  2. Data published in Science Translational Medicine

    —Broad-spectrum antiviral activity against multiple RNA viruses

    RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C., June 10, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BioCryst Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ:BCRX) today announced new data published in Science Translational Medicine show, in a primate model, that galidesivir was safe, provided post-exposure prevention of Zika viral replication across a range of doses, and rapidly reduced viral loads to undetectable levels when dosed up to 72 hours after infection with Zika virus.

    —Broad-spectrum antiviral activity against multiple RNA viruses

    RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C., June 10, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BioCryst Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ:BCRX) today announced new data published in Science Translational Medicine show, in a primate model, that galidesivir was safe, provided post-exposure prevention of Zika viral replication across a range of doses, and rapidly reduced viral loads to undetectable levels when dosed up to 72 hours after infection with Zika virus.

    "Galidesivir reduced Zika virus replication from the first dose administered without impairing the adaptive immune response that protects against subsequent infection. These data provide an encouraging foundation for studying SARS-CoV-2, another RNA-replicating virus, in this same animal species," said James B. Whitney, Ph.D., assistant professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School and lead author of the study.

    "The rapid reduction in Zika viral load we see in this robust animal model further demonstrates the broad antiviral potential of galidesivir against multiple pathogens. The current COVID-19 pandemic has reinforced the urgent global need for effective broad-spectrum antiviral therapies to combat these outbreaks," said Dr. William Sheridan, chief medical officer of BioCryst.

    Galidesivir is an investigational broad-spectrum antiviral drug that was safe and well tolerated in previously reported Phase 1 trials in healthy subjects. Galidesivir has demonstrated broad-spectrum activity in vitro against more than 20 RNA viruses in nine different families, including the coronaviruses that cause MERS and SARS. A Phase 1 trial to assess the safety, clinical impact and antiviral effects of galidesivir in patients with COVID-19 is currently enrolling patients across multiple sites in Brazil.

    Zika Study Details

    In the Zika virus study of galidesivir, 70 Rhesus macaques were studied with different routes of infection, different doses of galidesivir, and galidesivir treatment initiated at different time points after infection.  Endpoints included Zika virus RNA quantity in plasma, saliva, urine, and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), and a variety of immunologic measurements, including antibody seroconversion to Zika virus.  Galidesivir was safe and showed robust antiviral activity at all stages of Zika infection and at multiple different doses.  Zika-infected animals that were treated with galidesivir developed an immune response to Zika that was protective against subsequent Zika re-challenge.

    About Galidesivir (BCX4430)

    Galidesivir, a broad-spectrum antiviral drug, is an adenosine nucleoside analog that acts to block viral RNA polymerase. It is in advanced development for the treatment of COVID-19, Marburg virus disease and Yellow Fever. Phase 1 clinical safety and pharmacokinetics trials of galidesivir by both intravenous and intramuscular routes of administration in healthy subjects have been completed. In animal studies, galidesivir has demonstrated activity against a variety of serious pathogens, including Ebola, Marburg, Yellow Fever and Zika viruses. Galidesivir has also demonstrated broad-spectrum activity in vitro against more than 20 RNA viruses in nine different families, including coronaviruses, filoviruses, togaviruses, bunyaviruses, arenaviruses, paramyxoviruses, and flaviviruses. BioCryst is developing galidesivir in collaboration with U.S. government agencies and other institutions.

    RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C., June 06, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BioCryst Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ:BCRX) today presented findings from two patient surveys conducted to gain insights into patients' current hereditary angioedema (HAE) treatment expectations, experience and satisfaction. Patient-reported attack history shows patients treated with current injectable or infused prophylactic medications (Takhzyro®, Haegarda®, Cinryze®) continue to experience breakthrough attacks with a mean ranging from 0.9 to 1.8 attacks over the three months prior to survey.

    In addition, the majority of patients surveyed did not expect to have zero attacks even when taking prophylaxis therapy.

    The data were presented at the European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology (EAACI) Digital Congress.

    "While the injectable and infused medications introduced over the past 12 years have provided added prophylactic attack control for HAE patients, most patients in the study continue to experience breakthrough attacks, and medication adherence continues to be a challenge. HAE patients have indicated an interest in new preventative treatment options, with the majority agreeing that they would prefer an oral medication, despite liking their current prophylactic medication," said Jinky Rosselli, vice president of global business analysis and operations at BioCryst, who conducted the research.  

    Study Methods and Results

    Study participants were U.S. adult patients with a diagnosis of Type I or Type II HAE.  Patients participated in surveys in 2018 (n=75) and 2019 (n=100). Two patients participated in both surveys. The patient surveys were conducted anonymously in compliance with the EphMRA code of conduct. 

    • In the 2019 survey, 85 percent of patients reported taking at least one medicine to prevent HAE attacks, compared to 64 percent in the 2018 survey.

       
    • The majority (89 percent) of patients using prophylaxis in the 2019 survey reported using at least one of the three most commonly prescribed injectable or infused prophylactic therapies.

       
    • Over the three months prior to the survey, these patients reported a mean of 0.9, 1.6 and 1.8 attacks while taking Haegarda®, Cinryze® and Takhzyro®, respectively.  Patients taking these injectable or infused therapies reported similar attack rates in the 2018 study.



    • In the 2019 survey, 21 percent of patients using prophylaxis reported the expectation to have zero attacks over the next 12 months.

  5. RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C., June 06, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BioCryst Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ:BCRX) today announced new data from the APeX-2 and APeX-S clinical trials, which showed that hereditary angioedema (HAE) patients taking oral, once-daily berotralstat experienced sustained decreases in their attack frequency and improvements in quality of life (QoL) scores over 48 weeks. Berotralstat was also safe and generally well-tolerated over 48 weeks in both APeX-2 and APeX-S.

    The data were presented at the European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology (EAACI) Digital Congress.

    RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C., June 06, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BioCryst Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ:BCRX) today announced new data from the APeX-2 and APeX-S clinical trials, which showed that hereditary angioedema (HAE) patients taking oral, once-daily berotralstat experienced sustained decreases in their attack frequency and improvements in quality of life (QoL) scores over 48 weeks. Berotralstat was also safe and generally well-tolerated over 48 weeks in both APeX-2 and APeX-S.

    The data were presented at the European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology (EAACI) Digital Congress.

    "As HAE patients continue in our long‑term clinical trials, we are seeing reductions in attack rate and increases in QoL scores which highlight the impact oral, once-daily berotralstat could have in reducing the burden of disease for patients currently dependent on injectable or infused prophylaxis options," said Dr. William Sheridan, chief medical officer of BioCryst. 

    • In APeX-2, 31 patients who were randomized to 150 mg of oral, once-daily berotralstat at the beginning of the study and completed 48 weeks of therapy had a mean baseline attack rate of 2.9 attacks per month, which declined to 1.5 attacks per month after one month and to 1.0 attack per month at 12 months.

       
    • In APeX-S, patients completing 48 weeks of treatment on 150 mg of berotralstat (n=73) had a median attack rate of zero attacks per month in six of the 12 months, including month 12 (week 48).

       
    • The low attack rate experienced by HAE patients on 150 mg of oral, once-daily berotralstat reduced the burden of disease and translated into clinically meaningful improvements in mean angioedema quality of life (AE-QoL) total score, as measured by the disease-specific AE-QoL questionnaire.  This persisted through month 12 (week 48) in the APeX-S trial.

       
      • Improvements in mean change from baseline AE-QoL total score exceeding the minimum clinically important difference (MCID) of six points were observed by week four and at week 48 the mean AE-QoL total score for the berotralstat 150-mg treatment group had decreased by 14.7 points compared with baseline.

    An integrated 48-week analysis across both APeX-2 and APeX-S showed no new safety findings. Berotralstat was safe and generally well tolerated in a total of 342 patients with a total of 232 patient-years of daily oral dosing. The most common adverse event was the common cold, which occurred with similar frequency in berotralstat and placebo patients. Gastrointestinal events led to discontinuation of berotralstat in 3.2 percent of patients. Drug-related serious adverse events occurred in three of 342 subjects (0.9 percent) and resolved after stopping or interrupting berotralstat dosing.
