AL Amyloidosis Understanding

AL Amyloidosis: Overview

Amyloid light-chain amyloidosis, (AL) is the most common form of systemic amyloidosis and is associated with an underlying plasma cell dyscrasia. AL amyloidosis is caused by a bone marrow disorder.  The bone marrow in the center of bones produces cells in the blood system, including “plasma cells.”  These plasma cells are the part of the immune system that makes antibodies for fighting infections.  The term “immunoglobulin” refers to the class of proteins that function as antibodies. Immunoglobulins are composed of four protein chains: two light chains, eitherkappa or lambda light chains, and two heavy chains, of which there are several types. These proteins are produced by the plasma cells in the bone marrow.  In AL patients, these plasma cells produce an abnormal antibody (immunoglobulin) protein. For AL amyloidosis, it is the “light chains” that become misfolded, and the abnormal, misfolded result is the forming of amyloid.  With AL amyloidosis, the “A” is for amyloid and the “L” is for light chain. The symptoms of AL amyloidosis vary by patient. Initially, the symptoms can be minor or similar to those of many other conditions or systemic diseases.  Some symptoms can announce themselves quickly and be very noticeable.  For each patient, the symptoms will depend on which organs are affected by the amyloid deposits.  It also depends on the degree that the organ function is impaired. Fatigue, weight loss and swelling are the most common symptoms.

Impairment of many organs, nerves and soft tissues can cause symptoms, among them the kidneys, heart, the GI tract (the digestive system) and the nervous system. The nonspecific and often vague nature of symptoms that are associated with AL amyloidosis frequently leads to delays in diagnosis such that organ dysfunction is advanced by the time treatment is initiated. The diagnosis of AL amyloidosis should be considered in patients with unexplained proteinuria, cardiomyopathy, neuropathy, or hepatomegaly and in patients with multiple myeloma that has atypical manifestations. The diagnosis of AL amyloidosis requires demonstration of amyloid in tissue and demonstration of a plasma cell dyscrasia. The current therapeutic approach to systemic amyloidosis is based on the observations that organ dysfunction improves and survival increases if the synthesis of the amyloidogenic protein precursor is halted. Therefore, the aim of therapy in AL amyloidosis is to reduce rapidly the supply of amyloidogenic monoclonal light chains by suppressing the underlying plasma cell dyscrasia. Decisions about specific treatment regimens for individual patients must take into consideration the balance between anticipated treatment efficacy and tolerability.

It also helps to understand clinical trial details, expressive pharmacological action, agreements and collaborations, and the latest news and press releases.


AL Amyloidosis Emerging Drugs


CAEL-101: Caelum Biosciences 

CAEL-101 is a first-in-class anti-amyloid antibody designed to improve organ function by reducing or eliminating amyloid deposits in patients with amyloid light chain (AL) amyloidosis. Alexion is collaborating with Caelum Biosciences to develop CAEL-101 for light chain (AL) amyloidosis, a rare systemic disorder that causes misfolded immunoglobulin light chain protein to build up in and around tissues, resulting in progressive and widespread organ damage. Alexion and Caelum Biosciences are conducting the Cardiac Amyloid Reaching for Extended Survival (CARES) Phase 3 clinical program to evaluate CAEL-101, a first-in-class amyloid fibril targeted therapy, in combination with standard-of-care therapy in AL amyloidosis. CAEL-101 has received Orphan Drug Designation from both the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and European Medicine Agency as a therapy for patients with AL amyloidosis.


Ixazomib: Takeda

Ninlaro (ixazomib) is a proteasome inhibitor. Ixazomib preferentially binds and inhibits the chymotrypsin-like activity of the beta 5 subunit of the 20S proteasome. Ixazomib induced apoptosis of multiple myeloma cell lines in vitro. The drug is being evaluated in Phase III stage of development for the treatment of patients with AL Amyloidosis.


Belantamab mafodotin: GlaxoSmithKline

Belantamab mafodotin, or GSK2857916, is an afucosylated monoclonal antibody that targets B cell maturation antigen (BCMA) conjugated to the microtubule distrupter monomethyl auristatin-F (MMAF).1 Afucosylation of the Fc region of monoclonal antibodies enhances binding to the Fc region, which enhances antibody dependant cell mediated cytoxicity. Phase II clinical Study of Belantamab Mafodotin has been initiated to treat Patients with Relapsed or Refractory AL Amyloidosis.


STI 6129 : Sorrento Therapeutics

STI-6129 is an ADC with covalently bound duostatin tubulin inhibitors (Duostatin 5) using a proprietary site-specific C-LOCK™ chemical linker designed to reduce the premature systemic release of duostatin and avoid the potential for toxicity, particular ocular toxicity, seen with other ADCs, especially first-generation products. STI-6129 has demonstrated an improved therapeutic index in animal models, as compared to traditional non-selective conjugates. STI-6129 has the potential for being a first-line treatment for amyloidosis as well as second line in those patients who have developed daratumumab resistance, an anti-CD38 mAb alone. STI-6129 binds to different epitopes than daratumumab and the addition of the targeted delivery of the duostatin can potentially manage those patients who have become refractory to such treatments.
