Aldeyra Therapeutics is a biotechnology company dedicated to developing innovative treatments for patients suffering from immune-mediated illnesses.

The company is currently in the testing phase of its research and development.

These treatments might make patients’ lives a little bit easier overall, which is a good thing. Reproxalap and ADX-629, two of the company’s lead compounds, are aimed at reactive aldehyde species (RASP), which are increased in ocular and systemic inflammatory illnesses.

The RASP is the patients the company’s drugs intend to treat. RASP is to blame for increased cytokine production because they activate various inflammatory factors, such as NF-B, inflammasomes, and Scavenger Receptor A.

This causes RASP to be responsible for increased cytokine production.
