About EDI200

Ectodysplasin-A1 (EDA-A1) is a signaling protein expressed in healthy individuals that is involved in the formation of sweat glands, teeth, hair and certain glandular structures. This protein is missing in patients with XLHED.  EDI200 is a form of EDA-A1 being developed by Edimer as a treatment for certain patients with XLHED.  EDI200 has been shown to substitute for lack of functional EDA-A1 protein in mouse and dog models of XLHED.
