Established drugs can be repurposed for new clinical indications for unmet medical needs when protected by strong intellectual property. Historical drug safety data and existing manufacturing ‘know-how’ can fast-track clinical development and reduce commercialisation costs for repurposed drugs.
Life is complex! For every diagnosis, there are multiple factors and biological interactions involved. We develop therapeutics targeting multiple pathways involved in injury or on the road to disease producing better outcomes for patients.
PENTOSAN POLYSULPHATE SODIUM (PPS)
We focus on PPS because this FDA approved drug has a long history of safety and efficacy in treating interstitial cystitis and deep vein thrombosis. Our patents cover new applications in bone marrow edema (BME) and respiratory disease.
