Clinical Trials & Research

CoA Therapeutics was founded in 2018 with the aim of developing novel therapies for difficult to treat and rare genetic disorders by harnessing advances in understanding of the CoA pathway.

Overview

Coenzyme A (CoA) plays a crucial role in energy metabolism and is implicated in a large number of disorders, from ultra-rare diseases like pantothenate kinase-associated neurodegeneration, or PKAN, and organic acidurias (OAs), to common diseases such as Type 2 diabetes.

CoA and its related derivatives, which are called thioesters, are used by approximately 4% of cellular enzymes. CoA thioesters regulate the crossroads of energy metabolism. They are involved in some of the most important pathways responsible for breaking down metabolites and building key molecules necessary for healthy physiology. These pathways include the Krebs cycle, fatty acid synthesis and degradation, ketogenesis and steroidogenesis.
