Disease Information

About Acute Hepatic Porphyria

Download Fact Sheet362.67 KB (Format: PDF)

Acute hepatic porphyria (AHP) refers to a family of rare, genetic diseases characterized by potentially life-threatening attacks and, for some patients, chronic debilitating symptoms that negatively impact daily functioning and quality of life. AHP comprises 4 subtypes, each resulting from a genetic defect leading to deficiency in one of the enzymes of the heme biosynthesis pathway in the liver: acute intermittent porphyria, hereditary coproporphyria, variegate porphyria, and ALAD-deficiency porphyria.

About Hereditary ATTR Amyloidosis

Download Fact Sheet103.37 KB (Format: PDF)

Hereditary transthyretin-mediated (hATTR) amyloidosis is a rapidly progressive and life-threatening disease that is caused by a mutation in the transthyretin (TTR) gene. TTR protein is produced primarily in the liver and is normally a carrier of vitamin A. The mutation results in the accumulation of amyloid deposits in multiple organs of the body, including the nerves, heart, and gastrointestinal tract. The condition can have a debilitating impact on a patient’s life and may lead to premature death within 4.7 years following diagnosis.

About Primary Hyperoxaluria Type 1

Download Fact Sheet559.21 KB (Format: PDF)

Primary hyperoxaluria (PH) constitutes a group of rare inherited disorders of the liver characterized by the overproduction of oxalate, an end-product of metabolism. There are 3 types of PH: type 1 (PH1), type 2 (PH2), and type 3 (PH3). PH1 is the most common and severe form, accounting for 70% to 80% of all cases. PH1 affects approximately 4 individuals per million in the United States and Europe, with an estimated 1,300 to 2,100 diagnosed cases. In some regions, such as the Middle East and North Africa, the genetic prevalence of PH1 is higher.

About Hypertension

Download Fact Sheet125.17 KB (Format: PDF)

Hypertension, also known as high blood pressure, is a complex multifactorial disease clinically defined by most major guidelines as a systolic blood pressure (SBP) of above 140 mm Hg or a diastolic blood pressure (DBP) greater than 90 mm Hg, though some guidelines have a lower threshold of a SBP above 130 mm Hg or a DBP greater than 80 mm Hg. More than one billion people worldwide live with hypertension, and fewer than 20 percent of those affected have it under control.

Products and Pipeline

Our pipeline of investigational RNAi therapeutics is focused on diseases with high unmet medical need that fall under 4 Strategic Therapeutic Areas (STArs): genetic diseases, cardio-metabolic diseases, hepatic infectious diseases, and central nervous system (CNS) & ocular diseases. We have multiple programs in late-stage and early-stage clinical development.
