Glycomine raises $12 million

Department: Business
Keywords: start-ups, Glycomine, rare diseases

Rare disease-focused Glycomine has raised $12 million in its first major round of financing, with support from Sanderling Ventures, Chiesi Ventures, high-net-worth individuals, and patients. Glycomine is developing substrate replacement therapies for two rare genetic diseases—congenital disorder of glycosylation Type Ia (CDG-Ia) and N-glycanase deficiency (Ngly1)—that currently lack treatments. The roughly 1,000 people with CDG-Ia are deficient in phosphomannomutase 2, an enzyme needed to produce glycoproteins.
