About Verve Therapeutics
Verve Therapeutics is a genetic drug company pioneering a new approach to the management of cardiovascular disease, transforming the treatment of chronic management into single-treatment gene-editing drugs. The company’s two initial programs target PCSK9 and ANGPTL3, genes that have been widely validated as targets for lowering blood lipids such as low density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C), a root cause of cardiovascular disease. Verve’s flagship product candidate, VERVE-101, is designed to turn off the PCSK9 gene in the liver to disrupt the production of PCSK9 proteins in the blood and thereby reduce blood LDL-C levels, with the goal of reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease in the patient. VERVE-101, currently in studies enabling IND, is initially being developed for the treatment of patients with heterozygous familial hypercholesterolemia, a potentially fatal genetic heart disease.
