Krabbe Disease Understanding
Krabbe Disease: Overview
Krabbe disease is a rare leukodystrophy affecting about 1 in 100,000 people in the U.S. and is inherited in an autosomal recessive manner. Krabbe disease is caused by loss-of-function mutations in the galactosylceramidase (GALC) gene, a lysosomal enzyme responsible for the breakdown of certain types of lipids such as psychosine. Without functional GALC, psychosine accumulates to toxic levels in cells. The psychosine toxicity is most severe in the protective cells surrounding the nerves in the brain and throughout the body (peripheral nervous system), eventually leading to the death of these cells. The progressive neuronal cell death manifest over the course of the disease: initially presenting as mental and physical delays in development, muscle weakness and irritability and advancing rapidly to vision and hearing loss and difficulty swallowing and breathing. Early onset, “Early Infantile”, Krabbe cases usually results in death by age 2, while later onset “Late Infantile” cases have a more variable course of progressive decline. There is currently no cure for either form of Krabbe disease.
""Krabbe Disease - Pipeline Insight, 2021"" report by DelveInsight outlays comprehensive insights of present scenario and growth prospects across the indication. A detailed picture of the Krabbe Disease pipeline landscape is provided which includes the disease overview and Krabbe Disease treatment guidelines. The assessment part of the report embraces, in depth Krabbe Disease commercial assessment and clinical assessment of the pipeline products under development. In the report, detailed description of the drug is given which includes mechanism of action of the drug, clinical studies, NDA approvals (if any), and product development activities comprising the technology, Krabbe Disease collaborations, licensing, mergers and acquisition, funding, designations and other product related details.
• The companies and academics are working to assess challenges and seek opportunities that could influence Krabbe Disease R&D. The therapies under development are focused on novel approaches to treat/improve Krabbe Disease.
Krabbe Disease Emerging Drugs Chapters
This segment of the Krabbe Disease report encloses its detailed analysis of various drugs in different stages of clinical development, including phase II, I, preclinical and Discovery. It also helps to understand clinical trial details, expressive pharmacological action, agreements and collaborations, and the latest news and press releases.
Krabbe Disease Emerging Drugs
• FBX-101: Forge Biologics
FBX-101 utilizes adeno-associated viral (AAV) gene therapy after hematopoietic stem cell transplant (HSCT) to deliver a functioning copy of the GALC gene, which encodes an enzyme needed to prevent the buildup of psychosine in myelinated cells of both the central and peripheral nervous system. FBX-101 has been shown to functionally correct the central and peripheral myelination deficits, significantly improve the behavioral impairments associated with Krabbe disease in animal models, and drastically improve the lifespan of treated animal models of the disease. The use of transplant and intravenous AAV gene therapy infusion has the potential to overcome some of the immunological safety challenges of traditional AAV gene therapies. FBX-101, for the treatment of patients with Krabbe disease, is currently in the early phase of clinical development, and the focus of the initial “RESKUE” Phase 1/2 clinical trial will be an evaluation for safety of FBX-101.
• PBKR03: Passage Bio
The gene therapy product candidate, PBKR03, utilizes an AAVhu68 viral vector to deliver a functional GALC enzyme gene that codes for galactosylceramidase (GAL-C). The vector will be delivered directly to the cerebrospinal fluid by a single injection to the cisterna magna (ICM injection), with the goal of increasing levels of the GALC enzyme in both the central nervous system (CNS) and the peripheral nervous system (PNS).
