Study researchers are actively recruiting participants for a global, 12-month Phase 3 study testing lenabasum for dermatomyositis. If you are interested in participating or learning more, visit: https://www.corbuspharma.com/clinical-trials/phase-3-study-in-dermatomyositis. The study is organized by Corbus Pharmaceuticals, a company focused on the development and commercialization of novel therapeutics for inflammatory and fibrotic diseases by harnessing its platform of endocannabinoid system-targeting drug candidates. The company’s lead product candidate, lenabasum, is an oral, selective cannabinoid receptor type 2 agonist designed to reverse chronic inflammation and halt fibrotic processes.
Orphazyme is a late-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on developing novel treatment options for patients with rare, orphan diseases. Our work is focused on the cell-protective properties of the heat-shock response, a natural defense mechanism in all our cells. Orphazyme’s lead compound, arimoclomol, is being developed as a potential treatment for several protein-misfolding diseases, including sporadic inclusion body myositis (sIBM). A phase 2/3 clinical trial investigating the use of arimoclomol for sIBM is ongoing with results expected in the first half of 2021.
