Viaskin Peanut previously received Breakthrough and Fast Track Designation from the FDA in 2015 and 2012, respectively. The BLA for Viaskin Peanut is supported by a global development program comprised of seven clinical trials. Data from Phase III studies, PEPITES and REALISE, which studied patients four to 11 years of age for 12 months, as well as supportive long-term data from the Company’s open-label Phase II program, were included in this submission.
