Opsona Therapeutics Ltd. Commences Part B of Phase II Study of Blocking Toll-Like Receptor 2 in Extended Criteria Donor Renal Transplant Recipients At High Risk of Early Graft Dysfunction
Mar 2 15
Opsona Therapeutics Ltd. announced the continuation of its double-blind renal transplant study by the initiation of Part B of its adaptive phase II clinical trial in Extended Criteria Donors (ECD) renal transplant recipients at high risk of early graft dysfunction with its lead drug candidate OPN-305. Based on the completion of Part A of this double blind study, OPN-305 was well tolerated and deemed to be safe by the data and safety monitoring board across all dose groups with no evidence of increased risk of infection in these highly immuno-suppressed patients. The company is proceeding with Part B in a modified patient population evaluating ECD-only recipients. ECD kidneys make up the large pool of the cadaveric donor population. Currently up to 45% of ECD kidneys are discarded resulting in a significant deficit in supply versus demand. OPN-305 has the opportunity to turn borderline non-transplantable organs into viable kidneys and functioning grafts resulting in fewer ECD discards, driving an overall increase in the number of deceased donor transplants.
