Antibe Therapeutics Announces Additional Validation Data on ATB-346
TORONTO-- Antibe Therapeutics Inc. (“Antibe” or the “Company”) (ATE.V) announced today the results of additional testing of the in vivo activity of its lead anti-inflammatory drug, ATB-346.
The results support the Company's earlier communication that ATB-346 may be effective at much lower doses than previously expected, and that once daily dosing may be effective. Together, over 600 blood samples from its Phase 1 human clinical trial were independently analysed to assess the ability of ATB-346, at doses ranging from 25 to 1000 mg, to inhibit the enzyme "cyclooxygenase" (COX). The reduction of pain and inflammation by non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) is attributed to their ability to inhibit COX activity.
Substantial inhibition of COX was observed at doses of ATB-346 as low as 75 mg, and the inhibition was maintained for 24 hours.
The Company continues to conduct validation studies, and will report to the market as they proceed.
