Imara Reports Favorable Preclinical and Phase 1 Data on IMR-687 in Sickle Cell Disease

Imara Inc. today announced it will report additional preclinical and Phase 1 clinical data from the company’s lead compound, IMR-687, a once-daily, oral therapy designed to address the underlying pathology of sickle cell disease (SCD). In preclinical studies, IMR-687’s mechanism of action was shown to positively impact both red and white blood cell pathologies associated with the disease. The company has previously reported the ability of IMR-687 to induce fetal hemoglobin (HbF) in murine and human cells at ASH in 2017. Importantly, the data from a recent Phase 1 clinical trial in healthy volunteers demonstrated IMR-687 to be safe and well-tolerated at the target dose that exceeded the effective doses in cell and animal models of SCD, thereby clearing a path to a Phase 2 study in adult patients with SCD. The new data will be presented at the 6th Annual Sickle Cell Therapeutics Conference in New York.
