Chronic Neutropenia

Overview

  • Neutropenia is a complex disease, marked by having a low number of neutrophils, a type of white blood cell. The lower the neutrophil count, the greater the risk of infection.
  • Neutropenia can be described as chronic, congenital (from birth), or cyclical neutropenia. Not all specialists describe neutropenia the same way and not all describe it as a type of primary immunodeficiency.
    • Congenital neutropenia is both a rare blood disorder and a rare type of primary immunodeficiency (PID).
  • People living with neutropenia have few treatment options. More treatment options are needed.
  • X4 Pharmaceuticals is conducting a Phase 1b clinical trial to help researchers answer questions about the study drug, mavorixafor, and what impact it may have after one dose.
