Acer Therapeutics Inc. (NASDAQ: ACER) announced that it had reached full enrollment in its pivotal study, assessing the bioequivalence of ACER-001 by comparing it to BUPHENYL (sodium phenylbutyrate). Urea cycle disorders (UCDs) are being treated with ACER-001, a treatment developed by Acer.
Approximately 36 healthy adults will participate in a single-center, single-blind, randomized crossover trial comparing ACER-001 to BUPHENYL under fed conditions. The first quarter of 2021 is expected to see the results of the trial.
Acer intends to submit to the FDA a request for a pre-NDA meeting on ACER-001 to successfully complete ongoing development activities.
A UCD is a condition that results from genetic abnormalities that result in a deficiency of one of the six enzymes enzymatically catalyzing the ammonia cycle, which can lead to hyperammonemia.
The ACER-001 formulation is a taste-masked powder formed to deliver sodium phenylbutyrate via suspension or oral tablet for immediate release. Using a microencapsulation process, ACER-001 is being developed to treat various metabolic disorders, including UCDs and Maple Syrup Urine Disease (MSUD).
