Relugolix and Pharmacology

Phospholipidosis (intracellular phospholipid accumulation) was observed in multiple organs and tissues (e.g., liver, pancreas, spleen, kidney, lymph nodes, lung, bone marrow, gastrointestinal tract or reproductive organs) after repeated oral administration of relugolix in rats and monkeys. In a rat 26-week toxicity study, phospholipidosis was observed at doses ≥ 100 mg/kg (approximately 18 times the human exposure at the recommended dose based on AUC). In a monkey 39-week toxicity study, this effect was observed at doses ≥ 1.5 mg/kg (approximately 0.6 times the human exposure at the recommended dose based on AUC) and demonstrated evidence of reversibility after cessation of
treatment. The significance of this finding in humans is unknown.
