Quantum Genomics is developing a new therapeutic approach based on Brain Aminopeptidase A inhibition (BAPAI) , which result from more than twenty years of academic research in the laboratories of the Collège de France, INSERM and CNRS.
The research conducted by the team of Professor Bernard-Pierre Roques (INSERM U1022 / CNRS Unit/ Université Paris Descartes) and the team of Dr. Catherine Llorens-Cortes (INSERM U1050 / Collège de France) characterized the role of the brain renin-angiotensin system (RAS) and more particularly that of aminopeptidase A (APA) in the control of certain cardiovascular functions including blood pressure. This research work also resulted in the synthesis and characterization of original non-peptide molecules that selectively inhibit APA such as the firibastat product.
Quantum Genomics holds an exclusive and global license for the exploitation of several patents and know-how held by INSERM and CNRS around the BAPAI technology. These patents also protect the therapeutic use in humans and animals of aminopeptidase A inhibitors, amongst which are the firibastat and QGC006 products.
