KalVista Pharmaceuticals Presents Real-World Data on Burden of Treatment and HAE Attack Journey at the 2024 HAEi Regional Conference Americas

Delays in treating attacks lead to increased anxiety, quality of life issues, higher frequency of returning attacks, and suboptimal clinical outcomes in both on-demand and prophylaxis patients -

KalVista Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: KALV), a clinical stage pharmaceutical company focused on the discovery, development, and commercialization of oral, small molecule protease inhibitors, today announced that it presented multiple analyses of the relationship between the time to attack treatment and the effects delays in treatment have on clinical outcomes of people living with hereditary angioedema (HAE) at the 2024 HAEi Regional Conference Americas that took place in Panama City, Panama.

“These data show once again that people living with HAE still face challenges in following established guidelines for treating their attacks,” said Ben Palleiko, Chief Executive Officer of KalVista. “Even short treatment delays can lead to worse clinical outcomes, and despite efficacious on-demand treatments, the fact that they need to be injected results in barriers which lead to significant underuse and resultant overuse of long-term prophylaxis. If approved, sebetralstat should enable improved compliance with these guidelines, which has the potential to help people with HAE to better control their disease with a lower overall burden of treatment.“

The following presentations occurred at the 2024 HAEi Regional Conference Americas:

  • Relationship Between Time to ​On-demand Treatment and Quality of Life During Hereditary Angioedema Attacks: Sandra Christiansen, University of California San Diego, La Jolla, CA, United States (Oral Presentation)
    • Treatment delays are associated with lower QoL and poorer general health during HAE attack, emphasizing the benefits of compliance with HAE guidelines and greater awareness of the impact of delayed treatment on QoL
  • Characterizing the Negative Impact of Delayed On-Demand Treatment of HAE Attacks: Ricardo Zwiener, Servicio de Alergia e Inmunología Clínica, Hospital Universitario Austral, Pilar, Buenos Aires, Argentina (Poster Presentation)
    • The time to feeling in control of an HAE attack and time to feeling fully recovered were shorter for patients treating HAE attacks in <1 hour versus those who waited ≥1 hour
  • Anxiety Associated with Refilling On-demand Therapy for HAE Attacks Contributes to Treatment Delay and Non-Treatment: Anete S. Grumach, Clinical Immunology, Faculdade de Medicina, Centro Universitario FMABC, Santo Andre, Brazil (Poster Presentation)
    • Anxiety associated with not being able to refill on-demand treatment impacted treatment decisions, which contributed to treatment delay or resulted in non-treatment of HAE attacks
  • Treatment Patterns of Patients Requiring Redosing of an On-demand Treatment After the Return of an HAE Attack: William Lumry, Allergy and Asthma Research Associates, Dallas, Texas, United States. (Poster Presentation)
    • HAE attacks initially treated within 1 hour returned less frequently compared with attacks treated at 1 hour or longer
  • Anxiety Associated with On-Demand Treatment for Hereditary Angioedema (HAE) Attacks: Maeve O’Connor, Allergy, Asthma, & Immunology Relief of Charlotte, Charlotte, NC, United States (Poster Presentation)
    • Both adults and adolescents with HAE reported moderate to extreme anxiety when anticipating use of parenteral on-demand treatment, irrespective of use of on-demand only or on-demand plus LTP
  • Characteristics of Hereditary Angioedema Attacks Among Long-Term Prophylaxis Users: Maeve O’Connor, Allergy, Asthma, & Immunology Relief of Charlotte, Charlotte, NC, United States (Poster Presentation)
    • Among HAE patients who had treated a recent attack, the location and duration of the most recent attacks were similar between long-term prophylaxis (LTP) and on-demand only users
