RIBOMIC, Inc., a clinical stage pharmaceutical company specializing in aptamer therapeutics (TOKYO:4591), today announced that it submitted an Investigational New Drug Application (IND) for an observational study to the Pharmaceuticals and Medical Devices Agency (PMDA) in Japan. The purpose of the observational study is to obtain clinical basic data, including height growth, and to select subjects for the early phase II study.

If there is no comment from PMDA for 14 days after submission, the observational study will be initiated.

Overview of the study

Subjects

Patients with achondroplasia

Target number of subjects

14

Purpose of the study

The purpose of this study is to obtain clinical basic data including height growth in children (aged 5-14 years) with achondroplasia, which will enable the evaluation of efficacy and safety in the continuous early Phase II study using RBM-007 as a comparative data, and to select subjects for the early phase II study appropriately.

Study design

Observational study (no therapeutic intervention)

Observation period

About RBM-007

RBM-007 is a novel nucleic acid medicine (oligonucleotide-based aptamer) developed in-house at RIBOMIC’s research facilities in Tokyo. RBM-007 has been shown to have potent effects in limiting excessive interactions between fibroblast growth factors, which are known to cause achondroplasia.

About Achondroplasia

Achondroplasia is a rare disease characterized by short stature (adult height of approximately 130 cm for males and approximately 125 cm for females) with short limbs. Achondroplasia has no known cure, and is designated as an intractable disease by the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare in Japan. This disease results mainly from a genetic defect in FGFR3 (fibroblast growth factor type 3 receptor). This genetic change causes the receptor to be overly active to growth factors such as FGF2, which leads to reduced growth of chondrocytes, resulting in a short stature. Achondroplasia occurs in a frequency of 1 in approximately 25,000 normal live births and is estimated to affect approximately 250,000 people worldwide.

By inhibiting the binding of FGF2 to FGFR3, RBM-007 has demonstrated therapeutic effects in studies using animal models of achondroplasia and patient-derived iPS (induced pluripotent stem) cells.
