N30 Pharma Initiates Human Studies With N30-201
N30 Pharma has successfully completed Phase 1 study of N30-201 in healthy volunteers. N30 intends to develop N30-201 for the treatment of reactive and obstructive airway diseases, including Cystic Fibrosis and asthma.
"We are pleased to have begun and completed the first set of human studies of N30-201. We believe that N30-201 could be an important therapy for the treatment of many respiratory diseases. Determining the safety of acute administration of N30-201 to human subjects is the first step," commented Charles Scoggin, M.D., Chairman of N30 Pharma.
The primary endpoint of the study was patient safety and characterization of adverse events, but the company collected pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic data of ascending doses of N30-201.
N30-201 is a proprietary nebulized formulation of s-nitrosoglutathione (GSNO), an endogenous bronchodilatory molecule that serves as a crucial store of nitric oxide (NO) bioactivity in the human airway.
