RALEIGH, N.C., Jan. 4, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Executives from Innovate Biopharmaceuticals Inc., which has drug candidates entering Phase 3 and Phase 2 clinical trials, respectively, for the treatments of celiac disease and ulcerative colitis, will be in San Francisco Jan. 8-12, meeting with potential investors and partners gathered for the J.P. Morgan Healthcare Conference.
Interested investors and licensing partners can email the company to schedule one-on-one meetings during the week: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Innovate is a privately held, clinical stage biotechnology company focused on developing novel autoimmune/inflammation medicines. Innovate is also developing therapeutics for unmet needs with global impact and for orphan indications.
The company's lead drug candidate for celiac disease, larazotide acetate (INN-202), will begin Phase 3 clinical trials in 2017. Larazotide, a novel oral peptide, has been studied in more than 800 patients with results that consistently reduced clinical symptoms of celiac disease. Larazotide's unique mechanism of action of reducing antigen trafficking across epithelial cells makes it a promising therapeutic for multiple diseases involving "leaky tight junctions."
Innovate's second therapeutic, INN-108, enters Phase 2 trials in 2017. INN-108 is a small molecule for the treatment of an adult orphan indication and for mild to moderate ulcerative colitis. INN-108 is a prodrug that only becomes activated in the colon. An oral liquid formulation is also in development for pediatric and elderly patients.
Innovate is seeking licensing partners to develop its two drug candidates outside the United States.
