What is SIRTURO?

SIRTURO (bedaquiline) for oral administration is available as 100 mg strength tablets. Each tablet contains 120.89 mg of bedaquiline fumarate drug substance, which is equivalent to 100 mg of bedaquiline. Bedaquiline is a diarylquinoline antimycobacterial drug.

Bedaquiline fumarate is a white to almost white powder and is practically insoluble in aqueous media. The chemical name of bedaquiline fumarate is (1, 2)-1-(6-bromo-2-methoxy-3-quinolinyl)-4-(dimethylamino)-2-(1-naphthalenyl)-1-phenyl-2-butanol compound with fumaric acid (1:1). It has a molecular formula of CHBrNO∙CHO and a molecular weight of 671.58 (555.50 + 116.07). The molecular structure of bedaquiline fumarate is the following:

SIRTURO (bedaquiline) contains the following inactive ingredients: colloidal silicon dioxide, corn starch, croscarmellose sodium, hypromellose 2910 15 mPa.s, lactose monohydrate, magnesium stearate, microcrystalline cellulose, polysorbate 20, purified water (removed during processing).

How should I use SIRTURO?

SIRTURO is a diarylquinoline antimycobacterial drug indicated as part of combination therapy in the treatment of adults (18 years and older) with pulmonary multi-drug resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB). Reserve SIRTURO for use when an effective treatment regimen cannot otherwise be provided. Administer SIRTURO by directly observed therapy (DOT).

This indication is approved under accelerated approval based on time to sputum culture conversion . Continued approval for this indication may be contingent upon verification and description of clinical benefit in confirmatory trials.

Emphasize need for compliance with full course of therapy ()

Prior to administration, obtain ECG, liver enzymes and electrolytes. Obtain susceptibility information for the background regimen against isolate if possible. ()

Only use SIRTURO in combination with at least 3 other drugs to which the patient's MDR-TB isolate has been shown to be susceptible . If testing results are unavailable, may initiate SIRTURO in combination with at least 4 other drugs to which patient's MDR-TB isolate is likely to be susceptible ()

Recommended dosage: 400 mg once daily for 2 weeks followed by 200 mg 3 times per week (with at least 48 hours between doses) for 22 weeks ()

Swallow SIRTURO tablets whole with water and take with food. ()

None.


What might happen if I take too much SIRTURO?

There is no experience with the treatment of acute overdose with SIRTURO. Take general measures to support basic vital functions including monitoring of vital signs and ECG (QT interval) in case of deliberate or accidental overdose. Removal of unabsorbed bedaquiline may be achieved by the administration of activated charcoal. Since bedaquiline is highly protein-bound, dialysis is not likely to significantly remove bedaquiline from plasma.

An increased risk of death was seen in the SIRTURO treatment group (9/79, 11.4%) compared to the placebo treatment group (2/81, 2.5%) in one placebo-controlled trial (based on the 120-week visit window). One death occurred during the 24 weeks of administration of SIRTURO. The imbalance in deaths is unexplained. No discernible pattern between death and sputum culture conversion, relapse, sensitivity to other drugs used to treat tuberculosis, HIV status, or severity of disease could be observed. Only use SIRTURO when an effective treatment regimen cannot otherwise be provided .
