Ascletis Reports First Patient Dosing in the P-II Clinical Trial of ASC41 for Liver Biopsy-Proven Non-Alcoholic Steatohepatitis

Shots:

  • The first patient has been dosed in the 52wk. P-II trial to evaluate the safety & efficacy of ASC41 (2/4mg, qd) vs PBO in a ratio (1:1:1) in 180 patients with liver biopsy-proven NASH. The patient’s enrollment is expected to be completed in Q3’23
  • The 1EPs of the trial are NAFLD activity score improvement ≥2 points (improvement in inflammation or ballooning) & no worsening of fibrosis
  • In the P-I trial of 65 patients with elevated LDL-C (>110 mg/dL), ASC41 showed a reduction in LDL-C and TG over PBO after 14 days of treatment, the relative TG reduction from baseline was 39% at a very low dose of 1mg. The therapy showed higher potency & requires a lower dosage (1mg) with 30% relative TG reduction over MGL-3196
