Agios Pharmaceuticals Inc. Monday said it filed for U.S. Food and Drug Administration approval of mitapivat for the treatment of adults with pyruvate kinase, or PK, deficiency.

The Cambridge, Mass., biopharmaceutical company said there are currently no approved therapies for PK deficiency, a rare genetic disorder characterized by the premature destruction of red blood cells.

Agios said it is on track to file for European Union approval of mitapivat in mid-2021.
