European Medicines Agency (EMA) Greenlights Mitochon Pharmaceuticals to Initiate Phase I/IIa Biomarker Study in Neurodegenerative Diseases

BLUE BELL, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mitochon Pharmaceuticals today announced that it was awarded approval from EMA to begin enrollment for a Phase I/IIa biomarker study in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Huntington’s Disease (HD) and Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) participants. Mitochon’s MP101, a once-daily, oral brain penetrant mitochondrial stimulator, that improves central nervous system survival and function will be used in this 14-day pilot study. The aim of the study is to show safety in the target patient populations and demonstrate meaningful changes in disease specific biomarkers. Successful completion of this study will provide the basis for long term Phase IIb clinical studies in ALS, Secondary & Primary Progressive MS, HD, and AD patients, leading to the first mitochondrial specific therapy for these truly insidious diseases.
