Protalix BioTherapeutics Hosting Key Opinion Leader Meeting on PRX‑102 Drug Candidate for the Treatment of Fabry Disease
The meeting will feature a presentation from KOL David G. Warnock, M.D.,
The Company's management team will provide an update on PRX‑102. PRX‑102 is an investigational, plant cell culture-expressed, and chemically modified stabilized version of, the recombinant alpha-Galactosidase-A enzyme. Protein sub-units are covalently bound via chemical cross-linking using short PEG moieties, resulting in a molecule with unique pharmacokinetic parameters. In clinical studies, PRX‑102 has been observed to have a circulatory half-life of approximately 80 hours. The Company designed pegunigalsidase alfa to potentially address the continued unmet clinical need in Fabry patients of continuous disease progression, infusion reactions and immunogenicity.
This event is intended for institutional investors, sell-side analysts and business development professionals only. Please RSVP in advance if you plan to attend, as space is limited. Members of the media and the public are invited to participate via the live webcast.
