Fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva: Understanding

Fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva: Overview

Fibrodysplasia ossificans progressive (FOP) is described as a rare genetic disorder characterized by the organization of heterotopic hard tissues within the soft tissues, such as ligaments, tendons, and skeletal muscle. It comes under the category of an autosomal dominant disorder. The tissue formed in such patients is not just the mineralized calcium phosphate, but it resembles the new bone formation by osteoblast cells via endochondral ossification. Most of the patients who are suffering from Fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva can move their joints normally at the time of birth, but disability arises in various joints when they reach their 30’s because gradually hetero¬topic bones fuse and result in bridge formation with normal bones. Injury to soft tissues can lead to acute heterotopic bone formation in such patients hence invasive procedures, such as injection, surgical operation, and biopsy, are contraindicated.

Fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva is a typical monogenic disorder with the recurrent heterozygous gain of function mutation in the ACVR1/ALK2 gene located on chromosome 2, both in the sporadic and inherited cases, and involves the BMP (bone morphogenetic proteins) signaling pathway. This ACVR1/ALK2 gene encodes for a transmembrane serine/threonine (ser/thr) kinase receptor ALK2, which binds with the BMPs present in the bone matrix.

These BMPs induce the development of heterotopic bone in the skeletal muscle. The majority of cases of typical Fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva show a similar genetic mutation which consists of a change of nucleotide in the codon at position 617 (guanine->adenine) in the ACVR1/ALK2 gene. It results in a substitution mutation in the codon at a position 206 (arginine->histidine) within the ALK2 protein.

Some additional mutations are also noticed in exons 4 through 7 within the ACVR1/ALK2 gene, which results in a change in the expression of two domains, including Ser/Thr kinase and the glycine/serine-rich. Both of these domains play an important role in intracellular signaling.

Making a diagnosis of fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva was difficult for a long time as there were no reliable biomarkers for such cases that could be evaluated in urine or peripheral blood. The most common sites affected are the shoulders, neck, and spine. The median age of survival is roughly around 40 years. Death occurs in such cases primarily due to thoracic insufficiency syndrome and related complications. PCR is the main diagnostic modality for the analysis of genetic mutation in FOP.

Fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva Emerging Drugs

REGN2477: Regeneron Pharmaceuticals

REGN2477 (also known as garetosmab) is an antibody that binds to Activin A and blocks its activity. By binding and blocking Activin A, REN2477 prevents the formation and growth of HO in FOP. REGN2477 has received Orphan Drug status for FOP from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and orphan status for the treatment of FOP in the EU. Currently, the drug is being evaluated in the Phase III clinical trial for the treatment of Fibrodysplasia ossificans progressive.

IPN60130: Ipsen

IPN60130 (Fidrisertib) is an oral investigational drug designed to selectively target the mutant FOP receptor (ACVR1/ALK2), the underlying cause of FOP. FDA has granted Fast Track Designation to IPN60130 for the treatment of FOP. Currently, the drug is being evaluated in the Phase II clinical trial for the treatment of Fibrodysplasia ossificans progressive.
