New Warnings Possible for Suprane, Colazal

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

Suprane and Colazal need more warnings regarding heart and lung problems that may occur when the drugs are used in children, according to documents posted on the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) website by agency staff. The FDA periodically reviews the safety of medicines recently approved for pediatric use, as required by the Best Pharmaceuticals for Children Act of 2002. According to the agency, outside experts on the agency’s Pediatric Advisory Committee will consider the recommend label changes for Suprane and Colazal on Tuesday.

Colazal was approved by the FDA in July 2000 for the treatment of mildly to moderately active ulcerative colitis. At approval, Colazal was the first oral new chemical entity approved in ten years and the first new therapy approved in seven years by the FDA for this indication. Colazal was one of Salix Pharmaceuticals Ltd.’s biggest selling drugs, but sales were hit hard in December because of the introduction of the introduction of generic competitors. The FDA staff has recommended that Colazal add new warnings on heart and lung risks to match those now carried by other drugs in the same class.

Suprane, an anesthetic manufactured by Baxter International, has been associated with instances of cardiac arrest when it has been used in children. According to Baxter’s website, Suprane is indicated as an inhalation agent for induction and/or maintenance of general anesthesia for inpatient and outpatient surgery. On December 15, 2006, the FDA approved an expanded indication of Suprane, allowing its use for the maintenance of anesthesia in infants and children, after induction with other agents and tracheal intubation.

According to documents posted on the FDA website, the agency has received three reports of cardiac arrest in children who were administered Suprane. All of the children did eventually recover with treatment. The FDA staff said it was possible the cases were associated with Suprane. However they also said each of the patients was being treated with other drugs that may cause cardiac arrest. Despite the uncertainty, the FDA reviewers said Suprane’s label “should be revised to include cardiac arrest.”

The label for Suprane already carries warnings about other cardiac problems including heart attacks, irregular heart beats and unstable blood pressure.
