Inhibikase Therapeutics, Inc., a clinical-stage pharmaceutical company developing protein kinase inhibitor therapeutics to modify the course of Parkinson’s disease, Parkinson’s-related disorders and other diseases of the Abelson Tyrosine Kinases, today announced that Milton Werner, Ph.D., President and Chief Executive Officer of Inhibikase, will present at the Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Inaugural Neurodegeneration Targets: Drug Discovery for Brain and Nerve-Related Progressive Disorders Conference. The event is being held in Boston, Massachusetts and virtually between October 19-20, 2022.
The presentation will detail the outcomes from multiple pre-clinical animal model studies of IkT-148009 as a potential disease modifying therapy for inherited and idiopathic Parkinson’s disease, including results indicating multi-organ repair using once daily oral therapy. The presentation will also highlight findings from the preclinical and Phase 1/1b studies that have informed the design of the ongoing Phase 2a ‘201’ clinical trial.
Inhibikase Therapeutics, Inc. is a clinical-stage pharmaceutical company developing therapeutics for Parkinson’s disease and related disorders. Inhibikase’s multi-therapeutic pipeline has a primary focus on neurodegeneration and its lead program IkT-148009, an Abelson Tyrosine Kinase (c-Abl) inhibitor, targets the treatment of Parkinson’s disease inside and outside the brain as well as other diseases that arise from Ableson Tyrosine Kinases. Its multi-therapeutic pipeline is pursuing Parkinson’s-related disorders of the brain and GI tract, orphan indications related to Parkinson’s disease such as Multiple System Atrophy, and drug delivery technologies for kinase inhibitors such as IkT-001Pro, a prodrug of the anticancer agent imatinib mesylate that the Company believes will provide a better patient experience with fewer on-dosing side-effects. The Company’s RAMP™ medicinal chemistry program has identified a number of follow-on compounds to IkT-148009 to be potentially applied to other cognitive and motor function diseases of the brain. Inhibikase is headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia with offices in Boston, Massachusetts.
