Lipodystrophy Pipeline | A Clinical Trials Analysis Report | DelveInsight


Los Angeles, USA, June 09, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Lipodystrophy Pipeline | A Clinical Trials Analysis Report | DelveInsight 

The companies with their Lipodystrophy drug candidates in the most advanced stage (Phase III stage) include Ionis Pharmaceuticals, soon drifting the Lipodystrophy Pipeline landscape.

DelveInsight's "Lipodystrophy Pipeline Insight" report provides comprehensive insights about 10+ companies and 10+ pipeline drugs in the Lipodystrophy pipeline landscapes. It comprises Lipodystrophy pipeline drug profiles, including clinical and non-clinical stage products. It also includes the Lipodystrophy therapeutics assessment by product type, stage, route of administration, and molecule type and further highlights the inactive Lipodystrophy pipeline products.     

Some of the key takeaways from the Lipodystrophy Pipeline Report  

  • Notable companies such as Regeneron Pharmaceuticals, Ionis Pharmaceuticals, Pfizer, Amunix, Zydus Cadila, Galmed Pharmaceuticals, Cell Praxis, Carmot Therapeutics, CombiGene and others are developing potential drug candidates to boost the Lipodystrophy treatment scenario. 
  • In May 2019, Volanesorsen was approved in Europe to treat adult patients with Familial Chylomicronemia Syndrome (FCS) based on positive results from the multinational, phase III APPROACH and COMPASS studies. 
  • Volanesorsen has been granted orphan designation in Europe for the Familial Partial Lipodystrophy treatment.  
  • Akcea commercialises TEGSEDI (inotersen) and WAYLIVRA (volanesorsen), and with Ionis, advancing a mature pipeline of novel medicines discovered by Ionis and based on Ionis' proprietary antisense technology.
  • The EU is electing to invest in CombiGene's ­lipodystrophy project CGT2 through the Eurostars programme that is focused at small and medium-sized development companies, which intend to make use of the great benefits that international collaborations can bring. Eurostars allocates EUR 882,500 to CombiGene's lipodystrophy project.

Lipodystrophy is a medical problem where there is an abnormal distribution of fat in the body. The condition is also characterised by a lack of circulating leptin, which may lead to osteosclerosis. Currently, there is no specific treatment, which will permanently replace adipose tissue. The Lipodystrophy treatment is focused on managing metabolic abnormalities to prevent complications and cosmetic appearance. 

Lipodystrophy Emerging Drugs

  • Volanesorsen (IONIS-APOCIII-LRx): Ionis Pharmaceuticals

IONIS-APOCIII-LRx, formerly known as AKCEA-APOCIII-LRx, is a ligand-conjugated (LICA) investigational antisense medicine designed to prohibit the production of apoC-III for patients who are at risk of condition due to increased triglyceride levels. ApoC-III is a protein produced in the liver that maintains triglyceride metabolism in the blood. The drug is currently being investigated in the Phase III stage of development to treat patients with Hyperlipoproteinaemia and Lipodystrophy. The U.S. FDA and European Medicines Agency have also granted the drug with the Orphan drug designation

  • Vupanorsen: Pfizer

Vupanorsen is an investigational antisense therapy founded by Ionis Pharmaceuticals and co-developed by Ionis and its subsidiary Akcea Therapeutics. Vupanorsen has been created using Ionis' advanced LIgand Conjugated Antisense (LICA) technology platform to prohibit the production of angiopoietin-like 3 (ANGPTL3) protein, which a vital regulator of triglyceride and cholesterol metabolism in the liver. Pfizer has started a Phase 2b study of vupanorsen in statin-treated patients with elevated non-high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (non-HDL-C) and triglycerides (TGs).

  • REGN4461: Regeneron Pharmaceuticals

REGN4461 is a leptin receptor (LEPR) agonist for lipodystrophy and obesity which is being developed by Regeneron Pharmaceuticals. It is currently in the Phase II stage of development. It is administered intravenously or subcutaneously

  • CGT2: CombiGene

CGT2 was licensed from Lipigon Pharmaceuticals 2019; CombiGene expanded its scope to include metabolic diseases. The project's initial goal is to develop a gene therapy treatment for partial lipodystrophy, a very rare disease that today completely lacks adequate treatment. CGT2 is currently in the Preclinical stage of development.
