Mon, 24th Apr 2017 12:42

LONDON (Alliance News) - Amryt Pharma PLC on Monday said it has enrolled its first patient into its phase III clinical trial of AP101 as a potential treatment for epidermolysis bullosa.

Epidermolysis bullosa is a disease that causes the skin to tear and blister on being touched.

The phase III trial will study 164 patients across 30 sites in 15 countries, with the first site initiated in Sydney, Australia.

"We are delighted to enrol the first patient in EASE, our pivotal Phase 3 clinical trial. The trial will evaluate the efficacy and safety of our lead drug candidate, AP101, as a potential treatment for Epidermolysis Bullosa, a distressing and rare skin disorder. We look forward to further patients joining the study, which we expect to be one of the largest studies of its kind in this rare disease," said Chief Medical Officer Mark Sumeray in a statement.

Shares in Amryt were down 3.7% at 22.52 pence Monday.
