Recent developments

In March 2018, the EMA (European Medicines Agency) accepted BioMarin Pharmaceutical’s (BMRN) marketing authorization application for pegvaliase. Pegvaliase is indicated for the treatment of adults with phenylketonuria who have shown inadequate blood phenylalanine control despite previous therapies. Previously, the FDA accepted BioMarin’s biologics license application for pegvaliase, granting it priority review status. The FDA has set its PDUFA (Prescription Drug User Fee Act) action date for May 25, 2018.

The FDA’s and EMA’s approval of pegvaliase will allow BioMarin to commercialize the drug in US and European markets. The approval and launch of pegvaliase are expected to boost BioMarin’s revenue.
