Nuformix Commences NXP001 Clinical Trial

 

First patient dosed with Nuformix cocrystal product

 

Cambridge, UK, 22 March 2019: Nuformix (LSE: NFX), the pharmaceutical development company using cocrystal technology to unlock the therapeutic potential of approved small molecule drugs, announces it has commenced clinical studies for the Company's lead asset NXP001.

 

NXP001 is in development as a treatment for chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting ("CINV"), a large, under-exploited and growing market, which in demographic terms comprises one third of global cancer patients.

 

First dosing of NXP001 took place successfully on 20 March 2019 in a cross-over study that aims to measure the relative bioavailability of NXP001 compared to Merck's EMEND® in healthy subjects. Dosing will complete during April 2019 with results expected by end H1 2019.

 

The data gathered from the trial will enable the Company to:

 

  • Confirm NXP001's suitability for rapid development as a treatment for CINV, allowing current and future licensees to launch new products into the £16bn oncology supportive care market
  • Trigger a final milestone payment of £2m from its Chinese licensing partner, Newsummit Biopharma, and proceed with product registration process in China (Nuformix retains 10% royalty)
  • Progress on-going discussions for licensing rest of world rights to NXP001 for CINV
  • Substantiate further product development opportunities for the NXP001 programme to generate significant additional future value
  • Validate its underlying strategy, technology and IP by rapidly generating clinical data in a cost-effective manner to support out-licensing activities and generate revenue

 

Dr Dan Gooding, CEO, Nuformix plc, said: "The initiation of clinical studies for NXP001 marks a critical milestone for Nuformix, not just as a measure of the progress the Company has made, but also due to the associated technical and commercial significance. The results from the study will trigger payment of the final £2m milestone from Newsummit Biopharma and advance product registration in China.

 

"From on-going discussions with additional licensing partners, we believe that NXP001 can address key issues that currently restrict patient access to highly efficacious treatment for their CINV. Data confirming Nuformix's patented approach as a solution to CINV applications is the final piece in the validation of our technology, increasing Nuformix's ability to conclude further commercial partnerships globally."
