The initial information, depicting the initial six patients after half a year's treatment of 20 mg/kg iluzanebart (formerly referred to as VGL101), reinforces the beneficial safety and tolerability track record, as already observed in healthy volunteers. Additionally, these figures highlighted definite target interaction and subsequent pharmacological movement at 20 mg/kg, in line with the company’s past Phase 1 information from fit volunteers.
Beneficial trend changes were watched at half a year on magnetic resonance imaging and neurofilament light disease progression markers in unique ALSP patients. Ongoing findings from the Company's ongoing natural history examination, ILLUMINATE, continuously offer profound understanding into MRI and NfL biomarkers and backs soluble colony stimulating factor 1 receptor as a potential primary biomarker of ALSP disease pathology.
"The findings reflect the commitment and proficiency of our exceptional crew, who bring an unshakeable commitment to patients to their duties," concluded Dr. Magovčević-Liebisch. "To everyone who aided this advancement, including our trial members, their caretakers, and the clinical examiners, we give our deepest gratitude.
We anticipate revealing more information from the IGNITE trial, including results from all patients in both the 20 mg/kg and 40 mg/kg groups at half a year, in the third quarter of 2024."
