Vaccinex, Inc. Announces the Initiation of Phase 2 Clinical Trial of its Investigational VX15/2503 Antibody in Huntington's Disease

Vaccinex, Inc. announced that it has initiated a Phase 2 clinical trial to assess the safety, tolerability and efficacy of anti-semaphorin 4D antibody VX15/2503 (VX15) in Huntington's disease (HD), a neurodegenerative genetic disorder that typically manifests in mid-adult life. This clinical trial, termed the 'SIGNAL' clinical trial, will be performed with the assistance of the Huntington Study Group and is designed to evaluate VX15 antibody in up to 84 subjects with late-prodromal or early-manifest HD. The SIGNAL trial is based on prior research of neurodegenerative disease mechanisms, where demonstrated in preclinical models that semaphorin 4D ("SEMA4D") triggers activation of both microglia and astrocytes, the innate inflammatory cells of the central nervous system. The chronic activation of microglia and astrocytes has been implicated as a potentially important disease mechanism in HD, progressive multiple sclerosis and other neurodegenerative disorders. VX15 antibody is designed to block the functional activity of SEMA4D. The SIGNAL clinical trial will build upon preclinical studies in an animal model of HD and safety data from a Phase 1 dose-escalation clinical trial of VX15 in MS patients that the company completed in November 2014.

Vaccinex, Inc. Provides an Update on its VX15/2503 Phase 1 Clinical Trial in Multiple Sclerosis Patients

Vaccinex, Inc. announced the successful completion of a multicenter phase 1, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, single ascending-dose safety and tolerability study in adult patients with Multiple Sclerosis. A total of 50 patients were enrolled in 1 of 5 cohorts to determine the safety and tolerability of VX15/2503 when administered IV in a single dose. VX15/2503 is a monoclonal antibody discovered, characterized, and successfully tested by Vaccinex in preclinical models of Multiple Sclerosis and Huntington's Disease. VX15/2503 was found to be well tolerated at dose levels of up to 20 mg/kg with no reports of treatment-related serious adverse events. No maximum tolerated dose was determined and no dose-limiting toxicities were observed. Preliminary data suggests that the half-life of a single dose of antibody is 21 to 23 days at the 20 mg/kg dose level, and that saturation of the SEMA4D target receptor lasted for approximately 155 days. A phase 2 clinical trial of the VX15/2503 antibody in Huntington's Disease is planned to begin in the first half of 2015.
