MENLO PARK, Calif., Mar. 18, 2019 – Dermira, Inc. (NASDAQ: DERM), a biopharmaceutical company dedicated to bringing biotech ingenuity to medical dermatology by delivering differentiated, new therapies to the millions of people living with chronic skin conditions, today announced positive results from a Phase 2b dose-ranging study of lebrikizumab, an investigational therapy, in adult patients with moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis. All three doses of lebrikizumab met the primary endpoint, demonstrating greater improvements in the Eczema Area and Severity Index (EASI) score compared to placebo. The safety profile for lebrikizumab observed in the study was consistent with prior studies evaluating this investigational therapy.

Lebrikizumab is a novel, injectable, humanized monoclonal antibody designed to bind interleukin-13 (IL-13) with high affinity, specifically preventing the formation of the IL-13Rα1/IL-4Rα heterodimer complex, which inhibits downstream signaling. IL-13 is believed to be a central pathogenic mediator that drives multiple aspects of the pathophysiology of atopic dermatitis by promoting type 2 inflammation and mediating its effects on tissue, resulting in skin barrier dysfunction, itch, skin thickening and infection.

“These data are compelling and further demonstrate clinically that IL-13 is a key mediator in atopic dermatitis,” said Emma Guttman-Yassky, M.D., Ph.D., The Sol and Clara Kest Professor, Vice Chair for Research in the Department of Dermatology, Director of the Center of Excellence in Eczema at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and a leading study investigator. “I have many patients for whom current therapies do not adequately address their needs. These data show that lebrikizumab may offer a targeted, effective and well-tolerated therapeutic approach.”

Lebrikizumab Phase 2b Study Results

Across all of the doses evaluated, lebrikizumab showed a dose-dependent and statistically significant improvement in the primary endpoint, the mean percent change in EASI score from baseline to week 16. The improvement in EASI score was 62.3% for patients receiving lebrikizumab, 125 milligrams (mg), every four weeks (p=0.0165), 69.2% for patients receiving lebrikizumab, 250 mg, every four weeks (p=0.0022) and 72.1% for patients receiving lebrikizumab, 250 mg, every two weeks (p=0.0005) compared to 41.1% for patients receiving placebo.


Patients treated with lebrikizumab at the 250 mg dose every two or four weeks achieved statistically significant improvements in other key efficacy measures compared to placebo after 16 weeks of treatment, including:

Lebrikizumab 250 mg every four weeks:

 

   

33.7% of lebrikizumab-treated patients achieved clearing or near-clearing of skin lesions, as measured by an investigator’s global assessment (IGA) score of 0 or 1, and a reduction of at least 2 points from baseline, compared to 15.3% with placebo (p=0.0392).

 

   

56.1% of lebrikizumab treated patients achieved a reduction of at least 75% from baseline in EASI score (EASI-75), compared to 24.3% on placebo (p=0.0021).

 

   

36.1% of lebrikizumab treated patients achieved a reduction of at least 90% from baseline in EASI score (EASI-90), compared to 11.4% on placebo (p=0.0062).

Lebrikizumab 250 mg every two weeks:

 

   

44.6% of lebrikizumab-treated patients achieved clearing or near-clearing of skin lesions, as measured by an IGA score of 0 or 1, and a reduction of at least 2 points from baseline, compared to 15.3% with placebo (p=0.0023).

 

   

60.6% of lebrikizumab treated patients achieved a reduction of at least 75% from baseline in EASI-75, compared to 24.3% on placebo (p=0.0005).

 

   

44.0% of lebrikizumab treated patients achieved a reduction of at least 90% from baseline in EASI-90, compared to 11.4% on placebo (p=0.0006).

The secondary endpoints for the 125 mg lebrikizumab dosing arm did not meet statistical significance.

The most common adverse events reported across all three lebrikizumab dosing arms were upper respiratory tract infection (7.5% vs. 5.8% for placebo), nasopharyngitis (6.6% vs. 3.8% for placebo), headache (3.1% vs. 5.8% for placebo) and injection site pain (3.1% vs. 1.9% for placebo). Rates of conjunctivitis (2.6% compared to no reports for placebo) and herpes infections (2.2% compared to no reports for placebo) were low. Overall, adverse events observed in lebrikizumab-treated patients were primarily mild to moderate in severity and infrequently led to treatment discontinuation.

“Based on the clinical profile observed in this study, we believe lebrikizumab has the potential to be a best-in-disease therapy for atopic dermatitis,” said Tom Wiggans, chairman and chief executive officer of Dermira. “We intend to move quickly into a Phase 3 program following discussions with U.S. regulators. I want to thank the patients and investigators who participated in this trial and hope these contributions will support our ability to offer a new and differentiated treatment option to the millions of people struggling to effectively manage their atopic dermatitis.”

Following an end-of-Phase 2 meeting with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, Dermira plans to initiate a Phase 3 clinical development program for lebrikizumab by the end of 2019.

About the Lebrikizumab Phase 2b Study

The randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel-group Phase 2b study was designed to evaluate the safety and efficacy of lebrikizumab as monotherapy compared with placebo and to establish the dosing regimen for a potential Phase 3 program in patients with moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis. The study enrolled 280 patients ages 18 years and older with moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis at 57 sites in the United States. The study evaluated three different lebrikizumab treatment dosing arms compared to a placebo arm, with patients randomized in a 3:3:3:2 fashion:

 

   

Group 1: A loading dose of 250 mg of lebrikizumab at week 0, followed by 125 mg of lebrikizumab every four weeks.


   

Group 2: A loading dose of 500 mg of lebrikizumab at week 0, followed by 250 mg of lebrikizumab every four weeks.

 

   

Group 3: A loading dose of 500 mg of lebrikizumab at weeks 0 and 2, followed by 250 mg of lebrikizumab every two weeks.

 

   

Group 4: Placebo at week 0 and every two weeks thereafter.

The inclusion criteria for patients enrolled in this study included chronic atopic dermatitis for at least one year, an EASI score of 16 or greater, an IGA score of 3 or 4 and a body surface area involving at least 10% at screening and baseline. Following the end of the 16-week assessment period, patients are followed for an additional 16 weeks.

About Atopic Dermatitis

Atopic dermatitis is the most common and severe form of eczema, a chronic inflammatory condition that can present as early as childhood and continue into adulthood. A moderate-to-severe form of the disease is characterized by rashes on the skin that often cover much of the body and also includes redness, cracking, dryness and intense, persistent itching. The skin condition can have a negative impact on patients’ mental and physical functioning, limiting their daily activities and health-related quality of life. Patients with moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis have reported a larger impact on quality of life than patients with psoriasis.

About Lebrikizumab

Lebrikizumab is a novel, injectable, humanized monoclonal antibody designed to bind IL-13 with very high affinity, specifically preventing the formation of the IL-13Rα1/IL-4Rα heterodimer complex and subsequent signaling, thereby inhibiting the biological effects of IL-13 in a targeted and efficient fashion. IL-13 is believed to be a central pathogenic mediator that drives multiple aspects of the pathophysiology of atopic dermatitis by promoting type 2 inflammation and mediating its effects on tissue, resulting in skin barrier dysfunction, itch, skin thickening and infection.

Conclusions These data suggest that taking a selective approach to addressing IL-13 inhibition with lebrikizumab may be the best approach to treating AD Based on the compelling efficacy results observed, lebrikizumab may have the potential to be a truly differentiated therapy and may offer a best-in-disease treatment option for patients living with AD These data suggest that lebrikizumab may also be differentiated on its safety, tolerability and dosing profile Plan to have End-of-Phase 2 meeting with FDA and initiate Phase 3 program by end of 2019
