Receptos, Inc. Key Developments

Receptos Initiates SUNBEAM Phase 3 Trial of RPC1063 in Relapsing Multiple Sclerosis

Receptos, Inc. announced that the company has enrolled the first patient in the SUNBEAM Phase 3 trial of RPC1063 in patients with relapsing multiple sclerosis (RMS). The company had previously initiated the Phase 3 portion of the RADIANCE trial in patients with RMS. With both trials now actively enrolling patients, Receptos is on track to complete this Phase 3 clinical development program in 2017. The announcement follows the disclosure in September 2014 of the detailed Phase 2 results of RPC1063 in RMS. In that trial, RPC1063 met the primary endpoint of reduction in MRI brain lesion activity as well as secondary endpoints measuring effects on other MRI parameters. The overall safety profile of RPC1063 was consistent with the results of prior trials and continues to be differentiated on this basis from other oral agents for treatment of RMS. As with the RADIANCE trial, the SUNBEAM trial is a randomized, double-blind study designed to compare 0.5 mg and 1.0 mg of RPC1063 against interferon beta-1a (Avonex®) in 1,200 patients with RMS. The primary objective for the RADIANCE and SUNBEAM trials is to assess whether RPC1063 is superior to Avonex® in reducing the annualized relapse rate in patients after two years of therapy and one year of therapy, respectively. Both Phase 3 trials are being conducted under Special Protocol Assessment (SPA) agreement with the FDA.
