Reata Pharmaceuticals, a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company, today announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) confirmed that the modified Friedreich’s Ataxia Rating Scale (mFARS) is an acceptable primary endpoint for Part 2 of the MOXIe trial for omaveloxolone in Friedreich’s ataxia (FA).

The FDA communication was made in response to the Company’s request that the FDA confirm its prior guidance that, depending on the MOXIe trial results, mFARS could be appropriate to support approval of omaveloxolone for FA under Subpart H. In the recent communication, FDA indicated that it may consider either accelerated or full approval based on the overall results of the trial and strength of the data. FDA also recommended that the Company extend the treatment duration for Part 2 of the study and add a straightforward patient-reported or performance-based outcome endpoint to the study.
