Second Genome Presents New Data at Digestive Disease Week (DDW) 2022 Demonstrating that SG-5-00455, a Potential First-in-Class Precision Therapeutic, Improves Epithelial Barrier Function and Promotes Mucosal Healing in Inflammatory Bowel Disease
Excerpt from the Press Release:
Lead development candidate SG-5-00455 shows potential to become first in class PAI-1/2 inhibitor that directly targets mucosal healing in patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD)
BRISBANE, Calif., May 24, 2022 – Second Genome, a biotechnology company that leverages its proprietary platform to discover and develop precision therapies and biomarkers, presented data demonstrating the Company’s development candidate, SG-5-00455, improves epithelial barrier function and promotes mucosal healing by effectively inhibiting plasminogen activator inhibitor (PAI)-1/2 activity in the intestines. The data were presented at Digestive Disease Week 2022 Annual Meeting, held May 21-24 virtually and in San Diego, California.
There is a strong correlation between the upregulation of SERPINE1 (PAI-1) and chronic inflammation in IBD. Local delivery of SG-5-00455 to the gastrointestinal mucosa of diseased mice demonstrated efficacy by inhibiting PAI-1 activity, which in excessive amounts adversely impacts wound healing, immune cell modulation and tissue remodeling. By selectively targeting the PAI-1 pathway at the mucosa, SG-5-00455 improves epithelial barrier function by regulating extracellular matrix production and reducing profibrotic inflammation. SG-5-00455 demonstrates the potential to directly target mucosal healing, a key therapeutic goal in the treatment of IBD,” said Joseph Dal Proto, Ph.D. “SG-5-00455 has the potential to become a first-in-class treatment for patients with IBD in which mucosal healing is inadequately addressed by current standards of care.”
This data was presented during a poster session at DDW 2022. The information is provided below:
