Biophytis reports clinical results for Sarconeos (BIO101) in sarcopenia treatment at the 16th SCWD International Congress

Biophytis announces that it is taking part in the 16th SCWD (Society on Sarcopenia, Cachexia & Wasting disorders) international congress, a flagship event bringing together experts from all over the world to share thoughts, research and innovations on sarcopenia, cachexia and wasting disorders.

Biophytis has given an oral presentation entitled “BIOPHYTIS BIO101 – a candidate treatment for muscle diseases” on the development of Sarconeos (BIO101) for the treatment of sarcopenia. It was made by Cendrine Tourette, PhD in Neuroscience and Director of translational and clinical research projects on neuromuscular diseases at Biophytis. Ms. Tourette also took part in a round table discussion with top-notch experts on new trials and recent results in the treatment of sarcopenia and cachexia.

Building on the promising results of Phase 2 of SARA-INT, Biophytis is currently in advanced discussions with the European (EMA) and American (FDA) regulatory authorities. EMA and FDA approvals for the start of Phase 3 of the SARA program are expected in the second half of 2023. Sarconeos (BIO101) would therefore be the first and only drug candidate to enter Phase 3 for the treatment of sarcopenia.
