About Aileron Therapeutics
Aileron Therapeutics is creating the first new class of drugs in 20 years and is uniquely positioned to capitalize on key biological insights to attack complex diseases such as cancer, endocrine metabolic conditions and inflammation. By harnessing one of the most common, but elusive, structures in nature - the alpha helical peptide, we believe we can dramatically improve the treatment of these diseases and positively impact the lives of millions of patients around the globe. Aileron plans to initiate clinical development of its first Stapled Peptide drug in early 2013 with its wholly owned endocrine and metabolic disease program, ALRN-5281.
