Initial iQ-007 IND-Enabling Tox Results Accelerate Prep for First in Human Phase 1 Study

Princeton, NJ, March 19, 2024 ─ iQure Pharma Inc. (iQure), a US-based global biotech, announced that its asset, iQ-007, a novel anticonvulsant compound, has completed the first stage of pivotal IND-enabling Tox studies in rodent and non-rodent species.

“The recent results confirm what we already know about this exciting compound,” said Pawel Zolnierczyk, CEO. “We’re one step closer to bringing this effective therapeutic to a clinic trial, with the potential to significantly improve patients’ quality of life. Results of recent toxicological studies show that iQ-007 unique mechanism of action as a Positive Allosteric Modulator (PAM) of the EAAT2 neurotransporter, is a very promising therapeutic strategy, ‘triggering a human natural safety mechanism’ that allows for more efficient clearance of excess glutamate which in turn prevents neurotoxicity and seizures.”

iQ-007 is well tolerated and continues to demonstrate an impressive safety profile. iQure Pharma is looking forward to completing the IND-enabling tox study series, which will accelerate the preparation of the First in Human Phase 1 study.
