Kennedy Krieger Institute and Viking Therapeutics, Inc. Sign Research Collaboration Agreement

Kennedy Krieger Institute and Viking Therapeutics, Inc. announced research collaboration focused on evaluating the company's novel thyroid beta agonists for the treatment of X-linked adrenoleukodystrophy (X-ALD). Under terms of the agreement, Kennedy Krieger's X-ALD research scientists will study Viking's proprietary thyroid beta agonists, including VK0214, in vivo models of X-ALD. This research will build upon previous cell-based data demonstrating that the company's thyroid beta agonists positively affect the expression of specific genes relevant to X-ALD. In the planned work, researchers at the Kennedy Krieger will utilize an in vivo X-ALD model to assess the impact of VK0214 on key biomarkers of the disease. The successful completion of this work will support Viking's initiation of IND-enabling activities with the goal of advancing VK0214 into clinical studies.
