The DRIVE PK trial for people with Pyruvate Kinase deficiency

The DRIVE PK trial is studying an investigational therapy, AG-348, developed to treat the underlying cause of Pyruvate Kinase (PK) deficiency.1,2 AG-348 is an oral medication which may increase the levels of healthy red blood cells in the body that are critical for people with PK deficiency.1,2 It is not known if AG-348 will help with increasing the levels of healthy red blood cells, that is why this study is being conducted.
