Stoke Therapeutics is evaluating the safety and tolerability of single ascending doses of STK-001 in patients with Dravet syndrome. Change in seizure frequency and quality of life will be measured as secondary endpoints in this open-label study.
STK-001 is an investigational new medicine for the treatment of Dravet syndrome. STK-001 is an antisense oligonucleotide (ASO) that is intended to increase the level of productive SCN1A messenger RNA (mRNA) and consequently increase the expression of the sodium channel Nav1.1 protein. This RNA-based approach is not gene therapy, but rather RNA modulation, as it does not manipulate nor insert genetic deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA).
STK-001 is designed to upregulate Nav1.1 protein expression from the nonmutant (wild-type) copy of the SCN1A gene to restore physiological Nav1.1 levels. Nav1.1 levels are reduced in people with Dravet syndrome. Stoke has generated preclinical data demonstrating proof-of-mechanism for STK-001.
