hATTR amyloidosis is a result of a mutation in transthyretin (TTR) gene. As a result, the TTR protein misfolds, which inevitably results in misshapen proteins being deposited as amyloid throughout different tissues and organs in the body.
As these amyloid deposits build up, it can causes a variety of health conditions, the two most common being cardiomyopathy and neuropathy.
Onpattro works by preventing the growth of the TTR protein by breaking down mRNA. As new amyloid deposits are prevented, the body will begin breaking down old buildup, reducing symptoms of neuropathy.
