Ardelyx, Inc. Announces Positive Results of Open Label Clinical Study Evaluating the Pharmacodynamic (PD) Activity of RDX022 in Healthy Adult Volunteerrkalemia
Jan 5 16
Ardelyx, Inc. announced positive results of an open label clinical study evaluating the pharmacodynamic (PD) activity of RDX022 in healthy adult volunteers. The study demonstrated that RDX022, Ardelyx's proprietary potassium binder for the treatment of hyperkalemia, effectively binds potassium in the gastrointestinal tract supporting plans to proceed with a Phase 3 clinical program currently expected to begin in the second half of 2016. RDX022 was generally well-tolerated at all doses administered (up to 27.5 g/day) in the study. This open-labeled pharmacodynamic (PD) study of RDX022 consisted of a two-day treatment-free baseline period and a four-day treatment period. The study included four cohorts, and in each cohort, 12 subjects received RDX022 and three subjects received a similar dose of sodium polystyrene sulfonate (SPS) for a total of 60 subjects. RDX022 was administered at 4.6 g BID (9.2 g/day), 6.9 g BID (13.8 g/day), 4.6 g TID (13.8 g/day) and 9.2 g TID (27.5 g/day), and resulted in a mean increase of fecal potassium from baseline of 888 mg/day, 1,791 mg/day, 1,408 mg/day, and 1,670 mg/day, respectively. RDX022 was generally well-tolerated at all doses and demonstrated comparable results to those observed with sodium polystyrene sulfonate (SPS). Other fecal electrolytes were monitored during the study and no unexpected changes were observed; in particular, fecal magnesium remained unchanged from baseline. The results of the study will be presented in a future scientific format.
