Furthermore, alanine aminotransferase (ALT) increase, gamma-glutamyl transferase (GGT) increase and aspartate aminotransferase increase are moved from the SOC ‘Investigations’ to the newly introduced SOC ‘Hepatobiliary disorders’ with the same frequencies as before. Finally, the existing warning on respiratory reactions in section 4.4 of the SmPC has been updated in relation to ILD. The Package leaflet is updated accordingly. In addition, certain side-effects in the Package leaflet have also been moved under ‘serious side-effects’.

In section 4.4: Addition of two clinical study results in the vaccination paragraph as below;

From:

Vaccination

In a clinical study, teriflunomide-treated patients mounted appropriate immune responses to a seasonal influenza vaccination, consistent with the preservation of a response to booster vaccine. Patients reached post-vaccination antibody titres, consistent with seroprotection. No clinical data are available on the efficacy and safety of vaccinations regarding primary immune response to neopathogens. The use of live attenuated vaccines may carry a risk of infections and should, therefore, be avoided.

 

To:

Vaccination

 Two clinical studies have shown that vaccinations to inactivated neoantigen (first vaccination), or recall antigen (reexposure) were safe and effective during AUBAGIO treatment . The use of live attenuated vaccines may carry a risk of infections and should therefore be avoided.

Vaccination

In a clinical study, teriflunomide-treated patients mounted appropriate immune responses to a seasonal influenza vaccination, consistent with the preservation of a response to booster vaccine. Patients reached post-vaccination antibody titres, consistent with seroprotection. No clinical data are available on the efficacy and safety of vaccinations regarding primary immune response to neopathogens. The use of live attenuated vaccines may carry a risk of infections and should, therefore, be avoided.
