The changes are expected to go into effect in July 2015.

Kamada Ltd. Reports Additional Data from European Phase 2/3 Clinical Study of Inhaled Alpha-1 Antitrypsin to Treat

Kamada Ltd. announced additional results from its European Phase 2/3 clinical trial of the company’s inhaled alpha-1 antitrypsin (AAT) to treat AAT deficiency (AATD). Kamada performed these post hoc analyses in accordance with guidance received following the company’s meeting with European Medicines Agency (EMA) Rapporteurs in December 2014. The goal of these analyses is to further evaluate lung function results using the most rigorous statistical methods to confirm that the efficacy signal previously identified is valid and robust. Lung Function Results: Results from the post hoc analyses indicate that after one year of daily inhalation of Kamada’s AAT, clinically and statistically significant improvements were seen in spirometric measures of lung function, particularly in bronchial airflow measurements FEV1 (L), FEV1% predicted and FEV1/SVC. These favorable results were even more evident when analyzing the overall treatment effect throughout the full year. For lung function, overall one year effect: FEV1 (L) rose significantly in AAT treated patients and decreased in placebo treated patients (+15ml for AATvs. -27ml for placebo, a 42 ml difference, p=0.0268). There was a trend towards better FEV1% predicted (0.54% for AAT vs. -0.62% for placebo, a 1.16% difference, p=0.065). FEV1/SVC% rose significantly in AAT treated patients and decreased in placebo treated patients (0.62% for AATvs. -0.87% for placebo, a 1.49% difference, p=0.0074). For lung function change at week 50 vs. baseline: There was a trend towards reduced FEV1 (L) decline (-12ml for AAT vs. -62ml for placebo, a 50 ml difference, p=0.0956). There was a trend towards a reduced decline in FEV1% predicted (-0.1323% for AAT vs. -1.6205% for placebo, a 1.4882% difference, p=0.1032). FEV1/SVC% rose significantly in AAT treated patients and decreased in placebo treated patients (0.61% for AAT vs. -1.07% for placebo, a 1.68% difference, p=0.013).

Kamada Ltd. Gets European Orphan Drug Designation for its Alpha-1 Antitrypsin to Treat Graft-Versus-Host Disease

Kamada Ltd. announced that the European Commission, acting on the recommendation from the Committee for Orphan Medicinal Products of the European Medicines Agency (EMA), has designated the company’s proprietary human intrevenous (IV) Alpha-1 Antitrypsin (AAT) as an orphan medicinal product to treat Graft-versus-host disease (GvHD). In October 2014 Kamada received Orphan Drug designation from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for its AAT by IV to treat GvHD. Preliminary human and animal studies indicate that AAT may be able to treat and reduce the severity of GvHD, which is one of the key, life-threatening complications of allogeneic stem cell transplantation. GvHD is an immunologically-based disease that may result in significant damage to multiple organs and tissues such as the liver, gastrointestinal tract, skin and mucosal membranes. Tissue destruction also leads to increased inflammatory signals, perpetuating and augmenting the disease process by contributing to the cytokine storm that fuels GvHD even further and, thereby, the damage continues and its intensity is increased. In recent years, AAT has been investigated extensively and found to have anti-inflammatory, tissue-protective, immune-modulatory and anti-apoptotic properties in direct or indirect consequence of its underlying anti-protease capabilities. These properties may attenuate inflammation by lowering levels of pro-inflammatory mediators such as cytokines, chemokines and proteases that are associated with this severe disease. Kamada’s AAT therapy is being investigated in a clinical U.S. Phase 1/2 study that is evaluating 24 GvHD patients with inadequate response to steroid treatment following allogeneic bone-marrow stem cell transplant. The patients are enrolled into 4 dose cohorts, in which they receive up to 8 doses of Kamada’s AAT. The study is being conducted by the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle in cooperation with Baxter International. Interim results from this study were presented in a poster at the American Society of Hematology Annual Meeting in December 2014. Preliminary results indicated that continuous administration of AAT as therapy for steroid-resistant gut GvHD is feasible in the subject population. Indication of healing of the bowel mucosa was seen in a decrease in diarrhea, in a decrease in intestinal AAT loss, and improvement in endoscopic evaluation. Additionally, in the preliminary results AAT administration suppressed serum levels of pro-inflammatory cytokines and interfered with GvHD biomarkers.
