About M254, Hypersialylated Immunoglobulin G
M254 is a hypersialylated human immunoglobulin G (hsIgG), engineered with significantly enhanced tetra-sialylation. In preclinical studies of ITP and other inflammatory diseases, M254 has shown an increase in potency of up to ten times that of conventional IVIg. IVIg has been used for more than 30 years for the treatment of a variety of acute and chronic autoimmune and systemic inflammatory diseases. We believe this product has the potential to be developed as a high-potency alternative to IVIg.
Momenta Pharmaceuticals is a biotechnology company with a validated innovative scientific platform focused on discovering and developing novel therapeutics to treat rare, immune-mediated diseases and advancing its late stage biosimilar portfolio. The company is headquartered in Cambridge, MA.
