About AP1189

The mechanism of action of SynAct Pharma’s lead compound AP1189 is to promote resolution of inflammation through melanocortin receptor activation directly on macrophages, thereby reducing the pro-inflammatory activity of macrophages and by stimulating so-called macrophage efferocytosis, a specific ability to clear inflammatory cells (J Immun 2015, 194:3381-3388). This effect has shown to be effective in disease models of inflammatory and autoimmune diseases and the clinical potential of the approach is currently tested in a clinical phase 2 study in patient with active rheumatoid Arthritis, in nephrotic syndrome and COVID-19 inflammation ARDS. https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT04004429?term=AP1189&draw=2&rank=1)
