• Award reinforces AviadoBio’s position as one of the most promising early-stage biotech companies in the gene therapy industry
London, UK; Monday, September 12, 2022 — AviadoBio, a pioneering, pre-clinical stage gene therapy company focused on developing and delivering transformative medicines for people with neurodegenerative disorders, today announced that it has been selected by Fierce Biotech as a ‘Fierce 15’ 2022 winner, designating it one of the most promising early-stage biotechnology companies in the industry.
The award validates AviadoBio’s progress over the past year and recognizes the mission of the company, and its aspiration to develop gene therapy treatments for patients living with neurodegenerative diseases such as frontotemporal dementia (FTD) and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) who currently have few-to-no therapeutic options.
“This award acknowledges the immense progress AviadoBio has made this year, and is a testament to the hard work of everyone at the company,” said Lisa Deschamps, Chief Executive Officer. “This year has marked some important milestones, including securing orphan drug designation from the FDA and EMA, as we move AVB-101, our investigational AAV gene supplementation therapy AVB-101 for frontotemporal dementia (FTD), into the clinic in late 2022.”
The Fierce 15 celebrates biotech companies who champion innovation and creativity. Every year Fierce Biotech evaluates hundreds of early-stage companies from around the world for its annual Fierce 15 list, which is based on a variety of factors such as the strength of technology, partnerships, venture backers and a competitive market position.
