BOSTON and ATLANTA, June 21, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Inhibikase Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq: IKT) (Inhibikase or Company), a clinical-stage pharmaceutical company developing protein kinase inhibitor therapeutics to modify the course of Parkinson's disease ("PD"), Parkinson's-related disorders and other diseases of the Abelson Tyrosine Kinases, today announced a physician and patient awareness campaign for its Phase 2 '201' program evaluating IkT-148009 as a potentially disease-modifying treatment of Parkinson's disease.
Dr. Milton Werner, President & CEO of Inhibikase Therapeutics will present to community neurologists and movement disorder specialists at multiple regional seminars where the Company has activated clinical trial sites. The first two seminars will take place at the Westin Southfield in Southfield, Michigan on June 26 and at the Le Meridién Dallas, the Stoneleigh, in Dallas, Texas on July 11.
"Since we re-initiated the '201' trial, we have worked diligently to reactivate and retrain clinical trial sites and anticipate having up to 22 of 35 selected sites open for screening by the end of the second quarter. Our clinical team is working closely with each site to further improve patient screening logistics as well as candidate identification," commented Dr. Werner. "In addition, we are initiating an awareness campaign to community neurologists and movement disorder specialists by hosting regional medical seminars about IkT-148009 and its potential as a transformative treatment for Parkinson's disease. Further, we plan to launch a dedicated online patient portal (www.the201trial.com) in the second quarter to provide patients a better understanding of the trial and how to be evaluated for participation. Taken together, we believe that these activities, in conjunction with the significant enhancements we have made to the trial itself, will allow us to enhance enrollment of the '201' trial."
