JanOne's first drug candidate, JAN101, is a patented sodium nitrite sustained release tablet formulated to treat PAD and other vascular conditions. JAN101 (formerly referred to as TV1001SR) has demonstrated positive results in Phase 1 and Phase 2a trials for improving blood flow and vascular function. The company has received authorization from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the investigational new drug (IND) sponsorship transfer covering its sodium nitrite tablets and is currently preparing an investigator-initiated IND package for FDA submission, which it expects to submit in the coming weeks, as a potential treatment for certain aspects of bodily damage created by COVID-19. A pivotal phase 2b study for PAD is planned for early 2021.
JAN101 is intended to address the 8.5 million Americans who suffer from PAD. In 2017, the global market for PAD was estimated at nearly $36.1 billion and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.6% to $52.0 billion by 2022, according to BCC Research.1
