InDex Pharmaceuticals is a Swedish pharmaceutical company seeking to improve the lives of patients suffering from immunological diseases. Our mission is to develop effective and safe drugs for diseases with a significant medical need.

The company’s lead asset is the drug candidate cobitolimod, which is in late stage clinical development for the treatment of moderate to severe ulcerative colitis – a debilitating, chronic inflammation of the large intestine. Despite the currently available drugs on the market, many patients with ulcerative colitis still suffer from severe symptoms, and current therapies can cause serious side effects

Cobitolimod has a new type of mechanism of action. It is a so-called Toll-like receptor 9 (TLR9) agonist that can provide an anti-inflammatory effect locally in the large intestine, which may induce mucosal healing and relief of the clinical symptoms in ulcerative colitis. InDex’s clinical studies have shown that cobitolimod has a competitive efficacy and a more favorable safety profile than what has been reported for the currently approved biological drugs. Given the outstanding combination of efficacy and safety, InDex is now advancing cobitolimod into phase III, which is the final stage of development before application for market approval.
