Our Company

Amylyx Pharmaceuticals was founded in 2013 with the mission of improving the lives of patients with neurodegenerative diseases. The company’s lead therapeutic, AMX0035, is designed to simultaneously target pathways originating in the mitochondria and endoplasmic reticulum which lead to neuronal death and degradation. AMX0035 is currently in clinical trials in both Alzheimer’s disease and ALS.

The company is focused on evaluating AMX0035 in these indications and, if successful, intends to rapidly provide it to patients in need.
