FOP patients harbor mutations in the ALK2 protein (also known as ACVR1) that drives excessive bone morphogenetic protein (BMP) signaling, which regulates cartilage and bone development. INCB000928 is an oral investigational drug designed to target and block this disease-causing mutant FOP protein hyperactivity. In preclinical studies, INCB000928 demonstrated potency for the target kinase, selectivity, safety and strong suppression of heterotopic ossification (HO) in animal models.
About the Clinical Trial
Incyte is currently conducting a
trial with INCB000928 in healthy volunteers (e.g. people without FOP) to establish the safety of the investigational drug. The
trial is evaluating single and multiple ascending doses of oral INCB000928 in healthy volunteers.
