SIDE EFFECTS

Clinical Trials Experience

Because clinical trials are conducted under widely varying conditions, adverse reaction rates observed in the clinical trials of a drug cannot be directly compared to rates in the clinical trials of another drug and may not reflect the rates observed in clinical practice.

The data described below reflect exposure to Picato® gel in 499 subjects with actinic keratosis, including 274 subjects exposed to Picato® gel field treatment (skin area of 25 cm² in the face or scalp regions) at a concentration of 0.015% once daily for 3 consecutive days, and 225 subjects exposed to Picato® gel field treatment (skin area of 25 cm² in the trunk or extremities regions) at a concentration of 0.05% once daily for 2 consecutive days.

Local skin reactions, including erythema, flaking/scaling, crusting, swelling, vesiculation/pustulation, and erosion/ulceration were assessed within the selected treatment area and graded by the investigator on a scale of 0 to 4. A grade of 0 represented no reaction present in the treated area, and a grade of 4 indicated a marked and severe skin reaction that extended beyond the treated area.

WARNINGS

Included as part of the PRECAUTIONS section.

PRECAUTIONS

Eye Exposure

Eye disorders, including severe eye pain, eyelid edema, eyelid ptosis, periorbital edema can occur after exposure [see ADVERSE REACTIONS]. Patients should wash hands well after applying Picato® gel, and avoid transfer of the drug to the periocular area during and after application [see PATIENT INFORMATION]. If accidental exposure occurs, the area should be flushed with water and the patient should seek medical care as soon as possible [see ADVERSE REACTIONS].

Local Skin Reactions

Severe skin reactions in the treated area, including erythema, crusting, swelling, vesiculation/postulation, and erosion/ulceration, can occur after topical application of Picato® gel [see ADVERSE REACTIONS]. Administration of Picato® gel is not recommended until the skin is healed from any previous drug or surgical treatment.

Patient Counseling Information

“See FDA-approved patient labeling (Patient Information and Instructions for Use)”

Picato® gel should be used as directed by a physician.

Picato® gel is for external use only. Advise patients to avoid contact with the eyes. Inform patients that treatment with Picato® gel may lead to local skin reactions [see WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS].

Patients should avoid inadvertent transfer of Picato® gel to other areas, or to another person.

Instruct patients to:

  • allow the treated area to dry for 15 minutes after application.
  • avoid washing and touching the treated area, or participating in activities that cause excessive sweating, for 6 hours after treatment. Following this time, patients may wash the area with a mild soap.
  • keep out of the reach of children.

Nonclinical Toxicology

Carcinogenesis, Mutagenesis, Impairment of Fertility

Long-term animal studies have not been performed to evaluate the carcinogenic potential of Picato® gel or ingenol mebutate. The effects of ingenol mebutate on fertility have not been evaluated.

Ingenol mebutate was negative in the Ames test, in vitro mouse lymphoma assay, and in vivo rat micronucleus test, but positive in the Syrian hamster embryo (SHE) cell transformation assay.

Use In Specific Populations

Pregnancy

Pregnancy Category C

There are no adequate and well-controlled studies of Picato® gel in pregnant women. Picato® gel should be used during pregnancy only if the potential benefit justifies the potential risk to the fetus.

Systemic embryofetal development studies were conducted with ingenol mebutate in rats and rabbits. Intravenous doses of 1.5, 3, and 5 μg/kg/day (9, 18, and 30 μg/m² /day) ingenol mebutate were administered during the period of organogenesis (gestational days 6 – 16) to pregnant female rats. No treatment related effects on embryofetal toxicity or teratogenicity were noted at doses up to 5 μg/kg/day (30 μg/m²/day). Intravenous doses of 1, 2, and 4 μg/kg/day (12, 24, and 48 μg/m²/day) ingenol mebutate were administered during the period of organogenesis (gestational days 6 – 18) to pregnant female rabbits. An increase in embryo-fetal mortality was noted at 4 μg/kg/day (48 μg/m²/day). An increased incidence of fetal visceral and skeletal variations was noted in all three ingenol mebutate dose groups. The clinical relevance of these findings is unclear since systemic exposure of ingenol mebutate was not detected in subjects with actinic keratosis treated with Picato® gel, 0.05% applied to a 100 cm² treatment area [see CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY].

Pediatric Use

Actinic keratosis is not a condition generally seen within the pediatric population.

The safety and effectiveness of Picato® gel for actinic keratosis in patients less than 18 years of age have not been established.

Geriatric Use

Of the 1165 subjects treated with Picato® gel in the clinical trials, 56% were 65 years and older and, 21% were 75 years and older. No overall differences in safety or effectiveness were observed between these subjects and younger subjects.

CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY

Mechanism of Action

The mechanism of action by which Picato® gel induces cell death in treating AK lesions is unknown.

Pharmacodynamics

The pharmacodynamics of Picato® gel is unknown.

Pharmacokinetics

Absorption

The systemic exposure to Picato® gel, 0.05% was assessed in two studies in a total of 16 subjects with AK, following application of approximately 1 g of Picato® gel, 0.05% to an area of 100 cm² of the dorsal forearm once daily for two consecutive days. In these studies, the blood levels of ingenol mebutate and two of its metabolites (acyl isomers of ingenol mebutate) were measured. Blood levels of ingenol mebutate and the two metabolites were below the lower limit of quantification (0.1 ng/mL) in all the blood samples of the subjects evaluated.

Drug Interactions

In vitro studies demonstrated that [3H]-ingenol mebutate undergoes extensive metabolism in human hepatocytes.

In vitro studies to assess the potential of ingenol mebutate to inhibit or induce human cytochrome P450 (CYP) enzymes demonstrated that ingenol mebutate does not inhibit CYP 1A2, 2A6, 2B6, 2C8, 2C9, 2C19, 2D6, 2E1, and 3A4 or induce CYP 1A2, 2C9, and 3A4. The estimated expected systemic exposure ( < 0.1 ng/mL) following topical application of Picato® gel, 0.05% to AK subjects in the pharmacokinetic studies described above is negligible compared to the concentrations of ingenol mebutate evaluated in the in vitro studies.

Clinical Studies

Actinic Keratosis of the Face and Scalp

In two double-blind, vehicle-controlled, clinical trials, 547 adult subjects with AK on the face or scalp were randomized to treatment with either Picato® gel, 0.015% or vehicle gel for 3 consecutive days, followed by an 8 week follow-up period. The studies enrolled subjects with 4 to 8 clinically typical, visible, discrete AK lesions within a 25 cm² contiguous treatment area. Hypertrophic and hyperkeratotic lesions were excluded from treatment. On each scheduled dosing day, the study gel was applied to the entire treatment area. A total of 536 subjects (98%) completed these studies. Study subjects ranged from 34 to 89 years of age (mean 64 years) and 94% had Fitzpatrick skin type I, II, or III. Approximately 85% of subjects were male, and all Picato® -treated subjects were Caucasian.

Efficacy was assessed at Day 57. Complete clearance rate was defined as the proportion of subjects with no (zero) clinically visible AK lesions in the treatment area. Partial clearance rate was defined as the proportion of subjects with 75% or greater reduction in the number of AK lesions at baseline in the selected treatment area.

Subjects who achieved complete clearance at Day 57 in Study 1 and Study 2 entered a 12-month follow-up period. Based on 108 Picato® gel-treated subjects who achieved complete clearance in Study 1 and Study 2, the recurrence rate at 12 months was 54% where recurrence was defined as the percentage of subjects with any identified AK lesion in the previously treated area who achieved complete clearance at Day 57.

Actinic Keratosis of the Trunk and Extremities

In two double-blind, vehicle-controlled clinical trials, 458 adult subjects with AK on the trunk or extremities were randomized to treatment with either Picato® gel, 0.05% or vehicle gel for 2 consecutive days, followed by an 8 week follow-up period. The studies enrolled subjects with 4 to 8 clinically typical, visible, discrete AK lesions within a 25 cm² contiguous treatment area. Hypertrophic and hyperkeratotic lesions were excluded from treatment. On each scheduled dosing day, the study gel was applied to the entire treatment area. A total of 447 subjects (98%) completed these studies. Study subjects ranged from 34 to 89 years of age (mean 66 years) and 94% had Fitzpatrick skin type I, II, or III. Approximately 62% of subjects were male, and all Picato® -treated subjects were Caucasian.

Efficacy was assessed at Day 57. Complete clearance rate was defined as the proportion of subjects with no (zero) clinically visible AK lesions in the treatment area. The partial clearance rate was defined as the proportion of subjects with 75% or greater reduction in the number of AK lesions at baseline in the selected treatment area.
