NPS on new drugs

Pharmacy Daily - - FRONT PAGE -

THE lat­est edi­tion of Aus­tralian Pre­scriber from NPS MedicineWise high­lights three new drugs on the Aus­tralian mar­ket.

Br­ex­pipra­zole (Rex­ulti from Lund­beck) is a new an­tipsy­chotic for schizophre­nia, is struc­turally sim­i­lar to arip­ipra­zole and has a sim­i­lar mech­a­nism of ac­tion.

So­mavert (pegvi­so­mant) by Pfizer binds to growth hor­mone re­cep­tors and is in­di­cated for acromegaly as a pow­der for re­con­sti­tu­tion.

Thirdly, NPS writes up Gilead’s Epculsa (so­fos­bu­vir-vel­patasvir fixed com­bi­na­tion) for hep­ati­tis C.
