Truveta’s 28 health system members provide over 16% of patient care in the United States.
BELLEVUE and SEATTLE, Wash. – March 21, 2023 – Today, Truveta and Alpine Immune Sciences, Inc. (NASDAQ: ALPN) announced a strategic partnership to help accelerate clinical trial recruitment for povetacicept, Alpine’s dual B cell cytokine antagonist being developed for multiple B cell-mediated autoimmune and inflammatory diseases. With this partnership, Alpine and Truveta will work to rapidly identify and recruit participants for Alpine’s RUBY clinical trial program for povetacicept, including the RUBY-3 study in autoimmune glomerulonephritis and RUBY-4 study in autoimmune cytopenias.
Offering the most timely, complete, and cleanest data on US health, Truveta provides unparalleled breadth and depth, including medical records with full diagnoses, vital signs, lab tests, clinical notes, and images. Truveta is updated daily from its 28 health system members, who provide over 16% of patient care in the United States in more than 20,000 clinics and 700 hospitals from all 50 states. With Truveta and Truveta’s health system members, Alpine will find trial eligible participants as early as possible – and then work together to rapidly recruit them.
“Clinical trials today lack the real-time patient data to optimize recruitment in an increasingly difficult clinical trial environment,” said Terry Myerson, CEO, Truveta. “We are excited to work with an innovative leader in immunology like Alpine to build a new approach that can help speed clinical trial recruitment for povetacicept. By building new collaborations between health systems and biotechnology companies like Alpine within the Truveta Community, we can help transform the speed and precision needed to advance clinical trials and deliver cutting-edge therapies faster.”
“We are excited to collaborate with Truveta and its health system members to accelerate development of povetacicept across multiple indications,” said Mitchell H. Gold, MD, Executive Chairman and CEO, Alpine. “In an environment of increasingly competitive and challenging clinical trials, Truveta will enable Alpine to more quickly identify and recruit study participants who have the potential to benefit most from povetacicept and its unique mechanism of action.”
“One of the most beneficial things we can do with data is connect patients to clinical trials that offer them new potential treatments and new hope. This new partnership will allow us to accomplish just that,” said Ari Robicsek, MD, chief medical informatics officer at Providence, a member of Truveta.

Povetacicept (ALPN-303) is a dual antagonist of the BAFF (B cell activating factor) and APRIL (a proliferation inducing ligand) cytokines, which play key roles in the activation and survival of B cells, particularly antibody-secreting cells. Based upon an engineered TACI (transmembrane activator and CAML interactor) domain, povetacicept exhibits greater potency in preclinical studies versus multiple comparators, including wild-type TACI-Ig’s, inhibitors of BAFF and/or APRIL alone, and B cell depletion strategies. A randomized, placebo-controlled phase 1 study in adult healthy volunteers has shown povetacicept to be well tolerated with encouraging dose-related pharmacokinetic and on-target pharmacodynamic effects, supporting the use of a once every four-week dose regimen for subsequent studies. Povetacicept is currently in development for multiple B cell and/or autoantibody-related diseases, such as systemic lupus erythematosus, autoimmune glomerulonephritis, and autoimmune cytopenias.
