What Vyndaqel is and what it is used for


Vyndaqel contains the active substance tafamidis.
Vyndaqel is a medicine which treats a disease called Transthyretin (TTR) amyloid polyneuropathy,
also known as TTR familial amyloid polyneuropathy (TTR-FAP). TTR amyloid polyneuropathy is
caused by a protein called TTR that does not work properly. TTR is an important protein that carries
other substances, such as hormones, through the body.


In patients with this disease, TTR breaks up and may form fibres called amyloid. Amyloid can build
up around your nerves and in other places in your body, preventing them from working normally.
Eventually, the amyloid causes the symptoms of this disease.


Vyndaqel, can prevent TTR from breaking up and forming amyloid deposits. This medicine is used to
treat adult patients with this disease whose nerves have been affected (people with symptomatic
polyneuropathy).
