HEALER™ Chemistry Platform
HEALER = High Efficiency Amino Lipid Enabled Release
Our drug candidates are novel molecules produced using our proprietary HEALER chemistry platform. Using HEALER, we transform oily, difficult-to-handle bioactive lipids into small molecule pharmaceuticals as off-white, free flowing powders. This chemical transformation improves bioavailability, increases oxidative stability, and provides enhanced pharmaceutical properties that enable efficient delivery of our active agents via oral, intravenous, and topical dosage forms.
As ionic new molecular entities (NMEs), HEALER compounds completely dissociate into their component entities in aqueous media and gastric fluids, precluding exposure of systemic tissues to the NME. This dissociation property leverages the inherent efficacy and safety of the natural lipids to lower the risk of off-target effects and reduce the time and cost to registration.
