Intrommune’s lead product is INT-301 for the treatment of peanut allergy. INT-301 leverages the novel oral mucosal immunotherapy (OMIT) platform to integrate peanut allergy desensitization therapy into a patient’s everyday tooth brushing routine. Intrommune has exclusive global rights to develop OMIT for food allergy. There is currently no FDA-approved treatment for food allergy, including peanut allergy.
CEO Michael Nelson stated, “There is significant interest from the research, patient, and business communities in finding a safe, effective, and durable treatment for life-threatening food allergy, including peanut allergy. Our intuitive approach is backed by sound science and leading researchers. We are in a position to truly improve the lives of people with this serious condition.”
Intrommune is in talks with key food allergy thought leaders in the field of allergy and immunology. COO Erick Berglund said, “We are encouraged by the enthusiastic response of the scientific community. Our approach promises to improve patient outcomes, side effects profile, and adherence to therapy over the alternatives under studied by competitors and in academic research settings.”
