Larimar Therapeutics Announces Dosing of Patients in Third Cohort of Phase 1 SAD Trial of CTI-1601 for Treatment of Friedreich’s Ataxia

BALA CYNWYD, Pa., July 20, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Larimar Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq:LRMR), a clinical-stage biotechnology company focused on developing treatments for complex rare diseases, today announced that patients have been dosed in the third cohort of a Phase 1 clinical trial to evaluate the safety and tolerability of single ascending doses (SAD) of CTI-1601 for the treatment of Friedreich’s ataxia (FA). The trial was previously delayed due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. CTI-1601 is a recombinant fusion protein intended to deliver human frataxin into the mitochondria of patients with FA who are unable to produce enough of this essential protein.

The double-blind, placebo-controlled trial is evaluating the safety, tolerability and pharmacokinetics of single ascending doses of subcutaneously administered CTI-1601 in patients over age 18 with FA. To date, two cohorts of patients have completed the Phase 1 clinical trial. Topline results are planned for the first half of 2021.

Additional information on the trial can be found at www.clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT04176991
