Biogen and Sobi Announce Positive Top-Line results from Phase 3 Study
Biogen Idec (NASDAQ: BIIB) and Swedish Orphan Biovitrum (Sobi) (STO: SOBI) today announced positive results from B-LONG, a clinical study that evaluated a new long-lasting clotting factor candidate in people with hemophilia B. Hemophilia B is a rare inherited disorder that impairs blood coagulation.
Top-line results from B-LONG, a global, multi-center, Phase 3 clinical study of the companies' long-lasting recombinant Factor IX Fc fusion protein (rFIXFc), showed that rFIXFc was effective in the control and prevention of bleeding, routine prophylaxis, and perioperative management. Recombinant FIXFc was generally well-tolerated. Additional analyses of the B-LONG study are ongoing and the companies anticipate presenting further results at a future scientific meeting.
