Poxel Announces Additional Positive Phase 2a Results, and Phase 2b Plan for PXL770, an Oral First-in-Class AMPK Activator, in NASH

LYON, France--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- POXEL SA (Euronext: POXEL - FR0012432516), a biopharmaceutical company focused on the development of innovative treatments for metabolic disorders, including type 2 diabetes and non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), today announced an update on results from the PXL770 Phase 2a STAMP-NAFLD trial in NASH. The STAMP-NAFLD trial was a 12-week, randomized, parallel group study in 120 presumed NASH patients with or without type 2 diabetes (T2DM). The Company additionally announced new preclinical results and plans for a Phase 2b trial focused on patients with noncirrhotic biopsy-proven NASH and coexisting prediabetes or T2DM. PXL770 is a first-in-class, oral direct adenosine monophosphate-activated protein kinase (AMPK) activator. AMPK is a master regulator of several important metabolic pathways, including lipid metabolism, glucose control and inflammation, and is a novel target for NASH and additional chronic and rare metabolic diseases.
