Regenacy is poised to deliver the first treatment for peripheral neuropathy

Unlike standard analgesics, the company’s lead compound ricolinostat is a disease-modifying therapy that reverses nerve damage and reduces pain, numbness, and muscle weakness resulting from diabetes, chemotherapy, and Charcot–Marie–Tooth disease.

Regenacy Pharmaceuticals

Regenacy Pharmaceuticals is developing a novel, disease-modifying approach to treating peripheral neuropathies that goes beyond pain and symptom management to restore peripheral nerve function. Our lead compound ricolinostat (ACY-1215) is an oral, selective inhibitor of the microtubule modifying enzyme HDAC6 with first-in-class potential, currently positioned to enter Phase 2 clinical trials. Our investigation of ricolinostat for diabetic, chemotherapy-induced and inherited peripheral neuropathies is based on compelling proof-of-concept preclinical studies demonstrating restoration of normal nerve function. We were founded in December 2016 following the acquisition of Acetylon Pharmaceuticals by Celgene. Regenacy received exclusive rights to ricolinostat, a clinical stage, orally bioavailable, HDAC6 selective inhibitor, for a range of non-cancer disease indications. We also have a unique and proprietary portfolio of selective HDAC1,2 inhibitors with potential for treating cancer, hemoglobinopathies, and cognitive dysfunction.
