Develops a family of small-molecule therapeutics that treats genetic disorders based on the company’s proprietary technology. The company’s technology therapies apply to conditions in which crucial proteins are defective as a result of improper folding. Instead of trying to replace these complex proteins, Amicus’ approach uses pharmacological chaperones to selectively bind the misfolded target protein and help the protein fold into its proper three-dimensional shape. Competitors include Genzyme Corp., Transkaryotic Therapies, BioMarin, and Large Scale Biology Corp.
