QED Therapeutics, a subsidiary of BridgeBio Services, focuses on precision medicine for FGFR-driven cancers and diseases. The company’s first therapy, TRUSELTIQTM (infigratinib), is an orally administered FGFR1-3 tyrosine kinase inhibitor that was recently approved by the US FDA for the treatment of patients with previously-treated locally advanced or metastatic cholangiocarcinoma (CCA) harboring an FGFR2 fusion or rearrangement. We are also evaluating infigratinib for the treatment of other FGFR-driven cancers as well as for the treatment of achondroplasia and other skeletal dysplasias. 

QED is derived from the Latin “Quod Erat Demonstrandum” —Thus, It Has Been Proven. Our business is inspired by our values:






FGFR=fibroblast growth factor receptor.
