TiGenix NV (Euronext Brussels and NASDAQ: TIG) is a biopharmaceutical company developing and commercializing novel therapeutics which exploit the anti-inflammatory properties of allogeneic, or donor-derived, stem cells generated by its proprietary platform technologies.
TiGenix's lead product, Cx601, has successfully completed a European Phase III for the treatment of complex perianal fistulas - a severe, debilitating complication of Crohn's disease. Cx601 has been filed for regulatory approval in Europe and a global Phase III trial intended to support a future U.S. Biologic License Application (BLA) is expected to start in 2017. TiGenix has entered into a licensing agreement with Takeda, a large pharmaceutical company active in gastroenterology, under which Takeda acquired the exclusive right to commercialize Cx601 for complex perianal fistulas outside the U.S. Our second adipose-derived product, Cx611, is undergoing a Phase I/II trial in severe sepsis - a major cause of mortality in Western world hospitals. Finally, AlloCSC-01, targeting acute ischemic heart disease, has demonstrated positive results in a Phase I/II trial in acute myocardial infarction (AMI). TiGenix is headquartered in Leuven (Belgium) and has operations in Madrid (Spain).
