Data from Pharmawand - Curated by Marshall Pearce - Date added 20 April 2017
Motif Bio plc announced positive topline results from REVIVE-1, a global Phase III clinical trial of its investigational drug candidate iclaprim in patients with acute bacterial skin and skin structure infections (ABSSSI).
Iclaprim achieved the primary endpoint of non-inferiority (NI) (10% margin) compared to vancomycin at the early time point (ETP), 48 to 72 hours after the start of administration of the study drug, in the intent-to-treat (ITT) patient population. Iclaprim also achieved NI (10% margin) at the test of cure (TOC) endpoint, 7 to 14 days after study drug discontinuation, in the ITT patient population.
In an analysis of a pre-specified secondary endpoint, 60.4% of patients receiving iclaprim demonstrated resolution or near resolution at end of therapy (EOT), compared to 58.3% of patients receiving vancomycin (treatment difference: 2.07%, 95% CI: -5.80% to 9.94%). In another pre-specified secondary endpoint analysis, using a modified clinical cure TOC endpoint defined by a more than 90% reduction in lesion size at TOC, no increase in lesion size since ETP and no requirement for additional antibiotics, clinical cure was seen in 68.5% of patients receiving iclaprim and 73.0% of patients receiving vancomycin (treatment difference: -4.54%, 95% CI: -11.83% to 2.74%).
Data from REVIVE-2, the second Phase III trial, which uses an identical protocol to REVIVE-1 but has different trial centers, are expected in the second half of 2017 and submission of a New Drug Application (NDA) for iclaprim for the treatment of ABSSSI is anticipated in the first half of 2018.
