Marburg, Germany, 21 February 2014
Significant improvement in lung function in both early and late phase asthmatic response
Outstanding safety profile confirmed
sterna biologicals GmbH & Co. KG (“sterna biologicals”) announced today top-line results of its recently completed phase IIa proof-ofconcept trial of SB010, an inhaled first-in-class GATA-3 antagonist for the treatment of Th2- driven asthma. The study – a randomised, double-blind, parallel group, multi-centre clinical trial – was designed to establish efficacy of SB010 in improving lung function (FEV1) as measured by the area under the FEV1 curve (AUC) in the late phase asthmatic response after specific allergen challenge compared to placebo treatment.
