Annexin A5 project rights have been transferred to Medirista.

Athera Biotechnologies AB has announced that the rights to the recombinant Annexin A5 have been transferred to Medirista AB.

Medirista is a biotech company owned by the original innovators of the Annexin A5 project, Johan and Anna Frostegård.

The whole patent portfolio together with key preclinical assets have been transferred. Athera will continue its focus on development of the lead product candidate, the fully human antibody in atherosclerosis.

Recombinant Annexin A5 has been developed to preclinical stage by Athera as an anti-inflammatory therapy, primarily targeting prevention of complications following vascular surgery.

Annexin A5 has been shown to beneficially affect remodelling in a preclinical model of coronary bypass grafting. Another study showed that low doses of Annexin A5 could prevent injury in a model mimicking catheter-based percutaneous interventions (PCI) in mice.

Millions of PCI procedures are done per year due to acute coronary syndrome (ACS) and the number is rapidly increasing.
