Description of Business
We are a late-stage clinical biopharmaceutical company that is focused on the development and potential commercialization of imetelstat, an innovative therapeutic for hematologic myeloid malignancies. We have global rights to imetelstat, a first-in-class telomerase inhibitor, which was discovered and developed at Geron. We believe targeting telomerase has the potential to inhibit the uncontrolled proliferation of malignant progenitor cells in hematologic myeloid malignancies to reduce dysfunctional blood cell production and enable recovery of normal blood cell production. Data reported from our Phase 2/3 clinical trial in lower risk myelodysplastic syndromes, or MDS, indicate imetelstat may induce meaningful and durable transfusion independence and increases in hemoglobin levels, suggesting potential recovery of normal blood cells occurring in the bone marrow, or hematopoiesis.
