Paris, France, Cambridge (Massachusetts, United States), April 19th, 2022 - 8am CET - Biophytis SA (NasdaqCM: BPTS, Euronext Growth Paris: ALBPS), ("Biophytis" or the "Company"), a clinical-stage biotechnology company focused on the development of therapeutics that slow the degenerative processes associated with aging, including severe respiratory failure in patients suffering from COVID-19, today announces it will present and discuss the results of Sarconeos (BIO101) development program in Sarcopenia at the 12th annual International Conference on Frailty and Sarcopenia Research (ICFSR) to be held virtually and on site in Boston from April 20 to April 22, 2022.

ICFSR is the key international scientific event on Frailty and Sarcopenia and is attended by leading researchers, physicians and Biotech/Pharma in this field. On Friday 22, April, Cendrine Tourette, PhD (SARA Project Leader) and Pr.

About SARA development program

  • Major operational milestones achieved during 2021 as regards to our Phase 2 SARA-INT trial for the treatment of Sarcopenia:

 

  • On October 4th, the Company announced full results of the study: Sarconeos (BIO101) at the highest dose of 350 mg bid showed an increase of 0.09 meter per second (m/s) in the FAS population and of 0.10 m/s in the PP population compared to placebo in observed data, for the 400MWT in gait speed, after 6 months of treatment in observed data. The Minimal Clinically Important Difference (MCID) for the 400MWT in sarcopenia is 0.1 m/s.

  • The product also showed a very good safety profile at the doses of 175 mg bid and of 350 mg bid with no Serious Adverse Events (SAE) related to the product.

 

  • 2022 outlook and perspectives for the SARA program in Sarcopenia:

 

  • Following the first meeting with the FDA in January 2022, a second meeting is planned in Q3 2022 to discuss the SARA development plan including the Phase 2-3 protocol. The objective is to have a FPI (First patient In) for this new study at the end of H2 2022.

  • We also plan to have discussions with EMA during H2 2022, in order to obtain scientific advice on the Phase 2 results and the progression toward a Phase 2-3.

  • These plans remain subject to regulatory authorizations and procedures, any delays in patient recruitment or retention, interruptions in sourcing or supply chain, and to COVID-19-related delays.
