VYNE Therapeutics, a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company developing treatment of immuno-inflammatory conditions, announced new preclinical data showing the positive effect of its novel pan-BET inhibitor, VYN201, in a preclinical model of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis or IPF.

“The data from this well-validated preclinical model of IPF clearly demonstrates VYN201’s potential to deliver a potent anti-inflammatory and anti-fibrotic response,” said David Domzalski, President and Chief Executive Officer of VYNE. “These data in IPF support our thesis that VYN201 has potential utility as a locally-administered therapy across a variety of immuno-inflammatory indications and further underscores the potential value of our InhiBETTM BET inhibitor platform.”

IPF is a chronic, life-threatening, fibrosing lung disease with few treatment options. Patients experience debilitating symptoms, including shortness of breath and difficulty performing daily activities.

VYN201 at the 0.5 mg/ml and 1 mg/ml doses demonstrated statistically significant reductions in lung fibrosis and hydroxyproline levels compared to placebo.

Reduction in lung fibrosis from VYN201 treatment resulted in significant improvements in blood oxygen saturation and functional lung volume.
