Ipsen Presents the Results of the First in-Human Study of a Recombinant Fast-Acting Neurotoxin (rBoNT-E) at TOXINS 201917.1.2019 09:30 | Tiedote
Regulatory News: Results of the first in-human study of a recombinant neurotoxin are being presented at the TOXINS International Conference in Copenhagen. Ipsen’s recombinant BoNT serotype E (rBoNT-E) was investigated in a phase I study that demonstrated its safety and tolerability profile in healthy volunteers1. The study also reported that it has a faster onset of action and a shorter duration of effect, as well as a quick time to peak activity, in comparison with established BoNT-A products. Further studies will be initiated to establish potential aesthetic and therapeutic uses of this investigational therapy. “The application of recombinant techniques to create novel botulinum toxin-based medicines with different onsets and durations of action, will potentially offer clinicians the flexibility to choose the most appropriate neurotoxin for each patient, which is not an option today,” said Philippe Picaut, Pharm.
