MirimGene’s target of focus includes WARS among human aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases (ARSs). Especially, WARS, called tryptophanyl- tRNA synthetase secreted from monocytes is proved as a primary defense system against infection based upon Nature Microbiology. If hyperactivated WARS is blocked, autoimmune diseases including Rheumatoid Arthritis, Atopic Dermatitis and Inflammatory Bowel Disease can be treated based upon POC data in animals. If the reduced WARS in immunesuppressive patients is activated, varous infectious disease like sepsis and tuberculosis could be cure from hypo-immune status. MrimGene's antibody biologics have been developed based upon POC data in animals and upstream/downstream-processed in collaboration with SamSung Biologics. in 2023, GLP data are due to be generated and the application of IND for Clinical Phase 1 trial is expected at the beginning of 2024.
