IRLAB Unveils Exciting New Drug Candidate IRL1117 from P003 Project to Combat Parkinson’s Disease!

IRLAB Therapeutics AB (Nasdaq Stockholm: IRLAB A), a Gothenburg-based company developing pioneering treatments for Parkinson’s disease, has nominated a drug candidate from its P003 research project: IRL1117. This once-daily oral treatment promises to improve the hallmark symptoms of Parkinson’s without the risk of the troublesome side-effects associated with current anti-Parkinson’s medications. Development towards clinical studies is already underway and IRL1117 is anticipated to begin Phase I studies in 2024. This groundbreaking innovation is set to revolutionize the treatment of Parkinson’s and offer new hope to patients worldwide.

At IRLAB, we are incredibly excited about IRL1117, a powerful and orally available dopamine D1 and D2 receptor agonist. Unlike today’s Parkinson’s treatments, IRL1117 has demonstrated a rapid onset and more than 10 hours of sustained efficacy in preclinical studies. We believe IRL1117 has the potential to revolutionize the treatment of Parkinson’s and its follow-on compounds are already in the early stages of preclinical development. We are eager to learn more about the safety and efficacy of IRL1117 as it progresses toward clinical trials.

For those living with Parkinson’s disease, levodopa has been the go-to treatment for managing the hallmark symptoms of tremor, rigidity, and slowness of movement since the 1960s. Unfortunately, levodopa has its drawbacks, such as a short duration of action and the risk of developing excessive involuntary movements. Now, IRL1117 offers a new option for those with Parkinson’s, providing a powerful, long-lasting anti-parkinsonian effect with no risk of the pesky side effects.

The P003 project is an incredible development for those living with Parkinson’s disease. IRLAB’s drug candidate from the project, IRL1117, has the potential to revolutionize the treatment of Parkinson’s hallmark symptoms. Through successful clinical development, IRL1117 could be a major breakthrough in the field of Parkinson’s treatment. We are extremely excited about the potential of IRL1117, and will provide updates on its progress as its clinical development advances.
