Marianna Fontana, ESC 2022: NNC6019-0001, a phase II study for transthyretin amyloid cardiomyopathy
Transthyretin amyloid cardiomyopathy (ATTR-CM) is associated with progressive heart failure and at present, few disease-modifying treatments exist. NNC6019-0001 is a humanized monoclonal antibody designed to deplete amyloid fibrils that result in heart failure. In this touchCARDIO interview, we speak with Professor Marianna Fontana (National Amyloidosis Centre, University College London, Royal Free Campus, London, UK) to discuss the phase II study investigating NNC6019-0001 in patients with AATR-CM.
The abstract entitled ‘NNC60190001, a humanized monoclonal antibody, in patients with transthyretin amyloid cardiomyopathy (ATTRCM): rationale and study design of a phase 2, randomized, placebo controlled trial’ was presented at the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) Congress 2022, 26 – 29 August 2022.
