First Transplant Of A Genetically Modified Kidney To A Human. Eledon announced that tegoprubart, its drug in development to prevent organ transplant rejection, was used in the first transplant of an engineered pig kidney into a human patient. The kidney was genetically engineered by eGenesis, Inc, a company that has been collaborating with Eledon. Tegoprubart is currently in a Phase 2 clinical trial testing it against tacrolimus in prevention of kidney transplant rejection.

Eledon Has A Research Collaborated With eGenesis. The pig kidney was engineered by eGenesis, Inc, a company that formed a research collaboration with Eledon in January 2023. eGenesis has proprietary technology for engineering genetic changes to animal organs to make them compatible for transplantation into humans. As described in our Research Note on October 16, these genetic changes reduce the cross-species immunological barriers. The agreement allows eGenesis to use tegoprubart in its xenotransplantation research.
