About Synklino -

Synklino is developing a drug candidate, SYNx, aiming to eradicate cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection. SYNx is being developed for patients undergoing a solid organ or stem cell transplantation, preventing late onset CMV disease. Late onset CMV currently causes suboptimal transplantation outcome, leading to increased morbidity, prolonged hospitalization and raised mortality rates. SYNx is a highly effective, potent, and fast-acting CMV-specific immunotoxin with the unique ability to kill lytic and latently infected cells. The technology allows for highly efficient treatment of CMV infected transplant recipients and can also treat organs and cells ex vivo before organ or stem cell transplantation.
