MONTREAL, April 3, 2018 – Replicor Inc., a privately held biopharmaceutical company targeting a cure for chronic hepatitis B and D patients, today announced that new additional follow-up data from its latest NAP-based combination trials in HBV infection (REP 401 study) and HBV / HDV co-infection (REP 301-LTF study) will be presented at the 2018 International Liver Conference (ILC) hosted by the European Society for the Study of the Liver (EASL) to be held April 11-15, 2018 in Paris, France.
The REP 401 study (NCT02565719) is a randomized, controlled trial assessing the safety and efficacy of Replicor’s lead HBsAg release inhibitor, REP 2139-Mg and of a REP 2139 derivative with enhanced plasma and tissue clearance (REP 2165-Mg) in combination with tenofovir disoproxil fumarate (TDF) and pegylated interferon alpha 2a (peg-IFN) in 40 patients with chronic HBeAg negative HBV infection. Poster FRI-343 will feature further extended follow-up in patients in the experimental arm as well as new follow up data from patients in the adaptive control arm (who crossed over to experimental therapy in the absence of a HBsAg response during TDF and pegIFN).
The REP 301-LTF study (NCT02876419) provides a long term follow-up on patients with chronic HBV / HDV co-infection completing combination therapy with REP 2139-Ca and pegIFN in the REP 301 study (NCT02233075). Poster FRI-326 (also featured during the HDV oral e-poster session on Saturday) will include follow-up data now extended to 1.5-2 years.
Updated modelling of viral kinetics during REP 2139-Ca monotherapy in HBeAg+ chronic HBV infection in the REP 102 study (NCT02646189) will also be featured in Poster FRI-324.
