Tryp Therapeutics (CSE: TRYP) (OTCQB: TRYPF) is a pharmaceutical company focused on developing clinical-stage compounds for diseases with high unmet medical needs through accelerated regulatory pathways.

The company was founded in 2019 and is headquartered in San Diego, California.

Innovative Drug Pipeline

Tryp’s current focus is on advancing its two drug development platforms: its Psilocybin-for-Neuropsychiatric Disorders (PFN(TM)) program targeting fibromyalgia, eating disorders and chronic pain conditions; and razoxane for soft tissue sarcomas. The company intends to explore opportunities to monetize these platforms after generating Phase 2b clinical data.

The company’s development plans cover three strategic initiatives:

  • Develop: Tryp intends to utilize the FDA’s 505(b)(2) regulatory pathway with available third-party preclinical data to shorten the timelines and lower the cost of its development programs.
  • Protect: Tryp plans to utilize regulatory exclusivity, patents, trade secrets and proprietary know-how to protect the commercial lifespan of its drug candidates.
  • Monetize: Tryp intends to seek out licensing, acquisition and co-development opportunities for drug candidates following their Phase 2 stages of development.

PFN(TM) Program

Through its PFN(TM) program, the company is focused on developing psilocybin-based drug therapies for certain neuropsychiatric disorders that have distinct advantages over other drugs currently on the market or in development. These advantages include:

  • Increased efficacy
  • Natural blood-brain barrier penetration
  • Enhanced safety and toxicity profiles
  • Reduced risk of abuse
  • Reduced risk of addiction

Tryp’s PFN(TM) program features its lead drug candidate, TRP-8802. The company’s initial indication for TRP-8802 is fibromyalgia.

Fibromyalgia is believed to be a neurosensory disorder characterized in part by abnormalities in pain processing by the central nervous system. The three drugs with FDA approval for the treatment of fibromyalgia are Pregabalin (Lyrica(R)), Duloxetine (Cymbalta(R)) and Milnacipran (Savella(R)), which are only effective for a portion of patients suffering from the condition.

Tryp plans to seek FDA approval to proceed directly to Phase 2 clinical trials evaluating TRP-8802 as a treatment for fibromyalgia based on existing preclinical and clinical data for the active pharmaceutical ingredients in TRP-8802.

Tryp’s pipeline of indications for TRP-8802 also includes eating disorders and certain forms of chronic pain. The company expects to initiate Phase 2a clinical trials in these areas in 2021.

Tryp recently partnered with Albany Molecular Research Inc. (“AMRI”) for the manufacture of the company’s synthetic psilocybin using proprietary methods. AMRI has initiated the process of manufacturing a 200g non-GMP demonstration batch of psilocybin and will produce a batch of GMP psilocybin in mid-2021. As the holder of the Drug Master File, Tryp expects to be the only U.S.-based manufacturer of synthetic psilocybin in the industry.

Razoxane

Tryp’s second drug candidate, TRP-1001 (razoxane), is being developed as a treatment for soft tissue sarcomas and has been evaluated in multiple Phase 2 clinical trials conducted by clinicians unaffiliated with Tryp. The company believes that existing clinical data regarding razoxane will likely allow TRP-1001 to be studied in a Phase 2 trial without the need for extensive preclinical or Phase 1 trials.

Sarcomas are rare tumors that are derived from connective tissues in the body and comprise 7% of all cancers in children. In 2018, an estimated 13,000 new cases of soft tissue sarcoma were diagnosed, with the tumors resulting in over 5,000 deaths during that year in the United States alone (https://ibn.fm/nWOGq).

Market Outlook

With its drug development programs targeting multiple indications, Tryp is well positioned to capitalize on growth opportunities spanning a range of therapeutic markets. The global oncology drugs market, in particular, represents a sizable opportunity.

In 2018, oncology indications accounted for 25% of all drug sales, representing approximately $151 billion in market revenues. By 2024, spending on oncology-targeted therapeutics is expected to top $200 billion and account for roughly 30% of total drug sales, according to a study by Cowen Equity Research (https://ibn.fm/9iZhM).

Valued at $764 million in 2020, the global fibromyalgia treatment market presents unique opportunities for development due to the limited number of approved therapies. With treatment trending upward, the market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 9.2% and reach $1.4 billion in value by 2027 (https://ibn.fm/G66e7).
