Shield Therapeutics Files Investigational New Drug Application for ST10 for the Treatment of Iron Deficiency in Chronic Kidney Disease
Date:11/12/2013

LONDON, November 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Shield Therapeutics, an independent specialty pharmaceutical company focused on the development of mineral-derived hospital pharmaceuticals, today announces that it has filed an investigational new drug (IND) application with the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to initiate a Phase 3 pivotal study of ST10, its novel oral iron-replacement therapy, for the treatment of iron deficiency anaemia (IDA) in pre-dialysis patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD).

The British National Formulary states: 'parenteral iron does not produce a faster response than oral iron provided the oral iron is taken reliably and is absorbed adequately.'  ST10 aims to deliver this compelling alternative to prescribers, patients and payors, in addition to avoiding the inconvenience, high cost and life-threatening hypersensitivity risks associated with IV infusions.

The 16-week prospective, multicentre, randomised, double-blind, placebo controlled AEGIS 3 study will enrol pre-dialysis CKD patients in the USA who have a diagnosis with iron deficiency anaemia.  ST10 is also currently being investigated in a pivotal Phase 3 study as a potential treatment for IDA in inflammatory bowel disease, top-line results from which are expected towards the
