- Who we are
Minoryx is a clinical stage biotech company focused on the discovery and development of novel therapies for severe, orphan genetic diseases of the central nervous system (CNS) with high unmet medical need.
The company’s lead program is a novel, selective and differentiated PPAR gamma agonist (leriglitazone), which is currently in clinical development in multiple CNS diseases. Leriglitazone has demonstrated strong preclinical proof-of-concept in relevant animal models of disease and has successfully completed phase 1 clinical trials. Leriglitazone is currently in a pivotal phase 2/3 study in adrenomyeloneuropathy (AMN), a phase 2 study in cerebral Adrenoleukodystrophy (cALD) and a phase 2 study in Friedreich Ataxia (FDRA).
Leriglitazone has been granted Orphan Drug Designation for X-ALD and for FRDA by both the European Commission (EC) and the American Food and Drug Administration (FDA). In addition, the FDA also granted Fast Track Status to leriglitazone for development in patients with X-ALD.
The Company is also investigating the potential of leriglitazone in other CNS diseases.
