Dyax Corp. Announces Presentation of KALBITOR(R) (ecallantide) Pediatric and Abdominal Attack Data

BURLINGTON, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Dyax Corp. (NASDAQ: DYAX) announced today that two poster presentations featuring updated KALBITOR® (ecallantide) data in pediatric patients with hereditary angioedema (HAE) and HAE patients with abdominal attacks were presented at the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology (ACAAI) 2012 Annual Scientific Meeting, held November 8-13, at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, CA.

Both presentations pooled results from patients enrolled in four different clinical trials of ecallantide for the treatment of acute HAE attacks: DX-88/19, an open-label continuation study; EDEMA2®, an open-label, Phase 2 dose-ranging, repeat-dosing study; and EDEMA3® and EDEMA4®, two Phase 3 double-blind, placebo-controlled studies. KALBITOR is indicated for the treatment of acute attacks of HAE in patients 16 years of age and older.

Commenting on the study "Clinical Trial Experience of Pediatric Patients Treated with Ecallantide for Acute Attacks of Hereditary Angioedema," Andrew MacGinnitie, MD, PhD, Associate Clinical Director, Division of Immunology at Boston Children's Hospital, and lead investigator of the study, stated:

"In order to provide patients with effective relief from the disease's often debilitating, acute attacks, it is important that pediatric and other specialist communities learn to diagnose and treat HAE as early as possible."

"Our clinical studies of KALBITOR reinforce its demonstrated ability to effectively treat various patient populations and attack locations," commented Dr. Burt Adelman, Executive Vice President and Chief Medical Officer at Dyax Corp.

"The presentation of these data is part of our ongoing effort to educate the healthcare community about hereditary angioedema and novel treatments such as KALBITOR. Dyax remains committed to providing an HAE support, education and treatment awareness program that is second to none."
