10:46 EDTALNYAlnylam and The Medicines Co. reports trial results with ALN-PCSsc
Alnylam (ALNY) and The Medicines Company (MDCO) reported results from their ongoing Phase 1 clinical trial with ALN-PCSsc in an oral presentation at the American Heart Association Scientific Sessions 2015. ALN-PCSsc is an investigational RNAi therapeutic targeting PCSK9 - a genetically validated protein regulator of LDL receptor metabolism - being developed for the treatment of hypercholesterolemia. As reported previously, subcutaneous administration of ALN-PCSsc resulted in an up to 83% lowering of LDL-C, with an up to 64 +/- 5 percent mean maximum reduction, comparable to published results for anti-PCSK9 MAbs. In new results, the effects of ALN-PCSsc were found to be highly durable, with clinically significant and clamped reductions in LDL-C, supportive of a potential bi-annual subcutaneous dose regimen. Specifically, an up to 53 percent maximal and 47% least squares mean reduction in LDL-C was achieved at day 180 after just a single, low volume injection. In addition, ALN-PCSsc was shown to reduce a number of atherogenic lipids, including lipoprotein - or "Lp" - and total cholesterol, which are associated with increased risk of cardiovascular disease. ALN-PCSsc was generally well tolerated with no clinically significant drug-related adverse events. The development leadership of ALN-PCSsc has now transferred from Alnylam to The Medicines Company, who expects to initiate the ORION-1 Phase 2 study by the end of 2015.
