HAYWARD, Calif., May 15, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Anthera Pharmaceuticals. (Nasdaq:ANTH) today announced that it has commenced screening in the RESULT Phase 3 clinical study of Sollpura for exocrine pancreatic insufficiency due to cystic fibrosis.  Based on feedback from the US FDA, this non-inferiority study will compare the efficacy of Sollpura, a biologically manufactured pancreatic enzyme replacement therapy (PERT), to Pancreaze, a porcine-extracted PERT, as assessed by CFA after 4 weeks of treatment. Topline data are expected at the end of 2017 or early 2018, depending on the speed of patient enrollment. “As a key investigator in the SOLUTION study and now participating in the RESULT study, I am excited to be part of this important study for Cystic Fibrosis patients with exocrine pancreatic insufficiency.  Sollpura has the potential to address an unmet need for PERTs with a reduction in pill burden, as well as the benefit of a product that is not extracted from pigs,” shared Dr. Steven R. Boas, M.D., FAAP, FACSM President and CEO, The Cystic Fibrosis Institute, Glenview, IL. The RESULT clinical study builds upon data from the previous Sollpura trial (SOLUTION) and allows for more frequent and higher dose adjustments based upon clinical signs and symptoms.  As with current practice with porcine enzymes, the RESULT study allows patients to increase their daily dose to an individualized dose that achieves maximum therapeutic benefit, while maintaining a potential reduction in daily pill burden as compared to porcine PERTs. “We are very pleased to achieve this important milestone for Sollpura,” shared William Shanahan, Chief Medical Officer, “and we appreciate the input from the US FDA and members of the CF Community in the design of RESULT. There is enthusiasm within patient and provider communities for a non-porcine derived product and we look forward to this important study.” The Phase 3 RESULT study is designed to evaluate the non-inferiority of Sollpura at individualized doses compared to approved, porcine-derived, enteric-coated PERT when administered to patients with exocrine pancreatic insufficiency due to cystic fibrosis.  The study will enroll patients (N≈150) with exocrine pancreatic insufficiency due to cystic fibrosis who are well controlled on stable porcine PERT at screening, as demonstrated by a minimum CFA.  The primary efficacy variable will evaluate the change from baseline in CFA following 4 weeks of treatment with either Sollpura or Pancreaze. Patients randomized to Sollpura will then be followed for an additional 20-Week extension period (total of 24 weeks on study) for additional assessments of weight, height, BMI, and safety. Sollpura is a novel, non-porcine PERT containing a proprietary, biotechnology-derived formulation of cross-linked crystalline lipase, crystalline protease, and amorphous amylase with broad substrate specificity, that has been designed for purity (no potential for porcine viral contamination), formulation of enzymes in a precise and fixed ratio, stability in acid pH without enteric coating, and activity in the proximal small intestine. Sollpura represents potentially the first soluble, stable and non-pig derived enzyme product to offer a solution to people with EPI, including young children and adults, who are either unable to swallow multiple pills or require gastric tubes in order to maintain appropriate nutritional health. Anthera Pharmaceuticals is a biopharmaceutical company focused on developing and commercializing products to treat serious and life-threatening diseases, including exocrine pancreatic insufficiency and IgA nephropathy.

SAN DIEGO & HAYWARD, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Shareholder rights law firm Robbins Arroyo LLP announces that a class action complaint was filed against Anthera Pharmaceuticals, Inc. ("Anthera") (NASDAQGM: ANTH) in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California. The complaint is brought on behalf of all purchasers of Anthera securities between February 10, 2015 and December 27, 2016, for alleged violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 by Anthera's officers and directors. Anthera, a biopharmaceutical company, focuses on the development and commercialization of medicines for patients with unmet medical needs. View this information on the law firm's Shareholder Rights Blog: www.robbinsarroyo.com/shareholders-rights-blog/anthera-pharmaceuticals-inc According to the complaint, on February 10, 2015, Anthera announced the successful completion of an interim analysis of its Phase 3 trial, known as CHABLIS-SC1, of blisibimod in patients with systematic lupub erythematosus ("SLE"). Anthera stated that it was pleased with the study's ability to pass a critical milestone and that "the [SLE Responder Index-6] endpoint has a history of consistency across multiple trials and represents the best possibility for success." Anthera also stated in a Form 10-K that it filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission that it believed that the CHABLIS-SC1 development program may offer many potential opportunities for differentiation as opposed to other offerings, and subsequently stated that the company expected to report topline efficacy data in the fourth quarter of 2016. However, the complaint alleges that Anthera officials failed to disclose that patients were not improving in the CHABLIS-SC1 clinical trial and that there were dosing problems inherent in its Solution Study design that created challenges to obtaining responses. On November 10, 2016, Anthera announced in a press release that the CHABLIS-SC1 clinical trial failed to meet its primary endpoint based upon the SLE Responder Index-6 at 52 weeks. The company further expressed disappointment that the results did not demonstrate a meaningful improvement in patients' disease activity. Then, on December 27, 2016, Anthera announced the Solution Study missed the CFA non-inferiority margin of the primary modified Intent to Treat analysis. Anthera attributed the disappointing news to the structure of the study, which likely hindered the results by prohibiting some patients from increasing their dosage during the testing. On this news, Anthera's stock fell by 63% to close at $0.74 per share on December 28, 2016. Concerned shareholders who would like more information about their rights and potential remedies can contact attorney Darnell R. Donahue at (800) 350-6003, DDonahue@robbinsarroyo.com, or via the shareholder information form on the firm's website. Robbins Arroyo LLP is a nationally recognized leader in shareholder rights law.
