Amplifica’s AMP-303 safety and tolerability study targeting hair loss
SAN DIEGO, CA., June 28, 2023 – Amplifica Holdings Group, Inc. (“Amplifica”), a privately held, clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company announced the initiation of the first-in-human study of its lead candidate AMP-303. The primary objective of this initial study is to evaluate the safety and tolerability of AMP-303 along with an assessment on hair count in subjects with androgenetic alopecia. The trial marks a significant milestone in the development of innovative solutions to address the widespread issue of hair loss, which affects millions of men and women worldwide.
“The initiation of our first-in-human clinical study represents a major advancement in our commitment to delivering innovative treatments for hair loss,” commented Frank Fazio, President and CEO. “Aside from assessing AMP-303 in subjects with androgenetic alopecia, this study will serve as a strong foundation for subsequent clinical studies with Amplifica’s pipeline compounds.”
The study is a multicenter, randomized, double blinded and placebo-controlled study that will enroll male subjects across three groups: 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. The first subject was dosed on June 27, 2023 and the study is expected to be completed in first quarter of 2024.
“We are excited to embark on this landmark clinical trial program and collaborate with leading medical professionals to assess the potential of AMP-303,” added Wajdie Ahmad, Amplifica’s Executive Chairman. “The data generated from this study will provide crucial insights into Amplifica’s development programs.”
