About Non-IND Clinical Studies Axcella conducts Non-IND, IRB-approved clinical studies under food regulations to evaluate the safety and tolerability of its AXA candidates in human subjects, or effects on the normal structure or function of the body. Any potential studies intended to directly support drug development will be conducted under an Investigational New Drug application, or IND.

About Endogenous Metabolic Modulators Endogenous metabolic modulators (EMMs) which include amino acids, regulate fundamental pathways in health and disease. We believe that compositions leveraging EMMs hold significant promise, including their potential ability to simultaneously impact multiple biological pathways and history of safe use.

About Axcella™ Health Axcella is designing and developing AXA candidates, novel, proprietary compositions of EMMs with the goal of safely reprogramming metabolic dysregulation. We are focused on transforming the discovery and development of traditional drug and consumer health candidates from concept to clinical stage, by leveraging our deep understanding of human metabolism. We believe that our approach rapidly provides us with relevant information in an efficient manner. Our platform has already produced a pipeline of product candidates in programs targeting liver, muscle, and CNS. We were founded by Flagship Pioneering.
