MyMD Pharmaceuticals, Inc. is an early-stage development company pursuing the discovery of mechanisms of diseases that affect an aging population, followed by implementation of treatments to prevent or cure them.
Our working hypothesis is that an excessive accumulation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) within the cell contributes to the development of different types of diseases that are known to increase with aging, such as autoimmune diseases and cancers.
Aided by advances in the understanding of cell biology and drug design, we focus on designing therapies that target the root of the disease, at the intracellular level. In particular, we aim to achieve a significant improvement over therapies that are more toxic or affect only the symptoms of the disease, rather than its causes.
Through our commitment to patients suffering from devastating diseases, MyMD is developing a platform of potential products based on our proprietary small molecule.
MyMD’s early stage development program emphasizes collaboration with a team of highly experienced professionals and partner companies. We believe that our collaborative strategy supports cost-effective potential product innovation and accelerated drug development.
The company has developed a proprietary small molecule, which modifies the pathologic effects of Reactive Oxygen Species through regulation of Hydrogen Peroxide. Recent scientific findings have implicated a strong relationship between ROS accumulation and the initiation and progression of autoimmunity.
We are advancing rapidly toward the filing of an Investigational New Drug Application with the FDA for our lead candidate. At the same time, we are developing preclinical programs in other conditions. Our approach could revolutionize treatment for other autoimmune disorders where the underlying pathology also may be driven or enhanced by ROS . These disorders often have a high unmet need for safe, effective therapies.
