About Molecure S.A.
Molecure is a clinical stage biotechnology company that uses its world leading medicinal chemistry and biology capabilities to discover and develop first-in-class small molecule drug candidates that directly modulate underexplored protein targets and the function of RNA to treat multiple incurable diseases.
Our extensive in-house expertise has allowed us to collaborate with top global academic research institutes to access untapped, novel biology targets.
We have generated a diverse pipeline of seven distinct programs with the support of leading academic life science institutions globally, including Yale University, Rutgers University, the Flemish Institute for Biotechnology (VIB) in Ghent, the University of Michigan and the International Institute of Molecular and Cell Biology in Warsaw (IIMCB), which has significant expertise in RNA science and technology.
Our most advanced in-house drug candidate is OATD-01, a first-in-class dual chitinase inhibitor for the treatment of interstitial lung diseases, such as sarcoidosis and idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, that is Phase II ready. A Phase II trial in patients with sarcoidosis is expected to start in 2023.
Our second proprietary candidate is OATD-02, an oral, potent and selective first-in-class, dual arginase inhibitor (ARG1 and ARG2) for the treatment of cancer, which is at the stage of Phase I clinical development.
Our team brings together exceptional capabilities in medicinal chemistry and translational science combined with an experienced entrepreneurial management team that are passionate about exploring the unexplored.
