After experiencing an acute ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI), percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is a preferred method of restoring blood flow to the heart. While this reperfusion has long-term benefits, it can result in reperfusion injury in the short term, which involves the formation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and neutrophil recruitment. FDY-5301 is a sodium iodide-based drug that acts as a catalyst in the conversion of hydrogen peroxide to water and oxygen. FDY-5301 is designed to be administered as an intravenous bolus following a STEMI, before reperfusion with PCI, to reduce the damage associated with reperfusion injury. Clinical trials have shown FDY-5301 administration to be safe, feasible, and fast-acting in its ability to increase plasma iodide concentration, and the results are favorable in demonstrating potential efficacy. FDY-5301 shows potential in its use to reduce the effects of reperfusion injury, and ongoing Phase 3 trials will allow for continued evaluation of its performance.
