About Herantis Pharma Plc
Herantis focuses on disease modifying therapies for debilitating neurodegenerative diseases by restoring the neuronal protective mechanism of proteostasis, a key system in neurodegenerative disease. Proteostasis regulates proteins within the body and influences the fate of every protein from synthesis to degradation. Its failure results in a vicious cycle of pathological accumulation of protein aggregates, neuroinflammation and various forms of cellular stress that is widely implicated with the development of many neurodegenerative diseases including Parkinson’s Disease, Alzheimer’s and other diseases. CDNF is a protein that occurs naturally in the body whose normal role is to protect neurons by balancing and supporting proteostasis, thereby preventing and counteracting disease generating mechanisms. Herantis is taking this natural ability and harnessing it as a treatment for neurodegenerative disease. CDNF – a biological protein – is Herantis’ lead program and a clinical stage asset; and xCDNF – a synthetic peptide version of CDNF – is Herantis’ follow-on program. Both CDNF and xCDNF have, via their multimodal mechanism of action, the potential improves neuronal survival and to stop the progression of Parkinson’s and other neurodegenerative disease and have a significant therapeutic impact on the lives of patients.
