as a global drug discovery center aiming for connecting human and human, and data, and the world

eisai co., ltd. (headquarters: tokyo, ceo: haruo naito, “eisai”) today announced the completion of a major renovation of its tsukuba research laboratories (ibaraki, japan), which is a part of strategic investment to execute eisai’s medium-term business plan “eway future & beyond”.

 

eisai implements research and development activities under the dhbl (deep human biology learning) drug discovery and development system in our efforts to create new drugs based on innovative and efficient next-generation drug discovery concepts. for this purpose, we recognize diseases as disease continuum to redefine their concepts through comprehensive analysis on genomic, pathophysiological and clinical information associated with underlying causes of disease in order to enhance our understanding on human biology by acquiring data leading to next drug discovery with information, such as biomarkers and imaging data from patients on our drugs. tsukuba research laboratories is positioned as a core facility in the dhbl drug discovery and development system. this renovation seeks to accelerate knowledge circulation by connecting each researcher with patients, other members within the laboratories, other research sites across the world, and external researchers based on our key concept “human connected laboratories: laboratories connecting human and human, and data, and the world.” total investment on this major renovation was 8.5 billion yen.

 

main idea of this major renovation

[designs to enhancing connection with patients]

in the eisai group, all employees around the world use 1% of their total business hours to interact with patients (socialization) to understand their thoughts and feelings. accordingly, we have been working on the initiatives (hhc activities) to lead value creation for patients. to enhance the opportunities for closer interaction with people outside the company, such as further socialization with patients, at tsukuba research laboratories, a traffic line from the front gate through the main building lobby to the courtyard is placed as interactive zone to enable various communications.

 

[realizing connections between researchers and data driven drug discovery]

in favor of generating natural communication between researchers across different therapeutic areas on a daily basis, workspaces for biology researchers and data scientists are allocated on the same floor, and likewise workspaces for chemistry and pharmacokinetics/analytical researchers are placed on nearby floors to foster new connections and knowledge exchange. further creative solutions are implemented in laboratories, including collective arrangement of structural openings and devices. these designs facilitate data driven drug discovery through knowledge exchange.

 

[knowledge circulation generated from links between buildings]

corridors linking multiple buildings embodying the concept of knowledge circulation are placed. a traffic line named “knowledge corridor” enables people to move all around the laboratory, with which research efficiency and convenience are considerably improved.

 

[meeting rooms value connection with the world]

each meeting room is equipped with an it environment that allows smooth communication with overseas offices, as well as systems able to deal with hybrid meeting which dominantly accepted in recent days.

 

eisai will accelerate the drug discovery activities under the dhbl drug discovery system in order to fulfill unmet medical needs, and in our efforts to further contribute to improve the benefits of patients and the people in the daily living domain.

confirmatory phase 3 clarity ad data to be evaluated by fda in determining whether to convert accelerated approval of leqembi to a traditional approval

priority review accelerates fda review time with a prescription drug user fee act (pdufa) target action on july 6, 2023

 

tokyo and cambridge, mass., march 6, 2023 – eisai co., ltd. (headquarters: tokyo, ceo: haruo naito, “eisai”) and biogen inc. (nasdaq: biib, corporate headquarters: cambridge, massachusetts, ceo: christopher a. viehbacher, “biogen”) announced today that the u.s. food and drug administration (fda) has accepted eisai’s supplemental biologics license application (sbla) for leqembi™ (lecanemab-irmb) 100 mg/ml injection for intravenous use, supporting the conversion of the accelerated approval of leqembi to a traditional approval. the leqembi application has been granted priority review, with a prescription drug user fee act (pdufa) action date of july 6, 2023. the fda is currently planning to hold an advisory committee to discuss this application but has not yet publicly announced the date of the meeting.

leqembi is a humanized immunoglobulin gamma 1 (igg1) monoclonal antibody directed against aggregated soluble (protofibrils*) and insoluble forms of amyloid beta (aβ), approved under the accelerated approval pathway for the treatment of alzheimer’s disease (ad) on january 6, 2023. treatment with leqembi should only be initiated in patients with the mild cognitive impairment or mild dementia stage of disease and confirmed presence of aβ pathology. on the same day that leqembi received its accelerated approval, eisai submitted the sbla to the fda for approval under the traditional pathway.

the sbla is based on the findings from eisai’s recently published large, global confirmatory phase 3 clinical trial, clarity ad. leqembi met the primary endpoint and all key secondary endpoints with highly statistically significant results. in november 2022, results of the clarity ad study were presented at the clinical trials on alzheimer’s disease (ctad) conference and simultaneously published in the peer-reviewed medical journal, the new england journal of medicine.

leqembi was approved under accelerated approval in the u.s. and  was launched in the u.s. on january 18, 2023. the accelerated approval was based on phase 2 data that demonstrated that leqembi reduced the accumulation of aβ plaque in the brain, a defining feature of ad, and its continued approval may be contingent upon verification of leqembi’s clinical benefit in a confirmatory trial. the fda has determined that the results of clarity ad can serve as the confirmatory study to verify the clinical benefit of lecanemab.

eisai serves as the lead of leqembi development and regulatory submissions globally with both eisai and biogen co-commercializing and co-promoting the product and eisai having final decision-making authority.

tokyo and cambridge, mass., february 28, 2023 – eisai co., ltd. (headquarters: tokyo, ceo: haruo naito, “eisai”) and biogen inc. (nasdaq: biib, corporate headquarters: cambridge, massachusetts, ceo: christopher a. viehbacher, “biogen”) announced today that the biologics license application (bla) for lecanemab (brand name in the u.s.: leqembi™), an investigational anti-amyloid beta (aβ) protofibril antibody, has been designated for priority review by the national medical products administration (nmpa) in china. the priority review and approval procedure was implemented by the nmpa with the aim of accelerating research, development and launch of new medicines that have significant clinical value. under this procedure, the assessment period is expected to be shortened.

in china, eisai initiated submission of data for the bla to the nmpa in december 2022. eisai initially submitted a package that includes data from the phase ii clinical trial (study 201) and the top-line data of the large global phase iii clarity ad study in mild cognitive impairment (mci) due to alzheimer’s disease (ad) and mild ad (collectively known as early ad) with confirmed aβ accumulation in the brain. eisai will submit additional data including full data of the clarity ad study, as directed by the nmpa.

lecanemab selectively binds and eliminates soluble, toxic aβ aggregates (protofibrils) that are thought to contribute to the neurotoxicity in ad. as such, lecanemab may have the potential to have an effect on disease pathology and to slow down the progression of the disease. the clarity ad study of lecanemab met its primary endpoint and all key secondary endpoints with highly statistically significant results. in november 2022, the results of the clarity ad study were presented at the 2022 clinical trials on alzheimer’s disease (ctad) conference, and simultaneously published in the new england journal of medicine, a peer-reviewed medical journal.

in the u.s., lecanemab was granted accelerated approval by the u.s. food and drug administration (fda) on january 6, 2023. on the same day, eisai submitted a supplemental biologics license application (sbla) to the fda for approval under the traditional pathway. in europe, eisai submitted a marketing authorization application (maa) to the european medicines agency (ema) on january 9, 2023,  which was accepted on january 26, 2023. in japan, eisai submitted a marketing authorization application to the pharmaceuticals and medical devices agency (pmda) on january 16, 2023, and  priority review was designated by the ministry of health, labour and welfare (mhlw)  on january 26, 2023.
