About Lupus (Systemic Lupus Erythematosus / SLE)

 

Lupus is a chronic inflammatory disease which is thought to affect some 16 million individuals worldwide. The current standard of care still consists of steroid and anti-malarial therapies which many have side-effects and poor response in many patients. Recently more targeted monoclonal therapies are GlaxoSmithKline's Benlysta and more recently, AstraZeneca's Saphnelo. There still exists a high unmet medical need for a drug that has a strong efficacy and safety profile.

 

About CIDP (Chronic Idiopathic Demyelinating Polyneuropathy)

 

CIDP is a rare acquired autoimmune disorder of peripheral nerves which is thought to affect some 90 thousand individuals across US/Europe.  It is a rare neurological disorder characterized by progressive weakness and impaired sensory function in the legs and arms. CIDP related disability may be substantial. In addition to the physical burdens imposed by the disease, those affected by CIDP also frequently experience economic and emotional hardship and are often burdened not only by the disease but also by the immunotherapies used to treat the disease. Other than intravenous (IVIG) and subcutaneous immunoglobulin (SCIG), corticosteroids and plasma exchange are the only other treatment options. There is still a huge unmet need for more efficacious drugs that are safer, and which affect underlying disease progression.
