Specific Active ImmunoTherapy (SAIT)
Adherence to current therapies can be poor due to complex dosing regimens, and the treatment of many neurodegenerative diseases is stillinadequate. 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 neurodegenerative 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 neurodegenerative diseases, and establishing novel SAIT treatments against 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 entering Phase II clinical trials.
We are moving forward.
