Section 4.6:

 

The paragraphs on ‘Pregnancy, Lactation and Fertility’ were replaced, as follows:

 

Pregnancy

 

There are limited amount of data from the use of MOVICOL in pregnant women.  Studies in animals have shown indirect reproductive toxicity (see section 5.3). Clinically, no effects during pregnancy are anticipated, since systemic exposure to macrogol 3350 is negligible.

 

MOVICOL can be used during pregnancy.

 

 

Breastfeeding

No effects on the breastfed newborn/infant are anticipated since the systemic exposure of the breast-feeding woman to Macrogol 3350 is negligible.

 

MOVICOL can be used during breast-feeding.

 

 

Fertility

There are no data on the effects of MOVICOL on fertility in humans. There were no effects on fertility in studies in male and female rats (see section 5.3).

 

Previous information in section 4.6:

Pregnancy

There is no experience of the use of MOVICOL Liquid Orange flavour during pregnancy. Animal studies are insufficient with respect to reproductive toxicity (see section 5.3).

MOVICOL Liquid Orange flavour should not be used during pregnancy unless clearly necessary.

 

Lactation

It is unknown whether MOVICOL Liquid Orange flavour is excreted in human milk.

A risk to the suckling child cannot be excluded.

A decision must be made whether to discontinue breast-feeding or to discontinue/abstain from MOVICOL Liquid Orange flavour therapy taking into account the benefit of breast feeding for the child and the benefit of therapy for the woman.

 

Fertility

There are no data on the effects of MOVICOL on fertility.

 

Section 5.3

 

The 2 paragraph was added and 3 paragraph was replaced (as highlighted in red), as follows:

 

‘Preclinical studies provide evidence that macrogol 3350 has no significant systemic toxicity potential, based on conventional studies of pharmacology, repeated dose toxicity and genotoxicity. 

 

There were no direct embryotoxic or teratogenic effects in rats even at maternally toxic levels that are a multiple of 66 x the maximum recommended dose in humans for chronic constipation and 25 x for faecal impaction. Indirect embryofetal effects, including reduction in fetal and placental weights, reduced fetal viability, increased limb and paw hyperflexion and abortions, were noted in the rabbit at a maternally toxic dose that was 3.3 x the maximum recommended dose in humans for treatment of chronic constipation and 1.3 x for faecal impaction. Rabbits are a sensitive animal test species to the effects of GI-acting substances and the studies were conducted under exaggerated conditions with high dose volumes administered, which are not clinically relevant. The findings may have been a consequence of an indirect effect of MOVICOL related to poor maternal condition as the result of an exaggerated pharmacodynamic response in the rabbit. There was no indication of a teratogenic effect.

 

There are long-term animal toxicity and carcinogenicity studies involving macrogol 3350. Results from these and other toxicity studies using high levels of orally administered high molecular weight macrogols provide evidence of safety at the recommended therapeutic dose.’

 

 

Previous information in section 5.3:

‘Preclinical studies provide evidence that macrogol 3350 has no significant systemic toxicity potential,  although no tests of its effects on reproduction or genotoxicity have been conducted.

 

There are no long-term animal toxicity or carcinogenicity studies involving macrogol 3350, although there are toxicity studies using high levels of orally administered high molecular weight macrogols that provide evidence of safety at the recommended therapeutic dose.’
