Celtaxsys, Inc. Key Developments

Celtaxsys, Inc. Receives Regulatory Clearance to Commence the Phase 2 Trial for its Compound, CTX-4430

Celtaxsys, Inc. announced that it has received regulatory clearance to commence the phase 2 trial for its compound, CTX-4430, in patients with moderate to severe facial acne vulgaris. This approval triggers site engagement to screen and enroll appropriate patients with acne henceforth. This proof-of-concept study will assess the efficacy and safety of 100 mg CTX-4430 administered as a once daily oral dose for 12 weeks. Effects on inflammatory lesion counts will serve as the primary efficacy outcome. Effects on non-inflammatory lesion counts as well as an Investigator's Global Assessment (the physician's overall assessment of the patient's disease) will also be studied. This phase 2 acne vulgaris study will be conducted at approximately 10 sites in Australia and New Zealand with Dr. Lynda J Spelman, MBBS FACD as the Principal Investigator.

U.S. Food and Drug Administration Grants Orphan Drug Designation to Celtaxsys, Inc.'s Once Daily, Oral Leukotriene A4 Hydrolase Inhibitor

Celtaxsys, Inc. announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has granted orphan drug designation (ODD) to its once daily, oral leukotriene A4 hydrolase inhibitor (CTX-4430) for the treatment of cystic fibrosis (CF). The U.S. orphan designation complements the orphan designation for use of CTX-4430 in the treatment of CF in the European Union granted late last year by the European Medicines Agency. Orphan drug designation is granted by the FDA Office of Orphan Products Development to novel drugs or biologics that treat rare diseases or conditions affecting fewer than 200,000 patients in the US. The designation provides the drug developer with a seven-year period of U.S. marketing exclusivity upon approval, as well as certain financial incentives that can help support its future development.
