"Designing Growth Strategies is in our DNA"
Cachexia is a disorder that causes extreme weight loss, muscle wasting and fat loss. Cachexia is also referred to as wasting syndrome. Cachexia is commonly identified in the patients with the last stage of cancer, human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), kidney disease and congestive heart failure (CHF). Cachexia is classified into pre-cachexia, cachexia, and refractory cachexia. Symptoms observed in patients with cachexia are reduced muscle strength, fatigue, anorexia, low fat-free mass index, high levels of inflammation, anemia, low levels of the protein and albumin.
There are no treatments available for the complete cure of the cachexia. However, several types of therapies and measures are taken to improve the symptoms. Currently available treatments for cachexia include providing appetite stimulant, medications to improve nausea and moods, drugs to decrease inflammation, diet, and exercise.
Research Institutes and pharmaceutical companies are focusing on studying and developing new methods for the treatment of cachexia. For instance; NGM120 is being studied by NGM Biopharmaceuticals, Inc., is currently in phase 1 of a clinical trial for the study to evaluate the safety, and tolerability of NGM120 in healthy adults suffering with cachexia. PINTA 745 is a drug which is being studied by Pinta Biotherapeutics, to evaluate its effect on end-stage renal disease and protein-energy wasting and is currently in phase 1 of clinical trial.
Currently, more than 50% of the pipeline candidates for cachexia are in phase 2 and phase 3 of clinical trials. Majority of the studies have been sponsored by research institutes, specialty centers & hospitals.
