SUSTAIN Clinical Trial Results Show Crizanlizumab Reduced Sickle Cell–Related Pain Crises

Results from the Phase 2 SUSTAIN clinical trial demonstrated that crizanlizumab (SEG101, Selexys Pharmaceuticals, Novartis), an anti-P-selectin antibody, reduced by 45.3% the median annual rate of sickle cell-related pain crises (SCPC), compared to placebo in patients with or without hydroxyurea therapy, a drug used to reduce the rate of painful attacks in sickle-cell disease (SCD). Crizanlizumab also significantly extended time to first and second SCPC, the researchers reported.

These results were recently presented at the ASH Annual Meeting and Exposition, and published in the New England Journal of Medicine.
