Promethera’s mission is to apply its proprietary liver cell-based technology to meet the needs of patients with acute and chronic liver diseases.
Promethera is pioneering the development of novel cell-based therapies for the treatment of a broad variety of liver diseases. The Company’s platform has the potential to deliver novel therapeutic options for inherited disorders including hemophilia as well as acquired chronic and acute liver diseases such as Acute-on-Chronic-Liver Failure (ACLF), fibrosis and Non-Alcoholic Steatohepatits (NASH).
