Acelarin achieved a disease control rate of 93% in a subset of 14 evaluable patients with advanced gynecological cancers in the PRO-001 study.
This was followed by the Phase 1b dose-ranging PRO-002 study where Acelarin in combination with carboplatin achieved a 96% disease control rate and 39% response rate in 23 evaluable patients with recurrent ovarian cancer. 13, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Apellis Pharmaceuticals, Inc.

8, 2017– Synlogic, Inc.,(Nasdaq: SYBX) a clinical-stage drug discovery and development company applying synthetic biology to probiotics to develop novel Synthetic Biotic medicines, today announced positive top-line clinical data from its Phase 1 placebo-controlled single (SAD) and multiple ascending dose (MAD) clinical trial of SYNB1020 in healthy volunteers.
The trial successfully met the primary objectives demonstrating safety and tolerability in healthy volunteers and identifying the maximum tolerated dose.
As expected, SYNB1020 did not lower blood ammonia levels in these healthy individuals who had normal blood ammonia levels at baseline.
Collectively, the data support the hypothesis that SYNB1020 treatment may enable metabolism of potentially neurotoxic blood levels of ammonia in patients with hyperammonemia stemming from UCDs or liver damage.
In part two of the study, Nu Cana will select one of these doses and enroll at least an additional 24 patients at the selected dose.
Nu Cana expects to announce interim data from this study in 2018.
“We look forward to evaluating SYNB1020 in patients, and to moving our second program, SYNB1618 for the treatment of phenylketonuria into clinical trials in 2018.
SYNB1020 was safe and well tolerated in subjects in multiple ascending dose cohorts who received total daily doses of up to 1.5×1012 CFU for 14 days.
