Alizé Pharma is a group of companies specialized in the development of innovative biopharmaceutical drugs, proteins and peptides for the treatment of metabolic diseases and rare diseases. The group is managed by a team of drug development experts and by a board of directors with a breadth of international experience. Its business strategy is to advance programs based on medical innovation to the clinical stage and establish partnerships with pharmaceutical companies to secure both short and long-term revenue streams. Since its creation the group has raised over €15 million from private and institutional investors and has acquired and implemented three programs in three companies:

• Alizé Pharma SAS is developing AZP-531, a stabilized analog of unacylated ghrelin, a physiological gastrointestinal peptide. This program is in Phase II clinical development for the treatment of Prader-Willi syndrome and has completed Phase I for type 2 diabetes.

• Prior to its acquisition by a subsidiary of Jazz Pharmaceuticals plc in March 2016, Alizé Pharma II SAS was focused on the development of pegcrisantaspase (ASPAREC®), a new pegylated recombinant Lasparaginase in onco-hematological rare diseases.

• Alizé Pharma III SAS has acquired exclusive worldwide rights on a family of new peptides with bone anabolic properties, to be developed in osteoporosis and other bone diseases. This I-HBD1 program is at the lead optimization stage.
