RAISE-XT: An interim analysis of safety and efficacy in an open-label extension study of zilucoplan in patients with myasthenia gravis
Autoimmune Neurology
P1 - Poster Session 1 (8:00 AM-9:00 AM)
6-007
Long-term data from RAISE-XT (NCT04225871), a Phase 3, multicenter, open-label extension study, will enhance our understanding of the safety and efficacy of the C5 inhibitor zilucoplan in patients with gMG. 
Evaluate the safety and efficacy of zilucoplan in patients with generalized myasthenia gravis (gMG). 
Adults (≥18, <75 years) with gMG who completed a qualifying zilucoplan study (NCT03315130/NCT04115293) self-administered daily subcutaneous injections of zilucoplan 0.3 mg/kg. Primary outcome was incidence of treatment-emergent adverse events (TEAEs). Secondary outcomes included change from qualifying study baseline to Extension Week 12 (Week E12) in Myasthenia Gravis Activities of Daily Living (MG-ADL) score, responder rates for MG-ADL and Quantitative Myasthenia Gravis (QMG; reduction of ≥3 points and ≥5 points without rescue therapy, respectively), and minimal symptom expression (MSE; MG-ADL 0/1). 
Among 199 patients enrolled in RAISE-XT, 104 continued zilucoplan from their parent study (zilucoplan group) and 95 switched to zilucoplan from placebo (placebo-switch group). Median exposure at data cut-off was 253 days (range 29–1434). TEAEs occurred in 169 (84.9%) patients; 46 (23.1%) patients experienced a serious TEAE. At Week E12, LS mean changes in MG-ADL score for the zilucoplan and placebo-switch groups (after 24 and 12 weeks of zilucoplan, respectively) were −6.30 (95% CI: −7.44, −5.15) and −6.32 (95% CI: −8.00, −4.65). MG-ADL responder rates improved from extension study baseline through Week E12 (zilucoplan: 75.0% to 80.3% of patients; placebo-switch: 52.2% to 79.7%); a similar effect was observed on QMG responder rates. MSE responder rate increased through Week E12 (zilucoplan: 19.6% to 26.8% of patients; placebo-switch: 7.8% to 29.0%). 
In this interim analysis of RAISE-XT, zilucoplan demonstrated a favorable long-term safety profile and sustained efficacy. Responder rates improved from extension study baseline in both the zilucoplan and placebo-switch groups. Funding: UCB Pharma.
