Knopp Biosciences to Present Details of Positive Results From the Phase 2 EXHALE Trial of Oral Dexpramipexole in Moderate-to-Severe Eosinophilic Asthma at ATS 2021
Knopp Biosciences LLC today announced it will present detailed results of its positive Phase 2 dose-ranging EXHALE trial of the novel oral eosinophil-lowering drug dexpramipexole in patients with moderate-to-severe asthma in a virtual poster session at the ATS 2021 International Conference.
“We look forward to sharing comprehensive results of the EXHALE trial, which underscore the readiness of dexpramipexole for further development in eosinophilic asthma,” said Michael Bozik, M.D., president and CEO of Knopp. “Monoclonal antibody treatments approved for asthma demonstrate that reduction in eosinophils is associated with significantly improved outcomes, but the need remains for an oral alternative in the eosinophilic asthma treatment paradigm.”
Following are details of the poster presentation:

ABOUT KNOPP BIOSCIENCES LLC
Knopp Biosciences is a privately held drug discovery and development company focused on delivering breakthrough treatments for immunological and neurological diseases with high unmet need. Knopp’s clinical-stage oral small molecule, dexpramipexole, is in Phase 2 clinical trials in moderate-to-severe eosinophilic asthma. Knopp’s preclinical Kv7 platform is directed to small-molecule treatments for developmental and epileptic encephalopathies, other epilepsies, neuropathic pain, and tinnitus.

Dexpramipexole, a selective inhibitor of eosinophil maturation, is an oral small molecule drug in development by Knopp for asthma and other eosinophil-associated diseases. In hypereosinophilic syndrome, dexpramipexole has previously been shown in a Phase 2 trial to significantly reduce requirements for oral corticosteroids and in a subset of patients to produce durable disease remission. In its earlier development in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, dexpramipexole was shown to be well tolerated in Phase 1, Phase 2, and Phase 3 trials comprising approximately 1,200 patients.
