Momenta Pharmaceuticals, Inc.
Drug Names(s): M402
Description: M402 is a heparan sulfate glycosaminoglycan (HSGAG) mimetic engineered from low molecular weight heparin (LMWH) to have potent anti-metastatic properties and low anticoagulant activity. M402 binds and inhibits multiple factors including VEGF, FGF2, SDF-1-alpha, P-selectin, and heparanase.
HSGAGs are complex sugar-based molecules present in the tumor microenvironment that present growth factors, cytokines, and chemokines necessary for tumor cell growth, migration, and survival; M402 is designed to exploit the biology of HSGAGs.
