First Quarter 2021 Highlights of Recent Activity

On May 17thIKT reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2021 and highlighted recent developments.

  • Accelerated timelines for Phase 1 Study of IkT-148009 for the treatment of PD and associated GI Disorders: In February 2021 IKT commenced patient dosing in its Phase 1 study evaluating the safety, tolerability and pharmacokinetics of IkT-148009, the Company’s novel brain penetrant Abelson tyrosine kinase (c-Abl) inhibitor with the potential to modify Parkinson’s disease and its gastrointestinal complications. In April 2021, IKT announced that it had accelerated the timeline for completion of the study based on early data that provided the opportunity to seek regulatory approval to commence dosing of PD patients in the third quarter of 2021, much earlier than previously anticipated.

  • Advancing chronic toxicology studies of IkT-148009 to permit long-term dosing in patients: In January 2021 IKT initiated 3- and 6-month long-term toxicology studies of IkT-148009 in mice and 3- and 9-month long-term toxicology studies of IkT-148009 in primates as required to obtain regulatory approval for chronic administration of IkT-148009 in patients. IKT has completed 3-month toxicology studies and is presently completing its histopathology analysis in preparation for submission of the data for regulatory review early in the third quarter of 2021. IKT expects to complete 6- and 9-month toxicology studies in the fourth quarter of 2021.

  • Initiated clinical batch manufacturing and pill formulation of IkT-001Pro. In February, 2021, IKT initiated clinical batch manufacturing and final product formulation of IkT-001Pro, the IKT prodrug formulation of Imatinib, designed as a potentially safer, better tolerated treatment for Imatinib-sensitive cancers such as stable-phase Chronic Myeloid Leukemia (CML). IKT expects to file an Investigational New Drug (IND) application in the third quarter of 2021, with initiation of clinical development as soon as practicable after the filing, subject to FDA acceptance of the IND.

The acceleration of the Phase 1 study for its lead candidate, IkT-148009 should allow
IKT to move into evaluation of the safety, tolerability and pharmacokinetics in Parkinson’s patients early in the third quarter of 2021. Concurrently, IKT is advancing two long term toxicology studies in animals, which will allow for chronic administration of IKT-148009 in patients following FDA review and acceptance. 

In the third quarter of 2021, IKT plans to file its IND application for IKT-001Pro, which holds the potential to be a safer and better tolerated treatment for cancers such as CML and expects to initiate clinical development as soon as practicable following the submission of the IND application.
