Startup Showcase: CombiGene—Pioneering Gene Therapy for Incurable Diseases

Offering the Gift of a Better Life Through Revolutionary Gene Therapies

Welcome to another exciting edition of Startup Showcase on EUStartup.news. Today, we turn the spotlight on CombiGene, a groundbreaking Swedish startup on the verge of changing the lives of people affected by severe, life-altering diseases through its innovative gene therapies.

A Mission to Uplift Lives: What CombiGene Stands For

Located in Lund, Sweden, CombiGene’s mission is nothing short of audacious: to develop effective gene therapies for patients suffering from life-altering conditions where adequate treatment options are currently absent. Among its most promising research is a therapy for a group of epilepsy patients for whom existing treatments have proven ineffective. CombiGene has successfully concluded its most critical preclinical studies with positive results, moving the needle closer to human trials.

Leveraging Cutting-Edge Gene Therapy: The Science Behind the Solution

CombiGene’s approach is both innovative and deeply scientific. The startup uses an adeno-associated viral vector (AAV) to administer a combination of neuropeptide Y (NPY) and its receptor Y2 directly to the part of the brain where the epileptic seizure originates. This direct application targets the root cause of the disease, offering the promise of substantial and meaningful relief for patients who have had little hope till now.

Regulatory Milestones: The Journey to Human Trials

The medical world is stringent when it comes to safety, and CombiGene is not cutting corners. Following its successful preclinical effect studies, the next step will involve compulsory safety studies. If these prove successful and Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) production of their therapy CG01 is attained, the stage will be set for human trials. Each regulatory milestone brings the startup closer to transforming lives, and given the positivity of the results so far, optimism is high.
