aTyr Pharma Inc is engaged in the discovery and clinical development of medicines for patients suffering from severe, rare diseases using its knowledge of Physiocrine biology, a newly discovered set of physiological modulators.

aTyr Pharma Inc was incorporated in the state of Delaware on September 8, 2005. The Company is engaged in the discovery and clinical development of medicines for patients suffering from severe, rare diseases using its knowledge of Physiocrine biology, a newly discovered set of physiological modulators. It has discovered approximately 300 Physiocrines, a class of naturally occurring human proteins that it promotes homeostasis, a fundamental process of restoring stressed or diseased tissue to a healthier state. The Company is currently conducting a multi-national exploratory Phase 1b/2 clinical trial of Resolaris in adult patients with FSHD in the European Union. This randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial is designed to evaluate the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics and immunogenicity of multiple intravenous doses of Resolaris in adults with FSHD. Its initial therapeutic efforts target severe, rare disease indications in which patients suffer from the immune-related consequences of their genetic disease. It contracts with third parties for the manufacturing and testing of its product candidates for preclinical studies and clinical trials. It does not own or operate manufacturing facilities for the production of clinical quantities of its product candidates. Government authorities in the United States, including federal, state, and local authorities, and in other countries, extensively regulate, among other things, the manufacturing, research and clinical development, marketing, labeling and packaging, storage, distribution, post-approval monitoring and reporting, advertising and promotion, pricing, and export and import of pharmaceutical and biological products, such as those it is developing.
