About the Company

LUCA Science is a preclinical stage biopharmaceutical company pioneering a new class of mitochondrial therapy to restore cellular bioenergetics in dysfunctional or damaged tissues and organs. Mitochondria are the power plants in our cells that produce energy for our bodies. LUCA Science will use its platform technology to manufacture, store and deliver innovative mitochondrial drugs to research and development of therapeutics for unmet medical needs in a wide range of diseases for which there have been no effective treatments.

Brief Description of main products or services

Mitochondria are the power plants in our cells that produce energy for our bodies. These intracellular organelles turn oxygen and nutrients into energy. Recent research has shown that supplying highly functional mitochondria to injured tissues helps to stimulate bioenergetics and restore normal function.

Ischemic Reperfusion Injuries in Myocardial Infarction and Stroke are the leading causes of death and disability around the world. The brain and heart tissues have high energy demands, reacting very sensitively to oxygen deficiency. This makes them most susceptible to reperfusion injury, when oxidative stress triggers cell necrosis due to mitochondrial damage, resulting in irreversible functional and tissue injury. Furthermore, dysfunction in mitochondria from genetic mutation, environmental stress, or aging is associated with a variety of diseases.

LUCA Science is developing an innovative platform of functional and storable mitochondria using proprietary technologies. LUCA’s Mitochondria get incorporated into host cells rapidly, improve ATP production in stressed cells and restore their normal functions. The use of mitochondria as a biopharmaceutical agent would be revolutionary for the treatment of many unmet medical needs.
