Food & Drug Administration (FDA) has provided Orphan Drug Designation to ALN-TTR02 as a therapeutic for the treatment of familial amyloidotic polyneuropathy (FAP), one of the predominant clinical manifestations of ATTR.
The current findings show that certain patient populations, including those with genetically linked Alzheimer's and other familial amyloidotic diseases, also show a reduction in soluble APP levels in their CSF.
Further, evidence from other systemic amyloidotic diseases shows that as little as a 50 percent reduction of the disease-causing protein can result in disease improvement or stabilization.
Familial amyloidotic polyneuropathy in Sweden: a pedigree analysis.
The cattle TSEs include: a) typical BSE, which is the priori strain identified during the BSE epidemic in Europe during the 1980s; b) H-type BSE, which is an uncommon type that was originally found in France (12); and c) L-type BSE, also called bovine amyloidotic spongiform encephalopathy (BASE), which is a rare form of BSE first identified in Italy (13).
TSE], together with amyloid plaques, and a Western blot pattern that differed from the stereotypic pattern seen in typical BSE left little doubt about the probability that a new "atypical strain" had been identified (bovine amyloidotic spongiform encephalopathy [BASE]).
This situation has been reinforced by a second bovine amyloidotic spongiform encephalopathy found in cattle in Italy (8).
We also expect to initiate a Phase II study with ALN-TTR02 in familial amyloidotic polyneuropathy, or FAP, patients in the second half of this year with the start of pivotal trials with ALN-TTR02 in 2013.
The data were presented at the VIIIth International Symposium on Familial Amyloidotic Polyneuropathy being held November 20 - 22, 2011 in Kumamoto, Japan.
