FDA approves voxelotor for sickle cell disease

Posted on November 27, 2019 at 7:01pm 0 Comments

On November 25, 2019, the Food and Drug Administration granted accelerated approval to voxelotor (Oxbryta, Global Blood Therapeutics) for adults and pediatric patients 12 years of age and older with sickle cell disease.

The primary efficacy outcome measure was Hb response rate defined as an Hb increase of >1 g/dL from baseline to week 24. The response rate for voxelotor was 51.1% (46/90) compared to 6.5% (6/92) in the placebo group (p<0.0001). Additional efficacy…

Hey Fam,

Its been a while, hope you are all well! I just wanted to share this recent successful potential future cure for those who have not heard about it yet. It was featured on CBS 60 minutes and promising as a potential cure in the future.

Hey Ade,

It’s Sujata here...long time since been on here... was wondering do you know about the lates research currently at NIH for a pill medication for adults with SCA already in phase 2 one last phase and it’s ready for FDA approval that any hematologist can prescribe and the patient can pick it up! It might be doctor has to apply to a specialty Pharmacy. however for those adult like me living with SCA and no chance at stem cell transplant due to no blood relatives (since I’m adopted) also I’m not a candidate for a liver transplant even though my liver is at 1/2 function from Cirrosis (as you know iron-overload)!

This new pill will be able to change the morphology of all the sickle cells! It’s like cancer but only positive it targets the red cells in the bone marrow level that are predestined to be sickle and changes them before sent out in circulation to be come more oval like shape and size! Then the pill helps to make an over population so as to overwhelm any stragglers of sickle cells whom don’t change but the percentage is very low thacould be wrobu
Therefore these new (non sickle cells) will have not pointed parts to what I like to call ‘traffic jams’ especially around the joints, but as you know a crisis can happ anywhere at anytime even when we think we having a great day! The oval shape allows it to carry more O2 through out the system he and resolving other flowing issues such as preventing clots .

Amazing right a true miracle at least for me! And I thank God I’m was born in this generation with science and technology.

Saw your post about getting into UT grad school. Congrats! Austin has a pretty good network since the Sickle Cell Assoc of Texas Marc Thomas foundation is based there. They are a good group that I've helped out with before. I live in Houston but I'm in Austin regularly since I have family there. Best of luck with the move and if you need anything let me know.
