Business Description

We are a dynamic biopharmaceutical company developing innovative drugs for metabolic diseases, currently focused on type 2 diabetes and non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH). Based in Lyon, France, Poxel was spun out in 2009 from Merck Serono, a global leader in the field of metabolic disorders at that time.

Poxel's innovative pipeline of first-in-class products with disease-modifying mechanisms of action offers the potential for safer and more effective therapies for metabolic diseases. Our lead compound, Imeglimin, is in Phase 3 and the Trials of IMeglimin for Efficacy and Safety (TIMES) program for type 2 diabetes in Japan is currently ongoing. The Phase 3 data results for the TIMES program are expected in 2019. PXL770 has completed Phase 1 and entered a Phase 2a proof-of-concept program for the treatment of NASH in April 2019. PXL065 (DRX-065) is in Phase 1 study for the treatment of NASH.
