RedHill Biopharma Reports Successful Final Results of Phase III Study With RHB-105 for H. pylori Infection
The RHB-105 first Phase III Clinical Study Report demonstrates the efficacy and safety of RHB-105 in eradication ofH. pyloriinfection, supports the potential superior efficacy of RHB-105 over current standard-of-care therapies and confirms the positive top-line results previously announced
A meeting with the FDA is scheduled for April 2016 to discuss the confirmatory Phase III study with RHB-105, planned to be initiated in Q3/2016, and the path for approval of RHB-105 as a potential best-in-class, first-line therapy forH. pyloriinfection
RHB-105 has received FDA QIDP designation under the GAIN Act, including Fast-Track development, Priority Review and extended market exclusivity for a total of eight years
The 2015 global and U.S. market potential forH. pylorieradication therapies were estimated at approximately $4.83 billion and $1.45 billion, respectively
TEL-AVIV, Israel, March 08, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- RedHill Biopharma Ltd. (NASDAQ:RDHL) (TASE:RDHL) (“RedHill” or the “Company”), a biopharmaceutical company primarily focused on the development and commercialization of late clinical-stage, proprietary, orally-administered, small molecule drugs for inflammatory and gastrointestinal diseases, including cancer, today announced successful final results from the first Phase III clinical study with RHB-105 for the eradication ofH. pylori(the ERADICATE Hp study).
The Phase III Clinical Study Report (CSR) confirms the positive top-line results previously announced by the Company. The study successfully met its primary endpoint of superiority over historical standard-of-care (SoC) eradication rate levels of 70%, with high statistical significance (p<0.001). the final results demonstrated 89.4% efficacy in eradicatingH. pyloriinfection with RHB-105 in all patients who received at least one dose of randomized study treatment and underwent a13C UBT test of cure at Visit 4, 28-35 days after completion of treatment with RHB-105. Subsequent open-label treatment of patients in the placebo arm with SoC therapy for persistentH. pyloriinfection demonstrated a 63% eradication rate with SoC, further supporting the potential superior efficacy of RHB-105 over SoC.0.001).>
The safety profile of RHB-105 was consistent with that observed in the top-line analysis of the Phase III study. RHB-105 was shown to be safe and well-tolerated, with the majority of treatment-related adverse events assessed as mild to moderate. Only one serious adverse event was recorded in the RHB-105 treatment group and was assessed as unrelated to the study drug. The adverse event profile, laboratory values, and other safety assessments did not indicate safety concerns with respect to the use of RHB-105 in the study patient population.Pharmacokinetics samples were collected during the study and a stand-alone PK report will be generated when data analysis is complete.
A meeting with the FDA is scheduled for April 2016 to discuss the planned confirmatory Phase III study with RHB-105 for the treatment ofH.pyloriinfection. RedHill intends to initiate the confirmatory Phase III study in the third quarter of 2016, subject to regulatory and other approvals.
The randomized, placebo-controlled, ERADICATE Hp Phase III study was intended to evaluate the safety and efficacy of RHB-105 as a first-line treatment for confirmedH. pyloribacterial infection. A total of 118 non-investigated dyspepsia patients with confirmedH. pyloriinfection were enrolled and treated in the study, which was conducted in the U.S. Subjects were randomized in a 2:1 ratio to receive either RHB-105 or a placebo for a period of 14 days and assessed for the eradication ofH. pyloriinfection.Subsequent to completion of the treatment period and the un-blinding of the study, subjects enrolled in the placebo arm were entitled to receive SoC therapy as prescribed by the treating physician in an open-label setting, and were assessed for the eradication ofH. pyloriinfection 28-35 days after completion of treatment. David Graham, M.D., M.A.C.G., of the Baylor College of Medicine, a key opinion leader in the field of gastric cancer andH. pyloriinfection, served as Principal Investigator of the ERADICATE Hp Phase III study.
Gilead Raday, RedHill’s Senior VP Corporate and Product Development, said: “We are very pleased that the final results from the successful first Phase III study with RHB-105 forH. pylorieradication confirmed the positive top-line results previously announced. The final results further support the potential superior efficacy of RHB-105 over current standard-of-care therapies forH. pyloriand showed RHB-105 to be safe and well-tolerated. We look forward to meeting with the FDA in April to present the Clinical Study Report and discuss the path to potential approval and the intended design for the confirmatory Phase III study with RHB-105, which we plan to initiate during the third quarter of the year. We continue to work diligently to bring RHB-105 to the market as soon as possible as a best-in-class, first-line therapy for eradication ofH. pylori.”
RHB-105 has been granted Qualifying Infectious Disease Product (QIDP) designation by the FDA, providing a Fast-Track development pathway, as well as Priority Review status, potentially leading to a shorter review time by the FDA of a New Drug Application (NDA), if filed. If approved, RHB-105 will also receive an additional five years of U.S. market exclusivity, in addition to the standard exclusivity period, for a total of 8 years of market exclusivity.
The 2015 global and U.S. market potential forH. pylorieradication therapies, at current branded prices, were recently estimated at approximately $4.83 billion and $1.45 billion, respectively, and could potentially grow with increasing awareness of the health risks associated withH. pyloriinfection and the benefits of its eradication1.
With RHB-105, RedHill is pursuing an indication of first-line treatment ofH. pyloriinfection, regardless of ulcer status, a significantly broader indication than current standard treatments forH. pylori,which are typically indicated only for patients with active or recent history of duodenal ulcer disease. If approved, RHB-105 may be the firstH. pylorieradication therapy to target this broader indication, which would significantly expand the potential patient population for this drug candidate.
RHB-105 is a new and proprietary fixed-dose oral combination therapy of two antibiotics and a proton pump inhibitor (PPI) in an all-in-one oral capsule with a planned indication for the treatment ofH. pyloriinfection.H. pyloribacterial infection is a major cause of chronic gastritis, peptic ulcer disease, gastric cancer and mucosa associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphoma. A first Phase III study with RHB-105 was completed in the U.S. with positive results (the ERADICATE Hp study). The study demonstrated an overall success rate of 89.4% in eradicatingH. pylori, and met its protocol-defined primary endpoint of superiority in eradication ofH. pyloriinfection over historical standard of care efficacy levels of 70%, with high statistical significance (p<0.001).RedHill plans to conduct a confirmatory Phase III study. Additional studies may be required, subject to FDA feedback. RHB-105 has been granted Qualifying Infectious Disease Product (QIDP) designation by the FDA, providing a Fast-Track development pathway, as well as Priority Review status, potentially leading to a shorter review time by the FDA of an NDA, if filed. If approved, RHB-105 will also receive an additional five years of U.S. market exclusivity, in addition to the standard exclusivity period, for a total of 8 years of market exclusivity.0.001)
