Adrenoleukodystrophy (ALD) Understanding

Adrenoleukodystrophy (ALD): Overview

Adrenoleukodystrophy (ALD) is a rare, X-linked metabolic disorder. ALD is caused by mutations in the ABCD1 gene that affect the production of adrenoleukodystrophy protein (ALDP) and subsequently cause toxic accumulation of very long-chain fatty acids (VLCFAs) primarily in the adrenal cortex and white matter of the brain and spinal cord. This brain disorder destroys myelin, the protective sheath that surrounds the brain's neurons. Childhood Cerebral ALD is the most devastating form of adrenoleukodystrophy. Signs and symptoms of the adrenomyeloneuropathy type appear between early adulthood and middle age. Affected individuals develop progressive stiffness and weakness in their legs (paraparesis), experience urinary and genital tract disorders, and often show changes in behavior and thinking ability. Diagnosis of ALD is based on physical examination and various tests like blood testing, MRI, vision screening, skin biopsy and fibroblast cell culture. Stem cell transplant effective treatment option for cerebral ALD. Gene therapy is being evaluated as a potential treatment for cerebral ALD.

"Adrenoleukodystrophy (ALD) - Pipeline Insight, 2021" report outlays comprehensive insights of present scenario and growth prospects across the indication. A detailed picture of the Adrenoleukodystrophy (ALD) pipeline landscape is provided which includes the disease overview and Adrenoleukodystrophy (ALD) treatment guidelines. The assessment part of the report embraces, in depth Adrenoleukodystrophy (ALD) commercial assessment and clinical assessment of the pipeline products under development.

Adrenoleukodystrophy (ALD) Emerging Drugs Chapters

This segment of the Adrenoleukodystrophy (ALD) report encloses its detailed analysis of various drugs in different stages of clinical development, including phase III, 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.

Adrenoleukodystrophy (ALD) Emerging Drugs

Elivaldogene autotemcel: bluebird bio

Eli-cel is a one-time investigational gene therapy designed to add functional copies of the ABCD1 gene into a patient's own hematopoietic (blood) stem cells (HSCs) that have been transduced ex vivo with the Lenti-D lentiviral vector (LVV). The addition of a functional gene allows patients to produce the adrenoleukodystrophy protein (ALDP). In October 2020, Bluebird bio announced that the European Medicines Agency (EMA) accepted the company's marketing authorization application (MAA) for elivaldogene autotemcel (eli-cel, Lenti-D™) gene therapy for the treatment of patients with cerebral adrenoleukodystrophy (CALD). The EMA granted eli-cel gene therapy Priorities Medicines scheme (PRIME) in July 2018, and previously granted Orphan Medicinal Product designation to eli-cel. In July 2020, the Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP) of the EMA granted an accelerated assessment to eli-cel. The U.S. FDA granted eli-cel Orphan Drug status, Rare Pediatric Disease designation, and Breakthrough Therapy designation for the treatment of CALD.

Leriglitazone: Minoryx Therapeutics

Leriglitazone (MIN-102) is a novel, orally bioavailable and selective PPAR gamma agonist. Leriglitazone (MIN-102), by activating PPAR gamma, modulates the expression of genes involved in mitochondrial biogenesis (PGC-1a) and therefore restores the lost energy balance, decreases oxidative stress and restores mitochondrial function caused by accumulation of VLCFAs. The drug is in Phase II/III clinical development for the treatment of adrenoleukodystrophy, a registration enabling Phase 2 in cerebral ALD (cALD) and in a Phase 2 in Friedreich's ataxia.
