Catalyst Biosciences Participating in a Fireside Chat with LifeSci Capital
Catalyst Biosciences’ management team will provide an overview of the Company’s recently introduced complement programs as well as ongoing developments with CB 2782, a novel engineered C3 degrader partnered with Biogen and marzeptacog alfa (activated) (MarzAA), the company’s late-stage hemostasis asset.
Catalyst is a research and clinical development biopharmaceutical company focused on addressing unmet medical needs in rare disorders of the complement and coagulation systems. Our protease engineering platform has generated two late-stage clinical programs, including MarzAA, a subcutaneously (SQ) administered next-generation engineered coagulation Factor VIIa (FVIIa) for the treatment of episodic bleeding in subjects with rare bleeding disorders. Our complement pipeline includes a pre-clinical program partnered with Biogen for dry age-related macular degeneration, an improved complement factor I protease for SQ prophylaxis in patients with CFI deficiency and C4b-degraders designed to target disorders of the classical complement pathway as well as other complement programs in development.
