About the company
Toleranzia AB (556877-2866) has developed a platform technology for treatment of autoimmune diseases. The company´s main project is directed towards an autoimmune neuromuscular disease, myasthenia gravis, with a significant need for an effective treatment and an extensive market potential, for which Toleranzia has been granted Orphan Drug Designation in both EU and US. The platform technology enables development of therapies that target the root cause of the disease – not just the symptoms, which is the mainstay of current treatment. In addition to myasthenia gravis, the platform technology has been evaluated in three further disease indications – rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis and type 1 diabetes, where positive treatment effects have been obtained in disease-relevant animal models. Toleranzia was founded by researchers at the University of Gothenburg. The company has operations at the Biotech center in Gothenburg. Further reading at: www.toleranzia.com.
