PhaseBio Pharmaceuticals is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company developing novel drugs to treat metabolic and specialty cardiopulmonary disorders. The Company's proprietary technology platform uses recombinant elastin-like polypeptide (ELP) biopolymers to control the half-life, bioavailability and physical characteristics of molecules for ease of administration. The resulting compounds are engineered for a specific rate of absorption to enhance efficacy and reduce side effects. PhaseBio's lead development candidates include: PE0139, a novel, super-long-acting basal insulin-ELP fusion for once-weekly dosing; and PB1046, a weekly vasoactive intestinal peptide receptor agonist for the treatment of acute and chronic heart failure, the treatment of cardiomyopathy associated with Duchenne muscular dystrophy, Becker muscular dystrophy and X-linked dilated cardiomyopathy, and other indications.
