MirimGENE's target of focus includes WARS among human aminoacyl-tRNA synthetase (ARSs). WARS, tryptophanyl-tRNA synthetase secreted from monocytes, is provided as a primary defense system against infection published in Nature Microbiology. If hyperactivated WARS is blocked, autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis can be treated based on animal POC data. Activation of reduced WARS in immunosuppressive patients will cure various infectious diseases like sepsis and tuberculosis from hypo-immune status. MirimGENE's antibody biologics have been developed based on animal POC data and upstream/downstream processed in collaboration with Samsung Biologics. In 2024, GLP data are due to be generated then the application of IND for the Clinical Phase 1 trial will follow.
