Liminal BioSciences provides an update on currently planned clinical activities for fezagepras

Read time: 1 mins
Published:5th Jun 2021
Liminal BioSciences Inc. announced that based on interim pharmacokinetic (“PK”) results from the ongoing fezagepras multiple ascending dose (MAD) study, the Company has decided to stop its plans to move fezagepras into a Phase II clinical study in Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis and a phase Ia/IIb study in Hypertriglyceridemia, as it evaluates the impact of the PK data profile observed in the on-going study.

The Company is continuing to evaluate the interim PK results. Once the MAD study is complete, the Company expects that a full analysis of the complete PK data set from the phase 1 study will help determine the choice of any other potential indication(s) for further development of fezagepras. No dose-limiting adverse events or other potential safety signals have been observed in the MAD study to date.

Condition: Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis
Type: drug
