Sanofi and Genzyme Announces New Magnetic Resonance Imaging Data from the Lemtrada Clinical Development Program
Apr 24 15
Sanofi and its subsidiary Genzyme announced that new magnetic resonance imaging data from the Lemtrada clinical development program will be presented at the 67th American Academy of Neurology Annual Meeting. In relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis patients treated with Lemtrada in the Phase III pivotal studies, MRI effects observed in the two-year trials were maintained through two additional years in the extension study. After the initial two courses of treatment in the pivotal studies, which were given at month zero and at month 12, approximately 70% of Lemtrada patients did not receive additional Lemtrada treatment during the following three years, through month 48. The Phase III trials of Lemtrada were randomized, two-year pivotal studies comparing treatment with Lemtrada to high-dose subcutaneous interferon beta-1a in patients with RRMS who had active disease and were either new to treatment or who had an inadequate response to another therapy. Through year four, the adverse event profile of Lemtrada was consistent with that observed during the pivotal studies. The new data being presented at AAN include: The rate of brain atrophy, as measured by brain parenchymal fraction, decreased progressively over four years among Lemtrada patients in CARE-MS I. Among CARE-MS II Lemtrada patients, the rate of brain atrophy decreased progressively over three years and remained low in year four. In both studies, the median yearly brain volume loss was less than -0.20% in years three and four, which was lower than what was observed during the two-year pivotal studies. In CARE-MS I and II, treatment with Lemtrada significantly reduced the risk of developing new lesions compared to interferon beta-1a. In the extension study, most of the Lemtrada-treated patients from CARE-MS I and II were free of new lesions and MRI activity in years three and four. Brain atrophy is a measure of the most destructive pathological processes that occur in MS. 1 It is seen from the earliest stages of disease and may lead to irreversible neurological and cognitive impairment. Given its association with disability, control or prevention of brain atrophy is an important target for MS treatment. In addition, MRI measures including lesion activity are considered useful tools when evaluating the effect of MS therapies, and lesion activity is among several prognostic factors for unfavorable clinical outcomes.
Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Therapeutics Announces $14 Million Research Expansion with Genzyme
Apr 16 15
Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Therapeutics Inc. has announced a $14 million expansion of its research agreement with Genzyme to promote development of new treatments for people with the most common CF mutation, F508del. The agreement will support research and development programs aimed at identifying compounds, known as correctors, that could potentially fix the defective CFTR protein in people with CF. The F508del mutation causes a folding problem in the defective protein that disrupts its movement to the surface of the cell, where it is needed to regulate the flow of salt and fluids in and out of the cell. Nearly 90% of people with CF have at least one copy of the F508del mutation. During the expansion phase, Genzyme will focus on further developing select compounds to advance them into CF clinical trials.
