Systemic sclerosis is a chronic autoimmune disease which may lead to devastating symptoms. Everyday tasks are hindered, and the patient’s quality of life is significantly decreased.
Gesynta Pharma’s drug candidates utilize a unique mechanism of action to reduce inflammation and pain, and increase healthy blood flow. We are currently developing three drug candidates. One of the compounds has reached clinical phase IIa stage. A second one will start clinical testings in 2022. Read more about our drug development projects.
Gesynta Pharma bases its R&D on research from the Karolinska Institutet. The most advanced drug candidate, GS-248, reduces inflammation and increases blood flow in the microvasculature, thereby aiming to provide improved treatments for several serious diseases. In an ongoing clinical phase IIa study, GS-248 is being evaluated for its potential to normalize vascular blood flow and reduce pain in patients with the autoimmune disease systemic sclerosis. Positive results from this study may lead to a rapid broadening of the development program towards additional indications, for example cardiovascular and rheumatic diseases.
