      Halozyme is a biopharmaceutical company developing and commercializing products targeting the extracellular matrix ("Matrix") for the drug delivery, oncology, and dermatology markets. The company's portfolio of products is based on intellectual property covering the family of human enzymes known as hyaluronidases. The Matrix is a key structural component found in both normal tissues such as skin and bone, and abnormal tissues such as tumors. By expanding upon our scientific expertise in the Matrix, we hope to develop therapeutic and aesthetic drugs. Our lead enzyme, rHuPH20 hyaluronidase, is an example of a Matrix modifying enzyme. By degrading hyaluronan, a key Matrix component in the skin, rHuPH20 facilitates the delivery of drugs and fluids through the Matrix and into circulation. While rHuPH20 is the underlying drug delivery technology of both Hylenex for generic small molecules and fluids, and Enhanze Technology for proprietary small and large molecules, we are seeking ways to combine or co-formulate rHuPH20 with previously approved small molecule drugs to develop new proprietary products.
