Regor Initiates Phase 2 Study of Oral Once-daily GLP-1 Agonist RGT-075 for the Treatment of Obesity – MedNews

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., March 9, 2024. Regor Therapeutics Group (“Regor”), a clinical-stage global biopharmaceutical company powered by a cutting-edge drug discovery engine and differentiated clinical development pipeline, today announced that its Phase 2 trial of the highly selective oral GLP-1 agonist RGT-075 is initiated in adults with obesity or overweight with weight-related comorbidities and has First Patient First Visit (FPFV) on Mar 08, 2024. The topline results for this Phase 2 trial are expected to be announced in the second half of 2024. “The initiation of the Phase 2 trial marks an important milestone in the development of RGT-075 as we believe it could represent a convenient and potentially meaningful alternative to the currently available weight loss treatments,” said Michael Grimm, M.D., Ph.D., Head of Metabolic Diseases at Regor. “RGT-075 is designed to be administered orally once daily as a monotherapy or as part of a potential oral combination treatment for obesity. Phase 1 clinical data showed promising exploratory body weight trends despite short treatment duration,” added Dr. Grimm.

About the RGT-075 development program

The Phase 2 multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study is designed to evaluate the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics (PK), and pharmacodynamics (PD) of once-daily oral RGT-075 compared with placebo in adult patients with obesity or overweight with weight-related comorbidities. Approximately 60 adult participants with a BMI ≥ 27 kg/m2 and ≤ 45 kg/m2 will be enrolled and randomized to RGT-075 or placebo. The treatment will last 12 weeks; all participants on RGT001-075 will be given RGT-075 once daily (QD) titrated up over 6 weeks, then being maintained with the target dose for 6 weeks. Topline data from the Phase 2 study are expected to be announced in the second half of 2024.
