ChemoCentryx initiates phase II CCX140 trial

Monday, December 12, 2011 12:40 PM

ChemoCentryx has initiatied a phase II clinical trial for CCX140, an orally-administered small molecule for the treatment of diabetic kidney disease (diabetic nephropathy). CCX140 is a novel CCR2 inhibitor with a pharmacological profile unlike that of other CCR2 compounds that have been known to be tested by other sponsors. CCX140 works by blocking the infiltration and activation of certain populations of monocyte and macrophages and other cells bearing CCR2 that occurs during inflammation. This mechanism of action provides selective treatment of the disease without compromising other immune functions.

ChemoCentryx initiates phase II CCX168 trial

Monday, October 17, 2011 11:49 AM

ChemoCentryx has initiated a phase II clinical trial for CCX168, an orally-administered small molecule for the treatment of anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibody (ANCA)-associated vasculitis (AAV), a disease which can lead to renal and pulmonary failure.  CCX168 specifically targets the C5a receptor (C5aR), a potent pro-inflammatory mediator that is involved in AAV as well as several other autoimmune diseases.  This randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial will evaluate the safety and tolerability of CCX168 in patients with ANCA-associated renal vasculitis while assessing the potential for reducing or eliminating the use of corticosteroids in these patients.
