KaNDy Therapeutics Announces Positive Clinical Data with Lead Candidate NT-814 for the Treatment of Symptoms of the Menopause
KaNDy Therapeutics, a UK clinical-stage biotech company, today announces positive data from the Phase Ib/IIa clinical trial with its lead non-hormonal drug candidate, NT-814, for the treatment of symptoms of the menopause.
Results from the trial provide compelling evidence that NT-814, a novel, once-daily, oral neurokinin-1,3 receptor antagonist, produces a rapid and profound reduction in debilitating symptoms of the menopause including vasomotor symptoms (VMS), also known as HF, and night time awakenings.
Based on these results, KaNDy Therapeutics intends to advance NT-814 into a fully powered Phase IIb definitive dose-ranging study in patients suffering from debilitating symptoms of the menopause. The Phase IIb trial will begin later this year.
The Phase Ib/IIa RELENT-1 study was a randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled study conducted at three clinical pharmacology units (CPUs) in the US. Seventy-six women aged 41 to 64 years experiencing 7-20 moderate or severe hot flashes/flushes (HF) per week were recruited into the study and randomized to receive one of four escalating doses of NT-814 or placebo.
Treatment with NT-814 once daily for two weeks at the most effective dose evaluated, resulted in rapid and highly significant reductions in:
- the frequency of HF, with a reduction of 62% from baseline in the number of moderate and severe HF vs 24% for placebo in Week 1 (p<0.0014) and an 84% reduction from baseline vs 37% for placebo in week 2 (p<0.0002)
- the severity of HF, with a reduction of 23% from baseline in average HF severity vs 9% for placebo in week 1 (p<0.015) and a 50% reduction from baseline vs 16% for placebo in Week 2 (p<0.0004)
- the number of night time awakenings, with a reduction of 58% from baseline vs 17% for placebo in Week 1 (p< 0.0022) and an 81% reduction from baseline vs 32% for placebo in Week 2 (p< 0.0005).
NT-814 was well tolerated with no safety concerns across the dose range including routine safety labs, liver function tests, ECGs and vital signs.
Professor Richard Anderson, Elsie Inglis Professor of Clinical Reproductive Science, University of Edinburgh, and a scientific and clinical advisor to KaNDY Therapeutics, said: ““These are very promising results which suggest that NT-814, a novel once daily treatment taken orally, may offer women with debilitating symptoms of the menopause, a real alternative to hormone replacement therapy (HRT). In contrast to HRT, which can take weeks or months to be fully effective, both hot flashes and night-time awakenings responded rapidly and with big changes with NT-814.”
In addition, KaNDy Therapeutics announces it will be attending the 16th World congress on Menopause taking place in Vancouver, Canada, from 6-9 June 2018. To arrange a meeting with Dr Mary Kerr, Managing Director of KaNDy Therapeutics at the congress, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
About the RELENT-1 Study: The Phase Ib/IIa RELENT-1 study was a randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled study conducted at three clinical pharmacology units (CPU) in the US. Seventy-six women aged 41 to 64 years experiencing 7-20 moderate or severe HFs per week were recruited into the study and randomized to receive one of four escalating doses of NT-814 or placebo in four cohorts. Study drug was taken once daily in the morning for 14 days, the first seven of which were resident in the CPU. Subjects completed diaries twice daily for the two weeks before and throughout treatment and underwent routine safety assessments periodically throughout the trial. Further information on the study design can be found on www.clinicaltrials.gov and full results of the study will be published at scientific congresses and in peer-reviewed journals over the coming months.
NT-814 is an orally administered, potent and selective small molecule dual antagonist of both the neurokinin-1 and 3 receptors under development by KaNDy as a therapy for a range of Women’s Health conditions. NT-814 addresses VMS by modulating a group of oestrogen sensitive neurones in the hypothalamus in the brain (the KNDy neurones), that in menopausal women due to the absence of oestrogen, become hyperactive and consequently disrupt body heat control mechanisms resulting in the debilitating vasomotor symptoms of HF.
KaNDy Therapeutics is a clinical-stage company focused on optimizing the potential of NT-814 in the treatment of common, chronic debilitating female sex-hormone related conditions. These conditions, such as post-menopausal VMS, are debilitating for women often over many years and associated with significant healthcare and economic costs.

New Study Evaluates Ability of Masimo SpHb® (Noninvasive Hemoglobin) to Estimate Timing for Invasive Measurement to Detect Anemia During Surgery20.5.2019 10:00:00 EEST | Tiedote
Masimo (NASDAQ: MASI) announced today the results of a study published in BMC Anesthesiology in which clinicians at Peking Union Medical College in Beijing evaluated the ability of noninvasive and continuous hemoglobin monitoring with Masimo SpHb® to help clincians estimate when to conduct invasive hemoglobin measurement to detect possible anemia in patients undergoing spine or cytoreductive surgery.1 This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20190520005244/en/ Masimo Radical-7® with SpHb® (Photo: Business Wire) Noting that because of the “invasive, time-consuming and intermittent” nature of invasive blood sampling, clincians often forgo these “objective indications” when making transfusion decisions during surgery, Dr. Tang and colleagues sought to determine whether noninvasive, continuous hemoglobin monitoring could aid clinicians in estimating when it might be appropriate to perform an invasive measurement. They enroll

New Exploratory Data from VARSITY, First Head-to-Head Ulcerative Colitis Biologic Study Which Demonstrated Superiority of Vedolizumab to Adalimumab in Clinical Remission at Week 52, Presented at 2019 Digestive Disease Week®20.5.2019 03:16:00 EEST | Tiedote
Takeda Pharmaceutical Company Limited (TSE:4502/NYSE:TAK) (“Takeda”) today announced further results from the Phase 3b head-to-head VARSITY study, which demonstrated that the gut-selective biologic vedolizumab (Entyvio®) was superior to the anti-tumor necrosis factor-alpha (anti-TNFα) biologic adalimumab (Humira®) in achieving clinical remission* at week 52 in patients with moderately to severely active ulcerative colitis (UC).1 New exploratory data showed that a greater proportion of patients receiving vedolizumab intravenous (IV) achieved clinical response** at week 14 compared to those treated with adalimumab subcutaneous (SC), 67.1% vs. 45.9% respectively. A separation between the treatment groups was seen as early as week 6, favoring vedolizumab. These results were announced in a Distinguished Abstract Plenary Lecture Presentation at the 2019 Digestive Disease Week® (DDW) annual scientific meeting (May 18-21 in San Diego, CA), one of 18 Takeda sponsored vedolizumab abstracts accep
Age, Gender, Disease Severity Impact Adherence to Long-Term PAP Therapy More Than Previously Thought19.5.2019 22:15:00 EEST | Tiedote
ResMed (NYSE: RMD, ASX: RMD) today revealed several demographic and clinical factors affect adherence to PAP (positive airway pressure) therapy, according to a study it presented at the American Thoracic Society's ATS 2019 International Conference. The study found significant differences in one-year adherence between people of different ages and disease severity levels: Men with sleep apnea are 8.5 percentage points more likely to stay adherent on PAP therapy than women. People over age 60 were 7.3 percentage points more adherent than the entire study cohort (77.7% vs. 70.4%). People with self-reported severe sleep apnea were 78% adherent at the one-year mark, compared to 70.5% of those with self-reported moderate sleep apnea, and 65.2% of those with mild sleep apnea. “Sleep specialists, pulmonologists, and primary care physicians should heed these results and ensure that their younger, female, and more mildly diagnosed patients have the proper supports to stay on therapy,” said Adam B
