Please note the ANZCTR will be unattended from Friday 20 December 2019 for the holidays. The Registry will re-open on Tuesday 07 January 2020. Submissions and updates will not be processed during that time.

Please be advised that as the ANZCTR is funded by Australia and New Zealand, we must prioritise submissions from these countries first. International submissions should allow additional time for registration. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

Summary
Brief summary
NP202 is an experimental drug being developed by Armaron Bio Pty Ltd for potential use as a treatment for people after they have had a heart attack (MI). After someone has a MI, their heart ‘remodels’, which means that it changes in size and shape. This damage can lead to it being weaker and less efficient, and ultimately to major heart problems. There are some drugs currently available which help prevent remodelling and are used for treatment post-MI. However, there is still a high rate of remodelling and major heart problems in people post-MI, so new drugs are needed. NP202 works in a different way to the drugs that are currently approved, and has been shown in animal studies to prevent post-MI remodelling. It is hoped that NP202 will help to reduce the damage to the heart that is caused by a MI in humans.
