Research & development update

Envarsus® in kidney transplant patients

Veloxis has conducted two Phase III studies of Envarsus® in kidney transplant recipients as the basis for its development programme for Envarsus® as a once-daily agent for the prophylaxis of organ rejection in kidney transplantation. The first of these studies, the 3001 Study, was a non-inferiority study performed in 326 stable kidney transplant recipients, and was successfully completed in 2011, meeting its primary efficacy and safety endpoints when compared to Prograf® (tacrolimus, Astellas Pharma Inc.). The second study, Study 3002 was a randomized, double-blind, multicenter study that compared once-daily Envarsus® against twice-daily Prograf® in 543 de novo adult kidney transplant patients and met its primary efficacy and primary safety endpoints. The primary endpoint of the study was a composite endpoint of treatment failure (biopsy-proven acute rejection, graft failure, loss to follow up or death) that was evaluated after a 12-month treatment period to demonstrate the non-inferiority of Envarsus® compared to Prograf®. The treatment failure rate for Envarsus® was 18.3% compared to 19.6% for Prograf®, and the difference between the treatments was well within the 10% pre-specified non-inferiority margin. The primary safety analyses were the differences between Envarsus® and Prograf® treatment groups at Month 12 (Day 360) with respect to the incidence of adverse events (AEs) and the incidence of predefined potentially clinically significant laboratory measures including: fasting plasma glucose; platelet count; white blood cell (WBC) count; aminotransaminases; total cholesterol; low density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol; triglycerides; and estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR). In all instances, there were no statistically significant differences between the two treatments. Specifically, renal function was similar between the two groups at 12 months, as was the incidence of malignancy, infections and new onset diabetes during this period. On June 29, 2014, Veloxis announced the results of the second year of blinded therapy in this study and the results were similar to the one-year results with Envarsus® continuing to demonstrate non-inferiority to Prograf® on the primary endpoint at the two year time point.

In addition to the pivotal Phase III studies, Veloxis is conducting a series of Phase IIIb/IV studies to further evaluate potential differences in clinical profile provided by Envarsus®’ unique PK profile. The first study is the STRATO (Switching kidney TRAnsplant patients with Tremor to LCP-tacrO) study of Envarsus® in kidney transplant recipients experiencing drug-induced tremors. The STRATO study was designed to explore whether a conversion of patients who have symptomatic tremor from treatment with standard immediate release twice-daily tacrolimus capsules to extended release once-daily Envarsus® tablets leads to a measurable improvement in tremor. Results from this study demonstrated that patients switched to Envarsus® demonstrated a statistically significant improvement in hand tremors based on improvement in the FTM Tremor rating scale. Additionally, both the patient- and physician-reported global assessments demonstrated significant overall improvements following the switch to Envarsus®.

Additionally, the ASERTAA (A Study of Extended Release Tacrolimus in African-Americans) Phase IIIb study of Envarsus® in kidney transplant recipients is ongoing. The ASERTAA study is designed to compare the pharmacokinetics of Envarsus® given once-daily to generic twice daily tacrolimus capsules in stable African-American renal transplant patients. Results from this study are anticipated to be available in 2015.

Envarsus® Regulatory Strategy

On 29 April, 2013 a Marketing Authorization Application (MAA) was submitted by Veloxis to the European Medicines Agency (EMA) seeking approval to market Envarsus® for the prevention of organ rejection in transplant patients in the European Union. On 28 July, 2014, it was announced that the European Commission granted marketing authorization for Envarsus® for the prevention of organ rejection in adult kidney and liver transplant patients in the European Union (EU). The EU marketing authorization is based on review of the favourable results of the Envarsus® Phase III 3001 study in stable kidney transplant patients and 3002 study in de novo kidney transplant recipients as well as data from an extensive Phase I and II clinical program, which included both kidney and liver transplant patients.

Veloxis submitted a New Drug Application (NDA) to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) seeking approval for the marketing and sale of Envarsus® in the US for the prevention of organ rejection in kidney transplant recipients on 30 December, 2013. The FDA has accepted for standard review the NDA for Envarsus® and has set a target review date under the Prescription Drug User Fee Act (PDUFA) of 30 October, 2014.

In addition, the FDA granted Envarsus® Orphan Drug status for prophylaxis of organ rejection in patients receiving allogeneic kidney transplants. The designation is to encourage the development of drugs that may provide significant benefit to patients suffering from rare diseases.

Envarsus® Commercial Strategy

In the US Veloxis is planning to launch and commercialize Envarsus® XR through its own dedicated marketing and sales organization. The hiring and building of the marketing and sales infrastructure is on-going with activities on target to support a launch of Envarsus® XR for the indication of prophylaxis of kidney transplant rejection in the first quarter of 2015.

In the EU, Chiesi Farmaceutici S.p.A., through an exclusive distribution agreement with Veloxis, will commercialize Envarsus®, with initial country launches anticipated for the fourth quarter of 2014.

Revenue

For the first half of 2014 Veloxis recognized deferred revenue of DKK 24.4 million as revenue compared to DKK 13.7 million in the same period of 2013. Deferred revenue consist of up-front and milestone payments under Veloxis’ distribution agreement with Chiesi Farmaceutici S.p.A. and is recognized in the income statement based on planned development periods.

Sales and marketing costs

For the first half of 2014, Veloxis’ sales and marketing costs amounted to DKK 13.7 million. This reflects the hiring and building of the marketing and sales infrastructure in the US along with activities to support a launch of Envarsus® XR in the first quarter of 2015.

Research and development costs

For the first half of 2014, Veloxis’ research and development costs amounted to DKK 51.0 million compared to DKK 81.7 million during the same period in 2013. Research and development costs are mainly attributable to the phase III trial in Envarsus® (de novo patients, Study 3002). The reduction in cost is associated with the overall reduction in study activity as the study is approaching finalization.

Administrative expenses

For the first half of 2014, Veloxis’ administrative cost amounted to DKK 17.7 million compared to DKK 14.6 million during the same period in 2013.
