VM202, donaperminogene seltoplasmid, is a proprietary, non-viral, potentially regenerative plasmid DNA gene therapy. VM202 is a novel genomic cDNA hybrid human hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) gene with a novel and proprietary coding sequence (HGF-X7) expressing two isoforms needed for optimal therapeutic benefits. Because there is no change in the coding region of the HGF gene, HGF proteins generated from VM202 are identical to wild-type human HGF proteins.
When introduced into the body, HGF protein is expressed from VM202 and induces the formation of new blood vessels, suppresses levels of selective pain mediators, supports regeneration/repair of damaged peripheral nerves, and ameliorates atrophic condition of skeletal muscle.
