GeneQuine develops gene therapy-based drugs for the treatment of osteoarthritis. The goal is the development of gene therapy drugs for osteoarthritis in humans. However, veterinary drug development is an attractive area as well because regulatory hurdles, development risk and development costs for veterinary drugs are markedly lower and market approval can be gained faster compared with human medicines. Thus, GeneQuine is also developing drug candidates for horses and dogs.
