Om Toleranzia AB
Toleranzia AB (556877‐2866) is a Swedish public biotechnology company listed on Spotlight Stock Market. The company has developed a proprietary tolerance technology harnessing the power of the immune system for treatment of autoimmune diseases. The technology enables development of therapies that target the root cause of the disease – not just the symptoms, which is the mainstay of current treatment. The company´s main focus is directed towards the autoimmune neuromuscular disease myasthenia gravis (MG), which is an orphan disease with a high unmet medical need. The disease prevalence is approximately 200,000 people in the EU and the US together. The hallmark of MG is a deteriorated neuromuscular transmission of electrical impulses which leads to muscle weakness that can become very serious for the patient. For MG, Toleranzia develops the drug candidate TOL2, which has the potential to be the first long‐acting or curing treatment and which targets specifically the underlying cause of the disease. Toleranzia was founded by researchers at the University of Gothenburg. The company operates at the Biotech center in Gothenburg. For additional information, please visit: www.toleranzia.com.
