About Innovate Biopharmaceuticals Inc.
Innovate is a privately held, clinical stage biotechnology company focused on developing novel autoimmune/inflammation medicines.
Innovate's lead drug candidate, Larazotide acetate (INN-202), is a novel oral peptide that has consistently reduced clinical symptoms of celiac disease in multiple clinical trials testing more than 800 patients. Larazotide has completed a large phase 2b study and will start Phase 3 trials in 2017. 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 in clinical development, INN-108, is an oral small molecule entering Phase 2 trials for the treatment of adult orphan ulcerative colitis as well as mild to moderate ulcerative colitis. INN-108 is a prodrug that only becomes activated in the colon. The convenience of a liquid formulation will be important to children and the aging.
