About our research
Halozyme® is a biotechnology company focused on developing novel therapies to fight cancer and make drugs more effective. Our unique research focuses on the tumor microenvironment, where even the smallest adjustments can make a big impact.
Science has found that a chain of natural sugars in the body, called “hyaluronan” (HA), often accumulates in tumors. HA may act as a barrier to the traditional cancer-fighting drugs that are trying to get into the tumor. By targeting and breaking down HA, our goal is to increase the access of cancer drugs or immunotherapies to the tumor, making treatments more effective.
