"Lipigon announces positive top-line data from phase I clinical study of Lipisense" 

Lipigon Pharmaceuticals AB ("Lipigon") today announced positive top-line results from a phase I SAD study of its investigational medicine Lipisense in healthy volunteers.
 

Lipisense is an RNA drug candidate developed to lower blood lipid triglycerides in patients with severely elevated levels by preventing the production of the protein ANGPTL4.

Lipigon reports that the phase I SAD (Single Ascending Dose) study demonstrated that Lipisense has a favorable safety and pharmacokinetic profile. Lipisense was well tolerated, with no serious adverse events reported.

The SAD part included 20 healthy study participants, and the primary goal was to evaluate safety and tolerability after an injection of Lipisense at three different dose levels or placebo.

Since no serious adverse effects were reported, the company has also decided to add a fifth cohort of healthy subjects at a 72 mg dose in the SAD study.

"We are happy to have reached another critical milestone in the Lipisense development. Our candidate drug is well tolerated and not causing adverse effects. Thus, we can start the MAD part of our phase I study. Thanks to this clean safety profile, we have also decided to add a higher dose group. These results mean a substantial de-risking for the future clinical development plan," says CEO Stefan K. Nilsson.

"Our development plan leaves as little time as possible between studies, and we are already in preparation for phase II clinical studies. It is not unlikely that we will be able to start the phase II study next year," says Stefan K. Nilsson.

Lipigon presenterade i förra veckan resultat från den pågående fas 1-studiens första del (SAD) med bolagets lipidsänkande läkemedelskandidat Lipisense. Studien uppnådde sitt viktigaste syfte där Lipisense tolererades väl hos patienterna och inga allvarliga biverkningar rapporterades. Trots denna goda nyhet sätter Analysguiden ett motiverat värde om 7,0 (11,6) kronor på Lipigon, vilket beror på fortsatt svagt börsklimat.
