Clinical Trial Overview
BioMarin’s investigational gene therapy, valoctocogene roxaparvovec, is currently being studied in adults with severe hemophilia A. The first Phase 1/2 study was initiated in 2015 and involved 15 individuals and two dose levels. These individuals are now in long- term follow-up, post treatment with valoctocogene roxaparvovec.
The Phase 3 study (named GENEr8-1) is currently being conducted in 13 countries and is fully enrolled. 134 patients have received investigational gene therapy as part of this study.
On May 19, 2021, BioMarin released a high-level update on the Phase 1 / 2 study of valoctocogene roxaparvovec, including the most recent results based on 5 years of follow up data for individuals receiving the 6E13 vg/kg dose.
BioMarin intends to present more detail on the five-year update from the ongoing Phase 1 / 2 study during an oral presentation at the upcoming International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis (ISTH) 2021 Virtual Congress taking place July 17-21.
BioMarin extends its sincere gratitude to all study participants who have helped make this milestone possible.
In the United States, BioMarin plans to submit two-year follow-up safety and efficacy data on all study participants from the GENEr8-1 study to support the benefit/risk assessment of valoctocogene roxaparvovec. BioMarin is targeting a Biologics License Application (BLA) submission in the second quarter of 2022 assuming favorable study results, followed by an expected six-month review procedure by the FDA.
In Europe, BioMarin plans to submit a Marketing Authorization Application (MAA) for valoctocogene roxaparvovec for the treatment of severe hemophilia A with one-year results from the Phase 3 GENEr8-1 study to the European Medicines Agency (EMA) in June 2021.
