About Acer Therapeutics
Acer, headquartered in Newton, MA, is a pharmaceutical company focused on the
acquisition, development and commercialization of therapies for patients with serious
rare and ultra-rare diseases with critical unmet medical need. Acer’s late-stage clinical
pipeline includes two candidates for severe genetic disorders for which there are few or
no FDA-approved treatments: EDSIVO™ (celiprolol) for vEDS, and ACER-001 (a fully tastemasked,
immediate release formulation of sodium phenylbutyrate) for urea cycle
disorders (UCD) and Maple Syrup Urine Disease (MSUD). There are no FDA-approved
drugs for vEDS and MSUD and limited options for UCD, which collectively impact more
than 4,000 patients in the United States. Acer’s product candidates have clinical proof-ofconcept
and mechanistic differentiation, and Acer intends to seek approval for them in
the U.S. by using the regulatory pathway established under section 505(b)(2) of the
Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act, or FFDCA, that allows an applicant to rely for
approval at least in part on third-party data, which is expected to expedite the
preparation, submission, and potential approval of a marketing application.
