Amicus Therapeutics (Nasdaq:FOLD), a global biotechnology company focused on discovering, developing and delivering novel medicines for rare metabolic diseases, today announced the dosing of the first patient in a global phase 3 clinical study (ATB200-03, or PROPEL) of AT-GAA in adult patients with late onset Pompe disease.

As quoted in the press release:

PROPEL is a 52-week, double-blind randomized study designed to assess the efficacy, safety and tolerability of AT-GAA compared to the current standard of care, alglucosidase alfa, an enzyme replacement therapy (ERT).

All participants randomized to AT-GAA in the PROPEL study will receive drug manufactured at the 1000L scale intended for clinical and commercial supply. Amicus also expects to initiate a smaller, open-label study of AT-GAA in pediatric patients in 2019.

“The initiation of our global PROPEL study is a true example of our capabilities to discover, develop and manufacture promising therapies, and deliver them to patients as quickly as we can,” said John F. Crowley, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Amicus Therapeutics, Inc. “With the first patient treated in this important study, we are now able to provide access to AT-GAA to many more adults with late onset Pompe disease. Importantly, this study is the first to offer AT-GAA manufactured at our commercial scale following many years of diligent work on the CMC and manufacturing side to produce biocomparable material that we can now supply for the study and future global Pompe population. People living with Pompe disease are urgently seeking new options, and we hope that the treatment experience in this study will enable global regulatory submissions.”
