Shield Therapeutics Completes Recruitment to Pivotal Phase 3 Programme for Treatment of Iron Deficiency
Date:6/23/2013

LONDON, June 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Shield Therapeutics, the independent specialty mineral medicines pharmaceutical company, today announces that it has completed recruitment of patients into its pivotal Phase 3 programme of ST10 for the treatment of iron-deficient anaemia.  ST10 is a novel form of ferric iron taken orally.

Patients with inflammatory bowel disease and anaemia have been recruited and randomised when oral ferrous products have been ineffective due to intolerance and/or inadequate therapeutic benefit.  The primary endpoint of this pivotal international, multi-centre programme is haemoglobin change after 12 weeks' treatment with ST10 compared to placebo.  Subjects have been included from expert centres in Austria, Germany, Hungary and the UK and either randomised to receive 30mg of ST10 twice a day, or a matched placebo capsule.  Following the randomised treatment period there is an open-label phase that allows all patients to be treated with ST10 for an additional year.  Other iron therapies have not been permitted during the study.  

Shield Therapeutics expects to report top-line results from the study at the end of Q4 2013 and anticipates these results will provide confirmatory pivotal clinical data that may form the basis of an MAA submission to the European regulatory authorities in 2014.  The data is also expected to form part of a subsequent NDA submission in the USA.

"Inflammatory bowel disease is one of the most prevalent diseases managed by gastroenterologists.  Approximately half of all IBD patients develop iron deficiency and that can readily progress to more severe anaemia, which is the lead
