Global Blood Therapeutics is developing novel, orally-available therapeutics designed to change the treatment paradigm for chronic blood diseases. The Company is addressing severe, non-malignant blood-based diseases for which there are currently no effective cures and only extremely limited therapeutic options.

The current standard of care treats the symptoms during acute episodes; however, the underlying pathology of the disease causes progressive damage to the body. Global Blood Therapeutics is focused on the critical need for therapeutics that address the causes of blood diseases, not just the symptoms.

Global Blood Therapeutics’ extensive drug discovery capabilities — combining world-class medicinal chemistry with deep expertise in blood biology — are driving its product pipeline of mechanism-based therapeutics.

The Company has built a pipeline of preclinical programs focused on several blood diseases. Its lead program is in sickle cell disease, a global health challenge with very limited treatment options and none that address the underlying cause of the disease. The Company’s pipeline also includes a novel therapeutic for hereditary angioedema.

Global Blood Therapeutics is a private Company led by an experienced management team with a track record of four successful drug approvals and more than 30 investigational new drug applications. Backed by Third Rock Ventures, the Company was founded in 2012 with a $40.7 million Series A financing.
