Quantum Genomics obtains positive results with heart failure study in dogs   (29/06/2015 18:45)

Quantum Genomics (Alternext - FR0011648971 - ALQGC), a biopharmaceutical company with the mission of developing new therapies for unmet medical needs in the field of cardiovascular diseases, announces that the study for the prevention and treatment of heart failure in dogs has been completed within the projected timeline.

The results show a statistically significant improvement during the fourth week in the cardiac ejection fraction in dogs treated over a 28-day period compared to untreated dogs.

These particularly promising results reinforce the positive data previously obtained in rats in a study at the Center for Interdisciplinary Research in Biology (Inserm U1050/CNRS UMR 7241) at College de France (Paris) and at the University of Ottawa Heart Institute, by teams led by Dr Llorens-Cortès (Prix Galien 2014) and Prof Leenen (Cardiovascular Research 2013, vol. 97 (3), 424-431), respectively.

It reinforces the pertinence of the development of brain aminopeptidase A inhibitors (BAPAIs), in animal and human health, for the treatment of heart failure.

Quantum Genomics points out that this study in dogs was carried out as part of the collaboration agreement with licensing option signed with a major company in the field of animal health.

The pharmaceutical partner now has six months to exercise the option to continue development and market the future animal health drug under a license agreement to be negotiated with Quantum Genomics.
