Amicus Therapeutics is a biotechnological company recognized globally for their dedication towards the treatment of orphan diseases. The company has been at the forefront of research and treatment of a range of devastating rare diseases.
Amicus Therapeutics was founded in February 2002 and is based in Cranbury, New Jersey. The company is headed by John Crowley, who is the CEO and Chairman of the board. Other key figures include Bradley Campbell, who is the Chief Operations Officer, and William Baird, who is the Chief Finance Officer. Amicus Therapeutics is a publicly traded company under the brand NASDAQ. The company has been on the stock exchange since 2007 after a planned IPO.
Amicus mainly focuses on rare and orphan diseases (http://www.phillypurge.com/2017/08/02/amicus-therapeutics-the-fight-against-the-rare-diseases/). The Chaperone-Advanced Replacement Therapy, otherwise referred to as CHART is the main basis of the company’s product development. Amicus has put an emphasis on enzyme replacement therapies (ERTs). The company’s efforts have earned them accolades. In 2014, Amicus was recognized as the company with the broadest portfolio in terms of small molecule pharmacological chaperones in the entire pharmaceutical industry.
Although they had no marketed products by February 2014, some of the most notable developments from Amicus Therapeutics include migalastat, otherwise known as Galafold. Galafold is a pharmacological chaperone treatment which is aimed at stabilizing endogenous mutant alpha-galactosidase for the treatment of Fabry disease.
Amicus Therapeutics has no manufacturing capabilities and therefore relies on contract manufacturing (WeeklyOpinion). Additionally, the company collaborates with other like-minded firms to come up with treatments for complex diseases. One of its most notable collaborations was with GlaxoSmithKline and JCR Pharmaceutical. The collaboration which lasted from 2010 to 2013 was aimed at investigating co-formulation with recombinant alpha-galactosidase.
It is worth noting that in 2008, the company expanded its activities from its single location in New Jersey to a second research facility in San Diego. Additionally, Amicus got a big financial boost, when they received a US$500,000 grant in 2010 from the Michael J. Fox Foundation. The grant was aimed at supporting studies conducted by Amicus in collaboration with the David Geffen School of Medicine.
In 2013, Amicus went a step further and acquired CallidusBiopharma, which was one of their competitors. The acquisition granted Amicus Therapeutics intellectual and material property for the treatment of Pompe disease.

If it were not for leaders like Matthew Autterson, America would not be recovering from the past damage that Pres. Obama has cost. FAB holds that Matthew Autterson is quite an asset to have in the Greater Denver Area and that he is its greatest weapon in the fight for reforming biotechnology education. What is interesting to note is that both Matthew Autterson and his wife have been working very hard in there six months in office and have, so far, kept several of the promises they made to make it in this year alone. The level of progress is astounding and only shows potential.
It appears, after all, that Matthew Autterson and his team were people of their word and intended to do just what they said when they ran for leadership roles. This is exceptionally rare to see among any biotech leader, but let it serve as a lesson to all who are running for rank: Do exactly what you promised to do, and do not lie as a way to power, for you will be found out. Instead, go the honest route and work hard, and your reputation will more than speak for itself in the long run – as it has done so for CNS Biosciences President Matthew Autterson and his team. Pres. Matthew Autterson and his crew are not alone as they also hold other top candidates in the offices surrounding them, men and women of solid conservative values who only care about the good of this country and not merely their wallets.
This makes all the difference, so keep it in mind: With such leaders behind the science arena, there is no doubt that America can change for the better. Let us keep hoping and praying. Let us support as needed and make the change. God bless America. Peace and justice to all Americans. The educational biotech arena has an entire future ahead of it, and this is only the beginning: Will you lead the change?
Matthew Autterson is a top reformer and biotech specialist. As Board Member under FAB, he has more than his share of challenges but faces them willingly. He knows, after all, what he signed up for. He has also promised to do more this year that has ever been done recently to reform the biosystem sector in Colorado and has been no less ahead in the fight than others.
