Developing selective
NLRP3 inflammasome inhibitors
for severe inflammatory diseases



Our drug discovery platform is focused on developing selective antagonists of the NLRP3 inflammasome, an inflammatory pathway critical to the development of a wide variety of diseases including acute lung injury, ARDS, Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia, systemic sepsis, acute liver and kidney injury, and  pneumonia.

Our lead candidate, AZM-152, is a small molecule, RHAMM-derived antagonist that blocks a key upstream priming signal involved in the aberrant activation of the NLRP3 inflammatory cascade.


Targeting severe inflammatory diseases with significant unmet needs

Initial indications target severe inflammatory pulmonary diseases with significant unmet needs.


For many inflammatory and fibrotic lung diseases, no effective preventative or therapeutic treatments exist.  With limited options for disease management, these severe and acute lung conditions exert a considerable burden on patients, families, and healthcare providers, including higher rates of mortality, longer lengths of stay in intensive care units, and life-long morbidities.
