Lansdale, PA (PRWEB) April 15, 2011
JDP Therapeutics Inc., a specialty pharmaceutical company, announced today that the first group of 12 human volunteers have been dosed JDP-205 Investigational New Drug in a phase I clinical trial without any significant adverse events. This clinical trial is a single dose, randomized, 4-way crossover study in healthy normal volunteers. It is designed to evaluate the safety, tolerability, and pharmacokinetic properties of the company's lead product, JDP-205. The Company plans to enroll 24 volunteers for the trial. “This is the first time that JDP-205 injection is being administered in a human trial, a major milestone for the Company. We are excited in advancing the development program of JDP-205,” commented Jie Du, Ph.D. President of JDP Therapeutics.
JDP’s first program, JDP-205 is a proprietary product being developed for the treatment of allergic reactions for the hospital market. A survey of 110 physicians revealed that 86% of responding doctors had indicated readiness to use JDP-205 when it is approved by the FDA. A second independent study with in-depth clinician interviews confirmed the findings.
Allergic reaction is a serious condition, potentially life-threatening, and has been growing at concerning rates but with very limited selections of medications. JDP-205 will offer an alternative treatment to the current therapy for the first time in over 55 years.
JDP Therapeutics Inc, founded in 2008, is a clinical stage specialty pharmaceutical company focused on developing small molecule therapeutics to treat life threatening diseases with significant unmet medical needs, primarily for acute care use in the hospital setting.
