Alnylam Presents Final Results from a Phase I Clinical Trial of ALN-TTR01, an RNAi Therapeutic Targeting Transthyretin for the Treatment of Transthyretin-Mediated Amyloidosis
Alnylam Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: ALNY) announced today final results from its completed Phase I clinical trial with ALN-TTR01, an RNAi therapeutic targeting transthyretin (TTR) for the treatment of TTR-mediated amyloidosis (ATTR). The data were presented at the XIII International Symposium on Amyloidosis held May 6-10, 2012 in Groningen, The Netherlands.
Data from this study show that administration of ALN-TTR01 resulted in statistically significant reductions in serum TTR protein levels, including both wild-type and mutant TTR protein, in ATTR patients. Knockdown of TTR, the disease-causing protein, was found to be dose dependent, rapid, and durable after just a single dose. The full time course for TTR knockdown reveals the potential for once monthly or possibly once every other monthly dose regimens in further studies. ALN-TTR was found to be generally safe and well tolerated in this study.
