National Institutes of Health Partners with Vtesse to Develop Treatments for an Often-Fatal Group of Disorders Known as Lysosomal Storage Diseases

The National Institutes of Health in Bethesda has partnered with Vtesse Inc. to develop treatments for an often-fatal group of disorders known as lysosomal storage diseases. Vtesse is providing funding for a phase 1 clinical trial of a treatment for Niemann-Pick Disease Type C and other lysosomal storage diseases, which will be conducted at the NIH Clinical Center. The study is led by researchers at the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences and the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, which are both part of the NIH. There are about 50 lysosomal storage diseases, also known as lipid storage diseases, which are inherited, rare disorders that usually affect children. They cause fatty materials to accumulate in the body's cells and tissues, often resulting in damage to the brain, peripheral nervous system, liver and other organs and tissues. Researchers have been evaluating the safety of a drug called cyclodextrin. Vtesse is supporting that ongoing study, and due to the new agreement, will also help fund a second clinical study of cyclodextrin in this country and Europe. That study is expected to begin sometime this year.
