AB Science S.A. Recommends the Continuation of Phase 3 Study of Masitinib in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

AB Science SA announced that the external Data and Safety Monitoring Board (DSMB) has recommended the continuation of its phase 3 study of masitinib in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) based upon review of the latest safety data. The DSMB was created as part of the company's pivotal clinical study evaluating masitinib in the treatment of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. The on-going phase 3 clinical trial is an international, multicenter, randomized, double-blind study comparing the efficacy and safety of masitinib with that of placebo in the treatment of patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. Study treatment is given as add-on therapy to patients who have been treated with a stable dose of riluzole. The efficacy analysis is measured by the Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Functional Rating Scale (ALSFRS-Revised) after 48 weeks of treatment. These results are reassuring because they confirm there are no observed safety concerns with masitinib in combination with riluzole over a 1-year treatment period.

AB Science S.A. Announces Encouraging Follow-Up Results from a Phase 2 Study with its Investigational Drug, masitinib

AB Science S.A. announced encouraging follow-up results from a phase 2 study with its investigational drug, masitinib, in patients with nonresectable, metastatic colorectal cancer after progression to first-line treatment. This was a prospective, multicenter, open label phase 2 study testing masitinib in combination with three standard-of-care chemotherapies including FOLFIRI, FOLFOX, and gemcitabine. Primary endpoint was overall survival (OS) and secondary endpoints included progression-free survival (PFS) and overall response rate (ORR). AB Science has previously reported a survival benefit for masitinib plus FOLFIRI (irinotecan, 5-fluorouracil and folinic acid) in this indication based on preliminary data analysis with a median OS of 14.5 months. One year later, after a median follow-up of approximately 23 months, this survival benefit has been confirmed with a median OS of 18.0 months. Of note, approximately 50% of the masitinib plus FOLFIRI treatment cohort were positive for the KRAS mutation. These results compare favorably to published results for second-line FOLFIRI treatment in which median OS was reported as 12.5 months in patients with wild-type KRAS and 11.1 months in patients with mutant KRAS. The survival endpoints of PFS and ORR were also favorable for masitinib plus FOLFIRI when compared with historic benchmarks, regardless of KRAS mutation status. In the overall study population, median PFS was 6.2 months as compared with 3.9 to 4.9 months for the FOLFIRI benchmark, and ORR was 28% as compared with 10% to 14% for the FOLFIRI benchmark. Of significance, one patient reported a confirmed complete response, which is an exceptional observation in this clinical setting. Safety data showed that the combination of masitinib and FOLFIRI has an acceptable safety profile. The decision to move to the currently recruiting phase 3 study was based on encouraging preliminary results from phase 2, a decision that is corroborated by these follow-up data.
