Morphic Therapeutic has been developing an oral small molecule inhibitor of the α4β7 integrin dubbed MORF-057 for the treatment of IBD and today the company announced the positive interim results from its Phase 1 clinical trial of that inhibitor. The company shared that:

  • α4β7 inhibition has been clinically validated for the treatment of IBD, but no oral treatment options are currently available.
  • Efficacy, pharmacokinetics, and pharmacodynamics of MORF-057 were assessed in healthy volunteers in this single ascending dose (SAD) clinical trial.
  • MORF-057 was well tolerated in the Phase 1 SAD trial with no serious adverse events (SAEs) and no significant lab abnormalities observed in any of the 5 cohorts receiving MORF-057 in single doses ranging from 25 mg to 400 mg.
  • The study demonstrated a generally dose-dependent and predictable pharmacokinetic profile with MORF-057.
  • In the trial, receptor occupancy (RO) was the most important pharmacodynamic measurement, which expressed the proportion of α4β7 receptors bound by MORF-057 12 hours after the dose.
  • Across the three highest dose cohorts, MORF-057 achieved greater than 95% mean α4β7 RO, including more than 99% RO in subjects above the 25mg dose cohorts.

  • Following oral administration twice daily, these single dose data suggest that MORF-057 may reach saturating levels of receptor occupancy.
  • The study did not show quantifiable levels of α4β1 RO.
