"Today Biogen announced it has acquired ALG-801 (Phase 1a) and ALG-802 (preclinical) from AliveGen, Inc. ALG-801 (now known as BIIB110) and ALG-802 represent novel ways of targeting the myostatin pathway, which is one of the most thoroughly studied approaches for muscle enhancement.

BIIB110 and ALG-802 are recombinant proteins that act as ActRIIB ligand traps to inhibit myostatin pathway signaling, and their targeted mechanism of action may result in greater efficacy and improved safety compared to other myostatin approaches.

We initially plan to study BIIB110 and ALG-802 in multiple neuromuscular indications including spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis."
