Galapagos starts first Phase 1 trial with Toledo compound
  • Novel target class with dual action in inflammatory disorders
  • Discovered and validated on Galapagos' target discovery platform
  • Fully owned and proprietary

Mechelen, Belgium; 7 January 2019, 7.30 CET - Galapagos NV (Euronext & NASDAQ: GLPG) initiated a Phase 1 trial with GLPG3312, a first generation compound against a novel and undisclosed inflammation target class discovered by Galapagos.

The Phase 1 trial is a double-blind, placebo-controlled, single-center study evaluating the efficacy, safety, tolerability, and PK/PD[1] of GLPG3312 in 76 adult healthy male volunteers.

"We are excited by the rapid progression of our Toledo program into the clinic," said Dr. Piet Wigerinck, Chief Scientific Officer at Galapagos. "Thanks to its unique mechanism of action, the Toledo program has the potential to become a new paradigm in the treatment of inflammatory diseases."

About Toledo

"Toledo" is a code name for a novel class discovered by Galapagos. The target family has a dual mode of action on inflammation by stimulating anti-inflammatory cytokines and inhibiting pro-inflammatory cytokines. We have observed unprecedented activity in various inflammatory preclinical models with compounds targeting the class. Galapagos is executing on a broad program to discover and develop multiple series of compounds acting on Toledo, aimed at activity across several inflammatory conditions.

GLPG3312 is an investigational drug and its efficacy and safety have not been established.

More information about Toledo can be found in our R&D Update 2018: www.glpg.com/webcasts.

Forward-looking statements

This release may contain forward-looking statements, including, among other things, statements regarding Galapagos' strategic ambitions, the mechanism of action and potential activity of Toledo compounds including GLPG3312, the anticipated timing of clinical trials with GLPG3312, the progression and results of such trials, future regulatory submissions and Galapagos' interactions with regulatory authorities. Galapagos cautions the reader that forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance. Forward-looking statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors which might cause the actual results, financial condition and liquidity, performance or achievements of Galapagos, or industry results, to be materially different from any historic or future results, financial conditions and liquidity, performance or achievements expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements.
