Intended to address the need for a safe and more effective drug for mild-to-moderate IBD, this drug is aimed at delaying or avoiding the use of expensive, adverse effect-prone immunomodulators, corticosteroids, and biologics.
Currently undergoing screening, the candidate molecules are modeled on the architecture of ATB-429, a hydrogen sulfide-releasing IBD drug molecule with extensive and promising animal data but diminishing patent life.
Comprising treatments for Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, the IBD market is expected to nearly double between 2019 and 2029 from $13 billion to $25 billion.1
In parallel with the development of pipeline drugs and IBD program, we are leveraging our hydrogen sulfide platform through a cost-effective, early-stage research and development program. In 2021, we entered into a strategic collaboration with Dalriada Drug Discovery to accelerate the identification of new drug candidates and to fortify the IP position of our current pipeline drugs, potentially extending their market protection into the 2040s.
