OMS721: Omeros update re aHUS Clinical Trial

     In a 20 April 2016 press release, the Omeros Corporation has announced initiation of “patient dosing in its OMS721 Phase 2 program in corticosteroid-dependent renal diseases. The Phase 2 clinical trial of OMS721, the company's lead mannan-binding lectin-associated serine protease-2 (MASP-2) inhibitor being developed for complement-related diseases…”


     From the Omeros press release, “This new trial expands the company's MASP platform, which includes an OMS721 Phase 3 program in progress for the treatment of atypical hemolytic uremic syndrome (aHUS) as well as an ongoing Phase 2 program of OMS721 for the treatment of other thrombotic microangiopathies (TMAs).  This new Phase 2 clinical trial includes patients with corticosteroid-dependent IgA nephropathy, membranous nephropathy, C3 glomerulopathy and lupus nephritis. Evidence implicates the complement system, and specifically the lectin pathway, in the pathogenesis of each of these serious diseases.”
