Glenmark’s Enrollment Begins of First Patient in Phase II Vatelizumab (GBR 500) Trial in Relapsing Remitting Multiple Sclerosis


Enrollment Begins of First Patient in Phase II Vatelizumab Trial in Relapsing Remitting Multiple Sclerosis 

Glenmark outlicensed Vatelizumab (GBR 500) to Sanofi for all indications in 2011

Mumbai – India, November 4, 2014: Glenmark announced today enrollment of the first patient in a multicenter Phase II clinical trial to evaluate Genzyme’s investigational infusion therapy vatelizumab in patients with relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS). The trial, called EMPIRE, is designed to assess the efficacy of vatelizumab vs. placebo in RRMS patients. The safety, tolerability and pharmacokinetics of vatelizumab will also be assessed.

http://bionews-tx.com/news/2014/11/06/first-rrms-patient-enrolled-glenmarkgenzymes-vatelizumab-trial/

The mechanism of action of vatelizumab, which is developed in a collaboration between Glenmark Pharmaceuticals and Genzyme, is not yet fully understood. However, the researchers believe that it will be able to block VLA-2 on activated immune cells, which may enable the interference with collagen-binding in areas of inflammation, as well as leading to the reduction of inflammatory cascade associated with MS.


“We are excited about the commencement of this trial and are pleased with the continued progress of our partnership with Sanofi/Genzyme,” said the President of Biologics and Chief Scientific Officer of Glenmark Pharmaceuticals Ltd., Michael Buschle. EMPIRE, which will be conducted for 12 weeks, is a global phase 2a/2b double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled study that will study the efficacy, safety, and dose-response of vatelizumab in 168 patients with active RRMS at55 sites in ten different countries.

Vatelizumab is an immunomodulator. It binds to integrin alpha 2.[1]

Glenmark’s TRPA1 antagonist ‘GRC 17536’ shows positive data in a proof of concept study


 

MUMBAI, India, Sep 17, 2014

- Glenmark's first in class TRPA1 antagonist, GRC 17536, has shown positive data in a Phase 2a proof of concept study in patients with painful diabetic neuropathy

Glenmark Pharmaceuticals today announced that its first in class Transient Receptor Potential Ankyrin 1 (TRPA1) antagonist, GRC 17536 has shown positive data in a Phase 2a double blind, placebo controlled, multi-centre, proof of concept study conducted on 138 patients in Europe and India.

A statistically significant and clinically relevant response was seen in a prospectively-identified, substantial sub-group of patients with moderate to severe pain who had relatively intact sensory responses as detected by a standardized testing methodology. GRC 17536 was well-tolerated with no evidence of CNS or other drug related side effects.

Patrick Keohane, Chief Medical Officer, Glenmark stated “Diabetic neuropathy remains a difficult to manage chronic clinical condition with limited therapeutic options. These initial efficacy and safety data with GRC 17536, a peripherally acting novel therapeutic, are encouraging, and Glenmark intends to be ready to file for a Phase 2b dose range finding study in patients with neuropathic pain before the end of this financial year. This announcement also reaffirms our position globally in the development of novel pain therapies”.

Commenting on this result, Dr. Michael Buschle, Chief Scientific Officer & President – Biologics, Glenmark Pharmaceuticals mentioned, “This is very promising and GRC 17536 may be useful for several indications which we will pursue”.

The Glenmark TRPA1 program includes indications in pain as well as respiratory. Inhaled doses of GRC 17536 are also being tested in a Phase 2A proof of concept study in patients with Chronic Cough.

http://www.ptinews.com/pressrelease/11726_press-subGlenmark-s-TRPA1-Antagonist–GRC-17536–Shows-Positive-Data-in-a-Proof-of-Concept-Study

Note on TRPA1

TRPA1 is an ion channel expressed on peripheral and spinal sensory neurons and it mediates pain signal transmission. It functions as a cellular sensor for detecting painful mechanical, biochemical and thermal stimuli that cause sensory nerve hyperactivity during chronic pathologies including chronic pain, inflammation, itch and cough. TRPA1 receptor is shown to induce pain hypersensitivity in animal models of diabetic neuropathic pain and its blockade attenuates pain hypersensitivity as well as later loss of the nerve fibers and their function. GRC 17536 is a potent, selective and first in class antagonist of TRPA1 receptor. Preclinical studies have demonstrated its effectiveness in animal models of neuropathic and inflammatory pain including the peripheral diabetic neuropathic pain, osteoarthritic pain, postoperative pain and chemotherapy induced pain which supports potential utility of TRPA1 blockade in therapeutic pain management.

“The US is a key strategic market for Glenmark and it is important for us to have a manufacturing base here to serve our growing business in the country,” Glenmark Pharmaceuticals Chairman and MD Glenn Saldanha said in a statement.

The plan to set up a manufacturing facility in the US underlines the fast paced growth the company has witnessed in a short span of eight years in the US market, he added.

The company will first begin work on an oral solid unit and thereafter set up manufacturing units for injectables and topicals, the Mumbai-based firm said.

“Over the next five years, we will make significant investments in this proposed facility and set up three units which will produce oral solids, injectables and topicals,” Saldanha said.

According to industry sources, the company plans to invest over Rs 500 crore on the facility.

With the setting up of a new facility in the US the company would further enhance its manufacturing footprint making it truly global in every sense of the term, he added.

The proposed facility at Monroe, North Carolina, will cater only to the US market and is the company’s first manufacturing facility in North America adding to its list of 14 plants in four countries – India, Brazil, Argentina and Czech Republic.

The company, which operates in North America through its subsidiary Glenmark Generics Inc, has a fast growing business with a robust portfolio of over 90 products authorised for distribution in the US in niche segments like dermatology, hormones, controlled substances and oncology.

Glenmark has nearly 70 abbreviated new drug applications (ANDAs) pending for approval with the US Food and Drug Administration.
