Replicon Health Oy has discovered and developed a New Active Substance (NAS) that can activate aerobic energy metabolism without an increase in oxidative stress. Especially skeletal muscles and the liver are activated, but all metabolically active organs / glands / tissues, like CNS, that contain specific natural enzyme loop benefit from the NAS. Endocrinological myokine generation further activates declining immune system in aging persons and mobilizes adipose tissues even in healthy exercising persons.

After years of successful pretesting, we have now shown in a peer reviewed human study that micromolar, well tolerated oral doses reduced low grade inflammation, blood lactate, CK and AST already in 4-days in 50–60-year-old participants, and further that these substantial improvements were sustained in 3-weeks. Hepatic activation in 3-weeks was seen by increased production of beneficial metabolites that typically increase after initiating exercise regimen. According to our latest study, solid longer-term effects are based on short-term exercise recovery mimicking effects after each dose of the NAS. Thus, even younger exercising persons may enhance post workout recovery.

Aging related cellular decline, like sarcopenia, immune senescence and neurodegeneration, fatty liver, obesity, and related indications are our primary target areas for aging persons. Our patented molecule formulation can uniquely influence the causes of many age-associated disorders, not just alleviate the symptoms. Well tolerated, natural mechanism of action is based on several whole-body enhancements of energy metabolism creating fast, strong, and sustained efficacy.

We aim to enter the markets with partners and carefully selected oral solutions. We have even developed commercially viable and sustainable mass production technology to produce the NAS.

21.9.2021 New scientific article was accepted for publication. The manuscript was submitted on 3rd of August.

3.7.2021 Two primary markers received in June 2021 (see below news) confirm earlier solid findings. Those results will be added to relevant scientific publication after the summer break. 

22.6.2021 Some important confirmatory biomarkers from our randomized clinical trial (12/2019) were finally received. Corona virus restrictions delayed them by more than 12 months.  

19.1.2021 Double Blinded Trial with Healthy Volunteers Registered into “Novel Energy Metabolic Signaling Molecule with Therapeutic Potential”

19.10.2020 Scientific ”breakthrough” article related to human study is ready for submission, first reviewer comments received.

5.6.2020 Replicon’s RH013001 compound initiates 5-week LCR and HCR rat study with a 0-control and a positive control. Effect on aerobic capacity, body weigh and organs, and selected blood markers will be investigated.

9.4.2020 Replicon Health is temporarily fully committed in developing a drug that reduces the burden of hospital intensive care units due to viral pandemics like COVID-19. Substance has already been successfully tested in healthy humans. Targeted therapy covers the therapy area that we selected based on clinical trial 10-11/2019 but is much wider, now it covers all organs.

18.3.2020 Current pandemic crises causes an amendment to the side indications that Replicon will investigate in early clinical trials. Confidential selection of the main indication remains the same (see below). Long way to go but planning has been already started.

15.1.2020 Combining earlier human tissue data with received new data from living humans pave way for the selection of our focus Block Buster -indication with unmet medical need. Only now we possess adequate set of data and certainty for this crucial selection. Based on our several independent and verified human results RH013001 will extremely likely be able to address selected unmet medical need and enter the market in roughly 5-7 years from now. Benefit for the patients will be significant.

Global annual sales of the focus Block Buster -indication is some USD 10 bn, currently mostly off-label sales. It is expected to increase rapidly when new drugs get approvals. According to some market forecasts sales will soar to USD 40 billion by the year 2028. Our plan is to out-license first indication to some bigger pharma company after phase 2 tests. 

8.1.2020 During early 2020 mRNA expressions at whole genome level will be analysed as well as certain pre-selected cytokines and other confirmatory markers. Already before these final analyses Replicon Health has gained enormously valuable clinical set of data from its patented therapeutic molecule. Benefits for the patients can be and cost savings for the health sector will be substantial.

12/2019 Supplementary results from the clinical trial confirm reduction of low-grade inflammation in apparently healthy older persons. Multiple shifts in energy metabolism enable surprisingly rapid adaptation of the immune system towards pathological and other threats.

11/2019 Preliminary results of the placebo controlled clinical study are very promising. Main therapeutic targets were reached, and the mechanism of action was re-confirmed.

09/2019 Recruiting of the study subjects has been completed. Experimental phase of the clinical study will start in October and last until November 2019.

07/2019  Major US patent granted for Replicon Health.
