Soleno Therapeutics Announces Updated Safety and Efficacy Data from Clinical Trial of DCCR for Treatment of Prader-Willi Syndrome

Soleno Therapeutics, Inc. announced that updated safety and efficacy data from the pilot clinical trial of Diazoxide Choline Controlled Release Tablet (DCCR) for the treatment of Prader-Willi syndrome (PWS) were the subject of a poster presentation at the 10th International Meeting of Pediatric Endocrinology, being held September 14-17 in Washington, D.C. The data were presented by Virginia Kimonis, M.D., Division of Genetics and Metabolism, School of Medicine, University of California, Irvine, and Principal Investigator of the trial. The purpose of the study was to assess the safety and efficacy of multiple dose levels of DCCR in subjects ages 10-22 years with genetically-confirmed PWS. The study consisted of a 10-week open-label treatment phase, during which subjects were escalated from 1.5 mg/kg to a maximum of 5.1 mg/kg of DCCR and then treated stably for the remainder of the phase. Subjects with an improvement in hyperphagia and/or an increase in resting energy expenditure during the open-label phase were classified as responders and were eligible to enter a 4-week double-blind placebo-controlled withdrawal treatment phase, in which they were randomized to DCCR or placebo. Thirteen subjects were enrolled; 11 subjects completed the open-label phase, were classified as responders and randomized into the double-blind phase. Key efficacy results included a significant improvement from baseline in hyperphagia (mean baseline score = 15 out of possible scores of 0-34) starting within two weeks of DCCR treatment. As previously reported, a highly statistically significant reduction (-4.32, p=0.0055) was seen in hyperphagia from baseline to the end of the open-label treatment phase. In addition, greater improvement in hyperphagia from baseline was observed in those subjects with moderate to severe hyperphagia who received DCCR doses ≥ 4.2 mg/kg (the planned population and target dose for the Phase III study) with a reduction of -7.83 (n =3). A significant improvement in the number of subjects reporting one or more aggressive and destructive behaviors was seen (p=0.006). During the open-label treatment phase, a mean decrease in body fat mass (p=0.02) and increases in lean body mass (p=0.003) and lean body mass /fat mass ratio (p=0.004) were seen. These changes were associated with a statistically significant reduction in waist circumference (-3.45 cm, p=0.006), consistent with the loss of visceral fat. Leptin levels were significantly decreased (p=0.007) from baseline, while ghrelin levels remained unchanged (p=0.93). The safety profile of DCCR in this study was consistent with the known profile of diazoxide. The most commonly reported treatment-emergent adverse events observed are also common in PWS patients, including glycemic impacts, peripheral edema, upper respiratory tract infections, constipation, and somnolence. Insulin sensitivity as measured by reduction HOMA-IR was improved. DCCR has Orphan Designation for the treatment of PWS in the U.S.
