About ERYTECH and eryaspase (GRASPA®):

Founded in Lyon, France in 2004, ERYTECH is a clinical-stage
biopharmaceutical company developing innovative therapies for rare forms
of cancer and orphan diseases. Leveraging its proprietary ERYCAPS
platform, which uses a novel technology to encapsulate therapeutic drug
substances inside red blood cells, ERYTECH has developed a pipeline of
product candidates targeting markets with high unmet medical needs.
ERYTECH’s initial focus is on the development of products that target
the amino acid metabolism of cancer, depriving them of nutrients
necessary for their survival.

The company’s lead product, eryaspase, also known under the trade name
GRASPA®, consists of an enzyme, L-asparaginase, encapsulated inside
donor-derived red blood cells. L-asparaginase depletes asparagine, a
naturally occurring amino acid essential for the survival and
proliferation of cancer cells. L-asparaginase has been a standard
component of multi-agent chemotherapy for the treatment of acute
lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), but side effects limit treatment
compliance, especially in adults and patients with weak performance
status. With its improved safety profile, eryaspase aims to provide
L-asparaginase to patients who cannot tolerate current non-encapsulated

Eryaspase in combination with chemotherapy achieved positive efficacy
and safety results in a Phase 2/3 study in children and adults with
relapsed or refractory ALL and in a Phase 2b clinical study in
second-line metastatic pancreatic cancer. ERYTECH also has an ongoing
Phase 1 clinical study of eryaspase in the United States in adults with
newly diagnosed ALL and a Phase 2b clinical study in Europe in elderly
patients with newly diagnosed acute myeloid leukemia (AML), each in
combination with chemotherapy.

ERYTECH produces eryaspase at its own GMP-approved and operational
manufacturing site in Lyon (France), and at a site for clinical
production in Philadelphia (USA). ERYTECH has entered into licensing and
distribution partnership agreements for eryaspase for ALL and AML in
Europe with Orphan Europe (Recordati Group), and for ALL in Israel with
TEVA, which will market the product under the GRASPA® brand name. The
European Medicines Agency (EMA) and the U.S. Food and Drug
Administration (FDA) have granted orphan drug designations for eryaspase
for the treatment of ALL, AML and pancreatic cancer.

In addition to eryaspase, ERYTECH is developing two other product
candidates, erymethionase and eryminase, that focus on using
encapsulated enzymes to target cancer metabolism and induce tumor
starvation. ERYTECH is also exploring the use of its ERYCAPS platform
for developing cancer immunotherapies (ERYMMUNE) and enzyme replacement
therapies (ERYZYME).

ERYTECH is listed on the NASDAQ market in the United States under the
ticker ERYP. ERYTECH is also listed on Euronext regulated market in
Paris (ISIN code: FR0011471135, ticker: ERYP) and is part of the
CAC Healthcare, CAC Pharma & Bio, CAC Mid & Small, CAC All Tradable,
EnterNext PEA-PME 150 and Next Biotech indexes. .
