Dyax is a fully integrated biopharmaceutical company focused on the discovery, development and commercialization of novel biotherapeutics for unmet medical needs. The Company currently markets KALBITOR® for the treatment of acute attacks of hereditary angioedema (HAE) in patients 12 years of age and older. Dyax is also developing DX-2930 for the prophylactic treatment of HAE.
Both KALBITOR and DX-2930 were identified using Dyax's patented phage display technology. Dyax has broadly licensed this technology and has a portfolio of product candidates being developed by its licensees, which it refers to as the Licensing and Funded Research Portfolio (LFRP). The Company is eligible to receive future milestones and/or royalties dependent upon the development and commercialization of these candidates. In April 2014, Dyax’s licensee Lilly received FDA approval for CYRAMZA™ (ramucirumab) as a single-agent treatment for patients with advanced gastric cancer after prior chemotherapy, making this the first approved product from Dyax’s LFRP.
