Eiger BioPharmaceuticals Announces First Patients Dosed with Peginterferon Lambda in Phase 3 TOGETHER Study of Newly Diagnosed COVID-19 Outpatients
Excerpt from the Press Release:
PALO ALTO, Calif., July 6, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Eiger BioPharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq:EIGR), a commercial-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on the development and commercialization of targeted therapies for serious rare and ultra-rare diseases, today announced that the first patients were dosed with Peginterferon Lambda (Lambda) in the Phase 3 TOGETHER platform study in outpatients with COVID-19. Lambda is administered as a convenient, one-time, subcutaneous dose.
TOGETHER is a multi-center, investigator-sponsored, randomized, placebo-controlled Phase 3 study evaluating multiple therapeutics in newly diagnosed, outpatients with COVID-19. The primary endpoint is a clinical outcome comparing emergency room visits and/or hospitalization in each active arm versus placebo. Each arm targets enrollment of up to 800 patients at high risk for developing complications from progression of COVID-19, with planned interim analyses for futility.
“Effective treatments are desperately needed for newly diagnosed COVID-19 outpatients that can be quickly and easily administered upon diagnosis, outside the hospital,” said David Cory, President and CEO of Eiger. “Lambda stimulates immune responses that are critical for the development of host protection during viral infections and may be ideal for addressing variants of SARS-CoV-2, which remain an ongoing concern with approved monoclonal antibodies and vaccines. We are excited to include Lambda in the TOGETHER study and look forward to reporting results in the future.”
