Results From Study Show Promising Efficacy and Safety Results for Corthera's Relaxin in Acute Heart Failure
Date:3/29/2009

Data Presented at Late-Breaking Clinical Trials Session at ACC 58th Annual Scientific Session; Results Published On-Line in The Lancet

SAN MATEO¿ Calif.¿ March 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Corthera Inc. today announced that results from Pre-RELAX-AHF, the Phase II portion of a Phase II/III multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled international study, demonstrated promising efficacy and safety for relaxin, the company's investigational drug for treatment of acute heart failure (AHF). The report containing the detailed study results is being published on-line in the medical journal, The Lancet.

The data from 234 patients in eight countries showed that when administered with standard-of-care therapy for acute heart failure, relaxin caused rapid, substantial and sustained relief from dyspnea (breathlessness). Relaxin also demonstrated consistent trends in improvement of the hospital course of patients, prevention of heart failure worsening during hospitalization, shortening of in hospital stay and improved longer-term outcomes following discharge when compared to placebo. John R. Teerlink, M.D., professor of medicine, University of California San Francisco, Director of Heart Failure, Veterans Affairs Medical Center, San Francisco and co-principal investigator of the study, presented the findings today at a late-breaking clinical trials session at the American College of Cardiology's (ACC) 58th Annual Scientific Session in Orlando, Fla.

"The results of the study clearly indicated favorable treatment effects on symptoms, signs and outcomes in patients hospitalized with AHF," said Teerlink. "The use of relaxin led to considerable improvement in dyspnea when compared to placebo and lasted up to 14 days, longer than any therapy studied. In this study, relaxin administration was safe and well tolerated. These results provide a clear direction for the Phase III study."
