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), begins 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.
Licensing opportunities for these drugs are available outside the U.S.
