Efficacy and Safety of the Biosimilar Natalizumab PB006 in Comparison to Tysabri®

2019-10-10 09:39:44 | BioPortfolio


This is a multi-center, randomized, parallel arm, double-blind study with a total duration of subjects' participation of 48 weeks. Approximately 260 participants with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis will be randomized to receive 12 doses of either PB006 or EU-licensed Natalizumab.


This is a Phase 3 multicenter, double-blind, active-controlled, randomized, parallel-group study to assess the equivalence in efficacy and similarity in safety of biosimilar PB006 compared to Tysabri in patients with RRMS.

All eligible patients will be randomly assigned to one of two treatment groups in a 1:1 ratio, to receive a total of twelve intravenous (IV) infusion of either PB006 or Tysabri at a dose of 300 mg at each intravenous (IV) infusion administered with every single one intravenous (IV) infusion administereds every 4 weeks of either PB006 or Tysabri at a dose of 300 mg starting at visit 1 (week 0) through visit 12 (week 44), for a total of 12 infusions. The End-of-Study Visit (visit 13, week 48) will be performed 4 weeks after the last infusion

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A form of multiple sclerosis characterized by a progressive deterioration in neurologic function which is in contrast to the more typical relapsing remitting form. If the clinical course is free of distinct remissions, it is referred to as primary progressive multiple sclerosis. When the progressive decline is punctuated by acute exacerbations, it is referred to as progressive relapsing multiple sclerosis. The term secondary progressive multiple sclerosis is used when relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis evolves into the chronic progressive form. (From Ann Neurol 1994;36 Suppl:S73-S79; Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp903-914)

A non-glycosylated form of interferon beta-1 that has a serine at position 17. It is used in the treatment of both RELAPSING-REMITTING MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS and CHRONIC PROGRESSIVE MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS.

A random polymer of L-ALANINE, L-GLUTAMIC ACID, L-LYSINE, and L-TYROSINE that structurally resembles MYELIN BASIC PROTEIN. It is used in the treatment of RELAPSING-REMITTING MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS.

An autoimmune disorder mainly affecting young adults and characterized by destruction of myelin in the central nervous system. Pathologic findings include multiple sharply demarcated areas of demyelination throughout the white matter of the central nervous system. Clinical manifestations include visual loss, extra-ocular movement disorders, paresthesias, loss of sensation, weakness, dysarthria, spasticity, ataxia, and bladder dysfunction. The usual pattern is one of recurrent attacks followed by partial recovery (see MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS, RELAPSING-REMITTING), but acute fulminating and chronic progressive forms (see MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS, CHRONIC PROGRESSIVE) also occur. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p903)

The most common clinical variant of MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS, characterized by recurrent acute exacerbations of neurologic dysfunction followed by partial or complete recovery. Common clinical manifestations include loss of visual (see OPTIC NEURITIS), motor, sensory, or bladder function. Acute episodes of demyelination may occur at any site in the central nervous system, and commonly involve the optic nerves, spinal cord, brain stem, and cerebellum. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp903-914)
