Episode 114, "AMX0035, Phase 3 PHOENIX Study, and Amylyx's Future Drug Development" features a conversation with Justin Klee and Josh Cohen, cofounders and cochief executive officers of Amylyx Pharmaceuticals, who sat down at the recently concluded AAN Annual Meeting to discuss the results from the pivotal phase 3 PHOENIX trial (NCT05021536) of AMX0035 (Relyvrio) in patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). The duo provided clarity on the findings, positive takeaways from the disappointing data, and the lessons learned in ALS drug development. In addition, the two provided commentary on the future plans of the therapy in other tauopathies like progressive supranuclear palsy and neurologic conditions like Wolfram syndrome. Furthermore, Klee and Cohen shared thoughts on the company's drug pipeline, including AMX0114, an antisense oligonucleotide in development for patients with ALS.
