08:06 EDTMRK, ALNYAlnylam names new program ALN-HBV to its pipeline
Alnylam (ALNY) announced that it has named a new program to its pipeline, ALN-HBV for the treatment of hepatitis B virus infection. The new ALN-HBV program derives from the company’s January 2014 acquisition of Merck’s (MRK) RNAi assets, including their Sirna Therapeutics subsidiary. In the most comprehensive proof-of-concept pre-clinical study results presented to date with an RNAi therapeutic for the treatment of HBV, Alnylam reported significant, multi-log reductions in HBV surface antigen and HBV viral titers, and showed evidence for an immune-mediated therapeutic effect in chronically infected chimpanzees. Alnylam plans to advance an ESC-GalNAc-siRNA conjugate targeting the HBV genome for its ALN-HBV program. An ESC-GalNAc-siRNA conjugate will enable subcutaneous dose administration with improved potency and durability, and a wide therapeutic index. The company expects to select a Development Candidate in late FY14 and plans to file an IND or IND equivalent around year end FY15.
