08:05 EDTALNYAlnylam, collaborators present new clinical data for patisiran
Alnylam Pharmaceuticals and collaborators announced new clinical data for patisiran, an RNAi therapeutic targeting transthyretin in development for the treatment of TTR-mediated amyloidosis. These data are being presented at the International Symposium on Amyloidosis held April 27 – May 1 in Indianapolis, Indiana. First, the company presented updated Phase 2 results in patients with Familial Amyloidotic Polyneuropathy confirming robust TTR knockdown of up to 96% with a mean TTR knockdown of approximately 80%. Further, Alnylam presented preliminary results from the open-label extension study with patisiran in patients that were enrolled in the Phase 2 study. Preliminary results from the OLE study showed that multiple doses of patisiran achieved sustained knockdown of serum TTR protein levels at the 80% target level through 168 days. Moreover, OLE results showed a favorable tolerability profile with up to eight doses administered. Finally, the company presented results of a natural history, cross-sectional analysis study of 283 FAP patients aimed at measuring the rate of neuropathy progression and its correlation with disease severity. These results provide support for Alnylam’s Phase 3 APOLLO trial where patisiran is being evaluated for its potential efficacy and safety in the FAP indication.

06:04 EDTALNYAlnylam announces positive initial phase 2 data with Revusiran
Alnylam announced positive initial Phase 2 data with revusiran, an investigational RNAi therapeutic targeting transthyretin for the treatment of TTR cardiac amyloidosis. In the pilot Phase 2 study, revusiran was found to be generally well tolerated in TTR cardiac amyloidosis patients. Revusiran demonstrated clinical activity with an up to 98.2% knockdown of serum TTR – the disease causing protein. This included similar knockdown effects toward wild type and mutant TTR protein within V122I patients, who represent the most common genotype associated with inherited forms of TTR cardiac amyloidosis. In the five week course of treatment, there were no significant changes observed in a number of exploratory clinical measurements. Revusiran utilizes Alnylam’s proprietary GalNAc-conjugate delivery platform that enables subcutaneous delivery of RNAi therapeutics with a wide therapeutic index. The primary objective of the study was to evaluate the safety and tolerability of revusiran. The secondary objectives were to assess the clinical activity of revusiran toward serum levels of TTR and characterize the drug’s pharmacokinetic profile. In addition, a number of exploratory clinical measurements were performed at baseline and days 42 and 90 after start of dosing.
