Heart Failure 2022 Presentation Includes Preclinical Data Supporting TN-301 Effect in HFpEF Models
TN-301 IND Submission on Track for Second Half of 2022
Tenaya Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ: TNYA), a biotechnology company with a mission to discover, develop and deliver curative therapies that address the underlying causes of heart disease, announced that it will present preclinical data for its TN-301 program at the upcoming European Society of Cardiology (ESC) Heart Failure 2022 conference taking place May 21-24, 2022, in Madrid, Spain and virtually.
TN-301 (previously named TYA-11631) is a small molecule HDAC6 inhibitor initially being developed by Tenaya for the potential treatment of heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF). HFpEF is one of the greatest areas of unmet need in heart disease with more than three million patients in the United States. Data accepted for presentation at Heart Failure 2022 further elucidates the multi-modal mechanism of action by which HDAC6 inhibition has a direct impact on heart function and structure in several relevant models and compares the effect of HDAC6 inhibition to that of empagliflozin in a mouse model of HFpEF. Tenaya expects to submit an Investigational New Drug (IND) application to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the second half of 2022.
Details of the presentations are as follows:
