Our second asset, DA-1726, is a novel oxyntomodulin (OXM) analogue that acts as a glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor (GLP1R) and glucagon receptor (GCGR) dual agonist, which we expect to bring through the Investigational New Drug (IND) application process, with the goal of initiating a Phase 1a safety study in the first half of 2024.”
