- Posters highlight clinically meaningful improvement in HAE symptoms observed in the first hours after treatment with PHVS416 (deucrictibant immediate-release capsules) as compared to placebo
ZUG, Switzerland, June 11, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Pharvaris PHVS, a clinical-stage company developing novel, oral bradykinin-B2-receptor antagonists to treat and prevent hereditary angioedema (HAE) attacks, today announced two presentations highlighting data from RAPIDe-1, a Phase 2 study of PHVS416 (deucrictibant immediate-release capsules) for the on-demand treatment of HAE attacks, included in the “Flash Talks on Angioedema” session at the European Academy of Allergy & Clinical Immunology (EAACI) Hybrid Congress 2023, taking place in Hamburg, Germany, from June 9-11, 2023.

An effective oral therapy that provides rapid and complete symptom relief could address some of these barriers.”
“The results from the Phase 2 RAPIDe-1 clinical study show that treatment of an HAE attack with PHVS416 (deucrictibant immediate-release capsules) resulted in rapid and clinically meaningful improvement in symptoms as compared to placebo,” said Peng Lu, M.D., Ph.D., Chief Medical Officer of Pharvaris. “The study met the primary and all key secondary endpoints, providing evidence for the…
