Treatment options

There are several treatment options for patients with hereditary ATTR (hATTR) amyloidosis.

Available therapies work to manage the condition by:

  • Decreasing the amount of transthyretin (TTR) protein in the body—these treatments decrease the amount of TTR protein made in the body, which can help decrease the amount of amyloid deposits and may result in fewer symptoms
  • Binding to TTR proteins—these treatments can prevent the TTR protein from taking on an abnormal shape and forming deposits in the body
  • Removing the source of variant TTR—a liver transplant may be an option for some patients who meet certain eligibility criteria

Your doctor may also prescribe medication to help manage some of the symptoms of hATTR amyloidosis. Since symptoms of hATTR amyloidosis can worsen over time, managing symptoms can be an ongoing process. Talk to your doctor about what hATTR amyloidosis treatments are available and which may be right for you.
