Efficacy and Safety of BCX7353 to Prevent Angioedema Attacks in Subjects With Hereditary Angioedema (APeX-1)

This 2-part study will evaluate the safety and efficacy of an oral treatment, BCX7353, in preventing angioedema attacks in subjects with hereditary angioedema (HAE). In Part 1 of the study, eligible subjects will be randomized to receive oral BCX7353 or placebo for 4 weeks. Assuming successful completion of Part 1, additional subjects will be randomized in Part 2 to one of 2 lower doses of BCX7353 or placebo. The study will compare the number of acute attacks in each treatment group, as well as a number of other clinical and pharmacologic outcomes, and the safety and tolerability of each dose of BCX7353 compared to placebo.

Are you ready for the 2017 Camino Walk?
After the very successful HAEi/AEDAF Camino Walk on the legendary Camino de Santiago in northwestern Spain during the days leading up to the HAE Global Conference 2016 in Madrid, quite a number of people have expressed an interest in repeating the experience in May next year.
Consequently HAEi has decided to go ahead and try to organize a Camino Walk to commemorate the global awareness day for HAE haeday :-) in 2017.
If a sufficient number of people sign up to fill one bus – or more – we will follow the well-known format: departure by bus from Madrid on Saturday 13 May, three days of walking with 15 to 20 kilometers per day on average, and return to Madrid on Wednesday 17 May. The third day of walking, when we would arrive at Santiago de Compostela, would appropriately coincide with haeday :-) in 2017. Returning to Madrid on 17 May, we would give the people who plan to attend the 10th C1 Deficiency Workshop in Budapest plenty of time to go there for the beginning of the event.
However, to organize another Camino Walk, HAEi needs to have fairly soon a reliable estimate of the number of people who would be participating.
Therefore, we kindly ask anyone interested to contact his or her national organization to find out how many people would be interested in going. Right now we are not asking for a formal commitment or registration, but we would like to know how many people are reliably serious about taking part in this event. When considering taking part in the 2017 Camino Walk please bear in mind that:

-There will no HAEi travel grants to/from Spain

– The price could be more or less the same as this year (200 EUR per person in shared double room/295 EUR per person in single room), but it may very well be more expensive
– There probably will not be as much leeway to accommodate people who cannot or do not want to do all the walking, i.e. most likely there will be no “Plan B” except for emergencies.


We would like to receive information from anyone interested in taking part in the 2017 Camino Walk as soon as possible. Please reply to Steen Bjerre at: or Sarah Smith at:
