Hoth Therapeutics, Inc. Announces Positive Results From Pilot Study of BioLexa on Diabetic Skin Ulcers

New York, NY – July 22, 2019 – Hoth Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ: HOTH), a development stage biopharmaceutical company focused on unique targeted therapeutics for patients suffering from indications such as atopic dermatitis–also known as eczema–as well as dermatological and chronic wound disorders, today announced initial results of its Pilot Study of BioLexa application on diabetic skin ulcers.

 

This pilot study was designed to establish foundational protocols for assessing effectiveness of a therapeutic compound developed by Hoth Therapeutics, the BioLexa Platform, for accelerating and improving wound healing in the context of acute and chronic diabetic ulcers, using an animal model of impaired wound healing developed at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH).

 

Specific study objectives were:

 

  1. Optimize the method of application of the therapeutic compound (BioLexa) on diabetic skin wounds in the mouse models of acute and chronic diabetic wound healing established at the Vaccine and Immunotherapy Center (VIC) at MGH directed by Dr. Mark Poznansky.
  2. Optimize the Staphylococcus aureus inoculation dose to achieve biofilm growth in the infected diabetic wound model.

 

An animal protocol amendment was submitted to and approved by the MGH Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) to allow the application of the BioLexa compound on wounds in the established mouse model

 

A full Biosafety protocol was submitted to and approved by the Partners Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC) to allow the use of pathogens such as S. aureus.

 

All work was performed in compliance with these institutionally approved protocols.

 

After 22 days post-injury, the animals were euthanized and the dressings on the wounds were removed to reveal the wounds and collect tissue biopsies.

 

Upon removal of the wound dressings and the obscuring cream, Dr. Ruxandra Sirbulescu who designed and conducted the pilot study at MGH observed that the majority of the wounds, treated with either BioLexa or the carrier base control of BioLexa, were fully closed and re-epithelialized. While the present pilot study did not include wounds treated with saline solution, previous studies in this model have shown that wounds treated with control solutions, such as saline, remain fully open ulcers at 22 days post injury (Sirbulescu et al., 2017, Wound Repair Regen.).

 

Dr Sirbulescu remarked “We observed complete closure in all treated wounds, which is not typical for this experimental model. Moreover, several parameters associated with the quality of tissue regeneration were significantly improved after treatment of the open ulcers with Biolexa, including better collagen deposition and increased angiogenesis. Our next studies will aim to confirm the observed regenerative effects of the Biolexa platform in the context of chronic diabetic ulcers, with and without substantial bacterial burden.”

 

Robb Knie, CEO of Hoth commented “Preliminary results indicated that, as a wound care product, Biolexa performed extremely well in a mouse model of diabetic ulcers.  Hoth is excited about the next phase of our pilot program for DFU’s and look forward to sharing results upon the completion of the next module.”

 

Biopsies collected from all wounds were processed for histological evaluation. Tissue samples were sectioned transversally through the wound bed/scar, and the sections were stained with hematoxylin & eosin as well as Masson’s trichrome to evaluate tissue structure.

 

 

Example of longitudinal imaging of wounds in one representative animal (out of a total of 10). Over the course of 22 days the wounds remained covered. The cream compounds (either BioLexa or carrier control) were replenished on days 2 and 14. The treatment covered the wound bed and obscured the wound edges from view.

 

 

 High-magnification detail of a section (stained with Masson’s trichrome) collected from a healed wound biopsy treated with BioLexa compound. Note the complete reepithelialization process and the re-forming of an epidermal and dermal layer, with multiple newly formed blood vessels (capillaries). Fibroblasts in the dermis actively deposit collagen (blue).

 

The tissue sections were scored according to criteria described in detail previously (Sirbulescu et al., 2017, Wound Repair Regen), for the following categories (Figure 5): Amount of granulation tissue; Collagen fiber orientation; Maturity of newly deposited collagen; Pattern of collagen deposition; Angiogenesis; Thickness of regenerated tissue; Width of scar; Cutaneous nerve growth.

 

 

 Preliminary evaluation of the wound tissue biopsies at day 22 post injury and treatment with BioLexa or carrier control.

 

These preliminary data suggest a benefit of BioLexa treatment over placebo in certain categories. However, a larger, well-controlled study is required before any clear conclusion can be drawn on treatment efficacy.

Hoth Therapeutics Signs Term Sheet with Zylö Therapeutics to Acquire a License and Jointly Develop a Product to Treat Lupus

Hoth and Zylö to use new topical application of an endocannabinoid, anandamide (AEA), in nanoparticles

 

New York, NY –  May 14, 2019 – Hoth Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq: HOTH) a biopharmaceutical company focused on unique targeted therapeutics for patients suffering from indications such as atopic dermatitis–also known as eczema–as well as dermatological and chronic wound disorders, today announced that the company has signed a term sheet with Zylö Therapeutics Inc (Zylö) to co-develop a new treatment for patients suffering from Cutaneous Lupus Erythematosus (CLE).  CLE is a chronic autoimmune disease that affects the skin.

 

Zylö, dedicated to bringing innovative technologies to multiple facets of medicine, has an innovative sustained-release drug-delivery system that was developed by Joel Friedman MD PhD, Adam Friedman MD FAAD, and Andrew Draganski PhD. The delivery system uses patented xerogel-derived nanoparticles, called Z-pods™, to deliver—in a sustained and controlled manner—notoriously hard-to-deliver therapeutic agents through topical administration. For more information, please visit; http://www.zylotherapeutics.com/

 

Scientists at Einstein College of Medicine recently demonstrated that topical administration with AEA-loaded nanoparticles significantly prevents the development of CLE in an established animal model of lupus. This work reinforces and highlights the utility of targeting the endocannabinoid system for autoimmune rheumatic diseases.

 

The work at Einstein supports the thesis that AEA loaded into Z-pods™ improves drug skin penetration, reduces the expected inflammatory cytokine secretion by keratinocytes when exposed to ultraviolet radiation, prevents the development of CLE skin lesions, improves skin histopathology, prevents inflammation and structural damage on histology and reduces macrophages and C3 accumulation.

According to estimates by the Lupus Foundation of America (LFA), 1.5 Million Americans currently suffer from lupus, with 16,000 new cases reported annually. Tragically, lupus strikes mostly women of child-bearing age. Worldwide, the LFA estimates that at least five million people may have some form of the disease. Of the people diagnosed, approximately two-thirds will develop CLE. The annual average cost to provide medical treatment for a person with lupus: $6,000 to $10,000, with some treatment costing several thousand dollars a month.

 

“Management is extremely pleased to partner with Zylö Therapeutics, enhancing our portfolio of unique treatments for patients suffering from various dermatological related ailments,” stated, Mr. Robb Knie, CEO of Hoth Therapeutics.  “Zylö’s initial work shows significant promise in combating Cutaneous Lupus Erythematosus, and we look forward to working with them in order to bring this treatment to market.”

 

“We are thrilled to partner with Hoth, a company that is committed to innovative solutions and partnerships to develop treatments for diseases with a high unmet clinical need, such as lupus,” said Scott Pancoast, CEO of Zylö. “As we work with the Hoth team to advance AEA-loaded Z-pods through the next stages of development, we expect to further demonstrate the important role that our patented Z-pod delivery system plays in improving treatment outcomes.”

 

The term sheet is non-binding and neither party thereto shall have any obligation to consummate a transaction of any kind until such time as the parties have entered into a mutually agreeable definitive agreement. There can be no assurance that any such definitive agreement will be entered into or that the transaction will be completed on the terms set forth in the term sheet, or at all.

About Hoth Therapeutics


FOCUSING ON THE NEXT GENERATION OF THERAPEUTICS

 

OUR TECHNOLOGY IS BASED ON CUTTING-EDGE SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF CINCINNATI.

 

Hoth Therapeutics is a development stage biopharmaceutical company focused on proprietary therapeutics for patients suffering from indications such as atopic dermatitis, also known as eczema. To treat indications impacting more than 32 million Americans, Hoth is working to develop and commercialize the BioLexa™ Platform, a proprietary, patented, drug compound platform developed at the University of Cincinnati. The BioLexa Platform has achieved positive results at preclinical studies conducted at the University of Miami.

 

BioLexa PlatformTM

 

Hoth Therapeutics is a development-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on unique targeted therapeutics for patients suffering from indications such as atopic dermatitis, also known as eczema.

 

Hoth owns the exclusive rights to develop the BioLexa PlatformTM for all indications in humans. The BioLexa PlatformTM is a proprietary, patented, drug compound platform developed at the University of Cincinnati. The BioLexa PlatformTM combines an FDA-approved zinc chelator with one or more approved antibiotics in a topical dosage form to address unchecked eczema flare-ups by preventing the formation of infectious biofilms and the resulting clogging of sweat ducts. It is the first product candidate intended to prevent the symptom-triggering flare-ups rather than simply treating symptoms after they occur.

 

We intend to explore the use of the BioLexa PlatformTM for the treatment of atopic dermatitis, or eczema.

 

We also intend to explore the use of the BioLexa PlatformTM in the aesthetic dermatology field to help treat and reduce post-procedure infections, accelerate healing and improve clinical outcomes for patients undergoing procedures. We believe that the BioLexa PlatformTM’s ability to fight bacterial growth will enable the innate immune system to focus on optimal healing rather than fighting post-procedure infection.

 

Finally, we intend to explore the use of the BioLexa PlatformTM in connection with diabetic foot ulcers. We believe that the BioLexa PlatformTM‘s ability to fight bacterial growth will help initiate and/or improve chronic diabetic wound healing as well as accelerate the healing of diabetic wounds with S. aureus.

 

Genetic Marker License

 

Hoth has also licensed exclusive rights to certain patented technology from the University of Cincinnati for use in determining the risk that a patient will develop allergies to peanuts, milk and other foods as well as predict propensity for eczema. Hoth’s overall goal is to develop and make ready for commercialization a family of genetic screening tests based on the licensed technology.

 

THE BIOLEXA PLATFORM

 

The BioLexa Platform is a proprietary, patented antimicrobial therapy.

 

The Platform is based on cutting-edge scientific research from Univ. of Cincinnati (PNAS 2008, PNAS 2013, Biochemical J. 2017, Protein Science 2017).

 

BACKGROUND:

 

Centers for Disease Control data indicates that “biofilms” are implicated in over 2/3 of all skin infections. Biofilms are specialized bacterial colonies that are resistant to antibiotics and immune system responses. Moreover, staph bacteria require zinc to form the biofilms that allow the bacterial colonies to grow and resist treatment.

 

The BioLexa Platform is a synergistic combination of a zinc chelator and an antibiotic that prevents biofilms from forming, leaving the bacteria susceptible to elimination by the antibiotic.

 

BACTERIAL BIOFILMS: A MAJOR CHALLENGE

 

Biofilms are specialized colonies of bacteria that adhere to a surface and to one another. The bacteria growing in a biofilm are highly resistant to antibiotics and immune responses. As a result staph biofilms cause recurrent, hard to treat infections.

 

ZINC & STAPH BIOFILMS

 

Zinc is required for the formation of staph biofilms

 

 

The Staph biofilms form when thread-like thread-like proteins (Aap or SasG) on the bacterial surface stick to one another holding the cells together. The Herr Lab, run by Dr. Andrew Herr at the University of Cincinnati discovered that these proteins only become adhesive when exposed to zinc ions.

 

The BioLexa Platform traps all the zinc ions by adding a chelator called DTPA, which prevents Staph biofilm formation. In pre-clinical testing on animals, the BioLexa Platform showed impactful results.

 

 

FDA APPROVAL

 

HOTH THERAPEUTICS INTENDS TO PURSUE A 505(B)(2) REGULATORY PATHWAY.

 

FDA APPROVAL

 

The FDA allows some of the safety and efficacy information on active ingredients(s) to come from studies not conducted by Hoth. Because Hoth can rely on the historical data, we should have a much shorter time and cost to get BioLexa FDA approved, as compared to standard 505(B)(1) approval.
