Silo Pharma (NASDAQ: SILO), a developmental-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on merging traditional therapeutics with psychedelic research, recently revealed positive interim data from its dose optimization study of SPU-21 joint homing peptides for subcutaneous administration of anti-arthritic agents. “Silo Pharma provided an update on the ongoing study as of Dec. 30, 2022. During the study, tests were conducted to evaluate the disease-suppressive effects of an SPU-21 peptide-guided anti-arthritis drug versus the drug alone. The drug used in the study was dexamethasone (“DEX”), a corticosteroid used for its anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressant effects. Earlier results of the same study successfully demonstrated that the subcutaneous (‘SC’) route of liposomal administration (small needle injection into shallow soft tissue just under the layer of skin) was suited for use in targeted drug delivery of anti-arthritic agents,” a recent article reads. “We believe that the positive results of these latest tests show that our peptide with DEX given subcutaneously was effective in controlling arthritis progression. The effect of lipo-DEX was superior to that of DEX alone when both were administered via the SC route,” Eric Weisblum, Silo Pharma CEO, is quoted as saying. “Since patients widely prefer SC administration over intravenous (‘IV’) infusion for multiple reasons, we believe the superiority and practicality of our liposomal joint homing peptide bode well for broad market potential. Meanwhile, we continue to explore other novel therapeutics for optimal pairing with SPU-21, targeting rheumatoid arthritis as our initial indication.”
