How Drug Works
Dogs would get a shot or pill every three to six months. The FDA approved the effectiveness of the shot. The company is now looking into a pill form.
"We designed LOY–001 as a long-acting injectable administered by your veterinarian every three to six months. In parallel, through our recently-announced partnership with Crinetics, we’re also developing LOY-003, a daily pill to address this same IGF-1 over-expression," Halioua said.
If approved both could be ready by 2026.
Recruiting Senior Dogs For Test
Loyal is also recruiting senior dogs to be part of its study.
"Loyal is recruiting senior dogs to be part of our STAY study — the final effectiveness study for LOY-002, our medication to help dogs live longer and stay healthier as they age," the company states on its website.
