About Q32 Bio
Q32 Bio is a clinical stage biotechnology company developing biologic therapeutics targeting powerful regulators of the innate and adaptive immune systems to re-balance immunity in severe autoimmune and inflammatory diseases. Q32 Bio’s lead programs, focused on the IL-7 / TSLP receptor pathways and complement system, address immune dysregulation to help patients take back control of their lives.
The first-in-human trial for the company’s most advanced program, ADX-914, a fully human anti-IL-7Ra antibody, is designed to evaluate safety and tolerability and demonstrate proof-of-mechanism in healthy volunteers. The IL-7 and TSLP pathways have been genetically and biologically validated to drive several T cell-mediated pathological processes in numerous autoimmune diseases.
Q32 Bio’s lead program for innate immunity, ADX-097, is based on a pioneering approach enabling tissue-targeted regulation of the complement system without long-term systemic blockade – a key differentiator versus current complement therapeutics.
