"Our focus on new biology in immunology rapidly translated into development of protein therapeutics to treat essentially untreatable, grave immune disorders.  Our existing and new investors recognized the promise in a new class of proteins, Physiocrines, to treat many different types of disease with proteins made by the human body to orchestrate our immune system," said John Mendlein, Ph.D., CEO and executive chairman of aTyr Pharma. "Our emerging pipeline in immunomodulation represents an industry unique opportunity to therapeutically intervene via the basic mechanisms of innate and adaptive immunity in a way never enabled before. The aTyr team believes these mechanisms will benefit patients with grave outcomes in ways that antibody and small molecule approaches can not because Physiocrines evolved to naturally balance the immune system to resolve inflammation rather than being a designed inhibitor of pro-inflammatory pathways."
