Edimer: Gland idea
Monday, August 27, 2012
Unlike enzyme replacement therapies that are taken chronically
for life, Edimer
Pharmaceuticals Inc. hopes a single course of its EDI200 given either
before or soon after birth will permanently correct a rare developmental
disorder. The fusion protein entered human testing this year and the company
hopes to achieve clinical proof of concept in mid-2014.
ectodermal dysplasia (XLHED) is a developmental disorder caused by the absence
of ectodysplasin A, a protein required for proper formation of glandular
structures in the skin.
