Hansa Biopharma is leveraging its proprietary enzyme technology platform to enable immunomodulatory treatments for transplants, rare immunoglobulin G (IgG)-mediated autoimmune conditions, gene therapy and cancer.
The Company’s lead product candidate, imlifidase, is an antibody-cleaving enzyme being developed to enable kidney transplantation in highly sensitized patients and may be further developed for use in other organ and tissue transplantation and acute autoimmune indications. The European Commission has conditionally approved Idefirix (imlifidase) for the desensitization treatment of highly sensitized adult kidney transplant patients with a positive crossmatch against an available deceased donor.
This conditional approval was also granted by the MHRA in January 2021.
Hansa’s research and development program is also advancing the Company’s enzyme technology to develop the next generation of IgG-cleaving enzymes with potentially lower immunogenicity, suitable for repeat dosing in relapsing autoimmune diseases and oncology. Hansa Biopharma is based in Lund, Sweden and also has operations in other European countries and in the U.S.
