Creating next-generation therapies with TheraPEA™

Our TheraPEA™ polyester amide platform is unlocking entirely new therapeutic opportunities for the pharmaceutical industry through its ability to achieve multi-month, controlled drug release. 

This highly tunable biomaterial has a zero-order degradation profile and good correlation in-vitro and in-vivo up to 180 days. Furthermore, the unique chemistry of TheraPEA™ changes the game even further through its compatibility with a wide range of challenging Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients.

By developing customized drug delivery solutions with our partners in this way, we can enable longer duration therapies for patients with the potential to increase therapy adherence  – and allow for improved clinical outcomes, better healthcare economics and significantly less medical waste.

Discover our drug delivery solutions for viral disease management

Our drug delivery solutions have huge potential for various viral diseases, including hepatitis. They are especially promising in HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis and management. 

With our TheraPEA™ platform, we enable our pharmaceutical partners to create implantable and long-acting injectable therapies that give patients better access to the treatments they need – both in the United States and beyond (for example, in sub-Saharan Africa).  

Extending the therapy duration can also increase patient adherence – which of course is essential for ensuring the effectiveness of the prophylaxis (PreP).
