HALLE (SAALE) / MUNICH, GERMANY, June 23, 2022 – Vivoryon Therapeutics N.V. (Euronext Amsterdam: VVY; NL00150002Q7) (Vivoryon), a clinical stage company focused on the discovery and development of small molecule medicines to modulate the activity and stability of pathologically altered proteins, today announced that it has completed the parallel group, dose-finding part of its European Phase 2b study VIVIAD (NCT04498650) and that the independent Data Safety Monitoring Board (DSMB) has selected the highest dose investigated, 600 mg twice daily (BID), as the final dose to be administered in the second part of the study. VIVIAD is a state-of-the-art Phase 2b study designed to evaluate the safety, tolerability and efficacy of varoglutamstat in 250 subjects with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and mild Alzheimer’s disease (AD). The DSMB decision is based on safety data from 181 patients, 90 of which had completed the week 24 treatment visit at the May 17 cut-off date. All subjects randomized to the treatment arm will be treated at the selected dose of 600 mg BID moving forward and will continue treatment for up to 48-96 weeks dependent on study entry date.
Detailed results of the study will be presented at an upcoming medical conference.
“We are encouraged by the DSMB’s decision to continue the study with the highest dose tested in our treatment arm, which is key to the next steps of clinical development in Europe, the U.S. and also in China led by our partner Simcere,” said Dr. Ulrich Dauer, CEO of Vivoryon. “We look forward to announcing the detailed VIVIAD interim safety results in the coming weeks.”
VIVIAD is actively enrolling patients and will continue to evaluate its primary and secondary outcome measures, which include multiple cognitive, safety and biomarker endpoints. Vivoryon remains on target to report final data for the study in the second half of 2023.
