Baxter Announces Positive Top-Line Results from Its Phase 3 Study of BAX 855, Extended Half-Life Recombinant FVIII for Hemophilia A Patients
Date:8/21/2014

DEERFIELD, Ill., Aug. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Nektar Therapeutics (NASDAQ: NKTR) reports Baxter International Inc. today announced positive results from its Phase 3 pivotal clinical trial of BAX 855, an investigational, extended half-life recombinant factor VIII (rFVIII) treatment for hemophilia A based on ADVATE [Antihemophilic Factor (Recombinant)], which met its primary endpoint in reducing annualized bleed rates (ABR) in the prophylaxis arm compared to the on-demand arm.

Top-line results from the prospective, global, multi-center Phase 3 study demonstrated that BAX 855 met its primary endpoint in the control and prevention of bleeding, routine prophylaxis and perioperative management for patients who were 12 years or older. Patients in a twice-weekly prophylaxis arm experienced a 95 percent reduction in median ABR as compared to those in the on-demand arm (1.9 vs. 41.5, respectively). BAX 855 was also effective in treating bleeding episodes, 96 percent of which were controlled with one or two infusions. The half-life of BAX 855 was 1.4 - 1.5 times that of ADVATE, consistent with the findings from the Phase 1 study. No patients developed inhibitors to BAX 855 and no treatment-related serious adverse events, including hypersensitivity, were reported. The most common (three patients) product-related adverse event was headache.

"The positive results of the BAX 855 study reflect our ongoing, long-term commitment to drive innovation and expand treatment options for patients with hemophilia," said John Orloff, M.D., vice president and global head of research and development for Baxter BioScience. "We look forward to advancing the BAX 855 program to U.S. regulatory submission by the end of this year."
