Algernon Pharmaceuticals Inc. is a clinical-stage drug repurposing company that investigates already approved drugs, and naturally occurring compounds, for new disease applications, moving them efficiently and safely into new human trials, developing new formulations and seeking new regulatory approvals. The Company specifically investigates compounds that have never been approved in the U.S. or Europe to avoid off label prescription writing. Off label prescription writing can interfere with the normal economic pricing models and revenue potential of newly approved drug treatments and may make them less attractive targets for licensing or acquisition.

Algernon’s drug discovery program is based on the concept of drug repurposing. Drug repurposing is the process of discovering new therapeutic uses for existing drugs. Repurposing offers several benefits over traditional drug development including a reduction in investment and risk, shorter research periods and as a result, a longer active patent life.

The company is conducting a Phase 2 clinical trial in Australia for Ifenprodil for idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) and chronic cough.

The company is in the planning stages of a Phase 1 clinical trial of DMT for stroke. DMT is a Schedule I drug and a known psychedelic compound that is part of the tryptamine family.

The company is also in the planning stages of a Phase 1 clinical trial for Ifenprodil for pancreatic cancer and small cell lung cancer. 

It is engaged in preclinical studies of Repirinast for chronic kidney disease. Repirinast, also known as NP-251, was developed in Japan and approved in 1987. Repirinast is no longer available in Japan, where it was initially approved as an anti-allergy medication. It was withdrawn from the market in 2013 for sales reasons.
