Lexipafant is a platelet-activating factor (PAF) antagonist that was in early clinical development at DevCo for the oral treatment of dementia and motor function disorders in HIV patients, intravenous treatment of acute pancreatitis, as well as for the prevention of certain serious renal and neurological complications experienced by patients undergoing cardiac surgery, including stroke. However, no recent developments of the drug candidate have been reported by the company.
Lexipafant was also being studied at British Biotech (now Vernalis) for the intravenous treatment of pancreatitis, but development for this indication was discontinued. In 2002, DevCo obtained from British Biotech exclusive rights to develop, manufacture and sell lexipafant for the treatment of human disease, excluding the fields of oncology and ophthalmology.
