer with a positive impact on the long-term disease indicators. This notice is an additional step towards the commercialization of SibnayalTM, following the recent commercial announcements.”

Distal renal tubular acidosis (dTRA) is an orphan disease characterized by the inabilitý of the kidney to excrete acids from metabolism. The excess of acids in the blood leads to pH imbalance (acidosis) and multiple other complications: growth retardation, bone development and rickets, metabolic abnormalities (decreased blood potassium, elevated urinary calcium), kidney stone formation, calcium deposits in the kidney (calcinosis), renal failure. Whether genetic or acquired, as a consequence of an immunological disease, ATRd is a chronic pathology that affects approximately 30,000 patients in Europe and 20,000 in the United States.
