     449  0 Kommentare Arbutus’ Imdusiran with Short Course Interferon Achieves Sustained Undetectable HBsAg, a Necessity for HBV Functional Cure

    At the end of treatment, 33.3% of patients receiving imdusiran for 48 weeks, interferon (IFN) for 24 weeks and ongoing nucleoside analogue (NA) therapy achieved undetectable levels of HBsAg that were maintained in 100% of these patients 24 weeks after completing imdusiran and IFN treatment

    Of the patients who have stopped all therapy, six still have undetectable levels of HBsAg and HBV DNA, with two of these patients reaching 12 weeks off all therapy

    All six patients have seroconverted and have high titers of anti-HBsAg antibodies

    These new Phase 2a data were presented at the European Association for the Study of the Liver (EASL) Congress 2024

    WARMINSTER, Pa., June 05, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Arbutus Biopharma Corporation (Nasdaq: ABUS) (“Arbutus” or the “Company”), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company leveraging its extensive virology expertise to develop a functional cure for people with chronic hepatitis B virus (cHBV) infection, today announced new data from its Phase 2a clinical trial IM-PROVE I (AB-729-201) showing that imdusiran, the Company’s RNAi therapeutic, and 24 weeks of pegylated interferon alfa-2α (IFN), a standard-of-care immunomodulator, added to ongoing nucleos(t)ide analogue (NA) therapy, reduced HBsAg levels and led to sustained HBsAg loss in some patients with cHBV during and after treatment. These data were presented today in the Viral Hepatitis B and D: New therapies, unapproved therapies or strategies poster session, and will be featured during a poster tour on Thursday, June 6, 2024, at the European Association for the Study of the Liver (EASL) Congress.

    Select key data from this Phase 2a clinical trial include:

    • Some patients who received either 48 or 24 weeks of imdusiran and 24 weeks of IFN with their ongoing NA therapy achieved undetectable HBsAg at the end-of-treatment (EOT) (33.3%, n=4/12; and 23.1%, n=3/13, respectively) that was sustained 24 weeks after completing imdusiran and IFN treatment (33.3%, n=4/12 and 15.4%, n=2/13, respectively). All six patients with sustained HBsAg loss have seroconverted with high anti-HBsAg antibody levels (43.8 to >1,000 mIU/mL suggestive of immune control) and are being followed for maintenance of both undetectable levels of HBsAg and HBV DNA for 24 weeks while off all therapy to assess for a functional cure.
    • Two of the six patients have reached 12 weeks off all therapy while maintaining both undetectable levels of HBsAg and HBV DNA. The remaining four patients are at various timepoints less than 12 weeks off therapy with undetectable levels of HBsAg and HBV DNA.
    • A total of 21 patients from across the four treatment cohorts have discontinued all therapy and are in the follow-up period. One patient that received 12 weeks of IFN treatment with imdusiran and NA therapy has maintained undetectable levels of HBsAg and HBV DNA while off all therapy for six months, thereby achieving a functional cure.
