Incannex Receives HREC Approval for Phase 2 Clinical Trial Assessing IHL-675A for use in Treatment of Pain and Function in Rheumatoid Arthritis


• Incannex has received approval from HREC for the lead site, Emeritus Research, Camberwell, VIC for the Phase 2, Blinded, Placebo Controlled Clinical Trial to Determine the Safety and Effect on Pain and Function of IHL-675A in Patients with Rheumatoid Arthritis.
• The Phase 2 trial follows a successful Phase 1 trial where IHL-675A was observed to be well tolerated
• It follows animal study observations of IHL-675A substantially reducing inflammatory disease scores to a greater extent than hydroxychloroquine, a common long-standing prescription drug for rheumatoid arthritis with a considerable market profile
• This trial will be managed by Avance Clinical, an Australian and US CRO, who will engage 8-10 clinical trial sites across Australia and New Zealand, recruiting 128 patients in total.
• The trial will aim to assess the effect of IHL-675A on pain and function by utilising patient reported outcomes, disease scores and inflammatory biomarker analysis over a 24-week period.
• The results of the trial will establish the safety and efficacy of IHL-675A in rheumatoid arthritis patients and contribute to the combination rule assessment in a 505(b)2 new drug application dossier with FDA.
