Alba Therapeutics Corporation announced the positive results of their Phase IIb trial evaluating its investigational product, larazotide acetate, a tight junction regulator, intended for the treatment of patients with celiac disease (CeD). The study met its primary endpoint and, based on these results, Alba has initiated planning for Phase III clinical trials for the definitive assessment of the oral peptide's efficacy and safety. The final data will be submitted for publication in the near future. The double-blind, placebo-controlled study evaluated the efficacy and safety of larazotide acetate in the treatment of 342 patients with CeD who had persistent symptoms despite being on a gluten-free diet. This is the seventh study in a broad clinical trial program for larazotide acetate that, to date, has included 828 patients with CeD. Larazotide acetate has been granted 'Fast Track' designation from the FDA.
