AsclepiX Therapeutics, Inc.
AsclepiX Therapeutics Inc. is a biologics company using computational biology and artificial intelligence to identify potent peptide regulators of vascular and cellular homeostasis. The clinical candidate peptides discovered by AsclepiX tap into these naturally existing self-regulating mechanisms, evolved over millions of years, that the body uses to maintain homeostasis and thus restore and maintain health. AXT107, the lead clinical candidate, has a unique mechanism of action that inhibits vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and activates Tie2, two clinically proven pathways of diseases of the retina, and has the potential to transform the treatment of ocular diseases with best in class efficacy and a long duration of action that could support once yearly dosing. AXT107 is poised to enter the clinic in a Phase I / II trial in mid 2020.
