09:02 EDTBAXBaxter announces phase III trial of BAX 817 met primary endpoint
Baxter International announced positive results from its Phase III clinical trial evaluating the safety and efficacy of BAX 817, an investigational recombinant factor VIIa treatment for people with hemophilia A or B who develop inhibitors. The prospective, open-label, randomized, multicenter trial was designed to assess the safety and efficacy of BAX 817 in male patients ages 12 to 65 with hemophilia A or B with inhibitors over a 6-month period using on-demand therapy. The trial met its primary endpoint of successful resolution of acute bleeding episodes at 12 hours with both on-demand treatment regimens, dosing either 3x90 g/kg or 1x270 g/kg, with an overall success rate of 92% -- 98% and 85% in each dosing group, respectively. Further, 89% of patients in the trial achieved sustained bleeding control for all acute bleeding episodes 24 hours after infusion. No patients developed inhibitors or binding antibodies to BAX 817, and none discontinued treatment due to an adverse event. One patient was hospitalized following a traumatic muscle bleed that did not respond to BAX 817. Non-serious AEs observed in the trial were generally consistent with the underlying disease or other etiology, and were all deemed to be unrelated to treatment. Full data from the trial, including additional efficacy and safety outcomes, will be presented at a medical meeting later in 2015. The company plans to initiate regulatory submissions aligned to manufacturing expansions currently underway.
