Kamada Announces Preliminary Results from Phase II/III Pivotal Trial in Europe and Canada of Inhaled AAT to Treat Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency
Kamada Ltd., a plasma-derived protein therapeutics company focused on orphan indications, announces preliminary top-line results from the phase II/III pivotal clinical trial in Europe and Canada of the company’s proprietary inhaled Alpha-1 Antitrypsin (AAT) therapy for the treatment of Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency (AATD or inherited emphysema).
The endpoints selected for this trial were based on scientific advice from the European Medicines Agency (EMA) and include those deemed to be clinically meaningful, such as frequency, time to first, duration and severity of exacerbation events, among others. A preliminary analysis of the results indicates clinically meaningful signs for inhaled AAT efficacy as well as additional positive signs in specific study populations. In a very important secondary end point, frequency of severe exacerbation was approximately 50% lower in the AAT group versus placebo. With regards to the primary endpoint of “time to first moderate or severe exacerbation,” early data do not show differences between the two treatment groups.
