Foresee Pharmaceuticals Receives Positive Recommendation from DSMB to Continue Pjhase 3 Casppian Stu

Foresee Pharmaceuticals (TPEx: 6576), („Foresee“) today announces the positive safety review by the independent Data and Safety Monitoring Board for its Casppian Phase 3 registration study. The DSMB recommended that Foresee Pharmaceuticals continue the trial with a minor amended protocol.

The Casppian Phase 3 study is an open-label, multicenter, multinational clinical trial to evaluate the efficacy, safety, and pharmacokinetics of Leuprolide (FP-001) 42 mg-controlled release in patients with central (Gonadotropin-Dependent) precocious puberty (CPP). Foresee’s Leuprolide injectable emulsion, 42 mg (marketed under the brand name CAMCEVI®), is currently approved for the treatment of adult patients with advanced prostate cancer and has demonstrated positive efficacy and safety results with statistically significant treatment effects in adult male patients with advanced prostate cancer.

About CPP

GnRH-dependent CPP is a condition that causes early sexual development in girls and boys, as their „hypothalamus – pituitary gland – gonadal axis“ is activated too early, causing children to enter puberty prematurely, between 2 years and 9 years of age.

CPP patients are at risk of having significantly short stature as adults in addition to social, psychological, and emotional issues, including lower self-esteem, stress, anxiety, and depression, which may negatively impact their quality of life. According to the NORD (National Organization for Rare Disorders) website, CPP occurs in 1 out of 5,000 to 10,000 children. It is estimated that approximately 80% – 90% of CPP cases are idiopathic, especially in females, with a female-to-male ratio of around 20. Gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) agonists, including leuprolide, are the most widely used treatment for CPP.
