About vTv Therapeutics
vTv Therapeutics Inc. is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company engaged in the discovery and development of orally administered small molecule drug candidates to fill significant unmet medical needs. vTv has a pipeline of clinical drug candidates led by programs for the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease and diabetes as well as treatment of inflammatory disorders.
The STEADFAST study, two independent and identical randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled Phase 3 trials (Part A and Part B), was designed to investigate the safety and efficacy of azeliragon as a potential treatment for patients with mild Alzheimer’s disease. The 18-month study targeted enrollment of 800 patients (400 in each trial). The first trial enrolled patients in the United States and Canada who had a clinical diagnosis of mild Alzheimer’s disease and an MRI consistent with this diagnosis. Enrollment of the second trial included study sites in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. In April 2018, results were announced that the Part A Study failed to meet either co-primary endpoint and clinical trials involving azeliragon, including the Part B Study and the open-label extension study were terminated, although the majority of patients in the Part B Study had at least 12 months’ worth of data at the time of closure. In June 2018, topline efficacy results from the Part B Study were announced showing that the study also failed to meet either of the co-primary endpoints.
