GeNeuro S.A. (Euronext Paris: GNRO)

GeNeuro was created in 2006 by Eclosion, the Geneva life sciences accelerator, as a spin-off of Institut Mérieux of France. It develops first-in-class therapies against diseases associated with the expression of pathogenic proteins of human endogenous retroviral origin (HERV). GeNeuro’s lead product, GNbAC1, is a therapeutic antibody that targets MSRV-Env, a protein expressed in Multiple Sclerosis (MS) lesions from an early stage, which has been shown to be both pro-inflammatory and an inhibitor of remyelination, the two major drivers of MS progression. The Multiple Sclerosis associated retrovirus (MSRV) is normally latent in the genome of individuals, but it can be re-activated by viral infections and other co-factors to express a pathogenic protein, MSRV-Env. MSRV-Env provides a missing link between the observation that viral infections are associated with the onset of the disease and expression of the pathogenic factor (the MSRV-Env protein), which can then explain the inflammatory and demyelinating characteristics of MS. By targeting a potential key factor present in all types of MS that fuels both inflammation and neurodegeneration, GeNeuro aims to bring to patients a safe, long-term treatment with the potential to reduce or stop progression of the disease. As the first drug intended to address a potential causal factor of the disease, it may radically change the way MS patients are treated. *
