Genzyme in the UK

Company Info

Oxford

Genzyme Therapeutics markets products for the treatment of a number of chronic debilitating diseases.

With a focus on rare diseases and Multiple Sclerosis we are dedicated to discovering and delivering transformative therapies for patients with rare and special unmet medical needs, providing hope where there was none before.

These include the rare lysosomal storage disorders (LSDs) characterised by a lack of enzymes which are essential to healthy biological processes. These enzyme deficiencies are caused by genetic defects. More than 70 different disorders (each caused by a different enzyme) have been identified, all of which can trigger a variety of serious complications resulting in disability or death. By replacing the missing enzyme, disease progression can be slowed, symptoms improved and health restored.

Other disease areas include oncology with a therapy used in the management of thyroid cancer.

There are also a range of products in development for lysosomal storage disorders, and multiple sclerosis.
