Accelagen facilitates LEDAGA Approval in Australia

August 3, 2021

LEDAGA® (Chlormethine hydrochloride) – TGA APPROVAL

Accelagen, a Melbourne based Regulatory Affairs, Clinical Research and Development Organisation, are pleased to be an integral part of the approval of LEDAGA® by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) on behalf of the Australian office of Recordati Rare Diseases.

LEDAGA, indicated for the topical treatment of mycosis fungoides-type cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (MF-type CTCL) in adult patients, was recently granted regulatory approval in Australia, after earlier obtaining Orphan Drug Designation (ODD) for the same indication. The decision was based on an extensive submission of quality, nonclinical and clinical data prepared and submitted by the Accelagen regulatory team on behalf of our valued client. The regulatory submission was a culmination of the expertise and strategic input provided by Accelagen, Recordati Rare Diseases and their commercial partner.

Greg Plunkett, Founder and Managing Director of Accelagen notes that “This approval signifies an exciting development for not only Accelagen and Recordati Rare Diseases Australia, but for those patients this therapy seeks to help. On behalf of the team at Accelagen, this is another meaningful contribution to our industry and one we are proud of. I’d like to thank our partner Recordati and more importantly the team who have diligently driven this project from inception in mid-2019 through to approval. We look forward to following the progress and outcomes of this specific product and to future products with Recordati Rare Diseases.”

Tony Shelton, General Manager of Recordati Rare Diseases Australia adds “We’ve had a highly engaged and productive partnership with Accelagen to bring this product to this stage. The team at Accelagen have delivered a program that has not only been effective but efficient, and we look forward to exploring future endeavours with them.
