Specific Active ImmunoTherapy (SAIT)
Adherence to current therapies can be poor due to complex dosing regimens, and the treatment of many chronic diseases is still inadequate. Using our unique AFFITOME technology, we are developing Specific Active ImmunoTherapy (SAIT), which stimulates the body to find and fight proteins central to the development and progression of chronic diseases. SAIT induces a long‑lasting target-specific immune response, which may be generated by far less frequent dosing regimens (e.g., once or twice a year)
SAIT is an exciting prospect.
We focus on identifying proteins that are involved in the development and progression of chronic human diseases, and establishing novel SAIT treatments against potentially pathogenic forms of these proteins using our unique AFFITOME technology. SAIT has successfully demonstrated proof of concept in both preclinical and clinical studies. Our most advanced product candidates are ready to enter Phase II clinical trials.
We are moving forward.
