Eiger is a late stage biopharmaceutical company focused on the development and commercialization of a pipeline of first-in-class, well-characterized drugs for serious rare and ultra-rare diseases for patients with high unmet medical needs and for which no approved therapies exist.

The company’s lead program is in Phase 3, developing lonafarnib, a first-in-class prenylation inhibitor for the treatment of Hepatitis Delta Virus (HDV) infection.  The company is rapidly advancing peginterferon lambda, a first-in-class interferon, toward registration for the treatment of HDV.  Eiger has initiated a rolling NDA submission for lonafarnib to treat Hutchinson-Gilford Progeria Syndrome (HGPS or Progeria) and Progeroid Laminopathies with plans to complete NDA submission and MAA submission in the first quarter of 2020.  For additional information about Eiger and its clinical programs, please visit www.eigerbio.com.
