Abstract Details

MRI, Efficacy, and Safety of Tolebrutinib in Patients with Highly Active Disease (HAD): 2-Year Data from the Phase 2b Long-term Safety (LTS) Study
Multiple Sclerosis
P6 - Poster Session 6 (5:30 PM-6:30 PM)
3-017

In the Phase 2b trial, brain-penetrant tolebrutinib was well-tolerated with dose-dependent reductions in new/enlarging MRI lesions.

To report MRI, efficacy, and safety outcomes at Week (W) 96 (2 years) of long-term safety (LTS) extension (NCT03996291) of the Phase 2b trial (NCT03889639) of tolebrutinib in participants with relapsing multiple sclerosis and highly active disease (HAD).

In the double-blind LTS Part A, participants continued receiving tolebrutinib dose (5, 15, 30, or 60mg/day). In open-label Part B, all participants received 60mg/day. HAD was defined as one relapse in the year prior to screening and one of the following: >1 gadolinium-enhancing lesion within the prior 6 months or ≥9 T2-lesions at baseline or ≥2 relapses in the prior year. Outcomes included gadolinium-enhancing and T2-lesions, annualized relapse rate (ARR), and Expanded Disability Status Scale (EDSS).

61 participants met HAD criteria at baseline; 60 continued in Part A, 59 transitioned to Part B. As of 7 March 2022, 55 (92%) remained on study. New gadolinium-enhancing lesions remained low in 60/60-mg arm through W96 and were reduced in other arms W48 through W96, except for 5/60-mg (mean±SD at W96: 2.00±3.83, 0.56±1.04, 0.47±1.13, 0.23±0.44 in 5/60-, 15/60-, 30/60-, 60/60-mg arms, respectively). New/enlarging T2-lesions remained low for 15/60, 30/60, and 60/60mg. T2-lesion volume remained unchanged for 60/60mg. Most common treatment-emergent adverse events (TEAEs) were COVID-19, nasopharyngitis, headache, and upper respiratory tract infection. There was no dose-relationship for TEAE/serious AE (Part A) and no new safety findings for participants switching to 60mg (Part B). In participants receiving tolebrutinib 60mg/day for >8 weeks, ARR was 0.10 (95%CI: 0.02-0.66) and 92.9% remained relapse-free at W96. Mean EDSS were stable through W96.

Through W96, in HAD cohort, tolebrutinib 60mg demonstrated favorable safety (similar to overall population), tolerability, and low ARR. New gadolinium-enhancing lesions remained low for 60/60-mg arm.
