Pegvaliase, sold under the brand name Palynziq, is a medication for the treatment of the genetic disease phenylketonuria.[4][5] Chemically, it is a pegylated derivative of the enzyme phenylalanine ammonia-lyase that metabolizes phenylalanine to reduce its blood levels.[6]

It was approved by the Food and Drug Administration for use in the United States in 2018.[4] The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) considers it to be a first-in-class medication.[7]
