Xeris Biopharma reaches Phase 2 milestone by dosing first participant in hypothyroidism study

–News Direct–

Xeris Biopharma Chairman & CEO Paul Edick joins Natalie Stoberman from the Proactive newsroom to share the latest milestone of having its first participant being dosed in a multi-center, open label, Phase 2 study of XP-8121 for the treatment of adults with hypothyroidism.

Edick says this milestone is crucial considering initiating such studies is challenging and time-consuming. He adds that Xeris Biopharma aims to compare its stable therapy with existing treatments in the market, which are often poorly tolerated or improperly absorbed. Xeris' innovative liquid stable formulation offers a once-weekly subcutaneous injection, bypassing the gastrointestinal tract and providing consistent blood levels.

The ongoing clinical study will need to dose around 40 to 50 patients before moving on to Phase 3 of the program.
