More on IdeS
Hansa Medicals’ drug candidate IdeS is developed as a fast, safe and expedient method to deactivate IgG-antibodies in sensitized patients prior to kidney transplantation. For sensitized patients, IgG-antibodies pose the primary obstacle for a transplant, forcing patients into years of treatment in dialysis. A successful Phase I-study was finalized in January 2014 and a Phase II study is planned for 2014 in sensitized patients awaiting kidney transplantation.
