NEW YORK, July 28, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Applied Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq: APLT), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company
developing a pipeline of novel drug candidates against validated molecular targets in indications of high unmet medical need, today announced its sponsorship and presentations at the 2022 Galactosemia Foundation Conference being held July 28-30 in Orlando, Florida.
“We are proud to be a gold sponsor of the Galactosemia Foundation Conference, and to sponsor the Galactosemia Foundation’s new website and educational resources to help families navigate the challenges of living with Galactosemia,” said Shoshana Shendelman, PhD, CEO, Founder and Chair of the Board of Applied Therapeutics. “The Galactosemia Conference is a unique event, bringing together patients, families, and researchers to work together towards a shared goal of improving the lives of patients with Galactosemia.”
“Galactosemia is a serious progressive disease that significantly impacts quality of life. Long-term complications are caused by galactitol, a toxic metabolite of galactose,” said Riccardo Perfetti, MD, PhD, Chief Medical Officer of Applied Therapeutics. “We look forward to providing the community with an update on our research at the conference, and express our deep appreciation to the patients, families and researchers who have made this work possible.”
“Applied Therapeutics is a strong partner to the Galactosemia community and the Galactosemia Foundation. We are excited to launch our new website and resources at the Galactosemia Conference, which would not have been possible without the support of Applied Therapeutics,” said Nicole Casale, President of the Galactosemia Foundation.

AT-007 is a central nervous system (CNS) penetrant Aldose Reductase inhibitor (ARI) in development for the treatment of several rare neurological diseases, including Galactosemia, SORD Deficiency, and PMM2-CDG. In clinical trials, AT-007 significantly reduced plasma galactitol levels vs. placebo in adults and children with Galactosemia. AT-007 is currently being studied in a Phase 3 clinical outcomes trial (ACTION-Galactosemia Kids) in children ages 2-17 with Galactosemia, as well as a long-term open-label study in adults with Galactosemia. In a pilot study, AT-007 significantly reduced blood sorbitol levels in adults with SORD Deficiency. AT-007 is currently being studied in a Phase 3 trial (INSPIRE) investigating biomarker efficacy, clinical outcomes, and significantly reduced blood sorbitol levels in adults with SORD Deficiency. AT-007 has received both Orphan Drug and Pediatric Rare Disease designations from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of Galactosemia and PMM2-CDG, and Fast Track designation for Galactosemia.
Applied Therapeutics is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company developing a pipeline of novel drug candidates against validated molecular targets in indications of high unmet medical need. The Company’s lead drug candidate, AT-007, is a novel central nervous system penetrant Aldose Reductase Inhibitor (ARI) for the treatment of CNS rare metabolic diseases, including Galactosemia, SORD Deficiency, and PMM2-CDG. The Company is also developing AT-001, a novel potent ARI, for the treatment of Diabetic Cardiomyopathy, or DbCM, a fatal fibrosis of the heart. The preclinical pipeline also includes AT-003, an ARI designed to cross through the back of the eye when dosed orally, for the treatment of Diabetic retinopathy, as well as novel dual PI3k inhibitors in preclinical development for orphan oncology indications.
