Trojan Horse Platform against Neurodegenerative Diseases

Disease-modifying first in class small molecules targeting multiple complementary mechanisms upstream neurodegenerative signaling cascade

What We Do

Multi-targeted Small Molecules

Targeting multiple pathways to counter brain inflammation, oxidative stress, and the aggregation of selected proteins 


Versatile platform optimized to target diverse diseases including ALS, Frontotemporal Dementia, Traumatic Brain Injury, Parkinson's, and Alzheimer's

Novel Chemistry, Validated Agents

First generation
New Chemical Entities (NCEs) brings together therapeutic agents subjects of decades of research by our Academic

Intelligent Drug Discovery

Next generation NCEs drug discovery utilizes a machine learning trained model to screen through the millions of permutations that our platform allows

Innovative approach to neurodegeneration

Target multiple complementary mechanisms with a single drug. 

First in class NCEs optimized to target multiple pathways upstream neurodegenerative cascade: misfolded protein disaggregation, brain inflammation and oxidative stress.


Our Trojan Horse

Synergistic activity in rationally designed single NCEs combining validated naturally occurring ligands

Our patent pending technology harnesses the full potential of Glutathione as a therapeutic linker. Synthesized with Fatty Acids and other Payloads, our NCEs synergistically target multiple pathways   


Flexible platform

We optimize candidates targeting different pathways: data driven indication strategy


"Ilios is the ancient name of Troy. 

We are bringing to life a Trojan Horse for the brain to provide an innovative alternative to complex drug discovery by bringing together three components validated on known biological pathways of neurodegenerative diseases."

Luca Giani, Co-founder and CEO, Ilios Tx
