Revolo Biotherapeutics (“Revolo” or the “Company”), a company developing therapies that reset the immune system to achieve superior long-term remission for patients with autoimmune and allergic diseases, today announced that the last patient has completed a Phase 2a proof of concept clinical study investigating its immune-resetting molecule, ‘1104, for the treatment of patients with eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE).

“The last patient out marks a key milestone in our Phase 2a trial in EoE, and we are looking forward to announcing topline data early next year,” said Jonathan Rigby, Group Chief Executive Officer of Revolo Biotherapeutics. “’1104 has the unique ability to reset the immune system ahead of the inflammatory cascade, providing a potentially promising new treatment option for patients without causing immunosuppression. ‘1104 stands out from other drug products that treat allergic disease by its broad effect in reducing a spectrum of key inflammatory cytokines and reduction of inflammatory immune cells, such as eosinophils, mast cells, neutrophils and lymphocytes. We are confident that the data in early 2023 will support its potential to have an improvement in symptomatic and physiologic response for EoE patients.”

Evan Dellon, M.D., MPH, Gastroenterologist, Professor of Medicine and Adjunct Professor of Epidemiology at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill, and Principal Investigator for the clinical trial, added, “Despite the approval of the first treatment for EoE patients earlier this year, many are still very much in need of an effective and safe option to treat this complex and life-changing disease. Data from this study will provide insight into the safety and efficacy of ‘1104 in patients with EoE and, if positive, will inform the design of future late-stage studies. In the interest of patients, I am eager to see the data from this novel drug product.”

The Phase 2a, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial (NCT05084963) is designed to evaluate the safety and efficacy of ‘1104 in adults with EoE. Top line data is expected in early 2023.
