On May 9th of 2019, InnoCare announced the approval of their proprietary BTK inhibitor ICP-022 by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for initiation of clinical investigations. ICP-022 is the first innovative drug candidate from InnoCare to initiate clinical trials in the US.
ICP-022 is a highly selective BTK inhibitor targeting both oncology and autoimmune indications. Currently multi-center, multi-indication phase I/II studies are underway in China, with encouraging preliminary results on safety and efficacy. Following the IND approval, InnoCare will soon conduct the clinical trials in the US for ICP-022. InnoCare will also actively seek collaborations with innovative biotech and pharmaceutical companies in related areas.
“This is a major milestone for us. We are fully committed to the global development of ICP-022 and looking forward to the expansion of ICP-022 into global markets.” said Dr. Cui Jisong, co-founder, Chairman, and CEO of InnoCare.
