R-Tech Ueno, Ltd. Announces Completion of a Phase I/II Clinical Study of Recombinant Human Serum Albumin-Containing Ophthalmic Solution

R-Tech Ueno, Ltd. announced the completion of a Phase I/II clinical study of recombinant human serum albumin-containing ophthalmic solution (development code: RU-101) for the treatment of severe dry eye. The design of this study was a placebo (without the active ingredient) controlled, double-masked study in severe dry eyes patients in the United States to confirm the safety and initial efficacy of RU-101 ophthalmic solution in two stages. Using the RU-101 ophthalmic solution of maximum dosage safety of which had been confirmed at Stage I (equivalent to Phase I), the safety and effectiveness were evaluated in the Stage II (equivalent to early Phase II) in 104 patients (RU-101 ophthalmic solution, 52 patients; placebo ophthalmic solution, 52 patients). The corneal staining score after 12-week administration was used as a primary endpoint for the effectiveness. No safety issue was found for RU-101 ophthalmic solution throughout the two stages. Administration of RU-101 ophthalmic solution significantly improved the corneal staining score time-dependently and statistically for 4, 8, and 12 weeks after starting instillation. However, no significant difference between RU-101 and placebo was noticeable in the score after 12 weeks of instillation because the score improved similarly in the placebo group as well. Nevertheless, the RU-101 instillation group tended to show a greater improvement after 4 and 8 weeks than the placebo group, and the improvement was particularly remarkable in patients with more severe dry eyes. In addition, results from evaluation with the conjunctival staining score, a secondary endpoint, were similar to those from corneal staining score-based evaluation.

R-Tech Ueno, Ltd. Announces Initiation of the Phase I Clinical Trial for the Novel VAP-1 Inhibitor RTU-1096

R-Tech Ueno, Ltd. has started the phase one clinical trial for the new molecular entity RTU-1096, which is a vascular adhesion protein-1 (VAP-1) inhibitor having anti-inflammatory and immunomodulatory effects. The descriptions are as follows: the company has developed the anti-inflammatory drug with a new mechanism of action based on the VAP-1 inhibitory effect. At present, the company has started the phase I clinical trial for the oral agent of a new molecular entity (Development Code: RTU-1096) targeted at healthy male adults. This trial is intended to examine the safety, tolerability, and pharmacokinetics of the inhibitor with a single dose. The trial would be conducted as a placebo-controlled, double-blind, dose-escalation study complied with the Good Clinical Practice (GCP). RTU-1096 is a new molecular entity for first-in-human use. After its safety and tolerability with a single dose are confirmed, it would further examine its safety, tolerability, and pharmacokinetics with repeated doses. If its safety and tolerability are confirmed through the phase I clinical trial, RTU-1096 would be one of the promising treatment candidates for diseases with unmet medical needs (medical areas where satisfying treatment is not yet established), which is what the company is focused on. The current candidate diseases for RTU-1096 are dermatological diseases such as atopic dermatitis and psoriasis. These diseases have been treated mainly with ointments such as steroids, and there are concerns regarding side effects due to long-term administration and the burden of daily application. RTU-1096 has a new mechanism of action; therefore, the company believe that it will possibly be effective for patients in whom the existing treatment is not sufficiently effective. In addition, by providing RTU-1096 as an oral agent, the company expects that it would improve the quality of life (QOL) of patients and reduce the burden on the patients' families.
