Karolinska Developments portföljbolag Umecrine Cognition presenterar positiva fas 1b-data för sin läkemedelskandidat mot hepatisk encefalopati

Dela

STOCKHOLM den 13 september 2017. Karolinska Developments portföljbolag Umecrine Cognition presenterar idag positiva fas 1b-data för sin läkemedelskandidat GR3027, vilken utvecklas för behandling av hepatisk encefalopati.

Hepatisk encefalopati (HE) är ett allvarligt tillstånd som bland annat kan uppträda till följd av skrumplever eller gulsot. Umecrine Cognition är såvitt känt det enda företag som har en läkemedelskandidat i utveckling för att minska risken för medvetandestörningar och andra allvarliga CNS-relaterade symtom i samband med HE.

Resultaten av den nu genomförda fas 1b-studien visar att GR3027 tolereras väl, inte ger upphov till några dosbegränsande biverkningar och att den farmakokinetiska profilen är mycket gynnsam. Den placebokontrollerade studien utfördes på 18 friska individer, där de som behandlades med GR3027 erhöll stigande doser från 50 mg en gång per dag till 100 mg två gånger per dag under en period av fem dagar.

"Vi är entusiastiska över de positiva resultaten i fas 1b-studien med GR3027 och ser nu fram emot att Umecrine Cognition tar läkemedelskandidaten vidare in i fas 2a. Resultaten från denna nästkommande studie förväntas kunna presenteras redan under 2018", säger Viktor Drvota, vd, Karolinska Development.

GR3027 har i tidigare försök ("allopregnanolone challenge study") - redan i doser om 3 mg och 30 mg - visat sig kunna penetrera blodhjärnbarriären och påverka de kroppsegna CNS-aktiva GABA-steroider som orsakar symtom vid bland annat hepatisk encefalopati.
