InDex Pharmaceuticals announces results from COLLECT, a clinical trial of Kappaproct® in the treatment of moderate to severe Ulcerative Colitis
June 27, 2014 – InDex Pharmaceuticals today reported top-line results from the double blind, placebo-controlled clinical study COLLECT. The aim of the COLLECT study was to investigate the therapeutic potential of the Toll-like receptor 9 agonist Kappaproct as an add-on therapy for patients with moderate to severe, chronic active Ulcerative Colitis.
Patients treated with Kappaproct showed statistically significant improvement on symptomatic remission (blood in stool, number of stools), registration remission (clinical remission with concurrent endoscopic remission) and the rate of colectomy. The rate of clinical remission (Rachmilewitz Index) was high in both the Kappaproct and the control group and no statistically significant difference was observed on this measure. Kappaproct was well tolerated and no safety signals compared to the standard of care treatment group were evident.
