Progeria, which encompasses Hutchinson-Gilford Progeria Syndrome (HGPS) and Processing-Deficient Progeroid Laminopathies (PDPL), are ultra-rare, fatal, genetic premature aging diseases that accelerate mortality in young patients.
After receiving USFDA approval in 2020, Zokinvy also obtained approval in the European Union and Great Britain (2022) and in Japan (January 2024). This expansion of Zydus’ portfolio includes medicines for rare diseases.
“This acquisition signifies an important milestone in expanding our portfolio of medicines for rare and orphan diseases, which can have devastating consequences if left untreated. We are dedicated to supporting patients in living healthier and more fulfilling lives,” stated a representative from Zydus.

Audrey Gordon, President and Executive Director of The Progeria Research Foundation (PRF), remarked, “Without Zokinvy therapy, children with Progeria succumb to the same heart disease that affects millions of normally aging adults, but at an average age of 14.5 years old. Zokinvy provides these beautiful children with longer, healthier lives.”
