Intellia Therapeutics to Present Updated Data from Phase 1/2 Study of NTLA-2002 for the Treatment of Hereditary Angioedema (HAE) at the EAACI Congress 2024

  • Extended follow-up will include safety, kallikrein reduction and attack rate data, including number of patients who continue to be completely attack free through the latest follow-up
  • Intellia to host investor webcast on Monday, June 3, at 8 a.m. ET

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., April 29, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Intellia Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ:NTLA), a leading clinical-stage gene editing company focused on revolutionizing medicine with CRISPR-based therapies, today announced the acceptance of an oral presentation from the Phase 1 portion of the ongoing NTLA-2002 Phase 1/2 study at the European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology (EAACI) Congress 2024, taking place May 31 – June 3 in Valencia, Spain. NTLA-2002 is an investigational in vivo CRISPR-based gene editing therapy in development as a single-dose treatment for hereditary angioedema (HAE), a rare genetic condition that leads to potentially life-threatening swelling attacks. The presentation will include updated safety and efficacy results from the Phase 1 study across all three dose cohorts (25 mg, 50 mg and 75 mg).

About the NTLA-2002 Clinical Program
Intellia’s ongoing Phase 1/2 study is evaluating the safety and activity of NTLA-2002 in adults with Type I or Type II hereditary angioedema (HAE). The Phase 1/2 is an international, open-label study designed to identify a dose level of NTLA-2002 for further evaluation in a Phase 3 study. Enrollment of the Phase 1/2 is complete. Intellia plans to initiate the global, pivotal Phase 3 study in the second half of 2024, subject to regulatory feedback. Visit clinicaltrials.gov (NCT05120830) for more details.

About NTLA-2002
Based on Nobel-prize winning CRISPR/Cas9 technology, NTLA-2002 has the potential to become the first one-time treatment for hereditary angioedema (HAE). NTLA-2002 is designed to prevent HAE attacks by inactivating the kallikrein B1 (KLKB1) gene, which encodes for prekallikrein, the kallikrein precursor protein. Interim Phase 1 clinical data showed dramatic reductions in attack rate, as well as consistent, deep and durable reductions in kallikrein levels. NTLA-2002 has received five notable regulatory designations, including Orphan Drug and RMAT Designation by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, the Innovation Passport by the U.K. Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA), Priority Medicines (PRIME) Designation by the European Medicines Agency, as well as Orphan Drug Designation by the European Commission.

About Hereditary Angioedema
Hereditary angioedema (HAE) is a rare, genetic disease characterized by severe, recurring and unpredictable inflammatory attacks in various organs and tissues of the body, which can be painful, debilitating and life-threatening. It is estimated that one in 50,000 people are affected by HAE. Although there is no known cure for HAE, there are preventative and on-demand treatment options to help manage the condition, including long- and short-term prophylaxis used to prevent swelling attacks. Current treatment options often include life-long therapies, which may require chronic intravenous (IV) or subcutaneous (SC) administration as often as twice per week or daily oral administration to ensure constant pathway suppression for disease control. Despite chronic administration, breakthrough attacks still occur. Kallikrein inhibition is a clinically validated strategy for the preventive treatment of HAE attacks.
