Cambridge, Massachusetts–based Amylyx has dosed the first participant in its phase 2 HELIOS clinical trial of AMX0035 focusing on Wolfram syndrome. The condition is an ultra-rare genetic disorder involving the endocrine system. Symptoms of Wolfram syndrome can include diabetes insipidus, diabetes mellitus, optic atrophy and hearing loss.
In September, Amylyx won FDA approval for AMX0035 (sodium phenylbutyrate and taurursodiol), marketed as Relyvrio, for adults with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).
Both sodium phenylbutyrate and taurursodiol are smal molecules demonstrating neuroprotective effects in preclinical studies.Trial design
The HELIOS is an exploratory open-label proof of biology study. Amylyx anticipates topline results from HELIOS in 2024.
