Aeglea is a biotechnology company committed to developing enzyme-based therapeutics in the field of amino acid metabolism to treat rare diseases and cancer. The company’s engineered human enzymes are designed to degrade specific amino acids in the blood in order to reduce toxic levels of amino acids in inborn errors of metabolism or to exploit the dependence of certain cancers on specific amino acids. In addition to the ongoing Phase 1 clinical trial in patients with solid tumors in its lead product candidate AEB1102, Aeglea holds effective U.S. INDs for trials of AEB1102 in patients with Arginase I deficiency and in cancer patients with hematological malignancies. The company is building a pipeline of additional product candidates targeting key amino acids, including AEB4104, which degrades homocystine, a target for an inborn error of metabolism, as well as two potential treatments for cancer, AEB3103, which degrades cysteine/cystine, and AEB2109, which degrades methionine.
