Tobira Therapeutics, Inc. Completes Patient Recruitment for CENTAUR Phase 2b Study of Cenicriviroc in NASH with Liver Fibrosis

Tobira Therapeutics, Inc. announced that it has completed recruitment for the Phase 2b CENTAUR study. CENTAUR is a global, double blind, placebo controlled, Phase 2b clinical trial evaluating the treatment effects of cenicriviroc (CVC) versus placebo in patients with non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) and liver fibrosis at high risk of progressive disease. NASH is a severe form of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. Patients with NASH and risk factors such as liver fibrosis and type 2 diabetes or metabolic syndrome are often at higher risk for progression to more advanced liver complications such as cirrhosis and liver cancer. Results of the one-year primary endpoint are anticipated to be announced in mid-2016. Tobira plans to submit further detail regarding study demographics for presentation at an upcoming scientific conference. The primary endpoint of the CENTAUR study is a two-point improvement in NAS (NAFLD Activity Score) without progression of fibrosis. The study will evaluate additional surrogate endpoints, including resolution of NASH with no concurrent worsening of fibrosis stage and measures of fibrosis improvement. These endpoints have been the focus of subgroup analyses in other NASH studies as well as industry and regulatory agency dialog and Tobira anticipates they may form the basis for future regulatory approvals of therapies for NASH with liver fibrosis.
