AUR-101 is a selective, potent inverse agonist of the receptor RoRγt, designed as an oral agent for the treatment of IL17-driven immunological conditions, including psoriasis. Aurigene expects data from the INDUS study to be available by December, 2018.

Commenting on the trial, CSN Murthy, CEO of Aurigene said "This is the first study of the planned global clinical development for AUR-101; we are excited to have started the clinical evaluation of the compound and expect to mirror the excellent results seen in established pre-clinical disease models".

About AUR-101 

AUR-101 is a potent, oral RORϒt inverse agonist, with high selectivity across other ROR isoforms and nuclear hormone receptors and expected to confer a superior safety profile. AUR-101, with a good ADME/PK profile and high bioavailability, has demonstrated inhibition of IL-17A in whole blood from psoriasis patients and also very significant reduction in ear swelling and histopathology scores in two separate pre-clinical psoriasis models. In addition, AUR-101 has been found to be safe in preclinical toxicology evaluations, at several fold of anticipated efficacious doses in humans.
