Amplifica Begins Trial For AMP-303

On June 28, 2023, Amplifica Holdings Group announced the initiation of a clinical trial for one of its lead candidate molecules from the study of hairy moles.

Amplifica’s AMP-303 has officially entered a clinical trial. According to a news release on the company’s website and美通社, the first patient was dosed in a multicenter, randomized, double blinded and placebo-controlled study on June 27, 2023. There will be three subject groups within the trial: “subjects with recent onset of hair loss (defined as a history of hair loss of ~3 to 5 years), subjects with established hair loss (defined as a history of hair loss > 10 years); and subjects who have undergone a hair transplant procedure.This innovative trial design will reveal some new insights into how hair loss drugs can impact hair transplant procedures.

What’s important to take note of, is that the molecule osteopontin, which is a part of the hairy mole-hair growth phenomenon and was recently discussedin the news,was identified as AMP-203 on Amplifica’s website. The compound announced today to enter clinical trials is AMP-303, a distinct compound. Also, SCUBE3 was previously announced on Amplifica’s website asAMP-601.Therefore, it’s possible that AMP-303 could involve CD44, or be a completely different compound which has not been previously discussed.

Amplifica expects this study to be completed in the first quarter of 2024.

    The date range until Q1 2024 indicates that this study is not a standard phase 1 trial, which are typically completed within 60 days, pending enrollment. It will be interesting to learn more about AMP-303 as time rolls on.

    Great News, thank you for sharing this. I really hope that the results will be good and we can be excited for novel hair loss Treatments. How long do you think would such a study with all phases take?

      It’s hard to tell what type of regulatory path Amplifica is going for since we don’t know what the compound is. I think it may be possible that they could be looking at regulatory approval before 2027, or sooner, depending on certain details, like if 3 trials will be necessary.

        Hey FT long time no speak lol, out of curiosity why would it be a possibility that 3 trials may not be needed?

          Hey YoYo, depending on the type of compound it is, I have heard there are some substances where it may be possible to run a phase 1/2 trial and then go right into a phase 3.

    I’ve been following Amplifica since the news release of Scube3. It seems odd that their focus seems to have shifted from ‘scube3’ trails to the ‘osteopontin’ molecule. There must be a lot of behind-the-scenes work that is not made public. I know the competition in this field is intense.

    • 英格兰vs美国皇冠比分 on June 29, 2023 at 10:08 am

      Yes, and I believe you must be aware from the article that AMP-303 is not osteopontin either, Steven.

        This wired article states that AMP-303 is ‘a proprietary form of osteopontin’

          You’ve got a good eye for news LJ, I had spotted that myself and was planning to share in the comments section. So, there are two likely possibilities here: 1) The journalist at Wired made an error, or 2) AMP-303 actually does include osteopontin in some fashion.

          Journalist slight errors are somewhat common, and Amplifica’s own website pointed at osteopontin being labeled as AMP-203 (linked in the article), so I would learn towards #1, but it will remain to be seen for a while. I may try to clarify with Amplifica directly.

            Nice one FT, you and the other blog are lights in the darkness honestly so thanks for all your efforts.

            I also tend to agree with your interpretation, but Wired is also a decent outlet so it’s hard to call.

    From “The booming business of hair loss” review discussed earlier this year, it looks like AMP-303 has been in their pipeline for some time. Here’s a link to the patent mentioned in that review – seems to be a combination therapy that they’ve had patented since 2012. It’s covering either AMP-303 or AMP-506 (or both), the latter of which I haven’t heard anything about since Amplifica announced their fundraising in 2021.

    I’m not well-versed in patent language, anyone have any input/interpretations?

    • 英格兰vs美国皇冠比分 on July 1, 2023 at 9:54 pm

      Thanks for sharing Ryan, good find in the booming business review. I wonder if the authors of the review got that patent right for AMP-303/506.

    So we know anything about the dosing of it? Is it like a cure (10+ years) or very infrequent top ups like 6 months – a few years?
