About Aeolus Pharmaceuticals

Aeolus Pharmaceuticals is developing a new class of broad-spectrum, catalytic-antioxidant compounds that protect healthy tissue from the damaging effects of radiation. Its first compound, AEOL 10150, is being developed, with funding by the US Department of Health and Human Services, as a medical countermeasure against chemical and radiological weapons, where its initial target indications are as a protective agent against the effects of acute radiation syndrome and delayed effects of acute radiation exposure. Aeolus' strategy is to leverage the substantial investment in toxicology, manufacturing, and preclinical and clinical studies made by US Government agencies in AEOL 10150, including the contract with BARDA valued, with options, at up to $118.4 million, to efficiently develop the compound for use in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis and oncology.

About AEOL 10150

AEOL 10150 is a broad-spectrum catalytic antioxidant specifically designed to neutralize reactive oxygen and nitrogen species. The neutralization of these species reduces oxidative stress, inflammation, and subsequent tissue damage-signaling cascades resulting from radiation exposure. AEOL 10150 has performed well in preclinical and non-clinical studies, demonstrating statistically significant survival benefit in acute radiation-induced lung injury models, and was well-tolerated in two human clinical trials. The Company believes it could have a profound beneficial impact on people exposed to high-doses of radiation from a nuclear event or in the course of treatment for cancer. AEOL 10150 has been awarded Orphan Drug status by the US FDA for the treatment of Lung-ARS and for Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis.
