BASEL, Switzerland-Wednesday 22 September 2021 [ AETOS Wire ]

First study of RP7214, a DHODH inhibitor, in Covid-19 patients with mild, symptomatic disease on the background of promising preclinical efficacy & Phase 1 healthy volunteer safety

Randomized, placebo-controlled Phase 2 study is designed to evaluate the effect of RP7214 on viral load & clearance, disease biomarkers and clinical improvement in patients’ status along with the tolerability and immunomodulatory activity of RP7214.

RP7214 is expected to function by inhibiting the DHODH enzyme on host cells and limit their ability to support viral replication. This unique mechanism of action, if successful in the clinic, is expected to be complementary to other antiviral drugs that directly inhibit the virus.

Future plans may include testing RP7214 in partially/fully vaccinated patients with breakthrough covid-19 infections as part of a broader clinical development program. As infec ... Read more »
