LONDON (Alliance News) - Redx Pharma PLC said Wednesday that it nominated the first development compound to treat fibrosis.

The new candidate, RXC006, is an oral porcupine inhibitor that will be developed as a first-in-class treatment for idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, a severe and life-threatening chronic lung condition with very poor prognosis and limited treatment options, the drug development company explained.

The company will present pre-clinical data, which showed that the compound is "very potent and highly effective", at the Anti-Fibrotic Drug Development summit, in the US, at the end of November.

Furthermore, the first in-man study for the product have been earmarked for 2020.

Redx shares were trading down 2.1% at 6.95 pence each.
