Phase III CAPTAIN study of Trelegy Ellipta in patients with asthma meets primary endpoint

GlaxoSmithKline plc (LSE/NYSE: GSK) and Innoviva, Inc. (NASDAQ: INVA) today announced headline results from the pivotal phase III CAPTAIN study of once-daily single inhaler triple therapy Trelegy Ellipta (fluticasone furoate/umeclidinium/vilanterol: FF/UMEC/VI) compared to Relvar/Breo Ellipta (FF/VI), in the treatment of patients living with uncontrolled asthma.

The study met its primary endpoint, demonstrating a statistically significant 110mL improvement in lung function (measured by change from baseline in trough FEV(1) at 24 weeks of treatment) for FF/UMEC/VI 100/62.5/25mcg (p<0.001, 95% CI: 66-153 mL) compared with Relvar/Breo 100/25mcg and a statistically significant 92mL improvement in trough FEV(1) for FF/UMEC/VI 200/62.5/25mcg versus Relvar/Breo 200/25mcg (p<0.001, 95% CI: 49-135 mL).

The key secondary endpoint was annualised rate of moderate/severe exacerbations for FF/UMEC/VI (100/62.5/25 and 200/62.5/25) versus Relvar/Breo (100/25 and 200/25) and demonstrated a 13% (95% CI: -5.2 to 28.1) reduction in exacerbations, however this was not statistically significant. Therefore, all subsequent analyses were considered descriptive.

Dr. Hal Barron, Chief Scientific Officer and President, R&D, GSK, said: "We believe a once-daily single inhaler triple therapy that improves lung function is an advance for patients with uncontrolled asthma since this option is not currently available. We plan to submit these data for regulatory review after the full dataset is available."

CAPTAIN was also designed to investigate two further doses of FF/UMEC/VI (100/31.25/25 and 200/31.25/25 mcg) compared to Relvar/Breo (100/25 and 200/25). There were increases in trough FEV(1) of a similar magnitude to those of FF/UMEC/VI 100/62.5/25 and 200/62.5/25, with no difference in exacerbation rates.

The safety profile of FF/UMEC/VI was consistent with the known profile of the individual components and their combinations. Adverse event rates were similar across all six study arms with the most common adverse events being reported as nasopharyngitis (13-15%), headache (5-9%), upper respiratory tract infection (3-6%) and bronchitis (3-5%).

Dr. Paul Meunier, Vice President of Respiratory Medicine at Innoviva noted that: "The CAPTAIN study has shown that triple therapy in a single inhaler provides a potential new treatment option for asthma management in patients uncontrolled on ICS/LABA."

Full results from CAPTAIN will be submitted for future presentation at upcoming scientific meetings and in peer-reviewed publications.

About CAPTAIN

CAPTAIN (Clinical study of Asthma Patients receiving Triple therapy through A single INhaler) is a randomised, double-blind, active controlled, six-arm parallel group, global multicentre study evaluating FF/UMEC/VI (100/31.25/25, 100/62.5/25, 200/31.25/25 and 200/62.5/25 mcg) versus FF/VI (100/25 and 200/25 mcg) given once-daily to patients whose asthma is inadequately controlled despite treatment with ICS/LABA (>250mcg/day fluticasone propionate, or equivalent) maintenance asthma medication. In the study 2,436 patients were treated across 15 countries with approximately 400 patients randomly assigned to each of the six treatment arms.

CAPTAIN evaluated as its primary endpoint the change from baseline in trough Forced Expiratory Volume in 1 second (FEV(1) ) at 24 weeks of treatment. The key secondary endpoint was the annualised rate of moderate/severe asthma exacerbations.

About Trelegy Ellipta (FF/UMEC/VI)

Trelegy Ellipta is a combination of three molecules in a single inhaler. It contains fluticasone furoate, an inhaled corticosteroid, umeclidinium, a long-acting muscarinic antagonist; and vilanterol, a long-acting beta agonist, delivered in GSK's Ellipta dry powder inhaler. FF/UMEC/VI 100/62.5/25 has been approved under the brand name Trelegy Ellipta since 2017 for use in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

Trelegy Ellipta is indicated in the US for the long-term, once-daily, maintenance treatment of airflow obstruction in patients with COPD, including chronic bronchitis and/or emphysema. Trelegy Ellipta is also indicated to reduce exacerbations of COPD in patients with a history of exacerbations.

Trelegy Ellipta is not approved for the relief of acute bronchospasm or the treatment of asthma anywhere in the world.

Important Safety Information (ISI)

The following ISI is based on the Highlights section of the US Prescribing Information for Trelegy Ellipta. Please consult the full Prescribing Information for all the labelled safety information.

Trelegy Ellipta is NOT indicated for the relief of acute bronchospasm or for the treatment of asthma.

Trelegy Ellipta is contraindicated in patients with severe hypersensitivity to milk proteins or any of the ingredients.

LABA monotherapy increases the risk of serious asthma-related events.

Trelegy Ellipta should not be initiated in patients experiencing episodes of acutely deteriorating COPD. Do not use Trelegy Ellipta to treat acute symptoms.

Trelegy Ellipta should not be used in combination with other medicines containing LABA because of risk of overdose.

Candida albicans infection of the mouth and pharynx has occurred in patients treated with fluticasone furoate, a component of Trelegy Ellipta. Monitor patients periodically. Advise the patient to rinse his/her mouth with water without swallowing after inhalation to help reduce the risk.

There is an increased risk of pneumonia in patients with COPD taking Trelegy Ellipta. Monitor patients for signs and symptoms of pneumonia.

Patients who use corticosteroids are at risk for potential worsening of infections (e.g. existing tuberculosis; fungal, bacterial, viral, or parasitic infections; or ocular herpes simplex). Use Trelegy Ellipta with caution in patients with these infections. More serious or even fatal course of chickenpox or measles can occur in susceptible patients.

There is a risk of impaired adrenal function when transferring from systemic corticosteroids. Taper patients slowly from systemic corticosteroids if transferring to Trelegy Ellipta.

Hypercorticism and adrenal suppression may occur with very high dosages or at the regular dosage of Trelegy Ellipta in susceptible individuals. If such changes occur, consider appropriate therapy.

If paradoxical bronchospasm occurs, discontinue Trelegy Ellipta and institute alternative therapy.

Use Trelegy Ellipta with caution in patients with cardiovascular disorders because of beta-adrenergic stimulation.

Assess patents for decrease in bone mineral density initially and periodically thereafter after prescribing Trelegy Ellipta.

Consider referral to an ophthalmologist in patients who develop ocular symptoms or use Trelegy Ellipta long term. Worsening of narrow-angle glaucoma may occur. Use with caution in patients with narrow-angle glaucoma and instruct patients to contact a healthcare provider immediately if symptoms occur.

Worsening of urinary retention may occur in patients taking Trelegy Ellipta. Use with caution in patients with prostatic hyperplasia or bladder-neck obstruction and instruct patients to contact a healthcare provider immediately if symptoms occur.

Use Trelegy Ellipta with caution in patients with convulsive disorders, thyrotoxicosis, diabetes mellitus, and ketoacidosis.

Be alert to hypokalemia and hyperglycemia in patients taking Trelegy Ellipta.

The most common adverse reactions reported for Trelegy Ellipta (incidence >=1%) are upper respiratory tract infection, pneumonia, bronchitis, oral candidiasis, headache, back pain, arthralgia, influenza, sinusitis, pharyngitis, rhinitis, dysgeusia, constipation, urinary tract infection, diarrhea, gastroenteritis, oropharyngeal pain, cough, and dysphonia.

About asthma

Asthma is a chronic lung disease that inflames and narrows the airways. Asthma affects 358 million people worldwide. Despite medical advances, more than half of patients continue to experience poor control and significant symptoms. At least 30% of patients adherent to ICS/LABA therapy remain uncontrolled which can negatively impact their lives.

The causes of asthma are not completely understood but likely involve an interaction between a person's genetic make-up and the environment. Key risk factors are inhaled substances that provoke allergic reactions or irritate the airways.
