12:26 EDTALNYAlnylam presents new pre-clinical data on RNAi therapeutics
Alnylam Pharmaceuticals announced that it has presented new pre-clinical data from its RNAi therapeutic program for the treatment of hemoglobinopathies at the 54th American Society of Hematology Annual Meeting being held December 8-11, 2012 in Atlanta. Alnylam scientists presented data showing that ALN-TMP, an RNAi therapeutic targeting Tmprss6, leads to disease modifying effects, including a correction in globin gene expression, in a model of ß-thalassemia. These studies were conducted in collaboration with Boston Children’s Hospital. Alnylam’s program in hemoglobinopathies comprises part of its ‘Alnylam 5x15™’ product strategy, by which the company aims to advance five programs in clinical development, including programs in advanced stages, by the end of 2015.

08:06 EDTALNYAlnylam initiates EXPLORE trial
Alnylam Pharmaceuticals and collaborators from the American Porphyria Consortium and The European Porphyria Network have initiated the EXPLORE trial, a prospective observational study of patients with hepatic porphyrias, including Acute Intermittent Porphyria, Variegate Porphyria, and Hereditary Coproporphyria, suffering from recurrent attacks. With this study, Alnylam and clinical investigators aim to learn more about the clinical course, management, and disease burden of patients with hepatic porphyrias that suffer from recurrent attacks. Alnylam is currently advancing ALN-AS1, a subcutaneously administered investigational RNAi therapeutic targeting aminolevulinic acid synthase 1 for the treatment of hepatic porphyrias, and expects to file an IND or IND equivalent in late 2014 or early 2015. EXPLORE is a prospective, multi-center observational study designed to enroll up to 100 patients with hepatic porphyrias and a history of recurrent attacks. The study’s primary objective is to characterize the natural history, clinical management, and disease burden of patients with hepatic porphyrias. The study’s secondary objectives are to further characterize a number of disease features of hepatic porphyrias, including: (i) signs and symptoms of porphyria during acute attacks; (ii) levels of plasma and urinary aminolevulinic acid and porphobilinogen, the toxic intermediates of the heme biosynthesis pathway that cause the symptoms and disease pathology of the acute hepatic porphyrias; (iii) expression levels of aminolevulinic acid synthase-1 during acute attacks; and (iv) medical and family history of hepatic porphyria patients. Data obtained from EXPLORE are expected to further the understanding of hepatic porphyrias and to assist the design of clinical trials with ALN-AS1.
