Leveraging a patient’s own biology to deliver rare disease therapeutics

Quince Therapeutics, Inc. is a late-stage biotechnology company dedicated to unlocking the power of a patient’s own biology to deliver innovative therapies to those living with rare diseases.

First Patient Dosed in Pivotal Phase 3 NEAT Clinical Trial of EryDex in Patients with A-T

Our strategic focus is to complete the pivotal Phase 3 clinical trial of EryDex, called NEAT (Neurologic Effects of EryDex on Subjects with A-T), to evaluate the safety and efficacy of EryDex for the treatment of Ataxia-Telangiectasia (A-T). A-T is an inherited autosomal recessive neurodegenerative and immunodeficiency disorder with currently no approved therapeutic treatments in any global market for this rare pediatric disease.

Quince has dosed the first patient and is actively enrolling participants for our global Phase 3 NEAT study. Patients with A-T interested in participating can learn more about the NEAT study criteria and locations by visiting Clinicaltrials.gov here.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration  granted Fast Track designation for our EryDex System for the treatment of patients with A-T, underscoring the high unmet medical need as there are currently no approved therapeutic treatments for A-T.

Our proprietary Autologous Intracellular Drug Encapsulation, or AIDE, technology platform is an innovative drug/device combination that uses an automated process to encapsulate a drug into a patient’s own red blood cells. Red blood cells have several characteristics that make them a potentially ideal vehicle for drug delivery, including potentially better tolerability, enhanced tissue distribution, reduced immunogenicity, and prolongation of circulating half-life. Our AIDE technology is designed to harness many of these benefits to allow for new and improved therapeutic options for patients living with high unmet medical needs.

EryDex is the first product in development that leverages our AIDE technology and is composed of dexamethasone sodium phosphate (DSP) encapsulated in autologous red blood cells targeted for the treatment of patients with A-T. DSP is a corticosteroid well known for its potent anti-inflammatory properties, as well as its dose-limiting toxicity due to adrenal suppression. EryDex is designed to provide the efficacy of corticosteroids and to reduce or eliminate the significant adverse effects that accompany chronic corticosteroid treatment.
