Phase IIb Study of Vanoxerine Shows Strong Safety and Statistically Significant Efficacy Signals for Treatment of Atrial Fibrillation
Date:11/18/2013

DALLAS, Nov. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ChanRx, a pharmaceutical company developing medicines for cardiovascular diseases, today announced positive safety and statistically significant efficacy data from a Phase IIb study of vanoxerine (GBR-12909), a drug in development for the treatment of atrial fibrillation. The data were presented yesterday at the American Heart Association 2013 Scientific Sessions.

"Atrial fibrillation affects millions of patients in the US annually, causing substantial morbidity," said Peter Kowey, MD, Professor of Medicine & Pharmacology, Jefferson School of Medicine and Lankenau Institute for Medical Research. "Currently, drugs that correct this arrhythmia are inadequate and carry safety risks including life threatening arrhythmias, long-term toxicity and liver failure. Both the patients with this condition and the physicians treating them could benefit greatly from a drug that could safely treat this arrhythmia."

In the randomized, placebo-controlled trial, 104 patients presenting with symptomatic atrial fibrillation or atrial flutter of recent onset were assigned to one of three doses of vanoxerine or placebo. Vanoxerine was found to be well tolerated at all doses.  Importantly, no episodes of monomorphic or polymorphic ventricular tachycardia were seen. Ventricular tachycardia is a potentially life-threatening arrhythmia that can lead to sudden death. The majority of currently marketed drugs used for atrial fibrillation have a risk of polymorphic ventricular tachycardia.

"Historically, drugs to treat atrial fibrillation have failed, not because they are ineffective, but because they have significant safety issues," noted Arthur "Buzz" Brown, MD, PhD, founder and CEO of ChanTest and founder and CSO of ChanRx. "Thus far, the clinical data showing a lack of pro-arrhythmic effects for vanoxerine are extremely promis
