The Promise of Read-Through >1,800 Genetic diseases involve nonsense mutations In every genetic disease a subset of patients have nonsense mutations that impair the production of essential proteins Translational read through is directed at restoring the production of full length proteins by overcoming the premature stop codon and nonsense mediated decay Cystic Fibrosis Cystinosis MPS I Syndrome Rett Syndrome Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy Built upon a molecular scaffold with a defined ribosomal effect Active at all three premature stop codons Potential to achieve clinically meaningful restoration of functional essential protein Advances in our understanding of translational read-through has enabled design of novel small molecules

Most prevalent genetic disease in the western world CF is the most common fatal inherited disease in Caucasians Caused by mutations in transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) Chloride channel Mutations lead to dysregulation in multiple organ systems Current standard of care based on molecular chaperones for trafficking and conformation Target Class II – Class V CFTR Defects No currently approved drugs for Class I CFTR Defects Currently available data for our investigational drug, ELX-02, suggests the potential for: Active for both homozygous and heterozygous Class I nonsense mutations Increase translational read-through Improve chloride currents in HBEs and organoids Demonstrate synergy with correctors and potentiators in heterozygous population Cystic Fibrosis Development Program Zoltan Bozoky et al.

Slide 9

Premature stop codons or nonsense mutations are Class I Estimated that 22% of patients have Class I mutations on one or both CFTR alleles Approximately 13% of the CF patients carry a nonsense mutation on one or both CFTR alleles Eloxx’s development path for read-through therapeutics will be focused on the patient subset with diagnosed nonsense mutations Cystic Fibrosis: CFTR Molecular Defect Novel personalized therapies for cystic fibrosis: Treating the basic defect in all patients.

ELX-02 Cystic Fibrosis Next Steps Jan 2018 Pre-CTA (Belgium) Regulatory Meeting On track for mid-2018 CTA (Belgium) Submission Targeting 4Q 2018 for FPFV Phase 2 Study


Slide 14

Ultra-rare lysosomal storage disease Caused by mutations in cystinosin (CTNS) Cysteine efflux channel Cystine lysosomal accumulation causes manifestations of disease The current standard of care, Cysteamine acts within the lysosome to convert cystine into forms which can exit the lysosome via cysteine transport pathways. W138X most common nonsense mutation is estimated to represent 1/3 of patient population Currently available data on our investigational drug candidate, ELX-02, suggest the potential to: Increase translational read-through Reduce NMD Restore CTNS mRNA to near normal levels Lower cystine accumulation in vitro and in vivo Cystinosis Development Program
