Cerebral Adrenoleukodystrophy Understanding

Cerebral Adrenoleukodystrophy: Overview

Cerebral adrenoleukodystrophy – or CALD – is a rare and devastating neurologic disease that robs young patients of the chance to live a full life. The disease results in rapid loss of neurological function after the initial onset of symptoms and sadly, nearly half of patients who do not receive treatment die within five years of symptom onset. Adrenoleukodystrophy (ALD) is a rare, X-linked, metabolic disorder caused by a mutation in the ABCD1 gene which results in the toxic buildup of very long-chain fatty acids (VLCFA) in the brain and spinal cord. CALD is the most severe form of this neurodegenerative condition. The accumulation of VLCFA in the adrenal cortex and white matter of the brain and spinal cord leads to the progressive destruction of myelin, the protective sheath of the nerve cells in the brain that are responsible for thinking and muscle control. Without myelin, these nerves can no longer relay information to and from the brain. For many boys, adrenal insufficiency or behavioral problems are the first detected symptoms, preceding the onset of neurologic symptoms. As the disease progresses, boys develop vision and hearing problems, seizures, poor coordination, and difficulty swallowing. ALD is estimated to affect 1 in 5,000 to 1 in 17,000 newborns (both male and female), and approximately 1 in 20,000 to 1 in 30,000 newborn males. CALD develops in approximately 40% of affected boys and in a smaller number of adult men.

Cerebral Adrenoleukodystrophy Emerging Drugs Chapters

This segment of the Cerebral Adrenoleukodystrophy report encloses its detailed analysis of various drugs in different stages of clinical development, including phase II, I, preclinical and Discovery. It also helps to understand clinical trial details, expressive pharmacological action, agreements and collaborations, and the latest news and press releases.


Cerebral Adrenoleukodystrophy Emerging Drugs


MIN-102: Minoryx Therapeutics

Leriglitazone (MIN-102) is a novel, orally bioavailable and selective PPAR gamma agonist with a potential best-in-class profile indicated for CNS diseases. It is one of the several metabolites of pioglitazone and has a demonstrated sufficient brain penetration and favorable safety profile in humans, allowing PPAR gamma engagement in the CNS above the level that can be safely achieved with pioglitazone and other glitazones. It showed robust preclinical proof-of-concept in animal models of multiple diseases by modulating pathways leading to mitochondrial dysfunction, oxidative stress, neuroinflammation, demyelination and axonal degeneration.



PXL770 is a novel drug candidate that directly activates adenosine monophosphate-activated protein kinase (AMPK). AMPK is a central regulator of multiple metabolic pathways leading to the control of multiple metabolic pathways and reduced inflammation. The rationale for considering AMPK activators in ALD is based on several published findings that show links between AMPK and disease in both animals and humans (slide below). Based on these observations, PXL770 was evaluated in both the in vitro and in vivo ALD models (charts below). PXL770 suppressed elevated VLCFA levels in patient derived cells with an associated increase in expression of the compensatory ABCD2 transporter. PXL770 treatment of ABCD1 null mice also suppressed elevated VLCFA in spinal cord - and in brain and plasma (not shown). Additional experimental results included an observed improvement in neural histology and neuro-behavior in ABCD1 null mice following chronic PXL770 treatment.
