ImmunoMet Therapeutics, Inc., a clinical stage biotechnology company targeting metabolism to develop novel anti-fibrotic and anti-cancer therapies, today announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted Fast Track designation for its lead compound IM156, an investigational Protein Complex 1 (PC1) inhibitor, being evaluated for idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF).

“Fast Track designation is another important milestone for ImmunoMet with the potential to speed our ability to advance IM156 to patients,” commented Benjamin Cowen, Chief Executive Officer of ImmunoMet Therapeutics. “Additionally, we are pleased with the progress we are making in the ongoing U.S. Phase 1 study in healthy volunteers.”

About Fast Track Designation
Fast Track designation is intended to facilitate the development and review of drugs used to treat serious conditions and to fill an unmet medical need. Fast Track designation enables the company to have more frequent interactions with the FDA throughout the drug development process, so that an approved product can reach the market expeditiously.

About IM156
IM156 is a Protein Complex 1 (PC1) inhibitor that targets the oxidative phosphorylation (OXPHOS) pathway, decreasing the supply of energy and anabolic precursors that are required to drive fibrotic disease and tumor growth. IM156, ImmunoMet’s lead drug candidate, is solely owned by ImmunoMet and is currently in development for the treatment of IPF and selected cancers.
