Developing precision medicine for rare and catastrophic forms of genetic epilepsy

Our technology rapidly identifies antiepileptic drugs and monitors toxicology – Epygenix Therapeutics uses an innovative zebrafish-based platform applying phenotype-based in vivo screening.

Therapeutic Focus
Epygenix Therapeutics focuses on development of new treatments for rare and catastrophic forms of genetic epilepsy, including Dravet Syndrome, Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome, Infantile Spasm, Cute Syndrome, and Ohtahara Syndrome.

Drug Repurposing
Epygenix Therapeutics discovers new uses for known drugs, identifying and applying existing drugs to treat diseases in new ways.

What is Epygenix?

Epygenix Therapeutics is a precision medicine-based biopharmaceutical company focused on discovering and developing drugs that treat Dravet syndrome (DS) and other genetic epilepsies. DS is a rare and catastrophic form of intractable epilepsy that begins in infancy. Current therapeutic options are not effective, and the constant care required can severely impact quality of life for the entire family. Dravet syndrome, like most genetic forms of epilepsy, represents an orphan indication with an unmet medical need.
