Safety
the WINLEVI way

Safety profile in 2 phase 3 pivotal studies over 12 weeks1

Hypothetical Female WINLEVI® (clascoterone cream 1%) Patient

No systemic side effects related to androgen inhibition were observed in 2 phase 3 pivotal trials.2

In a maximum-use PK study in 42 patients, hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis suppression was observed in 5% (1/20) of adults (6 g BID) and 9% (2/22) of adolescents (4 g BID) at Day 14. All subjects returned to normal HPA axis function at follow-up 4 weeks after stopping treatment.3

Conditions which augment systemic absorption include use over large surface areas, prolonged use, and the use of occlusive dressings. Attempt to withdraw use if HPA axis suppression develops.1

Hypothetical Male WINLEVI® (clascoterone cream 1%) Patient

The most frequent LSRs were erythema/reddening, pruritus, and scaling/dryness.1,2

Other LSRs occurring in less than 5% of patients included: edema, skin atrophy, stinging/burning, striae rubrae, and telangiectasia, which occurred in 3% of subjects treated with vehicle.1

WINLEVI is rapidly metabolized in the skin, limiting systemic absorption.4,5*

Pediatric patients may be more susceptible to systemic toxicity. Hyperkalemia: Elevated potassium levels were observed in some subjects during the clinical trials. Shifts from normal to elevated potassium levels were observed in 5% of WINLEVI-treated subjects and 4% of vehicle-treated subjects.

*The exact mechanism of WINLEVI in acne vulgaris is unknown.1

WINLEVI safety profile at 12 weeks1

Local skin reactions (LSRs) in ≥1% of patients compared to vehicle1

(LSRs) in ≥1% of Patients Compared to Vehicle Chart

Other LSRs occurring in less than 5% of patients included edema, skin atrophy, stinging/burning, striae rubrae, and telangiectasia, which occurred in a similar percentage of subjects treated with vehicle.1

aThe denominators for calculating the percentages were the 674 of 709 subjects treated with WINLEVI cream and 656 of 712 subjects treated with vehicle in these trials who had local skin reaction results reported after Day 1.1

Long-term safety profile of WINLEVI

In a phase 3, open-label, long-term, 9-month extension study6,7

  • Treatment-emergent adverse events (TEAEs) occurred in 18.1% of patients overall over 9 months, and occurred in a similar percentage of patients originally assigned WINLEVI vs vehicle6,7
    • Of patients receiving WINLEVI in the 12-week pivotal study, TEAEs occurred in 18.3% (58/317)6,7
    • Of patients receiving vehicle in 12-week pivotal study, TEAEs occurred in 17.9% (52/290)6,7
  • Most common TEAEs in the safety population included nasopharyngitis, upper respiratory tract infection, viral respiratory tract infection, sinusitis, and application-site acne6,7
  • Most common local skin reactions (LSRs) included erythema, scaling/dryness, and pruritus7
  • No systemic adverse events related to androgen inhibition or HPA axis suppression6,7

In a maximum-use PK study in 42 patients, hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis suppression was observed in 5% (1/20) of adults (6 g BID) and 9% (2/22) of adolescents (4 g BID) at Day 14. All patients returned to normal HPA axis function at follow-up 4 weeks after the end of treatment.3 Attempt to withdraw use if HPA axis suppression develops.1

LONG-TERM STUDY DESIGN: Patients who had completed one of the WINLEVI 12-week randomized, placebo-controlled phase 3 pivotal trials for facial acne were eligible to continue with WINLEVI in the open-label, single arm, long-term extension study. Study subjects (n=607) applied WINLEVI 2X daily for up to 9 months on the face, trunk, or both.6,7 Mean overall daily WINLEVI exposure: 2.3 g (range, 0.2 g to 13 g).6,7

Patients off treatment for more than 3 days were not eligible.
