rating with ArmaGen and leveraging our ability to successfully develop medicines to treat this rare, life-threatening disease."

Shire researched, developed and commercialized the first treatment approved for Hunter syndrome. This agreement with ArmaGen expands Shire's commitment to finding treatments for Hunter syndrome, which also includes SHP-609, Shire's product currently being investigated to treat the CNS manifestations associated with Hunter syndrome.

James Callaway, Ph.D., Chief Executive Officer of ArmaGen said, "Shire is the ideal partner for AGT-182, based on the company's international reach and expertise in serving patients with Hunter syndrome. We look forward to beginning the Phase I/II clinical trial of AGT-182 in collaboration with Shire and leveraging their expertise with these patients."  

About AGT-182

AGT-182, which has received orphan drug designation from both the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the European Medicines Agency (EMA), is designed to take advantage of the body's natural system for transporting products across the blood brain barrier (BBB) by using the same receptor that delivers insulin to the brain. AGT-182 is engineered by the fusion of the replacement IDS enzyme to an antibody that binds to a receptor on the BBB. The IDS enzyme is designed to cross the BBB attached to that antibody.

About Hunter syndrome (MPS II)

Hunter syndrome or Mucopolysaccharidosis II (MPS II) is a rare, life-threatening genetic disorder that results from the absence or insufficient levels of the lysosomal enzyme iduronate-2-sulfatase. Without this enzyme, cellular waste products called mucopolysaccharides, also known as glycosaminoglycans or GAGs accumulate in tissues and organs, which then begin to malfunction. Possible signs and symptoms include large head, enlarged abdomen, frequent ear infections, difficulty breathing, joint stiffness, and short stature. It is estim
