KaNDy Therapeutics is a clinical-stage company focused on optimising the potential of NT-814 in the treatment of common, chronic debilitating female sex-hormone related conditions, with an initial focus on symptoms of the menopause.
KaNDy Therapeutics was spun out from NeRRe Therapeutics, itself a spin out from GSK, in 2017 at which time all data and intellectual property associated with NT-814 was transferred to KaNDy Therapeutics.
NT-814 is a unique, first-in-class dual mechanism NK-1,3 antagonist therapy dosed orally once daily. It has the potential to be a true breakthrough non-hormonal alternative to hormone replacement therapy (HRT). Following a successful Phase 2a proof of concept study , NT-814 completed a Phase 2b study, SWITCH-1, with data reported in January 2020. The study demonstrated NT-814’s potential to rapidly and profoundly reduce key symptoms of the menopause. SWITCH-1 found that NT-814 significantly reduced the frequency of hot flashes, which was associated with improvements in quality of life, mood and sleep.
Menopausal vasomotor symptoms (hot flashes/flushes) affect up to 75% of women going through the menopausal transition. Symptoms last for 1–2 years after menopause in most women but may continue for up to 10 years or longer in others. Post-menopausal symptoms are experienced daily by millions of women globally. Approximately 20% of women will suffer from debilitating symptoms, multiple times a day. Hot flashes are the primary reason women seek medical help during the menopause.
Not only do they disturb women at work and interrupt daily activities, but they also have a detrimental effect on sleep. These symptoms, while not life-threatening or life-limiting, are debilitating for those affected and result in significant incremental healthcare and economic costs.
