More on IdeS
The enzyme IdeS is developed as a fast, safe and expedient method to deactivate anti-HLA antibodies in sensitized patients prior to kidney transplantation. For sensitized patients, anti-HLA antibodies pose the primary obstacle to become transplanted, and the patients are referred to long-term dialysis. A successful Phase I-study with IdeS was finalized in January 2014. A Phase II study application for treatment of sensitized kidney transplantation patients has been approved by the Swedish Medical Products Agency, and the study is scheduled for 2014.
