Shield Therapeutics plc Announces Completion of Patient Enrolment in Pivotal AEGIS-CKD Phase 3 Study

Shield Therapeutics plc announced the completion of enrollment of the pivotal Phase 3 AEGIS-CKD study of its European-marketed product, Feraccru®. Top-line data, based on the 16-week primary endpoint, is anticipated early in the first quarter of 2018. Subjects were enrolled in 30 renal centres across the USA. A positive outcome from this study will enable initiation of the regulatory filing with the US FDA that could lead to the commercialisation of Feraccru in the US and increase the target population for Feraccru from c. 330,000 Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) patients with Iron Deficiency Anaemia (IDA) in Europe to c. 2.6m patients with IDA related to both IBD and CKD in Europe and the USA. The study is evaluating Feraccru (ferric maltol, 30mg bd) compared to placebo in the treatment of IDA in patients with non-dialysis Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD). Feraccru is currently approved in Europe for the treatment of IDA in adults with IBD. Shield recently filed for approval of an expanded label for Feraccru in Europe.
