Sanofi and Regeneron Announce Publication of Positive Phase 2a Results of Dupilumab in Asthma in the New England Journal of Medicine
Date:5/21/2013

rovements were observed for lung function and other asthma control parameters, such as forced expiratory volume over one second (FEV1) (difference from baseline to week 12 between dupilumab and placebo of 0.27 L, p<0.001). 

Treatment-emergent adverse events (AEs) were reported by a similar proportion of patients in both groups (76.9% placebo; 80.8% dupilumab).  AEs were generally non-specific and of mild-to-moderate intensity.  The most common AEs for placebo and dupilumab were injection-site reaction (9.6% and 28.8%), nasopharyngitis (3.8% and 13.5%), upper respiratory tract infection (17.3% and 13.5%), headache (5.8% and 11.5%) and nausea (1.9% and 7.7%).

"Despite existing therapies, a significant number of patients with moderate-to-severe, persistent allergic asthma are not optimally controlled, which puts them at risk of poor clinical outcomes.  These patients contribute to the significant economic burden of asthma," said Sally Wenzel , M.D., Professor of Medicine and Director of the Asthma Institute at the University of Pittsburgh and lead investigator of this trial.  "These encouraging data support the potential role of IL-4/IL-13 blockade in an important subset of asthma patients and warrant continued clinical investigation."

"Through blockade of IL-4R alpha, dupilumab modulates signaling of both the IL-4 and IL-13 pathways, which have been implicated in the pathophysiology of Th2 mediated, or allergic, diseases such as asthma," said George D. Yancopoulos , M.D., Ph. D., Chief Scientific Officer of Regeneron and President of Regeneron Laboratories.  "These data, combined with our previously-reported positive proof-of-concept clinical results of dupilumab in atopic dermatitis, support the idea that blocking the IL-4/IL-13 pathway may be an effective mechanism to treat multiple allergic conditions.  We look forward to initiating P
