Polyphor Ltd Key Developments

Polyphor and Taisho Pharmaceutical Enter into Research Collaboration on Novel Drug Candidates

Polyphor Ltd. announced the signing of a research collaboration agreement with Taisho Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. The parties will collaborate on the identification of novel drug candidates based on Polyphor's proprietary macrocycle platform.

Polyphor Ltd. Extends Clinical Development Portfolio by Advancing its inhaled Elastase Inhibitor POL6014 for Lung Diseases to Phase I

Polyphor Ltd. announced the initiation of recruitment in a first in man clinical Phase I study with inhaled POL6014, Polyphor's proprietary macrocycle drug candidate. POL6014 is a highly selective, potent and reversible inhibitor of human neutrophil elastase (hNE), which is implicated in a number of severe respiratory diseases that frequently lead to life-threatening progressive lung deterioration as, for instance, in the orphan lung diseases Alpha-1 Antitrypsin (AAT) Deficiency and Cystic Fibrosis (CF). Inhibition of excess hNE may stop or slow lung destruction and the progressive deterioration of lung function, characteristic of many obstructive lung diseases, resulting from the proteolytic (breakdown of proteins) activity of hNE in the lung. In addition, it may also help improve lung function, exacerbation profiles and overall quality of life of patients by reducing the pro-inflammatory effect of hNE in the lung. The randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled dose-escalation Phase I study is designed to investigate safety, tolerability and pharmacokinetics of inhaled single doses of POL6014 in healthy volunteers. The study aims to establish a safe maximum tolerated dose for future clinical studies.
