Principia Announces Update to Ongoing Phase 2 Clinical Trial in Patients with ITP
The ongoing open-label, dose-finding clinical trial investigating PRN1008 in patients with ITP who are refractory or relapsed with no available treatment options, was designed to test safety and activity across multiple doses – 200mg once-a-day, 400mg once-a-day, 300mg twice-a-day and 400mg twice-a-day. The protocol has been modified to add a long-term extension cohort for responders and, if needed, to enroll additional patients to inform the design of the Phase 3 program. The company plans to announce top-line data from this trial during the fourth quarter of 2019.

PRN1008, a reversible covalent BTK inhibitor, is being evaluated in a Phase 3 clinical trial in patients with pemphigus, an orphan autoimmune disease, and in a Phase 2 clinical trial in patients with immune thrombocytopenia, a rare hematological disease.
