JanOne Completes Pre-IND Meeting with FDA on Jan123

Company now has pathway toward formal drug application

LAS VEGAS, April 18, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- JanOne (Nasdaq: JAN), the biopharmaceutical innovator specializing in non-addicting painkillers and new treatments for the causes of pain, has completed a successful pre-IND meeting with the FDA regarding Jan123. Jan123 is the company's unique oral delivery of low dose naltrexone formulated to treat complex regional pain syndrome, an orphan disease of severe, debilitating impact.

Company now has pathway toward formal drug application

The Pre-IND meeting with the FDA produced a path toward formal drug application. Discussion topics included preclinical toxicology, CMC (Chemistry, Manufacturing and Control), pharmacokinetics, and clinical implementation. The agency's feedback will be used to move Jan123 toward a New Drug Application under a 505-b2 designation.

Dr. Amol Soin, JanOne's Chief Medical Officer, said, "We are very pleased with our interaction with the FDA. We now have a pathway toward generating the data needed for approval of Jan123. Complex Regional Pain Syndrome is a huge unmet medical need, and we believe that Jan123 can help patients who are suffering from this debilitating condition."

Jan123 is a low dose naltrexone drug candidate that is ideally suited to treat complex regional pain syndrome, a rare orphan disease. It is a unique oral biphasic release tablet that has demonstrated ability to facilitate delivery of the medication to obtain maximum therapeutic benefit.

JanOne CEO Tony Isaac noted that Jan123 is one of two late-stage innovative therapies for pain management developed by JanOne. He said, "We consider our work to be a critical component in the nation's multi-front battle against opioid addiction and overdose deaths."
