Vectura Group plc Announces Positive Phase IIb/III Results for VR475 in Asthma

Vectura Group plc announced the publication in the European Respiratory Journal (ERJ) of a clinical study demonstrating positive results from its Phase IIb/III (Acti-AICS-001) clinical trial investigating the efficacy, safety and tolerability of VR475 in the treatment of oral corticosteroid (OCS)-dependent (GINA Step 5) asthma patients. VR475 is an investigational drug/device combination product that delivers an approved corticosteroid, budesonide, to the lungs via Vectura's AKITA Jet inhalation system, controlled by a Smart Card. The system is designed to deliver budesonide to the small airways of the lungs more efficiently than conventional delivery systems. The study compared the effects of two doses of budesonide delivered by AKITA Jet inhalation system (AICS-BUD 1 mg and AICS-BUD 0.5 mg) with placebo and budesonide delivered by conventional nebuliser (CN-BUD 1 mg). These treatments were added to standard severe asthma therapies for 18 weeks. Main study findings include: Significantly more patients successfully reducing OCS dose by more than 50% whilst maintaining asthma stability compared with placebo (primary endpoint; AICS-BUD 1 mg 80% vs placebo 63%; p=0.02) - Mean reduction in OCS dose was 7.1 mg for AICS Bud 1 mg and 3.6 mg for placebo; p=0.005 - Improved lung function for both AICS-BUD doses but not placebo or CN-BUD 1 mg (FEV1 improvement from baseline to week 18: AICS-Bud 1 mg 239 mL; p<0.001); AICS-Bud 0.5 mg (126 mL; p=0.01), placebo (93 mL; p=0.36); CN-Bud (137 mL; p=0.18) - Fewer patients experienced asthma exacerbations in the AICS-BUD 1 mg treated group (AICS-BUD 1 mg, 7.5%) compared with placebo (17.5%) and CN-BUD 1 mg group (22.5%) - Significantly fewer days were spent in hospital in relation to total study duration in the AICS-Bud 1 mg arm (5 of 13,152 patient treatment days vs placebo (49 of 6,328 days), p<0.001). All treatments were well tolerated. VR475 resulted in significant and meaningful OCS reduction in OCS-dependent asthma patients while improving pulmonary function and maintaining asthma exacerbation control.
