About WHIM Syndrome

WHIM syndrome is a primary immunodeficiency disease caused by genetic mutations
in the CXCR4 receptor gene
resulting in susceptibility to certain
types of infections. WHIM is an abbreviation for the characteristic
clinical symptoms of the syndrome: Warts, Hypogammaglobulinemia,
Infections, and Myelokathexis. Within the overall category of primary
immunodeficiencies, there are between 15,000 and 100,000 patients in the
US that are classified with primary immunodeficiency disease of unknown
origin – of which WHIM is one.1,2,3 WHIM syndrome is a rare
disorder and the precise prevalence or incidence of patients that have
the genetic mutation responsible for WHIM syndrome is unknown. Because
patients are highly susceptible to infections, WHIM syndrome is
associated with significant morbidity beginning in early childhood and
continuing throughout life. Current therapy is limited to treatment of
acute infections with antibiotics or prevention through the use of
intravenous immunoglobulin or G-CSF. There is no approved therapy for
the treatment of WHIM syndrome.

About X4 Pharmaceuticals

X4
Pharmaceuticals
is developing novel therapeutics designed to improve
immune cell trafficking to treat cancer and rare diseases. The Company’s
oral small molecule drug candidates antagonize the CXCR4
pathway, which plays a central role in immune surveillance. X4’s most
advanced product candidate, X4P-001-RD, is in a Phase 2/3 study in
patients with WHIM syndrome, a rare genetic, primary immunodeficiency
disease. X4P-001-IO is currently under investigation in multiple
clinical studies in solid tumors. X4 was founded and is led by a team
with deep product development and commercialization expertise, including
several former members of the Genzyme leadership team, and is located in
Cambridge, MA. For more information, visit www.x4pharma.com.
