Mechanism of Action

MECHANISM OF ACTION / RATIONALE

  • IMU-838 is a small molecule investigational drug (vidofludimus calcium) under development as an oral tablet formulation for the treatment of relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis, or RRMS, inflammatory bowel disease, or IBD, and other chronic inflammatory and autoimmune diseases. The company is also investigating IMU-838 as a potential treatment option for coronavirus disease 2019, or COVID-19.

  • By inhibiting dihydroorotate dehydrogenase (DHODH), a key enzyme of pyrimidine de novo biosynthesis, metabolically activated T and B immune cells experience metabolic stress, and the release of Th1 and Th17 key cytokines including IL-17A, IL-17F and IFNg is inhibited, thereby reducing inflammation. In preclinical studies of vidofludimus, the active moiety and free acid form of IMU-838, apoptosis (or programmed cell death) was induced in activated T cells, which Immunic believes may also play a crucial role in the activity of the drug by further dampening the inflammatory response (Learn more).
