This evaluation was facilitated through Project Orbis, an initiative of the United States (US) Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Oncology Center of Excellence (OCE). Under this project, the FDA and the TGA collaboratively reviewed the application. This innovative evaluation process provided a framework for process alignment and management of evaluation issues in real-time across jurisdictions.
Each regulator agency maintained its regulatory process to make independent decisions about the approval (market authorisation).

The use of any medicine during pregnancy requires careful consideration of both risks and benefits by the treating health professional. This must not be used as the sole basis of decision making in the use of medicines during pregnancy. The TGA does not provide advice on the use of medicines in pregnancy for specific cases. More information is available from obstetric drug information services in your State or Territory.
Padcev (enfortumab vedotin) was approved for the following therapeutic use:
Padcev as monotherapy is indicated for the treatment of adult patients with locally advanced or metastatic urothelial cancer who have previously received a platinum-containing chemotherapy and a programmed death receptor-1 or programmed death-ligand-1 inhibitor.
- Padcev (enfortumab) is to be included in the Black Triangle Scheme. The Product Information (PI) and Consumer Medicines Information (CMI) for Padcev must include the black triangle symbol and mandatory accompanying text for five years, which starts from the date that the sponsor notifies the TGA of supply of the product.
- The Padcev European Union (EU)-risk management plan (RMP) (version 1.0, dated March 2022; data lock point 15 September 2020), with Australia specific annex (version 5.0, dated 13 June 2022), included with Submission PM-2021-00635-1-4, and any subsequent revisions, as agreed with the TGA will be implemented in Australia.
An obligatory component of risk management plans is routine pharmacovigilance. Routine pharmacovigilance includes the submission of periodic safety update reports (PSURs).
Reports are to be provided in line with the current published list of EU reference dates and frequency of submission of PSURs until the period covered by such reports is not less than three years from the date of the approval letter.
The reports are to at least meet the requirements for PSURs as described in the European Medicines Agency's guideline on Good Pharmacovigilance Practices (GVP) Module VII-periodic safety update report (revision 1), Part VII.B structures and processes. Note that submission of a PSUR does not constitute an application to vary the registration.
- For all injectable products the Product Information must be included with the product as a package insert.
