Zedira’s general approach in medicine targets dysregulated transglutaminase activity in disease states.

In the human body, eight transglutaminases fulfill a broad variety of physiological functions. On the other hand, transglutaminases are involved in the pathophysiology of various disorders. Celiac disease, thrombosis, fibrosis or even cancer and such neurodegenerative diseases as Alzheimer’s, Huntington’s and Parkinson’s disease are just some examples.

Celiac Disease
Zedira’s drug candidate ZED1227 targeting dysregulated TG2 in celiac disease is currently tested in phase I clinical trials (first-in-class).
  Partnering in Drug Development
Zedira offers its proprietary drug discovery platform for partnering in drug development.

Gluten Sensitive Neurological Disorders

Auto-antibodies specific for neuronal transglutaminase (TG6) can be measured with our proprietary ELISA-kits.

New: Analytical service for measurement of TG6-autoantibodies in human serum samples.
Thrombosis / Anticoagulation
Proof-of-principle for safe anticoagulation, meaning anticoagulation without increased bleeding risk using blood coagulation factor FXIIIa-blockers has recently been shown.
