Notes to the editor

About cenerimod
Cenerimod is a selective sphingosine-1-phosphate receptor 1 (S1P1) modulator, which potentially offers a novel approach for systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) – a disease with limited treatment options.

In December 2018, Idorsia initiated a multiple-dose, efficacy and safety study with cenerimod for the treatment of adult patients with moderately to severely active, autoantibody-positive SLE. The multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel-group study will enroll around 500 patients, who will be randomized into four cenerimod treatment arms: 0.5, 1, 2, and 4 mg once-daily orally or placebo for up to 12 months. Patients will receive study treatment in addition to background SLE therapy, which will be kept as stable as possible to avoid confounding the treatment effect. The study aims to validate the appropriate cenerimod dose, patient population and endpoints for further development in SLE.
In December 2017, the US FDA designated the investigation of cenerimod for the treatment of SLE as a Fast Track development program. The Fast Track designation is intended to promote communication and collaboration between the FDA and the company for drugs that treat serious conditions and fill an unmet medical need.
