Direct-to-Patient Trials: How IRT Plays an Important Role in Bellerophon's Direct-to-Patient Trials

As the industry strengthens its focus on patient centricity, Direct-to-Patient clinical trials have emerged as a popular trial design that have the potential to increase patient recruitment and retention. IRT plays a crucial role in the success of a Direct-to-Patient trial. Because drug supplies are being managed and shipped from distribution facilities directly to patients’ homes, a sponsor must have a high-quality system in place to accurately track the chain of custody, ensure patient-blinding and handle other logistical challenges.

The randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial is being carried out in Australia.

It will be conducted in two parts: a single-ascending dose phase (Part 1) and a multiple-ascending dose phase (Part 2).

During the first phase of the trial, the company is expected to enrol up to 64 healthy subjects who will receive EHP-101 or placebo in single-ascending oral doses.

A maximum of 40 healthy subjects will be included in the second phase and will be administered EHP-101 or placebo in multiple-ascending daily oral doses, as determined in Part 1.

The trial’s primary endpoints are to evaluate the safety and tolerability of EHP-101.

“We believe our novel, proprietary oral treatment represents a significant advancement in the treatment of patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) and scleroderma.”

Its secondary endpoints include evaluation of the pharmacokinetic profile, food effects, and pharmacodynamic effects of EHP-101, as well as various biomarkers related to EHP-101’s mechanism of action and its potential for efficacy.

Top-line results from the trial are expected to be published next year.

Emerald Health Pharmaceuticals CEO Jim DeMesa said: “Our research and development team has demonstrated the unique mechanism of action of EHP-101 in preclinical studies, indicating the potential to treat deadly diseases which currently have no cure.

“We believe our novel, proprietary oral treatment represents a significant advancement in the treatment of patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) and scleroderma.

“The initiation of human studies is a major accomplishment as we continue to advance cannabinoid science and deliver on another important development milestone. Based on our recent pre-IND meeting with the US FDA, we believe the results from this Phase I study are likely to support Phase II studies in both MS and scleroderma.”

EHP-101 is an investigational oral drug formulation of a synthetic new chemical entity (NCE) derived from cannabidiol (CBD).
