Altemia™ Our Solution for Sickle Cell Anemia

ALTEMIA is our proprietary product candidate that is being developed for the treatment of sickle cell anemia. ALTEMIA consists of a complex proprietary mixture of fatty acid ethyl esters formulated using Advanced Lipid Technologies® (ALT®) specifically to address the treatment of SCA. The drug is encapsulated in a small soft gelatin capsule and intended to be taken once daily. As early as 1991, it was suggested that certain fatty acids decrease the destruction of red blood cells in mammals. It also has been found that sickle cell patients have abnormal blood fatty acids in red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets and plasma. These findings led to the hypothesis that certain fatty acids might be useful in the treatment of SCA. In 2001, a small human clinical trial showed that certain fatty acids could reduce pain episodes in sickle cell patients, perhaps by reducing activity that leads to obstructive blood clotting. Other studies have shown that certain fatty acids can increase hemoglobin levels and reduce pain episodes, VOC episodes, anemia, organ damage and other disease complications in sickle cell patients.
