MyoKardia, Inc. (Nasdaq: MYOK) today announced that the first patient has been dosed in the company’s Phase 2 clinical trial of danicamtiv (formerly MYK-491) in people with primary dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) thought to be caused by genetic mutations of the sarcomere. Danicamtiv is MyoKardia’s most advanced clinical candidate being developed for the treatment of genetic dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) and other targeted populations with conditions of reduced systolic function.
DCM is a disease of the myocardium characterized by left ventricular enlargement. The weakened and distended left ventricle lacks sufficient contractile force to adequately pump oxygenated blood out to meet the body’s needs. Danicamtiv binds directly to and activates myosin, the heart’s motor protein, to boost the power of each contraction without impacting the ability of the heart to relax and fill with oxygenated blood. In clinical studies, danicamtiv has been well tolerated and has been shown to activate myosin, resulting in enhanced left ventricular contractility, including meaningful improvements in stroke volume, and improved left atrial volume and function.1.
