About BT-11

Landos’ lead product candidate BT-11 is a first-in-class, orally active therapeutic that acts locally in the gastrointestinal tract for treatment of Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. BT-11 has shown outstanding therapeutic efficacy in preclinical models, a benign safety profile without the concerns of systemic exposure, and it is advancing toward two Investigational New Drug (IND) filings in 2018. BT-11 intercepts IBD by decreasing the production of inflammatory mediators and increasing anti-inflammatory molecules within the gastrointestinal tract.
