Full Prescribing Info
Use In Pregnancy & Lactation
Pregnancy: Risk Summary: EVENITY is not indicated for use in women of reproductive potential. In animal reproduction studies, weekly administration of romosozumab to pregnant rats during the period of organogenesis at exposures greater than 31 times the clinical exposure produced skeletal abnormalities in the offspring. Administration of romosozumab to rats prior to mating and through to the end of lactation produced minimal to slight decreases in femoral bone mineral density and/or cortical circumferences in the offspring at 1.4 to 54 times the expected exposure in humans [see Data as follows].
Data: Animal Data: Reproductive and developmental effects of romosozumab were assessed in the rat in a preliminary and definitive embryo-foetal development study, a combined fertility and embryo-development study, and a pre- and postnatal development study.
Skeletal malformations including syndactyly and polydactyly occurred in 1 out of 75 litters across all rat reproductive toxicity studies, in the litter of a dam given weekly subcutaneous romosozumab doses of 300 mg/kg (equivalent to at least 31 times the clinical exposure observed in humans following a monthly subcutaneous dose of 210 mg, based on area under the concentration-time curve [AUC] comparison).
In the offspring of female rats given weekly romosozumab doses from 6 weeks before cohabitation through mating and lactation, femoral periosteal and endocortical circumferences were slightly decreased at 10, 60, and 300 mg/kg (equivalent to 1.4, 18, and 54 times the clinical exposure following a monthly subcutaneous dose of 210 mg, based on AUC comparison). Cortical thickness was increased at 300 mg/kg (equivalent to 54 times expected clinical exposure). Femoral metaphyseal bone mineral density was slightly decreased at 60 and 300 mg/kg (equivalent to 18 and 54 times expected clinical exposure).
Lactation: Risk Summary: EVENITY is not indicated for use in women of reproductive potential. In animal studies where pregnant rats were given weekly doses of romosozumab from 6 weeks before cohabitation through mating and lactation at 10, 60, or 300 mg/kg (equivalent to 1.4, 18 or 54 times the clinical exposure following a monthly subcutaneous dose of 210 mg, based on AUC comparison), romosozumab was dose-dependently present in the serum of offspring on postnatal day 21 at 0.01 to 2.4 times maternal exposure due to gestational and/or lactational exposure.
