The approval provides labeling for all age groups receiving non-interacting concomitant medications for this product. The supplements consisted of new pharmacokinetic and safety data from IMPAACT 2007 in neonates (birth to six weeks of age) born to mothers living with HIV-infection as well as modeling and simulation data to bridge the age groups and provide dosing for pediatric patients aged > 6 weeks to < 2 years. The approved indication is “SELZENTRY is a CCR5 co-receptor antagonist indicated in combination with other antiretroviral agents for the treatment of only CCR5-tropic HIV-1 infection in adults and pediatric patients weighing at least 2 kg.”
