Arthrogen is an Amsterdam based biopharmaceutical company developing local gene therapy for inflammatory diseases, using viral mediated gene transfer.
The therapeutic vectors are derived from natural occurring adeno-associated viruses (AAV) that are not pathogenic in humans.
The first target indication is in the field of rheumatic diseases. Arthrogen has completed GMP production of its lead product and is preparing the start of the first clinical trial.
It is Arthrogen’s vision that new gene therapies will contribute to the improvement of health of patients and to the reduction of healthcare cost.
