Inhibikase Therapeutics to present at Industry Conference on Drug-Induced Progressive Multifocal Leukoencephalopathy (PML)

ATLANTA, May 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Inhibikase Therapeutics, Inc., an emerging leader in infectious disease treatments, announced today that it will present new results on its antiviral program to 'prevent' PML at an industry conference sponsored by the PML Consortium (composed of Pfizer, Bristol-Meyers Squibb, Roche and Biogen Idec).  JC polyomavirus (JCV) is the causative agent of Progressive Multifocal Leukoencephalopathy (PML). IkT-001Pro, a host-directed tyrosine kinase inhibitor in an extended release formulation, can clear JC polyomavirus (JCV) infection in at least some patients and is active against the form of the virus that infects the majority of human beings. The Company will present preliminary outcomes of its proposed treatment to 'prevent' PML.  This oral medication, taken once or twice daily, is compatible with many different monoclonal antibody-based therapies and may offer a general solution to JCV infection as a companion therapeutic.

"JCV infection progresses to PML only in patients with chronic or drug-induced immune suppression. The ability to clear JCV infection in at least some patients is encouraging.  Further clinical evaluation confirming preliminary results is underway in several patient groups," said Milton H. Werner Ph.D., Chief Executive Officer and President of Inhibikase Therapeutics.
