XBiotech Meets Primary Endpoint in Phase 2 Study of MABp1 for Treatment of Hidradenitis Suppurativa (HS)
AUSTIN, Texas, 2017-02-16 17:32 CET (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --
XBiotech Inc. (NASDAQ:XBIT), developer of next-generation True Human™ therapeutic antibodies, today announced topline results from an investigator sponsored randomized Phase 2 study evaluating XBiotech’s True Human antibody, MABp1, as a treatment for Hidradenitis Suppurativa (HS), a serious and debilitating chronic inflammatory skin disorder. The study met its primary endpoint, demonstrating significant improvement of HS patients compared to control after 12 weeks of therapy(Response rate of 60% vs 10%, respectively (p=0.035)).
A 20 patient double-blind, placebo-controlled study was designed to evaluate the safety and efficacy of MABp1, the Company’s True Human antibody targeting interleukin-1 alpha (IL-1α), in patients with HS not eligible for anti-TNF therapy. Patients were randomized 1:1 to receive either MABp1 or placebo every 2 weeks for 12 weeks. Patients in the study underwent primary assessment of efficacy using Hidradenitis Suppurativa Clinical Response (HiSCR) scores at 12 weeks, continued by a follow up phase to assess time to relapse after an additional 12 weeks without therapy. Efficacy measures include assessment of HiSCR scores, a validated method for evaluating efficacy in HS patients, as well as quality of life assessmentand ultrasonographic evaluation.
“The overall response rate observed in the data is, in my opinion, groundbreaking for the treatment of HS,”Dr. Giamarellos-Bourboulis commented, “I am truly encouraged by these results and very much look forward to the future use of MABp1 as a treatment for this devastating condition.”Prof. Giamarellos-Bourboulis is supervising the Outpatients Department for HS of the 4thDepartment of Medicine of ATTIKON University Hospital in Greece where the study was conducted. This center is a well-recognized European reference center for HS with more than 20 peer-reviewed publications in the field, conduct of four randomized trials with biological therapies and active participation in the PIONEER studies providing registration of adalimumab for HS.
About Hidradenitis Suppurativa
Hidradenitis Suppurativa (HS) is a chronic, inflammatory skin disorder affecting areas rich in apocrine glands. Nodules appear in the affected areas and progressively become swollen with spontaneous rupture and release of pus. This process occurs repeatedly leading to formation of deep sinus tracts and painful dermal abscesses1,2. Therefore, HS is often devastating for patients with significant impact on quality of life3. The Dermatology Quality Life Index (DQLI) for HS is 8.9, being higher than any other skin disorder4. Traditional treatments comprise of antibiotics, antiandrogens and surgery. The global prevalence for HS is estimated at up to 4% of the population2.
