Five Prime Therapeutics discovering and developing novel protein therapeutics for cancer and inflammatory diseases, today announced that the company has initiated dosing of rheumatoid arthritis, or RA, patients in its Phase 1 clinical trial of FPA008, a monoclonal antibody that inhibits colony stimulating factor-1 receptor, or CSF1R. FPA008 is being developed as a potential treatment for RA and solid tumors. FPA008 has two modes of action in RA, blocking the production of multiple inflammatory cytokines and directly inhibiting the activity of osteoclasts, thus preventing bone erosion.
08:19 EDTDRNADicerna expects to release initial Phase 1 data from DCR-PH1 trial by 2015-end
Dicerna expects to release initial data from a phase 1 clinical trial of DCR-PH1 in patients with PH1 by the end of 2015. In preclinical studies, DCR-PH1 induces potent and long-term inhibition of HAO1 and significantly reduces urinary oxalate levels, while demonstrating long-term tolerability in animal models of PH1. Following an extensive review of rare diseases with gene targets expressed in the liver, Dicerna has prioritized a broad portfolio of research and development opportunities. The company is currently pursuing discovery research on several rare diseases involving the liver and intends to add additional programs over time. Dicerna expects to declare its first DsiRNA-EX conjugate clinical candidate in 2015 for an undisclosed rare disease involving the liver. For competitive reasons, the company does not plan to specify disease areas or therapeutic targets until a program has reached a late preclinical stage.
08:12 EDTDRNADicerna announces license agreement with Tekmira for PH1 program
Dicerna Pharmaceuticals (DRNA) announced a licensing agreement for Dicerna to use Tekmira’s (TKMR) proprietary lipid nanoparticle technology for delivery of DCR-PH1, Dicerna’s investigational product candidate for primary hyperoxaluria type 1, a rare, inherited liver disorder that often results in kidney failure, and for which there are no approved therapies. This announcement follows the successful testing of DCR-PH1 in combination with Tekmira's LNP technology in animal models, including mice and non-human primates. Under the agreement, Dicerna will pay Tekmira $2.5 million upfront, as well as $22 million in potential development milestones, and a mid-single-digit royalty on future PH1 sales. Tekmira’s LNP system has shown in other human clinical studies to provide potent, safe and effective RNA delivery to hepatocytes. Licensing Tekmira’s LNP will streamline the development path for DCR-PH1 and allows Dicerna to focus its LNP efforts on its oncology pipeline.
