TRIA-662 (1-methylnicotinamide chloride, 1-MNA chloride) is a naturally occurring, major metabolite of nicotinic acid and a nicotinamide, two main forms of the B3 vitamin (niacin).
1-methylnicotinamide is produced endogenously by the metabolism of dietary nicotinamide. It is formed mainly in the liver by nicotinamide N-methyltransferase (NNMT).
Established a dominant IP position for both systemic and topical uses of 1-methylnicotinamide and owns the US IND and Canadian CTA regulatory filings.
Cortia is developing TRIA-662 for cardio-metabolic indications.
TRIA-662 has been investigated in phase I and in 14-week Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled, Forced Dose-Escalation, Multi-Center Study.
The well-tolerance and safety profile of TRIA-662 were confirmed in this study. In addition, TRIA-662 did not evoke the characteristic nicotinic acid adverse events of erythema and hot flush.
TRIA 662 is an interesting anti-inflammatory and metabolic modifying drug candidate. Pre-clinical and clinical studies demonstrate that TRIA-662:
• reduces inflammatory markers, hsCRP and TNF-alpha,
• stimulates production of prostacyclin (PGI2),
• improves vascular endothelial function,
• increases lipoprotein lipase activity,
• increases adiponectin level,
• reduces trigliceride (TG) blood level,
• extends lifespan in model of aging.
TRIA-662 may provide a potential new standard of care for the treatment of cardio-metabolic disorders.
The clinical results from Phase II study warrant further investigations for TRIA-662 in cardio-metabolic diseases:
• coronary artery disease,
• pulmonary arterial disease,
• non-alcoholic steatohepatitis,
