Ardea Biosciences Reports Recent Accomplishments and Second Quarter 2011 Financial Results

ated in the ongoing extension portion of Study 203.
  • Results from the completed 28-day main portion of the study showing, at the highest lesinurad dose tested, the number of patients taking the combination who achieved the target sUA level of below 6 mg/dL was more than three times the number of patients who achieved the target on allopurinol alone. This translated into an overall response rate of 87 percent using a "last observation carried forward", or LOCF, analysis. The combination of lesinurad and allopurinol was generally well tolerated in the 28-day main portion of Study 203.
  • Results from a completed preclinical study showing that lesinurad is an active inhibitor of the OAT4 transporter, a uric acid transporter in the kidney believed to be responsible for the hyperuricemia caused by the anti-hypertensive diuretic agent, hydrochlorothiazide.  As hypertension is a common co-morbid condition in gout patients, this secondary lesinurad activity may benefit gout patients taking this common treatment for hypertension. Consistent with these preclinical results, a high level of response was observed with lesinurad in the subset of patients receiving thiazide diuretics in Study 203.
  • In June 2011, we presented data from a completed, multi-center, Phase 1, monotherapy, dose-escalation study of BAY-86-9766 (RDEA119) in advanced cancer patients at the 2011 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting.  BAY 86-9766 (RDEA119) is a potent and highly selective inhibitor of mitogen-activated ERK kinase (MEK) for the treatment of cancer being developed under a global license agreement with Bayer Healthcare.
  • We are currently preparing for the commencement of Phase 3 studies of lesinurad which will focus on patients who do not reach target serum uric acid levels with, or are intolerant to, the current standard of care, allopurinol.  In anticipation of these studies, we recently initiated two observational studies i
