Sorbent Therapeutics' CLP1001 Improves Heart Failure Symptoms In Phase 2 Clinical Study
Date:5/22/2012

Officer.  "CLP1001 could ultimately be used alongside standard medications to improve the physical functionality and overall quality of life of these heart failure patients."

About the Phase 2a Study
The double-blind, randomized, parallel, placebo-controlled study examined the effect of CLP1001 over eight weeks in 111 heart failure patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). 

CLP1001-treated patients achieved significantly greater weight loss – an accepted measurement of fluid retention – as compared to placebo over the first two weeks of treatment.  This trend continued through the end of the study.  After eight weeks of treatment, a greater number of patients experienced marked or moderately improved breathing in the CLP1001 group and the average distance walked in the 6-Minute Walk Test was larger in patients receiving CLP1001 versus the placebo population.  CLP1001 improved functional heart capacity as assessed by the New York Heart Association (NYHA) classification by at least one class compared to the placebo group (48.8% vs. 17.4%; p=0.002).  Similar results favoring the CLP1001 group were seen when examining quality of life.

These data were presented by Dr. Costanzo during the Late-Breaking Trials 2 Special Session at the ESC Heart Failure Congress in a talk titled "A Double-Blind, Randomized, Parallel, Placebo Controlled Study Examining the Effect of Cross-linked Polyelectrolyte (CLP) in Heart Failure Patients with Chronic Kidney Disease – Sorbent  CTST-21."
