Concert Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:CNCE) today announced that it has completed patient enrollment of the final cohort evaluating 12 mg twice daily of CTP-543 in its Phase 2a trial for the treatment of moderate-to-severe alopecia areata.

As quoted in the press release:

“It is important early on in our development program to identify the safest and most effective doses of CTP-543 for patients with a chronic autoimmune disease like alopecia areata. The evaluation of the twice daily 12 mg dose provides a comprehensive exploration of the relevant dose range for CTP-543 and positions us well for later stage development of the compound,” stated James V. Cassella, Ph.D., Chief Development Officer of Concert Pharmaceuticals.

The Phase 2a trial is a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled, sequential dose trial to evaluate the safety and efficacy of CTP-543 in adult patients with moderate-to-severe alopecia areata. Patients were sequentially randomized to receive one of three doses of CTP-543 (4 mg, 8 mg, or 12 mg) or placebo twice daily. The primary outcome measure utilizes the severity of alopecia tool (SALT) after 24 weeks of dosing. Additional information about the trial is available on www.clinicaltrials.gov.
