Romosozumab Phase 2 Data Published In New England Journal Of Medicine Show Significant Increases In Bone Mineral Density At Both Spine And Hip
Date:1/1/2014

spine, total hip and femoral neck regions (all p<0.001). The largest increases were observed with the romosozumab 210 mg once-monthly dose, with mean increases compared with baseline of 11.3 percent at the lumbar spine, 4.1 percent at the total hip and 3.7 percent at the femoral neck.

Additionally, in exploratory analyses, BMD gains were significantly greater than active comparators at month 12, with romosozumab treatment achieving a mean increase of 11.3 percent at the lumbar spine compared to increases of 4.1 percent and 7.1 percent at the same region achieved with FOSAMAX and FORTEO, respectively. At the total hip, romosozumab treatment increased BMD 4.1 percent, while observed gains with FOSAMAX were 1.9 percent and with FORTEO were 1.3 percent (all p<0.001).1

The comparators to romosozumab were placebo, oral FOSAMAX (70 mg weekly) and subcutaneous FORTEO (20 μg daily), both of which were open-label.1 

Adverse events were similar across groups, except for mild, generally non-recurring injection site reactions observed more frequently with romosozumab compared to placebo, but with no observed dose-related relationship. Most common adverse events included mild upper respiratory tract infection, pain in the back and joints, and headache. These reactions did not lead to study drug discontinuation or study withdrawal; the safety of romosozumab will be further addressed in subsequent larger studies.1

"There remains a significant need for additional treatment options that form new bone. Romosozumab is designed to stimulate bone formation, which makes it different from most available treatments that reduce bone resorption," said Prof. Dr. Iris Loew-Friedrich, chief medical officer, UCB. "We are encouraged by the emerging efficacy and safety profile, and look forward to further investigating its potential in the ongoing global Phase 3 clinical program
