Dyax is a fully integrated biopharmaceutical company focused on the discovery, development and commercialization of novel biotherapeutics for unmet medical needs. The Company's key value drivers are the KALBITOR ® (ecallantide) business, DX-2930 and the Licensing and Funded Research Program (LFRP).Dyax developed KALBITOR on its own and, since February 2010, has been selling it in the United States for the treatment of acute attacks of HAE in patients 16 years of age and older. Outside the United States, the Company has established partnerships to obtain regulatory approval and commercialize KALBITOR in certain markets and is evaluating opportunities in others. The Company is developing products to expand its angioedema portfolio, including a therapeutic candidate, DX-2930, for the prophylactic treatment of HAE and a diagnostic test to identify plasma kallikrein-mediated disorders. In August 2013, Dyax began a Phase 1 clinical study evaluating the safety and tolerability of single subcutaneous administration of DX-2930 in healthy subjects.
