X4 Pharmaceuticals Shares Tumble After Phase 3 Data From Rare Immune Deficiency Candidate
  • X4 Pharmaceuticals Inc XFOR announced topline results from the pivotal Phase 3 (4WHIM) trial of its lead investigational therapy, mavorixafor, a novel CXCR4 antagonist, in people with WHIM syndrome.
  •  Warts, Hypogammaglobulinemia, Infections, and Myelokathexis (WHIM) is a rare congenital immune deficiency in which individuals are more susceptible to potentially life-threatening bacterial infections.
  • 4WHIM met its primary endpoint, with mavorixafor achieving clinical and statistical superiority over placebo when measuring TATANC, or the length of time that participants' absolute neutrophil counts (ANC) remained above a clinically meaningful threshold of 500 cells per microliter (severe neutropenia), over 24-hour periods at 4 time points throughout the 52-week trial.

Mean TATALC was 15.80 hours in the treatment group versus 4.55 hours in the placebo group.
  • Mavorixafor was generally well tolerated in the trial, with no treatment-related serious adverse events reported and no discontinuations for safety events.
