immunovant solutions for thyroid eye disease

We are a clinical-stage immunology company, dedicated to enabling normal lives for people with autoimmune diseases. As trailblazers in anti FcRn technology, we are developing innovative, targeted therapies to meet the complex and variable needs of people with autoimmune diseases.

Immunovant’s two investigational products, batoclimab and IMVT-1402, are novel, fully human, monoclonal antibodies that target FcRn and may reduce harmful immunoglobulin G (IgG) autoantibodies, which are common causes of autoimmune disease. We believe that both product candidates have the potential to address a variety of IgG-mediated autoimmune diseases as subcutaneous injections with dosing that may be tailored, based on disease stage and severity.
