Talk
AG10, An Investigational Therapeutic for Cardiac Amyloidosis
AG10 is an investigational small molecule designed to potently stabilize tetrameric transthyretin (TTR). AG10 binding was designed to mimic a variant TTR, T119M, considered a rescue mutation because co-inheritance has been shown to prevent or ameliorate TTR amy-loidosis in individuals also inheriting a pathogenic variant.
