Intellia Therapeutics Announces New Positive Clinical Data from Study of an Investigational In Vivo CRISPR Genome Editing Treatment for Hereditary Angioedema
Intellia Therapeutics, a leading clinical-stage genome editing company focused on developing potentially curative therapeutics leveraging CRISPR-based technologies, has announced updated interim results from the Phase 1 portion of the ongoing Phase 1/2 study of NTLA-2002. NTLA-2002 is an in vivo, systemically administered CRISPR candidate being developed as a single-dose treatment for hereditary angioedema (HAE). The data, with a cut-off date of February 17, 2023, were shared in a late-breaking presentation at the European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology (EAACI) Hybrid Congress 2023, being held June 9-11 in Hamburg, Germany, and virtually.
“After a single dose of our investigational CRISPR-based therapy, patients living with hereditary angioedema experienced durable elimination of their attacks. We are thrilled to see that the earliest-dosed patients are attack free for approximately a year or longer, with NTLA-2002 demonstrating a very favorable safety profile. These remarkable attack rate reductions have been consistent, even in patients with the most severe symptoms,” said Intellia President and Chief Executive Officer John Leonard, M.D. “While early, these unprecedented interim data from the Phase 1 study continue to reinforce our belief that NTLA-2002 could be a potential functional cure for people with hereditary angioedema. In addition, these data strengthen our view that NTLA-2002 could address the significant treatment burden that exists, despite currently available, chronically administered therapies.”
In the Phase 1 portion of the study, single doses of 25 mg (n=3), 50 mg (n=4) and 75 mg (n=3) of NTLA-2002 were administered via intravenous infusion, and HAE attacks and plasma kallikrein protein levels were measured for each patient. The first analysis of HAE attack rates occurred at the end of the pre-specified 16-week primary observation period. HAE attacks and plasma kallikrein protein levels will continue to be assessed through the end of the study.
Across all patients, a 95% mean reduction in monthly attack rate was observed after a single dose of NTLA-2002 through the latest follow-up.
