Kythera Biopharmaceuticals Inc Announces Positive Interim Results from Open-Label Phase IIIb Study of ATX-101

Saturday, 6 Apr 2013 10:30am EDT 

Kythera Biopharmaceuticals Inc announced positive interim results from a Phase IIIb, multicenter, open-label study (ATX-101-11-26) of ATX-101 during the “Innovations and Renewals” session of the 11th Anti-Aging Medicine World Congress (AMWC), April 4-6, Monte Carlo, Monaco. The study, presented by investigator Susan Weinkle, MD, FAAD, evaluated the safety and efficacy of ATX-101, a potential first-in-class, non-surgical, injectable drug in Phase III trials for the reduction of unwanted submental fat (SMF), commonly known as “double chin.” The results found that ATX-101 is well tolerated and may be effective in reducing SMF by both clinician- and patient-reported outcome measures. ATX-101 is a proprietary formulation of synthetically-derived deoxycholic acid (DCA), a molecule found in the body that helps break down dietary fat. In this open-label Phase IIIb study, interim results three months after the last ATX-101 treatment are outlined below. Observations were made using validated rating instruments for which one-grade changes are considered to be clinically meaningful: Reduction of submental fat 87% of patients achieved at least a one-grade improvement from baseline on the Clinician-Reported Submental Fat Rating Scale (CR-SMFRS) Similarly, 83% of patients achieved at least a one-grade improvement on the Patient-Reported Submental Fat Rating Scale (PR-SMFRS).
