Transthyretin depletion for treatment of hereditary systemic and senile cardiac amyloidosis (360G-Wellcome-082989_Z_07_B)

Systemic transthyretin amyloidosis is a fatal late onset disease caused by tissue deposition of amyloid fibrils composed of variant and wild type transthyretin. The objective of the project is to construct compounds to trigger the accelerated clearance of plasma transthyretin molecules by the liver by synthesising palindromic ligand-linker-ligand compounds capable of cross-linking transthyretin molecules or oligosaccharide-ligand conjugates that direct hepatic clearance, which could be used as drugs for treating and preventing acquired and hereditary human systemic transthyretin amyloidosis. The aim is to optmise the design, synthesis, and properties of a transthyretin depleting drug and complete the comprehensive safety and efficacy evaluation required prior to administration of a validated candidate compound in humans.
