SynAct Pharma submits application for start of Phase I clinical study

The candidate drug AP1189 is being developed for the treatment of psoriatic arthritis and has shown positive effects in several preclinical disease models. The primary purpose of the Clinical Phase I study is to evaluate the safety and tolerability of AP1189 in healthy subjects, as well as to study its pharmacokinetics, i.e. how it is absorbed and metabolized (broken down) in the body. The timeframe for the implementation of the Phase I study is approximately nine months and the results are expected to be reported during 2017.

CEO Jeppe Øvlesen comments:

– The submission of the application is a very important milestone for SynAct and means that we are another step closer to the implementation of the planned Phase I clinical study.
