Amino Acids As Medicine

Why Amino Acids

Cumulative disruptions in amino acid homeostasis can lead to disease. Providing the cell with a potent dose of disease-specific amino acids can help the cell overcome the amino acid imbalance and return to a healthy state. When individual cells within an organ are healthy, organ function returns to normal.

Our lead clinical candidates have demonstrated in human and preclinical models an ability to bring homeostasis to dysregulated cells, repairing cellular function, restoring healthy pathway function, and regenerating tissue and healthy organ function. By leveraging the corrective effect of amino acids across multiple organs, we unlock the systems-wide potency of our therapeutic approach.
