ARWR: Arrowhead Pharmaceuticals Analysis and Research Report

2018-06-18 - Asif

Business Arrowhead develops medicines that treat intractable diseases by silencing the genes that cause them. Using a broad portfolio of RNA chemistries and efficient modes of delivery, Arrowhead therapies trigger the RNA interference mechanism to induce rapid, deep and durable knockdown of target genes. RNA interference, or RNAi, is a mechanism present in living cells that inhibits the expression of a specific gene, thereby affecting the production of a specific protein. Deemed to be one of the most important recent discoveries in life science with the potential to transform medicine, the discoverers of RNAi were awarded a Nobel Prize in 2006 for their work. Arrowhead’s RNAi-based therapeutics leverage this natural pathway of gene silencing. In fiscal 2017, Arrowhead refocused its resources on therapeutics that exclusively utilize the company’s Targeted RNAi Molecule (TRiMTM) platform technology. Therapeutics built on the TRiMTM platform have demonstrated high levels of pha...

Overview Proteon Therapeutics is a late-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on the development of novel, first-in-class pharmaceuticals to address the needs of patients with renal and vascular disease. The company's product candidate, vonapanitase, is a recombinant human elastase that Proteon Therapeutics is developing to improve vascular access outcomes in patients with chronic kidney disease, or CKD, undergoing or planning for hemodialysis, a lifesaving treatment that cannot be conducted without a functioning vascular access. The company believe data from its completed Phase 2 and Phase 3 clinical trials of vonapanitase support that a one-time, local application of investigational vonapanitase during surgical creation of a radiocephalic fistula for hemodialysis may improve fistula use for hemodialysis and secondary patency (time to fistula abandonment), thereby improving patient outcomes and reducing the burden on patients and the healthcare system. Arteriovenous fistu...
