INT301 – Innovation Against Peanut Allergy
Intrommune’s lead product, INT301, is an oral mucosal immunotherapy (OMIT) product under development for the treatment of peanut allergies. INT301’s unique formulation is designed to desensitize an individual with peanut allergy using a toothpaste delivery system, protecting them in the event of accidental peanut exposure. More than 6 million people, including an estimated 1.7 million children, have a peanut allergy in the U.S. If approved, INT301 has the potential to be the first allergy immunotherapy treatment that easily integrates into a person’s daily routine as both first line and long-term maintenance therapy for peanut allergy.
“It is a privilege to invite Intrommune to participate in our 2021 dentech conference,” said Dr. Wenyuan Shi, PhD, Chief Executive Officer & Chief Science Officer of The Forsyth Institute. “We are excited to learn more about the role of the oral mucosa and its potential in the management of food allergies – an area with such high unmet medical need.”
