Pipeline Updates

  • Following positive biomarker results in adults, including near-normalization of lipid profiles, ADX-629, a first-in-class orally administered investigational RASP modulator, advanced to the pediatric cohort of the Phase 2 clinical trial in Sjögren-Larsson Syndrome, a rare inborn error of metabolism caused by mutations in fatty aldehyde dehydrogenase and characterized by cognitive dysfunction and skin disorders. Top-line results from approximately five pediatric patients are expected in 2025.
  • Based on new results in a preclinical model of obesity, novel RASP modulator ADX-743 was advanced to Investigational New Drug (IND)-enabling studies. ADX-743 is an analog of ADX-629, which has demonstrated lowering of triglycerides and fatty acids in Phase 1 and Phase 2 clinical trials. Pending additional results, Aldeyra expects to submit an IND application for ADX-743 or an alternative RASP modulator for obesity or hypertriglyceridemia in 2025.
  • Based in part on superior preclinical results in atopic dermatitis and unprecedented exposure in preclinical RASP modulator pharmacokinetic models, ADX-248 will be advanced in lieu of ADX-246 to Phase 1/2 clinical testing in atopic dermatitis. Phase 1 clinical testing of ADX-248 is expected to begin in the second half of 2024.
  • Novel RASP modulator ADX-631 has initiated preclinical testing in models of retinal disease. ADX-631 is an analog of ADX-103, which previously demonstrated activity in animal models of the dry form of age-related macular degeneration (dry AMD), retinal inflammation, and diabetic macular edema. Aldeyra expects to submit an IND application for ADX-631 or an alternative RASP modulator for the treatment of dry AMD or geographic atrophy in the first half of 2025.

“Consistent with the new data presented at our Research and Development Day in April of this year, we continue to expand our novel RASP modulator pipeline with the discovery and advancement of new RASP modulators for the treatment of inflammatory and metabolic diseases,” stated Todd C. Brady, M.D., Ph.D., President and CEO of Aldeyra. “We look forward to discussing our recent progress on today’s call with investors and are excited to share subsequent updates on our pipeline throughout the remainder of 2024.”

About Aldeyra

Aldeyra Therapeutics is a biotechnology company devoted to discovering innovative therapies designed to treat immune-mediated and metabolic diseases. Our approach is to develop pharmaceuticals that modulate protein systems, instead of directly inhibiting or activating single protein targets, with the goal of optimizing multiple pathways at once while minimizing toxicity. Our product candidates include RASP (reactive aldehyde species) modulators ADX-629, ADX-248, ADX-743, ADX-631, and chemically related molecules for the potential treatment of systemic and retinal immune-mediated and metabolic diseases. Our late-stage product candidates are reproxalap, a RASP modulator for the potential treatment of dry eye disease and allergic conjunctivitis, and ADX-2191, a novel formulation of intravitreal methotrexate for the potential treatment of retinitis pigmentosa.
