Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease Emerging Drugs Chapters

This segment of the Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease report encloses its detailed analysis of various drugs in different stages of clinical development, including phase II, I, preclinical and Discovery. It also helps to understand clinical trial details, expressive pharmacological action, agreements and collaborations, and the latest news and press releases.

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease Emerging Drugs

Benralizumab: AstraZeneca

Benralizumab (FASENRA) is a monoclonal antibody that binds directly to the IL-5 receptor alpha on eosinophil and attracts natural killer cells to induce rapid and near-complete depletion of eosinophil via apoptosis (programmed cell death). The drug is approved by the US FDA for asthma and is currently being developed for other respiratory and immunological disorders such as COPD, atopic dermatitis, and others.

The drug was earlier in GALATHEA and TERRANOVA trials (randomized, double-blinded, placebo-controlled, parallel-group trials that assessed the safety and efficacy of Fasenra 30mg and 100mg for preventing COPD exacerbations). At present, the drug is in RESOLUTE (Phase III trial) to evaluate its efficacy and safety.

MV130: Inmunotek S.L.

MV130 (BACTEK) is a bacterial mucosal vaccine or a bacterial polyvalent vaccine in a spray that is administered sublingually to treat recurrent respiratory tract infections in children and adults. MV130 plays a relevant role in modulating the functional activity of the innate and adaptive immune response by stimulating dendritic cells, which are part of innate immunity. A Phase III clinical trial is evaluating MV130 in patients with COPD. At present, the trial is ongoing in Spain.

SB-240563: GlaxoSmithKline

SB-240563 (mepolizumab) is a humanized monoclonal antibody that blocks human interleukin 5 (hIL-5) from binding to its receptor. Initial clinical studies investigated the safety and efficacy of SB-240563 for the treatment of asthma and atopic dermatitis (AD). SB-240563 reduced peripheral and tissue eosinophils in patients with asthma and healthy volunteers. Currently, it is in the Phase III stage of the clinical trials.

SAR440340: Sanofi/Regeneron

SAR440340 (Itepekimab) is a humanized IgG4P monoclonal antibody that blocks human interleukin 33 (hIL-33) from binding to its receptor. IL-33 is an epithelial cytokine that initiates and amplifies innate and adaptive type 2 and 1 inflammatory pathways in response to epithelial insults due to exposure to allergens, viruses, cigarette smoke, and pollutants.

SAR440340 was invented using Regeneron's proprietary VelocImmune technology that yields optimized fully-human antibodies and is being developed jointly by Regeneron and Sanofi as part of a global collaboration agreement.

CHF 6001: Chiesi Farmaceutici S.p.A.

CHF6001 is a novel inhaled phosphodiesterase-4 (PDE-4) inhibitor developed as an extrafine formulation (i.e., with mass median aerodynamic diameter ≤ 2 μm) and low systemic exposure. This allows CHF6001 to reach a therapeutic concentration in the target organ, the lung, with reduced systemic exposure, limiting systemic adverse effects. The drug is administered through a dry powder inhaler (DPI NEXThaler).

YPL 001: Yungjin Pharm. Co., Ltd.

YPL 001 is a drug molecule that belongs to the anti-inflammatory and anti-histamine class of drugs. The drug is being developed for COPD. YPL-001 is a product developed using wild chives, which grow naturally in nature, as a raw material. A Phase II trial was conducted in US hospitals to assess the drug's safety in patients with moderate-to-severe COPD. In Phase I studies, YPL-001 was well tolerated in healthy subjects following single (up to 320 mg) and multiple (up to 240 mg twice daily [BID]) oral doses with no serious adverse events (AEs).
