Targazyme, Inc. Key Developments

Targazyme Inc. Receives Orphan Drug Designation to TZ101 for Use with Regulatory T Cells to Prevent & Reduce the Severity of Graft Versus Host Disease in Patients Eligible for Hematologic Stem Cell Transplantation

GVHD is a serious, life-threating complication of stem cell transplantation. Orphan drug status confirms the importance of Targazyme's novel treatment approach to prevent and reduce the incidence and severity of GVHD in patients with blood cancers where stem cell transplant is prescribed. TZ101 could potentially transform hematopoietic stem cell transplantation by reducing patient morbidity and mortality from GVHD, which occurs in a large percentage of these patients and is very difficult to manage clinically.
