BioMarin and IGAN Biosciences to Collaborate on Development of an Enzyme Therapy to Treat IgA Nephropathy, a Rare and Life-Threatening Kidney Disease
Date:12/3/2007

idated markers of renal function and injury will help define a straightforward clinical and regulatory path, and this program also leverages our biologics manufacturing and process development infrastructure and expertise."

IgA nephropathy or Berger's disease is a primary glomerulonephritis characterized by mesangial deposits of IgA complexes. Over time, these deposits damage the kidney, causing 20% of adults with the disorder to progress to end stage renal disease (ESRD). Patients in ESRD require dialysis or a kidney transplant to survive. In the United States, approximately 800 patients per year develop ESRD caused by IgA nephropathy out of the 40,000 patients affected by the disorder.
