Skin and eye diseases may negatively affect the appearance and quality of life, why patients are highly involved in the choice of therapy. Patients should expect and are looking for therapies that are not only safe and efficacious, but also convenient and easy to use in daily routines – in particular in the case of life-long chronic diseases.
Sometimes new topical therapies are difficult to develop for reasons of stability or solubility of the active ingredients or due to difficulties in delivering active ingredients into the target tissue in the skin or eyes. This often results in the termination of development of otherwise promising new therapies or in suboptimal formulations of the products that patients do not like to use in daily routines, e.g. because they are greasy (stain clothes and bedding) or causes stinging and burning. Empiric evidence shows that patients are less likely to use such inferior products as prescribed, which results in poor real-life efficacy and satisfaction. These dynamics cause patients to discontinue therapies, shift to more convenient, but less effective topicals or to shift to much more expensive systemic (oral or injectable) therapies.
PAD ™ Technology enables new topical formulations of potent active ingredients into PAD ™ creams or PAD ™ eye drops, designed to be pleasant for patients to use in daily routines, while optimizing delivery of the active ingredients into the target tissue thereby releasing the full potential. This enables formulation of new active ingredients into topical therapies and an opportunity to significantly upgrade existing leading drugs. PAD ™ Technology enables a new standard in topical therapies for chronic inflammatory conditions by releasing the full potential of active ingredients in formulations designed for high tolerability and patient convenience.
Our current pipeline includes several PAD ™ based drug candidates as well as a novel non-drug skincare line biomee™ designed for dry, itchy and sensitive skin.
Our drug programs are addressing major chronic inflammatory diseases such as psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, uremic pruritus, lichen sclerosus and dry eyes:
