Cocrystal Pharma, Inc. Announces Positive Interim Data from an Ongoing Phase 1 Study with CC-31244 for the Treatment of Chronic Hepatitis C Infection

Cocrystal Pharma, Inc. announced positive data from a randomized, double-blind Phase Ia/Ib study of CC-31244, a pan-genotypic, potent NS5B non-nucleoside inhibitor (NNI), for the treatment of chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection. The study is designed to evaluate CC-31244's safety/tolerability and pharmacokinetics, including food effect and antiviral activity. The study includes two groups: Group A (single ascending doses, and multiple doses in healthy volunteers), and Group B (multiple doses in HCV infected individuals). The study has dosed a total of 42 healthy volunteers with single (20, 50, 100, 200 and 400 mg) and multiple doses of CC-31244 at 200 and 400 mg for 7 days. Five HCV GT1 infected patients were dosed, four with 400 mg of CC-31244 once daily for 7 days and one with placebo. Data from the once daily 400 mg dosing arm demonstrate that CC-31244 had a substantial and durable antiviral effect with an average HCV RNA viral load decline from baseline of 3 log orders by 48 hours after dosing. The average viral load at 6 days post last dose remained on average 1.9 log orders below baseline. In addition, no viral breakthrough was observed during the treatment period. No serious adverse event was reported. CC-31244 is an investigational, oral, potent, pan-genotypic NNI with high barrier to drug resistance designed and developed using the company's proprietary structure-based drug discovery technology. The molecule interacts with the NS5B RNA polymerase of all major HCV genotypes.
