Adrenomed AG is a privately held, clinical stage biopharmaceutical company focused on the development of pioneering therapies to rescue vascular integrity and save the lives of critically ill patients. Founded in 2009 by a management team with decades of experience in sepsis and a deep knowledge of diagnostics and drug development, Adrenomed translates the concept of personalized medicine into acute care.
Lead product candidate is a first-in-class antibody targeting the vasoprotective peptide Adrenomedullin, an essential regulator of vascular integrity. The antibody is currently under clinical evaluation in a biomarker-guided, proof-of-concept Phase II study in 300 patients with septic shock. Excellent safety and tolerability have been demonstrated in two Phase I trials.
Adrenomed at a glance:
|Field of Activity
||The company’s goal is to rescue vascular integrity, an underlying pathophysiology in life-threatening conditions associated with
increased vascular leakage, congestion and shock. The developed technology targets Adrenomedullin, a peptide hormone with protective effects on endothelial barrier integrity. Current lead indication is septic shock.
|Technology||Adrenomed’s lead product candidate is a first-in-class antibody targeting the peptide hormone Adrenomedullin. The humanized antibody binds to Adrenomedullin in the blood, thereby trapping and stabilizing the peptide. This results in increased Adrenomedullin concentrations within the circulation. Antibody-bound Adrenomedullin is still functional, allowing the hormone to positively affect the integrity of the endothelial barrier. The company also develops a unique personalized approach combining targeted therapy with diagnostics using Adrenomedullin as a biomarker to identify patients in need. A strong IP position and patents granted in all major markets
effectively secure Adrenomed’s business.
