RXi Pharmaceuticals Announces mRNA Data of an Additional Cohort in the Second Phase 1 Multi-Dose Study with RXI-109, Extending the Dose Response Following Treatment in the Initial 2-week Period
Date:12/4/2013

WESTBOROUGH, Mass., Dec. 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- RXi Pharmaceuticals Corporation (OTCQX: RXII), a biotechnology company focused on discovering, developing and commercializing innovative therapies addressing major unmet medical needs using RNA-targeted technologies, today announced additional results from their second placebo-controlled Phase 1 study with RXI‑109, an sd-rxRNA® compound that targets Connective Tissue Growth Factor (CTGF), and is being developed for the treatment of abnormal dermal scars such as hypertrophic scars and keloids in conjunction with scar revision surgery.

In this study, subjects received small skin incisions in their abdomen and were treated with three intradermal doses of RXI‑109 over a 2-week period.  The dose escalating portion of the study consisted of four cohorts of three healthy volunteers each.  An additional 5th cohort was also added at the highest dose, in which the treatment period was delayed by two weeks. Subjects received RXI‑109 on one side of the abdomen, and placebo on the other side. Subjects were monitored for safety and local and systemic side effects over a total study period of 84 days. Multiple dermal injections were well tolerated at all doses, and treatment with RXI‑109 resulted in dose-dependent silencing of CTGF mRNA in the treated areas. In the additional 4th cohort of this study, three doses of 10 mg dose per incision over the initial 2-week period following the incision averaged approximately 50% reduction of CTGF mRNA expression compared to placebo when measured three days after the last dose. In the 5th cohort, where the dosing period with 10 mg RXI-109 per incision was delayed by 2 weeks after the incisions were made, no additional benefit was seen on m
