ProLynx announces SBIR grant award to develop novel technology for dual receptor agonists25.9.2017 15:00 | Pressemelding
SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 25, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Today, ProLynx announced it was awarded a Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant from the NIH to expand its technology platform to control delivery of two or more drugs in a single agent. In the ProLynx platform, a drug is tethered to hydrogel microspheres by a self-cleaving linker that is pre-programmed to release the drug at a pre-determined rate. After subcutaneous injection, the drug is slowly released from the microsphere carrier into the systemic circulation. Since the half-life of the released drug is solely dictated by the cleavage rate of the linker used, if two different drugs are attached to the same carrier by the same linker, the in vivo half-lives of the two drugs released will be the same. The relative potencies of each drug are controlled by the relative amounts of each drug attached to the carrier. Daniel Santi, cofounder, stated, "We will first develop this technology with a combination of our long
