Sanofi and Regeneron Launch Comprehensive Phase 3 Clinical Program With LDL Cholesterol-Lowering PCSK9 Antibody
Date:7/19/2012

New York and Chair of the ODYSSEY Steering Committee.  "Sustained PCSK9 blockade represents a potential new option to further reduce LDL-C on top of standard of care statin therapy and help patients achieve their LDL-C goals."

The ODYSSEY program will enroll more than 22,000 patients.  This includes over ten clinical trials evaluating the effect of SAR236553/REGN727 on the lowering of LDL-C and an 18,000 patient cardiovascular outcomes (e.g., heart attack, stroke) study. LDL-C is expected to be the primary efficacy endpoint for regulatory filings.  The studies will be conducted in clinical centers around the world including the United States, Canada, Western and Eastern Europe, South America, Australia and Asia.  Studies are currently enrolling patients with familial hypercholesterolemia or elevated cardiovascular risk, as well as patients unable to tolerate statin therapy.

"We believe that Regeneron's expertise in antibody discovery and development, combined with Sanofi's experience in clinical development and self-injectable delivery systems, will be an advantage as we work to bring this important new therapy to patients who are unable to reach their LDL-C goals with traditional lipid-modifying therapies, as quickly as possible," said George D. Yancopoulos, M.D., Ph.D., Chief Scientific Officer of Regeneron and President of Regeneron Research Laboratories.

In parallel, Sanofi announced the creation of a dedicated PCSK9 Development & Launch Unit.  Jay Edelberg, M.D., Ph.D. has recently been appointed as Head of the Development & Launch Unit, reporting to Elias Zerhouni, President, Global R&D and Hanspeter Spek, President, Global Operations, Sanofi.  The creation of a dedicated unit for this new PCSK9 inhibitor underscores Sanofi's commitment to develop this potential first-in-class therapeutic agent.
