Homocystinuria caused by Cystathionine Beta-Synthase (CBS) Deficiency is a rare autosomal-recessive metabolic condition characterized by an excess of homocysteine (Hcy) in the plasma, tissues and urine. It is due to reduced or absent activity of the CBS enzyme, and is also known as classical homocystinuria. The symptoms associated with homocystinuria are variable in severity and time of onset across patients. Some affected individuals may have mild signs of the disorder; others may have multi-systemic involvement including potentially life-threatening complications. Homocystinuria can affect many different organ systems of the body; the four most commonly involved are the eyes, central nervous system, skeleton, and the vascular system.

The current approaches to treatment of homocystinuria patients include a highly restrictive diet and use of dietary supplements. Lifetime compliance with this diet is poor. Pegtibatinase (TVT-058) represents a novel therapeutic approach that incorporates the use of a modified version of the native, human CBS (hCBS) enzyme. The goal of treatment is to introduce the CBS enzyme into circulation, resulting in reduced Hcy levels, increased cystathionine (Cth) and cysteine (Cys) levels.

Use of any investigational product or investigational medical device within 30 days prior to Screening, or while on study
Use or planned use of any injectable drugs containing PEG (other than pegtibatinase or COVID-19 vaccines), including medroxyprogesterone (eg, Depo-Provera) injection, within 3 months prior to Screening and during study participation

Known hypersensitivity to PEG-containing product or any components of pegtibatinase
A history of organ transplantation, chronic immunosuppressive therapy, or substance abuse
Pregnant or breastfeeding at Screening or planning to become pregnant (self or partner) or to breastfeed at any time during the study
Concurrent disease or condition or planned major surgery that would interfere with study participation or safety in the opinion of the investigator
Any condition that, in the view of the investigator, places the subject at high risk of poor treatment compliance or of not completing the study
Major surgery planned during the study period
