Excerpt from the Press Release:


CAMBRIDGE, Mass., July 13, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Artax Biopharma, Inc., a biotechnology company focused on transforming the treatment of T Cell-mediated diseases, today announced that the United Kingdom’s Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) has granted clinical trial authorization to evaluate AX-158 in a Phase 1 clinical trial for the treatment of T Cell-Mediated Diseases.

The MHRA authorization marks the start of Artax’s clinical trial program for its global platform of T Cell-mediated diseases. The AX-158 Phase 1 clinical trial is expected to start in the second half of this year.

Artax’s lead compound AX-158 is a first-in-class, oral small molecule immunomodulating agent for the treatment of T Cell-mediated diseases. AX-158 employs a novel mechanism of action that selectively modulates, or adjusts, T cell responses that play a critical role in immune system function. In preclinical studies, AX-158 decreased key cytokines including INFγ, TNFα and IL-2. Based on this activity, Artax is planning future clinical development in autoimmune diseases, T cell malignancies and other related T cell pathologies.
