Krystal Biotech

Krystal Biotech, Inc. is using gene therapy to develop effective and novel treatments for skin diseases. Our goal is to make a meaningful difference in the lives of underserved patient populations with debilitating skin diseases.

The gene therapies that Krystal Biotech is developing are designed to introduce therapeutic genes into a patient's cells. The genes are introduced into these cells using a modified HSV-1 virus that has been engineered to render the virus harmless to the patient. Specifically, the virus is modified so that it will not replicate in the patient's cells. In addition, the new genes that are introduced by the virus do not integrate into the cell's native genetic material.

Once the modified viral vector has delivered the genes into the skin cells, the genes then make (express) the encoded functional protein, supplementing the non-functional proteins expressed from the patient's own genome, thereby providing treatment to the underlying source of the disease. We call this our "STAR-D" technology and we are using it initially to develop topical treatments for rare or orphan dermatological indications such as EB.
