The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has accepted Rise Therapeutics’ investigational new drug (IND) application enabling initiation of a Phase I clinical trial of R-2487 to treat rheumatoid arthritis.

The single and repeat dose study will evaluate the drug exposure, tolerability, safety, and clinical activity of the cellular immunotherapy R-2487.

It intends to enrol nearly 36 subjects and the clinical activity of R-2487 will be assessed by measuring improvement in rheumatoid arthritis disease severity, and various key biomarker and pharmacodynamic assessments.

Rise Therapeutics president and CEO Gary Fanger said: “We are extremely excited to initiate our second clinical-stage programme at Rise Therapeutics with the evolution of R-2487.

“As we grow our clinical development infrastructure, our plan is to clinically validate a series of life-saving medications based upon our synthetic biology platform technology to evolve oral immunotherapy approaches that both improve the ease of delivery of protein-based biologics therapy and reduce the cost of these important immune regulatory-based medicines.

“We believe R-2487 has the potential to broadly treat autoimmune diseases.”
