About IMVT-1401

IMVT-1401 is a novel, fully human monoclonal antibody being investigated for the treatment of IgG-mediated autoimmune diseases. IMVT-1401 is the product of a multi-step, multi-year research program, conducted by Immunovant's collaboration partner, HanAll BioPharma, to design a highly specific anti-FcRn antibody optimized for delivery as a subcutaneous injection. These efforts have resulted in a product candidate that has been dosed at small volumes and with a small gauge needle. Immunovant intends to develop IMVT-1401 for debilitating autoimmune diseases in which there is robust evidence that pathogenic IgG antibodies drive disease manifestation and in which reduction of IgG antibodies should lead to clinical benefit. Immunovant has in-licensed the rights to develop, manufacture and commercialize IMVT-1401 in the United States, Canada, Mexico, the EU, the United Kingdom, Switzerland, the Middle East, North Africa and Latin America. IMVT-1401 presently is in Phase 2a clinical development for the treatment of myasthenia gravis ( Identifier: NCT03863080).
