REGENXBIO is a leading biotechnology company focused on the development, commercialization and licensing of recombinant adeno-associated virus (AAV) gene therapy. Our NAV Technology Platform, a proprietary AAV gene delivery platform, consists of exclusive rights to more than 100 novel AAV vectors, including AAV7, AAV8, AAV9 and AAVrh10. Our mission is to transform the lives of patients suffering from severe diseases with significant unmet medical needs by developing and commercializing in vivo gene therapy products based on our NAV Technology Platform. We seek to accomplish this mission through a combination of our internal development efforts and the efforts of our third-party licensees (NAV Technology Licensees).
Our most advanced internally developed candidates include programs for the treatment of two severe and rare genetic diseases, homozygous familial hypercholesterolemia (HoFH) and Mucopolysaccharidosis Type I (MPS I). In addition, we have a preclinical program for wet age-related macular degeneration (wet AMD) as well as two additional research programs. REGENXBIO plans to build internal gene therapy franchises in the metabolic, neurodegenerative and retinal therapeutic areas, and develop multiple product candidates in these and other areas.
Our management team includes leaders who are experienced in building and operating innovative healthcare ventures and have expert knowledge in the development of AAV gene therapy.
