Wilson Therapeutics AB, a development stage biopharmaceutical company, today announced that a poster of the company's ongoing Phase 2 clinical trial for WTX101-201 will be presented at the upcoming annual meeting of the European Association for the Study of the Liver (EASL), or the 50th International Liver Congress 2015, taking place in Vienna April 22-26. The poster, titled "WTX101-201: Phase 2 Study of Bis-choline Tetrathiomolybdate in Newly Diagnosed Wilson Disease Patients," will be presented in the Clinical Trials in Progress session on April 25.
WTX101-201 is a Phase 2 clinical trial evaluating the efficacy and safety of WTX101 using an individualized dosing regimen in up to 30 newly-diagnosed patients with Wilson Disease. The study is being conducted at sites in the U.S. and Europe, and will follow patients on WTX101 for six months.
"We are very excited to be involved in the WTX101-201 study, the first clinical trial to evaluate a new therapy for Wilson Disease in Europe for more than a decade," said Karl-Heinz Weiss, MD, Associate Professor, Liver Cancer Center, University of Heidelberg. "Based on earlier clinical studies with tetrathiomolybdate in people with neurologic Wilson Disease, WTX101 holds great promise to mitigate the neurologic damage from Wilson Disease, so we are delighted it is available for study participants."
