Familial Adenomatous Polyposis Understanding
Familial Adenomatous Polyposis: Overview
Familial Adenomatous Polyposis is a serious, life-threatening, genetic disorder and is characterized by the initial development of many tens to thousands of adenomas in the rectum and colon during the second decade of life. FAP is caused by a germ line mutation of the adenomatous polyposis coli (APC) gene. The inheritance of FAP is autosomal dominant. FAP causes extra tissue (polyps) to form in large intestine (colon) and rectum. Polyps can also occur in the upper gastrointestinal tract, especially the upper part of small intestine (duodenum). If untreated, the polyps in the colon and rectum are likely to become cancerous.
The symptoms of Familial Adenomatous Polyposis include:
- Blood or mucous in the stools
- Changes in bowel habits
- Abdominal pain
- Weight loss
A diagnosis of Familial Adenomatous Polyposis is made based upon a thorough clinical evaluation, a detailed patient history, and a variety of specialized tests. Screening is done using sigmoidoscopy, colonoscopy, esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD) and side-viewing duodenoscopy. CT or MRI imaging of the abdomen and pelvis may be used, especially to evaluate desmoid tumors. Genetic testing can confirm the mutation and disease.
Treatment of FAP Patients are managed through regular endoscopic surveillance. Polyps are controlled by polypectomy or ablation. Surgical options include: Colectomy with ileo-rectal anastomosis, Proctocolectomy with ileal pouch anal anastomosis Proctocolectomy with permanent ileostomy. A combination of medications, including nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, anti-estrogen and chemotherapy is provided for desmoid tumors. Research is continue to evaluate additional treatments for FAP. Medications like sulindac (Clinoril®) and celecoxib (Celebrex®) have been shown to reduce the number of colorectal polyps and delay the timing of the first surgery. These medications can also control polyps in the pouch or rectum after surgery, or the need for additional surgeries.
- The companies and academics are working to assess challenges and seek opportunities that could influence Familial Adenomatous Polyposis R&D. The therapies under development are focused on novel approaches to treat/improve Familial Adenomatous Polyposis.
- In August 2019, Emtora Biosciences announced that it will receive a Seed Award grant totaling $3m from the Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas (CPRIT). The grant will support a Phase 2a trial of the company’s lead drug candidate, eRapaTM, in the treatment of the rare disease Familial Adenomatous Polyposis.
Familial Adenomatous Polyposis Emerging Drugs Chapters
This segment of the Familial Adenomatous Polyposis report encloses its detailed analysis of various drugs in different stages of clinical development, including phase II, I, preclinical and Discovery. It also helps to understand clinical trial details, expressive pharmacological action, agreements and collaborations, and the latest news and press releases.
Familial Adenomatous Polyposis Emerging Drugs
ALFA: SLA Pharma
ALFA is an experimental drug that is an arachidonic acid modulators. Alfa is currently in a Phase 3 clinical trial to assess the efficacy and safety of eicosapentaenoic acid free fatty acid (EPA-FFA) for patients with Familial Adenomatous Polyposis & ulcerative colitis (UC).
eRapa: Emtora Biosciences
eRapa (Sirolimus) is a proprietary, patented, micro-encapsulated formulation of rapamycin that protects the active ingredient from rapid, low pH degradation in the stomach. The eRapa (encapsulated rapamycin) drug product consists of sub-micron rapamycin particles incorporated into poly (methyl methacrylate) polymer (Eudragit® L 100 / S 100). eRapa modulates the mTOR pathway, which controls cell growth, proliferation, nutrient transport, autophagy, and survival.
