Current standard of care and emerging treatment strategies

Current standard of care treatment options available for ATTR-CM are aimed at symptom management, supportive care including pain management, nutritional and mobility support and mitigation of the effects of the disease on other organs.1

In February 2020, marketing authorisation in the United Kingdom was granted for Vyndaqel▼ (tafamidis), a transthyretin stabiliser, available as a once-daily 61 mg oral capsule2, for the treatment of wild-type or hereditary transthyretin amyloidosis in adult patients with cardiomyopathy (ATTR-CM). Whilst there is a licence for Vyndaqel for ATTR-CM in the UK, there is not currently funded NHS access.

Additional treatment options are currently under investigation. Emerging treatment strategies are aimed at reducing the formation of the amyloid fibrils by targeting different stages of their development.3

Note: Some of these are investigational approaches, and no conclusions can be made about safety and efficacy.
