Silo Pharma (NASDAQ: SILO), a developmental stage biopharmaceutical company focused on merging traditional therapeutics with psychedelic research, today announced its plans to initiate a pilot study of its novel joint homing peptides targeting rheumatoid arthritis (“RA”), designated as SPU-21, in human synovial tissue surrounding joints and tendons. The three-month study will assess the binding affinity of the peptide in healthy human and RA synovial tissue, with initial data expected during the first quarter of 2023. “SPU-21 was shown to inhibit arthritic progression in a preclinical animal model, so we are proceeding to advance our research into human synovial tissue, where we will first assess binding affinity,” said Eric Weisblum, CEO of Silo Pharma. “Positive data from this important study could support further research into the interaction of our joint homing peptide as a potential therapy for autoimmune disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis and inflammation. We look forward to progressing our development of SPU-21 through our valued collaboration with the University of Maryland, Baltimore.”
