ASP0367 is being investigated to determine whether it can turn on the PPAR delta (δ) pathway. The PPAR–δ pathway regulates mitochondria by turning on different genes in the cell. When the pathway is on, the mitochondria use fatty acids more often and more mitochondria are made. Using more fatty acids for energy results in increased energy production. ASP0367 is an oral investigational drug and is not currently approved by any regulatory bodies.
A preclinical study was conducted in 2017 and phase 1 study for healthy volunteers was completed in 2018. A Phase 1b study is now actively recruiting.
