Mission: Minoryx Therapeutics is focused on a group of rare genetic diseases like X-Linked Adrenoleukodystrophy (X-ALD) and other metabolic disorders that have no available treatment. The company is developing small molecules to address these diseases and sees them all the way through the clinic.

Comment: Minoryx is preparing to launch a Phase II/III trial for their X-linked adrenoleukodystrophy drug, MIN-102, early this year. To support the effort, it just recruited 5 new members to its Scientific Advisory Board from renowned institutions across Europe and the US.
