Envisioning an end to blindness

About Broadwing Bio

We are advancing antibody therapies to treat major causes of adult vision loss.

With robust antibody-based drugs directed to genetically validated targets, we will develop therapies that preserve vision to meaningfully impact people's lives.

Lift our success

Broadwing Bio was founded with a mission of ending blindness. To ensure our success, we will engage collaborative partners that share our vision to accelerate bringing medicines to patients in need.

What we do

Developing therapies for individuals with Geographic Atrophy and Glaucoma

Geographic Atrophy

Geographic Atrophy

Geographic Atrophy (GA) is an advanced form of Age-Related Macular Degeneration characterized by progressive irreversible vision loss for which there is no current treatment option. The atrophy is a loss of photoreceptors in the central visual field. As the progresslive atrophy encroaches on the fovea, central vision is impacted. This can lead to disability and blindness. The goal of interventional therapy for GA is to halt or slow the progression of photoreceptor loss, preserving vision.

Glaucoma

Glaucoma

Glaucoma is a group of diseases impacting the optic nerve and involving the loss of retinal ganglion cells. Overproduction of aqueous humor or reduced outflow increases intraocular pressure, damaging the optic nerve and diminishing peripheral vision. The goal of interventional therapy for glaucoma is to prevent optic nerve damage and preserve vision.
