Acceleron Pharma

Acceleron is a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company focused on the discovery, development and commercialization of innovative therapeutics to treat serious and rare diseases. 
The Company's research focuses on harnessing the power of the TGF-beta protein superfamily, the target-rich area of biology behind the body’s remarkable capacity for cellular growth and repair. Its approach to drug discovery is driven by deep scientific expertise—and an urgency to deliver effective treatments to thousands of patients who have few or no therapeutic options. The Company’s lead product candidate, luspatercept, is being evaluated in two Phase 3 studies in a global partnership with Celgene to treat chronic, sometimes debilitating anemias in myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) and beta-thalassemia. Acceleron is also advancing clinical programs in neuromuscular disorders and cancer, and preclinical research in fibrotic and other diseases.
