Why Choose NITYR for Your Patients?

NITYR (nitisinone) Tablets are a new option for treatment of Hereditary Tyrosinemia Type 1 (HT-1).

Your patients living with HT-1 may be unaware of this new option for nitisinone (NTBC) – the first in many years – or may have a number of questions regarding the difference compared to the current nitisinone on the market.

NITYR Tablets:

  • Are bioequivalent to Orfadin*1 capsules
  • The tablet for all life stages
  • Are very small2 (baby asprin sized) and tasteless
  • Can be stored at room temperature, do not require refrigeration and have a shelf life of 36 months (3 years)3
  • Can be taken with or without food
  • Have a COVID-19 Response Wellbeing Program4 and a
    30-Day Free NITYR Program5 available
  • Have a price advantage compared to traditional nitisinone
  • Come with a $0 co-pay for eligible commercially insured patients6

Bioequivalence

NITYR is bioequivalent to Orfadin capsules, which means that it has the same efficacy, safety and side effects, and may offer patients and their families greater convenience – see graph below.

Improved stability

NITYR Tablets were designed to be more convenient for your patients because they can be stored at room temperature between 68° and 77°F (20° to 25°C), allowing for excursions between 59° and 86°F (15° and 30°C), with less likelihood of the formation of potentially toxic impurities.

As demonstrated in the graph below, even in accelerated conditions (40°C; 104°F and 75% RH) and over 6 months, NITYR does not surpass the impurity limits established by the FDA.

NITYR does not require refrigeration. They have a shelf life of 36 months (3 years). NITYR tablets are also very small (baby aspirin sized), can be taken with or without food and may have a price advantage compared to the traditional nitisinone on the market (including a $0 co-pay 6 for eligible commercially insured patients).
