Inhibikase Therapeutics Receives FDA Clearance for Phase II Trial of IkT-001 to Treat JC Virus Infection, the Cause of Progressive Multifocal Leukoencephalopathy (PML) in Multiple Sclerosis Patients
Date:8/16/2011

President of Inhibikase Therapeutics.  "If IkT-001 proves to be efficacious at suppressing JCV in MS patients on TYSABRI®, then a much broader population of patients at potential risk of contracting PML could benefit from this approach to preempting the virus from reaching the brain and causing the disease.  The common mechanism of action utilized by IkT-001 enables treatment for bacterial and viral infectious disease, thus an efficacious outcome for this Phase II study could clear a path for multiple indications using the same pharmaceutical approach."

About JC Virus and Progressive Multifocal Leukoencephalopathy (PML)

The John Cunningham virus (JCV) is a type of human polyomavirus. It was isolated in 1971 from a patient with progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy (PML). Human polyomaviruses, like JC and BK, cause PML and other diseases only in the context of immunodeficiency, as in AIDS, or drug-related immune suppression, either for treatment of autoimmune disease, cancer or for solid organ transplant maintenance. JCV infection is very common in the general population, with roughly 60 percent of adult humans likely to have been exposed to the virus; most people acquire JCV in childhood or adolescence.(1)  When immunodeficiency or immunosuppression allows JCV to 'reactivate', the virus preferentially migrates to the brain, destroying oligodendrocytes and astrocytes. This lytic infection leads to cognitive and motor dysfunction (the syndrome PML) and is fatal in 50 percent or more of patients.   The best approach to treating the disease is to attack the virus in its quiescent state before it enters the brain. IkT-001 blocks viral entry into host cells, and therefore could suppress an active JCV infection in at risk patients prior to virus migration into the brain.  There is no currently approved treatment for PML.
