FDA Grants Fast Track Designation for Atyr's Resolaris to Treat Limb Girdle Muscular Dystrophy 2B and Removes Partial Clinical Hold for Resolaris

Tyr Pharma, Inc. announced that its product candidate Resolaris was granted Fast Track designation by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of limb girdle muscular dystrophy 2B (LGMD2B), making it the first known therapeutic candidate for the treatment of LGMD2B to receive the designation. In addition, the FDA removed its partial clinical hold on a dosing ceiling for Resolaris in clinical trials. aTyr previously announced results from a completed Phase 1b/2 open-label, intra-patient dose escalation trial testing doses of Resolaris up to 3.0 mg/kg biweekly in patients with LGMD2B. Based on the clinical trials completed to date, Resolaris has demonstrated a favorable safety profile without signs of immuno-suppression of circulating immune cells. 78% of the LGMD2B patients in the trial (7 of 9) recorded increases in their muscle function at 14 weeks as measured by manual muscle test, a validated assessment tool. Overall, the LGMD2B patients had a mean increase of MMT scores from baseline of 6.2%.
