Quarterly and Recent Highlights


Pipeline Updates:


VTP-43742 in Autoimmune Disorders


·      Reported positive top-line results from the healthy human volunteer multiple ascending dose clinical trial of VTP-43742. In this double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled trial examining the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic profile of multiple oral doses of VTP-43742 in 40 healthy human volunteers, VTP-43742 was shown to be safe and generally well tolerated. No serious adverse events were reported, and all study subjects completed the full 10 days of dosing. In an ex vivo assay, VTP-43742 suppressed the RORγt dependent production of the pro-inflammatory cytokine IL-17A in blood obtained from study subjects. Those who received VTP-43742 showed a dose-dependent suppression of IL-17A production by more than 90 percent sustained for a full 24 hours in all but the lowest dose cohort.


·      Advanced the second part of a multiple ascending dose, clinical proof-of-concept trial of VTP-43742 in psoriatic patients. In this study, Vitae is evaluating the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics and clinical efficacy of multiple ascending doses of VTP-43742 in patients with moderate to severe psoriasis. The primary endpoint measure will be percent change from baseline in the PASI (Psoriasis Area and Severity Index) score at four weeks. The Company has closed enrollment at 34 psoriatic patients and believes that the totality of the data from the 34 psoriatic patients, including clinical efficacy and accelerated biomarker data, will be sufficient to determine next steps in the program. Vitae is currently analyzing the data and expects to announce top-line clinical efficacy and preliminary biomarker results by the end of the first quarter of 2016.
