Company

Business description: REGiMMUNE is a biotechnology company focused on the discovery, development and commercialization of immune regulatory therapeutics to treat life-threatening and debilitating conditions, including allergies, autoimmune diseases and inflammatory disorders. In addition to its potential for GvHD, MultiVax is a therapeutic candidate for autoimmune diseases such as Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and Systemic Lupus, in which down-regulation of and/or dysfunction of regulatory T-cells lead to serious up-regulation of immunity against the auto-antigen. reVax is the company’s second proprietary technology platform, which works by modulating the immune system by enhancing antigen-specific immune regulatory cells. This technique is expected to be useful in conditions such as Ragweed Allergy, Rheumatoid Arthritis and MS, where control of an abnormal immune response is desirable. reVax is being utilized to advance several compounds through clinical development and eventual commercialization of a broad range of products for REGiMMUNE and its partners. The company is headquartered in Tokyo, Japan and has a U.S. subsidiary in Mountain View, California.
