Transforming the Treatment of Major Neuro­degene­rative Diseases of the Eye and Brain


Galimedix is a Phase 2 clinical-stage company developing novel oral and topical neuroprotective therapies with the potential to revolutionize the treatment of serious eye and brain diseases. Founded by a seasoned and highly dedicated team of bio-entrepreneurs, pharma executives and scientists, Galimedix’s groundbreaking small molecules offer the hope of changing the course of disease where amyloid beta plays a role, such as in dry AMD, glaucoma and Alzheimer’s disease: Galimedix’s initial areas of focus.

Our amyloid beta-targeting approach is strongly supported by our license deal with a major ophthalmology player, as well as recent successes in the field of Alzheimer’s disease. The team’s extensive internal expertise in neurodegenerative diseases is complemented by a network of renowned international key opinion leaders.

Galimedix’s approach blocks a key step in the neurodegenerative process with a highly specific, well tolerated small molecule without impacting normal neuronal function. This key step – the formation of toxic oligomers and protofibrils of amyloid beta (Aβ) – has emerged as a central cause of neurodegeneration. This understanding is supported by recent approvals and by positive late-stage clinical results with Aβ-targeting therapies for Alzheimer’s disease, as well as numerous publications about the role of Aβ in dry AMD and glaucoma.

Compelling pre-clinical data support the potential of Galimedix’s product candidates to slow or stop neurodegeneration and also restore lost neuronal function. We are entering Phase 2 proof-of-concept studies in dry AMD with our lead program, topical GAL-101, with strong support from partner, Théa Open Innovation (TOI). Clinical studies in other indications are planned.

Current investors
