Inventiva a été retenue pour présenter les résultats positifs de l’étude clinique de Phase IIa avec odiparcil dans la MPS VI lors du 16ème « Annual WORLDSymposiumTM »

3 février 2020

Daix (France), le 3 février 2020 – Inventiva (Euronext : IVA), société biopharmaceutique spécialisée dans le développement clinique de petites molécules administrées par voie orale pour le traitement de maladies dans les domaines de la fibrose, de la surcharge lysosomale et de l’oncologie, annonce aujourd’hui que le docteur Nathalie Guffon (MD, Hôpital Femme-Mère-Enfant, Lyon, France), investigateur de l’étude clinique de Phase IIa iMProveS (improve MPS treatment), présentera un poster, intitulé « Treatment of mucopolysaccharidosis type VI patients with odiparcil alone or in addition to enzyme replacement therapy : A Phase IIa study », lors du 16ème « Annual WORLDSymposiumTM » qui se tiendra du 10 au 13 février 2020 au Hyatt Regency Orlando, Orlando, Floride.

Le docteur Nathalie Guffon reviendra sur les résultats positifs de l’étude clinique de Phase IIa iMProveS, publiés le 18 décembre 2019, qui ont montré l’impact positif d’odiparcil sur des symptômes cliniques clés chez plusieurs patients tels que l’opacification cornéenne et les fonctions cardiaques et respiratoires. Par ailleurs, l’étude clinique a atteint son critère principal en matière de sécuité, confirmant ainsi le bon profil de sécurité d’odiparcil observé lors des précédentes études cliniques de Phase I et de Phase II. Au regard des résultats de l’étude clinique iMProveS, Inventiva a décidé de poursuivre le développement clinique d’odiparcil pour le traitement de la MPS VI.

Pierre Broqua, Directeur Scientifique et cofondateur d’Inventiva, a déclaré : « Nous sommes très satisfaits des résultats de l’étude iMProveS qui montrent qu’odiparcil est capable de traiter des tissus difficiles à atteindre et d’améliorer les fonctions cardiaques et respiratoires. Etant donné que la thérapie enzymatique de remplacement, standard de soin actuel, montre une efficacité limitée dans ces organes, nous pensons qu’odiparcil pourrait devenir un traitement de référence dans la MPS VI. Nous sommes impatients de présenter nos résultats prometteurs lors du congrès à venir et poursuivre le développement clinique d’odiparcil ».

About Inventiva
Inventiva is a biopharmaceutical company specialized in the development of drugs interacting with nuclear receptors, transcription factors and epigenetic modulators. Inventiva’s research engine opens up novel breakthrough therapies against fibrotic diseases, cancers and orphan diseases with substantial unmet medical needs.

Lanifibranor, its lead product, is an anti-fibrotic treatment acting on the three alpha, gamma and delta PPARs (peroxisome proliferator-activated receptors), which play key roles in controlling the fibrotic process. Its anti-fibrotic action targets two initial indications with substantial unmet medical need: NASH, a severe and increasingly prevalent liver disease already affecting over 30 million people in the United States, and systemic sclerosis, a disease with a very high mortality rate and for which there is no approved treatment to date.

Inventiva is also developing a second clinical program with odiparcil (IVA 336) for the treatment of patients with mucopolysaccaridosis type VI (or Maroteaux-Lamy syndrome), a rare and severe gene disease affecting children. Odiparcil has also the potential to address other MPS types, characterized by the accumulation of chondroitin or dermatan sulfate (MPS I or Hurler/Sheie syndrome, MPS II or Hunter syndrome, MPS IVa or Morquio syndrome and MPS VII or Sly syndrome). Inventiva is also developing a portfolio of early research projects in the field of oncology.

Inventiva benefits from partnerships with world-leading research entities such as the Institut Curie in the field of oncology. Two strategic partnerships have also been established with world-class major pharmaceutical companies AbbVie and Boehringer Ingelheim in the fields of autoimmune diseases (specifically in psoriasis) and fibrosis respectively. These partnerships provide milestone payments to Inventiva upon the achievement of pre-clinical, clinical, regulatory and commercial milestones, in addition to royalties on the products resulting from the partnerships.

Inventiva employs over 100 employees and owns R&D facilities near Dijon, acquired from the international pharmaceutical group Abbott. The Company owns, a proprietary chemical library of over 240,000 molecules as well as integrated biology, chemistry, ADME and pharmacology platforms.
