Torbjørn Bjerke comments on the additional data from the Expand clinical trial – September 13, 2023

CEO Torbjørn Bjerke at Börsveckan’s Seminar (Swedish) – September 6, 2023

Resolving Inflammation Without Immunosuppression

Most available treatments used to treat inflammation suppress the immune system which can lead to a heightened risk of serious safety issues. Inflammation resolution strategies seek to provide both anti-inflammatory and pro-resolving activity without suppressing the immune system.

Harnessing the Melanocortin System to Resolve Inflammation

SynAct harnesses the melanocortin system to stimulate both anti-inflammatory and inflammation resolution mechanisms to resolve excessive inflammation safely without suppressing the immune system’s ability to respond to new infections or injuries.

Resomelagon (AP1189)

An Oral Selective Melanocortin Agonist

Our lead drug candidate resomelagon (AP1189) is a once-daily oral selective melanocortin agonist that selectively stimulates melanocortin receptors to help the body resolve inflammation. Resomelagon (AP1189) is being evaluated in rheumatoid arthritis (RA), idiopathic membranous nephropathy (iMN) and respiratory insufficiency caused by viruses like COVID-19.


“We are truly at an exciting inflection point for SynAct. I am excited to continue to work with the talented management team we have at SynAct, and we are all eagerly awaiting the upcoming clinical trial results that will build off the strong data demonstrated in the BEGIN study. I want to express our sincere appreciation to our shareholder base for supporting our shared vision of resomelagon and the promise of resolution therapy. Our combined resolve remains strong.”
