A clinical-stage biotechnology Company developing next-generation kinase inhibitors for autoimmune disease and cancer announces positive topline data from its Phase 1a clinical trial of SDC-1801, a dual TYK2/JAK1 kinase inhibitor being developed as a potential new therapeutic for a range of autoimmune diseases. The Company reports that blood plasma levels of SDC-1801 significantly in excess of the predicted therapeutic exposure were achieved, with a half-life of between 17 and 20 hours observed, which suggests that once-daily dosing will be possible. No deaths or serious adverse events due to SDC-1801 were reported. Although data remains blinded, there appear to be no significant changes in blood cell counts or increases in serum creatinine levels, which may be dose limiting side-effects of brepocitinib, currently the most advanced TYK2/JAK1 dual inhibitor. The Company expects that further data, unblinded from drug/placebo recipients, including details of any mild or moderate adverse events and biomarkers of TYK2 and/or JAK1 inhibition, will be available in Q3 2024.
