LABORATORY ABSTRACT ON THE DRUG

Our lead product candidate, NGM282, is an engineered version of the human FGF19 hormone, a primary regulator of bile acid synthesis in the liver. It is also a key signaling molecule in metabolic processes involved in body weight maintenance, including glucose homeostasis and triglyceride regulation. However, overexpression of FGF19 has been shown to promote liver tumor development in transgenic mice. NGM282, accordingly, has been engineered to eliminate the elements of FGF19’s signaling that are associated with those tumorigenic properties while retaining both the FGFR1c- and FGFR4-mediated signaling activities of the native hormone that direct the regulation of metabolism and bile acid synthesis. Thus, we believe that NGM282 presents a unique opportunity to leverage the dual mechanism of FGF19 without the potential tumorigenicity risk, and are pursuing a multi-pronged development program to efficiently evaluate its drug profile and maximize the clinical and commercial potential of NGM282.

HISTORY AND ANALYSIS

FGF19 is known for its links with hepatocarcinoma, we need NGM282 data on long time treatment and a larger population to be positive on this drug !
