Orphan Drug Designation (ODD) granted to Vonafexor for Alport syndrome by both the European Medicines Agency (EMA) and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)
ENYO Pharma announces that both the European Medicines Agency (EMA) and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have granted Orphan Drug Designation (ODD) to Vonafexor, our fibrolytic & anti-inflammatory clinical compound, for the treatment of Alport syndrome.
Alport syndrome is a rare kidney disease, a genetic disorder affecting 1 in 5,000-10,000 live births. It is characterized by a progressive loss of kidney function and may result in hearing loss and eye abnormalities.
New publication: Hepatic and renal improvements with FXR agonist Vonafexor in individuals with suspected fibrotic NASH
ENYO Pharma is proud to share the publication of the results from our Phase 2 LIVIFY study with Vonafexor in NASH patients in Journal of Hepatology.
This article describes the remarkable effects of Vonafexor after only 12 weeks of treatment in these patients: strong liver fat reduction, weight loss, liver enzyme improvements …., and last but not least renal function recovery. These strongly differentiated fibrolytic and anti-inflammatory effects of Vonafexor compared to other FXR agonists correlate very well with those observed in several preclinical models of severe CKD and rare kidney diseases like Alport Syndrome.
New publication : An anti-diabetic drug targets NEET (CISD) proteins through destabilization of their [2Fe-2S] clusters
ENYO is proud to share international collaborative study showing the anti-diabetic potential of the small molecule dEF2905 (M1) designed by ENYO Pharma’s drugdiscovery platform.
The study driven by Pr R. Nechushtai from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem demonstrates the efficacy of M1 in correcting defective blood glucose homeostasis in a diabetic mouse model through [2Fe-2S] cluster destabilization of mitochondrial NEET proteins. This publication also highlights the ENYO Pharma’s drug discovery platform inspired by viruses.
We are pleased to sponsor the Swiss NASH Foundation launched in 2019 by Pr Jean-François Dufour. Its mission is to raise awareness and increase the knowledge about NASH and fatty liver in general. Through funding innovative research projects on NASH diagnostics, treatment and patient management, the foundation is joining the fight against this epidemic disease.
ENYO Pharma is in the Top 50 of the EIC ScalingUp List, in the Health Track. We were selected out of a universe of 3,000+ deeptech startups, as funded so far by the European Innovation Council (EIC) or SME Instrument.
