Leuven.Inc Ondernemerscafé ThromboGenics

An integrated biopharmaceutical company focused on developing innovative ophthalmic and oncology medicines.

ThromboGenics’ lead product JETREA® (ocriplasmin) is the first approved pharmacological treatment for symptomatic vitreomacular adhesion (VMA)/vitreomacular traction (VMT).

The US Food and Drugs Administration (FDA) approved JETREA® for the treatment of symptomatic VMA in October 2012. ThromboGenics launched the drug in the US by its own commercial organization in mid-January 2013.

In March 2013, the European Commission approved JETREA® for VMT, including when associated with macular hole of diameter less than or equal to 400 microns. Alcon, ThromboGenics’ partner for the commercialization of JETREA® outside the US, has now launched the drug in the UK, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Finland.

Next to an overview of ThromboGenics, speakers will elaborate on their strategic partnership with Alcon (Novartis) for the commercialization of JETREA® outside the United States as well as on the regulatory path, its challenges and learnings.

ThromboGenics is headquartered in Leuven, Belgium, and has-offices in Iselin, NJ (US) and Dublin, Ireland. The Company is listed on the NYSE Euronext Brussels exchange under the symbol THR.
