Ohr Pharmaceutical and Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Announce Joint Venture to Develop Trodusquemine and Related Analogs

Ohr Pharmaceutical, Inc. announced the establishment of DepYmed Inc., a new joint venture to develop trodusquemine and related analogs. The new joint venture will be a private entity, initially with equal ownership by Ohr and Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory. The two partners will seek funding and contribute to the research and development of trodusquemine and also newly patented analogs. The goal is to take the program into the clinic and to demonstrate proof of concept. Various options to fund later stage clinical trials will be explored. The continued preclinical research will be conducted under the guidance of Dr. Nicholas Tonks at CSHL. The enzyme protein tyrosine phosphatase 1B (PTB1B) is a well-characterized target for a range of therapy areas. Despite its extensive validation, PTP1B has been a challenging target for therapeutic development due to the chemical properties of the enzyme at its active site. Novel approaches are required to exploit this important target fully. In one such approach, have identified Trodusquemine as a selective, allosteric inhibitor of PTP1B that exerts its effects outside the active site of the enzyme. Trodusquemine has also been shown to cross the blood brain barrier, which enhances its potential applications, and has been well tolerated in dose escalation and dose ranging clinical studies completed to date in over 65 patients. Analogs of Trodusquemine have been identified that are potent inhibitors of PTP1B and have potential delivery route advantages.
