The Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology Publishes Phase 2a Study Results With Cytos Biotechnology's CYT003 for the Treatment of Allergic Asthma
Date:3/12/2013

ZURICH, March 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Cytos Biotechnology Ltd (SIX:CYTN) today announced the publication of the results from its phase 2a clinical trial with CYT003-QbG10 (CYT003), a first-in-class immune modulator in clinical development as a potential new treatment for allergic asthma. The data are published in the March issue of The Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology (JACI) in the article entitled "The novel TLR-9 agonist QbG10 shows clinical efficacy in persistent allergic asthma" by Kai-Michael Beeh , MD, et al. (J Allergy Clin Immunol. 2013 Mar;131(3):866-874).

The article was selected for comment by the JACI Editors ("The Editors' Choice") under the heading "Get the balance right - therapeutic immune modulation in patients with allergic asthma" (J Allergy Clin Immunol. 2013 Mar; 131 (3):683).

The published study is a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial in patients with persistent allergic asthma requiring long-term treatment with inhaled corticosteroids (ICS). The study took place at five centers in Germany and recruited 63 patients who received 7 weekly to bi-weekly subcutaneous injections, with efficacy assessment during 12 weeks. ICS treatment was withdrawn in two steps from 100% to 50% to 0%. Clinical endpoints included asthma control determined by a validated questionnaire (ACQ), lung function objectively assessed by spirometry (FEV1), day and night-time asthma symptoms and use of relief medication. In addition inflammatory markers (exhaled nitric oxide and eosinophils in the peripheral blood) were evaluated. The study met all clinical endpoints. In patients treated with CYT003 their asthma control improved despite ICS withdrawal. In patients on placebo, the withdrawal of ICS, as expected, led to a worsening of the disease with a statistically significant and clinically important difference between treatment
