Recent Developments at the University of Iowa have Resulted in an Improved Formulation of JAN101
LAS VEGAS, June 28, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- JanOne Inc. ("JanOne") (Nasdaq: JAN), a company that focuses on the development of drugs with non-addictive, pain-relieving properties, announced today that work has been completed by Dr. Maureen Donovan at the University of Iowa that will allow for an improved formulation of JAN101. JAN101 (formerly known as TV1001SR), is a potential treatment for peripheral artery disease (PAD), a vascular disease that affects more than 8.5 million people in the U.S. and more than 60 million people worldwide. While JAN101 has been used successfully in clinical trials to reduce pain and improve nerve function, JanOne has continued to work on optimizing the formulation. Together with its Formulation Advisor, Dr. Douglas Flanagan, JanOne has developed new formulations that should further improve the properties of JAN101.
"We believe JAN101 will be a very effective therapy for treating a variety of microvascular diseases, including diabetic pain, peripheral arterial disease and cardiovascular diseases," said Dr. Tony Giordano, JanOne's Chief Scientific Officer. "To provide the best therapy possible, we continue to work on improving the formulation of the product."
Dr. Douglas Flanagen, a leader in the field of drug formulation commented, "We explored the composition of the current sustained release formulation and identified some of the excipients that could be replaced to improve the properties of the drug. Dr. Donovan was able to make and test a large number of these changes in the formulation and we are very pleased with the results".
"I am pleased to be able to help in testing the excipients for JAN101 and hope that the resulting new formulation will play an important role in treating patients with microvascular disease, for which no treatments currently exist", added Dr. Donovan, a Professor of Pharmacy at the University of Iowa.
This new formulation will be used by CoreRx, JanOne's GMP manufacturer, to manufacture clinical supply and validate the JAN101 manufacturing process for the Company's upcoming pivotal clinical trial. JanOne expects to begin the manufacturing and validation process in the near future.
