Deudomperidone is an orally active dopamine D2/D3 antagonist in development as the first therapy for the long-term treatment of gastroparesis
Results demonstrate deudomperidone has no clinically meaningful impact on QT intervals
CINCINNATI – May 8, 2023 – CinDome Pharma, a CinRx portfolio company, presented a poster at the 2023 Digestive Disease Week (DDW) Conference titled “Effect of Therapeutic and Supratherapeutic Doses of Deudomperidone (CIN-102) on Cardiac Repolarization in a Thorough QT (TQT) Study in Healthy Subjects.” The poster highlighted data evaluating deudomperidone, a modified formulation of domperidone, for the long-term treatment of gastroparesis.
The study presented at DDW assessed the effect of deudomperidone on electrocardiogram (ECG) parameters, including concentration-QTc (C-QTc) analysis. In this randomized placebo and active-controlled trial of deudomperidone in healthy individuals aged 18-55 years of age, the treatment did not have a clinically meaningful effect on ECG parameters at the therapeutic and supratherapeutic levels. The data demonstrated the potential of deudomperidone to decrease the risk of QT prolongation associated with the traditional formulation of domperidone.
“We’re extremely pleased with the results of this thorough QT study and have already advanced the clinical development of deudomperidone by initiating a phase 2 clinical trial to support patients with diabetic gastroparesis, a population with a large unmet medical need” said Jon Isaacsohn, MD, FACC, Founder and Chief Executive Office at CinRx Pharma.
Deudomperidone is being developed by CinDome as the first line therapy for chronic gastroparesis, which impacts an estimated 16 million people in the US. This novel formulation of domperidone is designed to blunt peak concentration (Cmax) and extend half-life as compared to traditional domperidone. Deudomperidone is intended to provide similar or better therapeutic effects than domperidone with less QT liability. Currently, the only US-approved treatment for gastroparesis is metoclopramide, which is only prescribed for short-term treatment and carries a black box warning.
