About Agomab

Agomab – tackling fibrosis through growth factors

Agomab is a biotech company developing novel treatments that aim to preserve and restore organ function in fibrotic diseases. By translating a deep expertise in growth factor biology, we pioneer and develop novel treatments that aim to resolve fibrosis, repair tissue structure, and restore organ function. We combine our innovative R&D approach with an ambitious corporate strategy to develop a broad clinical pipeline of assets that target two key signaling pathways that are involved in fibrosis: transforming growth factor beta (TGFβ) and hepatocyte growth factor (HGF).

“WE ARE DETERMINED TO IMPROVE THE LIVES OF PATIENTS WITH FIBROTIC DISEASES. WE ARE BUILDING A LEADING COMPANY THAT COMBINES TRANSFORMATIVE SCIENCE WITH THE COMMITMENT AND PASSION OF OUR EXPERIENCED TEAM, PARTNERS, AND INVESTORS.”
