Pfizer and Sangamo therapeutics announce phase 3 trial of investigational gene therapy for hemophilia a has re-opened recruitment

•    Patient dosing is expected to resume in October

NEW YORK, NY, and BRISBANE, CA, USA I September 22, 2022 I Pfizer and Sangamo Therapeutics announced that the Phase 3 AFFINE study evaluating giroctocogene fitelparvovec, an investigational gene therapy for patients with moderately severe to severe hemophilia A, has re-opened recruitment. Trial sites will begin to resume enrollment this month, with dosing expected to resume in October. All trial sites are anticipated to be active by the end of 2022 and a pivotal readout is expected in the first half of 2024.

About the AFFINE Study
The Phase 3 AFFINE (NCT04370054) study is an open-label, multicenter, single arm study to evaluate the efficacy and safety of a single infusion of giroctocogene fitelparvovec in more than 60 adult (ages 18-64 years) male participants with moderately severe to severe hemophilia A. Eligible study participants will have completed at least six months of routine FVIII prophylaxis therapy during the lead-in Phase 3 study (NCT03587116) in order to collect pretreatment data for efficacy and selected safety parameters.

The primary endpoint is impact on annualized bleeding rate (ABR) through 15 months following treatment with giroctocogene fitelparvovec. This will be compared to ABR on prior FVIII prophylaxis replacement therapy. The secondary endpoints include FVIII activity level after the onset of steady state and through 15 months following infusion of giroctocogene fitelparvovec.

About giroctocogene fitelparvovec
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has granted Orphan Drug, Fast Track, and regenerative medicine advanced therapy (RMAT) designations to giroctocogene fitelparvovec, which also received Orphan Medicinal Product designation from the European Medicines Agency. Giroctocogene fitelparvovec is being developed as part of a collaboration agreement for the global development and commercialization of gene therapies for hemophilia A between Sangamo and Pfizer. In late 2019, Sangamo transferred the manufacturing technology and the Investigational New Drug (IND) application to Pfizer. Giroctocogene fitelparvovec is currently being studied in the Phase 3 AFFINE study.
