Important new receptors for Follicum’s lead candidate FOL-005 in hair follicle cells identified.
Excerpt from the press release from Follicum:
Investigation of mechanism of action
The research into FOL-005’s mechanism of action was conducted in collaboration with a specialized Swiss company (Dualsystems Biotech) and aimed to identify the proteins that FOL-005 binds to. Two different cell lines from human hair follicles were used and as a result several interesting receptors were identified. These will now be further mapped in detail in preclinical trials. Corresponding studies are also being conducted to identify receptors relevant for the company’s separate diabetes project.
