About viDA Therapeutics
viDA Therapeutics, Inc. (viDA) is a platform-based, biotechnology company developing first-in-class therapeutics based on its recent discovery of a new mechanism of action for a well-characterized protease target, Granzyme B (GzmB). This emerging science is leading to new treatments in impaired tissue repair, fibrosis, inflammation and aging and is pivotal in understanding the underlying causes of diseases affecting vasculature, skin, musculoskeletal and potentially neurological systems. GzmB, one of a family of five serine proteases known as granzymes, is now emerging as a key target for drug development given recent discoveries of its extracellular actions, providing a clear distinction from GzmB’s intracellular role in apoptosis. viDA is developing a library of granzyme inhibitors designed for multiple routes of administration to treat chronic and orphan skin conditions, fibrosis, autoimmune and cardiovascular disease.
