“We are delighted to present new mechanism of action data for our lead compound mosedipimod (EC-18) at the 2021 NASH-TAG Conference,” said Ki Young Sohn, CEO & Chairman of Enzychem Lifesciences. “We look forward to working with Dr. Charlton, as we continue to advance this investigational therapeutic as a new drug.”
“I am excited to present this data for the first time, showing mosedipimod’s unique mechanism of action on the TLR signaling pathway,” said Dr. Michael Charlton, a member of Enzychem’s Scientific Advisory Board and Professor of Medicine and Director, Center for Liver Diseases at University of Chicago School of Medicine. “A well tolerated, orally active agent that mitigates TLR-mediated liver injury and improves the metabolic aspects of NASH has obvious appeal in NASH therapeutic development. The preclinical data highlight attenuation of TLR signaling as the mechanism of action and suggest excellent histological and biomarker efficacy in two well established models of NAFLD and NASH.”
