Today’s announcement marks Entrada’s transition into a clinical company.

The primary objective of Entrada’s Phase 1 clinical trial, conducted in the United Kingdom, is to evaluate the safety and tolerability of a single dose of ENTR-601-44 in healthy male volunteers, with a target enrollment of approximately 40 participants. The trial will also evaluate pharmacokinetics and target engagement, as measured by exon skipping in the skeletal muscle.
