ELK GROVE VILLAGE, Ill., Nov. 20, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Orsini Specialty Pharmacy has been selected by Takeda Pharmaceuticals as the exclusive specialty pharmacy partner for ADZYNMA (ADAMTS13, recombinant-krhn), approved by the FDA on November 9, 2023, for prophylactic or on demand enzyme replacement therapy (ERT) in adult and pediatric patients with congenital thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (cTTP). ADZYNMA is the first and only FDA-approved recombinant ADAMTS13 (rADAMTS13) enzyme replacement therapy for people with cTTP designed to address the root cause of the condition, an ADAMTS13 enzyme deficiency. ADZYNMA is expected to be commercially available in December 2023. Read the Full Prescribing Information here.
cTTP is an ultra-rare, chronic and debilitating blood clotting disorder caused by a deficiency in the ADAMTS13 enzyme associated with life-threatening acute events and debilitating chronic symptoms or manifestations. When left untreated, acute TTP events have a mortality rate of >90%.
"Orsini is excited to continue our long-standing partnership with Takeda in addressing unmet medical needs for patients," said Darin DeCarlo, Orsini's Chief Growth Officer. "We're proud to offer hope to those living with cTTP, who have previously had no treatment options specifically indicated for them."
