Who we are

ASIT biotech is a clinical stage (Phase 3) biopharmaceutical company publicly listed on EURONEXT (Brussels & Paris).

ASIT biotech’s mission is to lead an evolution in allergy therapeutics by creating a new generation of highly effective and efficient immunotherapy options for respiratory and food allergies. Our goal is to generate breakthrough treatments that deliver rapid, recognizable improvement in the life of allergy patients, within weeks rather than months or years following treatment initiation.

Thanks to our innovative ASIT+™ technology platform, ASIT biotech is currently the only developer of allergy immunotherapy (AIT) product candidates consisting of a unique mixture of highly purified natural allergen fragments in an optimal size selection, without adjuvant. Resulting in a short treatment period, which is expected to improve patient compliance and ultimately results in an improved treatment.

ASIT biotech’s product pipeline consists of three novel ASIT+™ product candidates targeting respiratory allergies with the highest prevalence (i.e. grass pollen: gp-ASIT+™ - in ongoing phase III, house dust mite: hdm-ASIT+™), and food allergies (peanut allergy: pnt-ASIT+™). Each of these indications constitute substantial commercial opportunities in the immunotherapy market.

The ASIT+™ platform is flexible and is potentially applicable across a range of allergies.

 

Key milestones
