Redefine your TIO treatment with CRYSVITA® (burosumab-twza)

Clinical studies have shown that CRYSVITA may help with tumor-induced osteomalacia (TIO) by:

CRYSVITA® increases phosphorus levels

Increasing and maintaining phosphorus levels in the blood

CRYSVITA® helps heal osteomalacia

Healing osteomalacia (weak or softened bones)

The benefits and risks of treatment with CRYSVITA were studied in a total of 27 adults with TIO

Study 6

  • Number of patients: 14
  • Ages: 33 to 68 years
  • Length of treatment: 144 weeks

Study 7

  • Number of patients: 13
  • Ages: 41 to 73 years
  • Length of treatment: 88 weeks

Serum phosphorus

Phosphorus is a mineral that is important for healthy bones. People with TIO have too little phosphorus, leading to weakening of their bones. In CRYSVITA clinical studies, adults with TIO had the level of phosphorus in their blood, described as “serum phosphorus,” measured at Week 24 (Studies 6 and 7), Week 88 (Study 7), and Week 144 (Study 6).

CRYSVITA increased serum phosphorus

In Study 6, 14 adults with TIO aged 33 to 68 years received CRYSVITA every 4 weeks for 144 weeks.

  • *Normal levels of serum phosphorus for this group of patients ranged from 2.5 to 4.5 milligrams/​deciliter (mg/dL). The normal range of serum phosphorus levels varies by age and sex, and ranges may vary by testing laboratory.

Both studies of adults with TIO showed that CRYSVITA increased and maintained serum phosphorus

  • Study 6, serum phosphorus increased from 1.60 mg/dL to 2.64 mg/dL at Week 24 and was sustained through Week 144 with CRYSVITA
  • Study 7, serum phosphorus increased from 1.62 mg/dL to 2.63 mg/dL at Week 24 and was sustained through Week 88 with CRYSVITA

By Week 24, 7 out of 14 patients (50%) in Study 6 and 9 out of 13 patients (69%) in Study 7 had serum phosphorus within the normal range

CRYSVITA increased serum phosphorus levels for all patients (100%) by the end of the trial period in Studies 6 and 7

Osteomalacia

Under normal conditions, minerals like phosphorus are continuously added to bones. This process, called mineralization, helps to keep bones hard. People with TIO don’t have enough phosphorus for bones to properly mineralize, which causes some parts of the bone to become “soft” and more likely to break. “Softening” and weakening of the bones is called osteomalacia.

In a study of adults with TIO aged 33 to 68 years (Study 6), small samples of bone were taken and examined for signs of healing of osteomalacia. Bone samples were taken before patients started treatment with CRYSVITA and then again after the patients were treated with CRYSVITA every 4 weeks for 48 weeks.

CRYSVITA helped heal osteomalacia

In Study 6, 14 adults with TIO aged 33 to 68 years received CRYSVITA every 4 weeks.

82% of CRYSVITA® patients showed healing of osteomalacia

In Studies 6 and 7, patients receiving CRYSVITA improved bone mineralization by 34% at Week 48. Their bone biopsies showed a reduction in osteoid volume to bone volume (OV/BV), which is a measurement of unmineralized bone.

CRYSVITA improved bone mineralization and reduced the bone damage caused by osteomalacia
