Secretin (RG1068) for Imaging of the Pancreas
In March, we initiated a Phase 3 clinical trial to evaluate the use of RG1068, synthetic human secretin, to improve the assessment of pancreatic duct structures by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The Phase 3 study is a multi-center, baseline-controlled, single dose study in which approximately 250 patients will receive an unenhanced MRI followed by a secretin-enhanced MRI of the pancreas. The study is designed to assess the sensitivity and specificity of secretin-enhanced MRI to improve the ability to detect pancreatic duct abnormalities relative to MRI alone. Detailed visual assessment of the pancreatic ducts is important in the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of diseases such as acute and chronic pancreatitis. The study is being conducted at approximately 30 clinical sites within the United States and Canada. In April, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration granted Fast Track Designation to our development program. Fast Track is a process designed to facilitate the development and expedite the review of drugs that treat serious diseases and fill an unmet medical need.
