Our Research

Nephrology

Our lead nephrology product, Rayaldee® (calcifediol), is approved by the U.S Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of secondary hyperparathyroidism (SHPT) in patients with stage 3-4 chronic kidney disease (CKD) with vitamin D insufficiency. A phase 2 clinical trial to evaluate the safety and efficacy of Rayaldee® to treat SHPT is currently underway in patients with stage 5 CKD who require regular hemodialysis.

Endocrinology

Somatrogon©

Our human growth hormone (hGH) therapy utilizes proprietary carboxyl-terminal peptide (CTP) technology to extend the therapeutic life of hGH, allowing once weekly injections as opposed to daily injections using current treatments. We’ve recently completed phase 3 clinical trials evaluating Somatrogon© as a treatment for growth hormone deficiency in both children and adults. An additional phase 3 clinical trial evaluating Somatrogon© as a treatment for pediatric growth hormone deficiency in Japan is on-going. Pfizer, Inc is our commercial partner for this product.

OPK88003 (Oxyntomodulin Analog)

The naturally occurring peptide oxyntomodulin is a dual agonist, that binds to both GLP-1 and glucagon receptors, regulating metabolic function, including blood-glucose, and suppressing appetite. OPK88003, an oxyntomodulin analog, is being developed for the treatment of obesity and diabetes.

Urology

Selective androgen receptor modulators (SARMs) are a class of androgen receptor ligands exhibiting modified anabolic and androgenic effects. We believe OPK88004 holds considerable promise for a variety of clinical indications, such as frailty and functional limitations associated with aging and chronic illnesses, cancer and osteoporosis.

Rare Diseases

OPK88001 (AntagoNAT)

OPK88001 (AntagoNAT)

In our anti-Natural Antisense Transcripts (AntagoNAT) platform technology, an oligonucleotide molecule is designed to interfere with regulatory gene expression to enhance production of endogenous functional proteins. One of the leading applications of our AntagoNAT technology is OPK88001, which is designed for the treatment of Dravet syndrome by targeting the mutated SCN1A gene.

MOD-15014 (GLP-2)

MOD-15014 (GLP-2)

MOD-15014 is a long acting glucagon-like peptide-2 (GLP-2) analog. In pre-clinical studies it has been shown to be potent and rapid acting in the treatment of short bowel syndrome (SBS), a malabsorption disorder due to a non-functional small intestine. MOD-15014 is currently in pre-clinical development.

MOD-12014 (CTP-hGH Antagonist)

MOD-12014 (CTP-hGH Antagonist)

Human growth hormone (hGH) antagonists are used to treat acromegaly, a disorder caused by excess human growth hormone. MOD-12014 utilizes our Carboxyl Terminal Peptide (CTP) technology, which is also used in successful phase 3 product somatrogon (hGH-CTP), to extend the half life of the hGH antagonist.

MOD-13012 (CTP-IGF-1)

MOD-13012 (CTP-IGF-1)

Severe primary insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1) deficiency (SPIGFD) results in short stature and increased insulin sensitivity in afflicted patients. We are developing MOD-13012, utilizing our Carboxyl Terminal Peptide (CTP) technology, as an extended release IGF-1 repletion therapy for the treatment of SPIGFD.
