Modra Pharmaceuticals B.V. Key Developments

Modra Pharmaceuticals Announces Start of Phase II Study for Lead Oral Chemotherapy in Patients with Metastatic Prostate Cancer

Modra Pharmaceuticals announced the initiation and the inclusion of the first patients in a Phase II study of its lead compound, ModraDoc006/r, in metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer patients to investigate its safety, feasibility and pharmacokinetic profile. ModraDoc006/r is a proprietary oral formulation of docetaxel (ModraDoc006) co-administered with boosting-agent ritonavir (r) to enhance the chemotherapy’s bioavailability. Chemotherapy remains an integral part of current cancer treatment regimens and achieving its oral delivery while retaining both efficacy and safety could significantly improve the therapeutic landscape for treating many types of cancer. The Phase II multi-center study will investigate safety and establish a feasible dosing regimen of ModraDoc006/r in chemotherapy naïve patients with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer for whom treatment with intravenous (IV) docetaxel is indicated. The study will enroll 20 patients and includes dose-escalation aiming to define the maximum tolerated dose that can be safely administered in a bi-daily weekly schedule without interruptions. Pharmacodynamics will be determined as secondary outcome measures. The first patients have already been treated as part of the trial. Modra Pharmaceuticals’ technology has been developed to address an unmet need for improving patient convenience while maintaining chemotherapy’s effectiveness. As the lead program in the Company’s pipeline, ModraDoc006/r has successfully been tested in Phase I clinical trials in patients with solid tumors.
