Karolinska Development's portfolio company Modus Therapeutics completes enrollment in Phase II study with sevuparin

Dela

STOCKHOLM, January 7, 2019. Karolinska Development's portfolio company Modus Therapeutics announces that the patient enrollment has been completed in the Phase II study with sevuparin in patients with sickle cell disease (SCD). The results from the study is expected in mid 2019.

Modus Therapeutic's randomized, double blind study contains 140 SCD-patients with Acute Vaso Occlusive Crisis (VOC). It compares intravenously administered sevuparin with placebo. The primary endpoint of the study is the demonstration of a reduced time to resolution of patient's VOC. Clincal sites across Europe and the Middle East took part in the study that was conducted in conjunction with Modus Therapeutics' co development partner Ergomed.

SCD has a high unmet medical need as there are currently no approved therapies for VOCs. It is an inherited blood disorder that affects between 90,000 to 100,000 patients in the U.S. and is characterized by severely painful VOCs that lead to organ damage due to a lack of oxygen delivery to the organs. Progressive organ damage limits the life expectancy of patients with SCD. The care costs over the patients' lifetime can exceed USD 1 million per patient with an estimated USD 1 billion spent annually in the U.S.

"A potential treatment for VOCs in SCD would be crucial for many patients as there are today no approved treatments on the market. This is one of several important clinical trials from our portfolio companies where we expect results during 2019", says Viktor Drvota, CEO of Karolinska Development.
