Mitochondrial Disease Therapeutic Pipeline

All new treatments or therapeutics proceed through a defined development path. This path begins with preclinical development and progresses through clinical trials all the way to FDA-approval before ending in patients’ hands.

Several treatments for mitochondrial diseases are already making their way along this path. Now, mito patients and their families will be able to see the treatment approaches being developed, where they are in the development pipeline, and what mitochondrial diseases they target.

Conditions in the Pipeline

  • Barth Syndrome
  • KSS-CPEO
  • Leigh Syndrome
  • LHON
  • MELAS
  • MERRF
  • Primary Mitochondrial Myopathies (PMM)
  • MIDD
  • Pearson Syndrome
  • Pyruvate Dehydrogenase Complex Deficiency (PDCD)
  • Seizures
  • TK2 Deficiency

Pre-Clinical Development

Non-human lab testing

Phase I

Human safety trial

Phase II

Preliminary human efficacy trial

Phase III

Definitive human safety & efficacy trial

Regulatory Approval

New drug approved & available to patients
Phase I/II tests the safety, side effects, and best dose of a new treatment.
Phase II/III tests how well a new treatment works and compares the new treatment with a standard treatment.
