Intellia Therapeutics Q1 HAE highlightsIntellia Therapeutics Announces First Quarter 2022 Financial Results and Highlights Recent Company Progress
Initiated second dose-escalation cohort evaluating NTLA-2002 for hereditary angioedema (HAE); plans to present interim data in 2H 2022
Alongside the progress of our lead program, we continued to advance our second in vivo candidate, NTLA-2002, which benefits from the modularity of our platform. We look forward to another important clinical milestone in the second half of this year when we expect to present initial data from the NTLA-2002 first-in-human study.
Hereditary Angioedema (HAE)
NTLA-2002: NTLA-2002 leverages Intellia’s proprietary in vivo LNP delivery technology to knock out the KLKB1 gene in the liver with the potential to permanently reduce total plasma kallikrein protein and activity, a key mediator of HAE. This investigational approach aims to prevent attacks for people living with HAE by providing continuous reduction of plasma kallikrein activity following a single dose and to eliminate the significant treatment burden associated with currently available HAE therapies.
Intellia is progressing the single-ascending dose portion of its Phase 1/2 study evaluating the safety, tolerability and activity of NTLA-2002 in adults with Type I or Type II HAE. The Company has completed dosing in the first dose-escalation cohort (25 mg fixed dose) and has begun enrolling patients in the second dose-escalation cohort (75 mg fixed dose).
The Company anticipates presenting interim data in the second half of 2022 from the first-in-human study, with initial results expected to characterize the emerging safety and activity profile of NTLA-2002, and potentially demonstrate preliminary proof-of-concept.
