Hypertension Vaccine CYT006-AngQb Achieves Strong Blood Pressure,Reduction During Important Early Morning Period When Most Adverse,Cardiovascular Events Occur

on, which
is a counter-reaction of the body potentially decreasing the efficacy of current drug therapy1. In contrast to small molecule inhibitors, which display large variations in serum drug levels throughout the day, the vaccine-induced anti-angiotensin II antibodies were found to decline with a half-life of about 4 months. This may lead to a practically continuous inhibition of angiotensin II for weeks, which may in part account for the minor reactive rise observed in plasma renin concentration, and to the potent effect of the vaccine in early morning hours, as is further explained in the quote of Dr. Müller below.

A further important finding of the study is the dependence of efficacy on both the dose of the vaccine and the levels of induced anti-angiotensin II antibodies. Two doses of the vaccine, 100 ?g and 300 ?g, were tested in the trial. The induced anti-angiotensin antibody levels were significantly higher at the 300 ?g than at the 100 ?g dose (p=0.0098). Accordingly, blood pressure reduction was much larger and only significant at the 300 ?g dose (p=0.0498). Efficacy was thus driven by a longlasting, although reversible antibody response. Dr. Philipp Müller, EVP Clinical Development at Cytos Biotechnology comments on the study results:

“These data highlight a very important new aspect of the vaccine CYT006-AngQb, namely its exceptionally good control of the early morning blood pressure. So far, inhibition of the reninangiotensin system has been studied clinically only with small molecule inhibitors, which all produce a daily pattern of peaks and troughs in drug levels. Here, a trough in drug levels coincides with a natural rise of the blood pressure in early morning hours. The combination of these effects may lead to insufficient control of the early morning blood pressure surge. An intervention with a different pharmacokinetic profile like the vaccine approach, which avoids daily peaks and troughs in drug l
