MedinCell develops long-acting injectable products with its BEPO copolymer technology.
MedinCell’s platform has the power to create depot formulations of known substances with improved PK/PD profiles. This causes drugs that have smaller windows of treatment to be more effective, reducing the peaks and troughs of drug exposure. This limits the adverse effects associated with peak concentrations, while it maintains a higher AUC exposure.
Based on its platform, MedinCell has collaborations with Teva on schizophrenia (phase III), the AIC on pain/inflammation (Phase II), the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation on contraception (Preclinical), and a broad pipeline of internal projects in the preclinical stage.
For over a decade, Advicenne has been dedicated to developing and commercializing innovative treatments for those suffering from rare kidney diseases. Our lead drug candidate, ADV7103, is currently in late-stage clinical trials for two renal indications.
In 2017, ADV7103 was granted orphan drug designation by the European Commission in the treatment of distal renal tubular acidosis (dRTA), a rare kidney disorder that occurs when the kidneys are unable to effectively remove the buildup of circulating acids in the blood. Currently in Phase III clinical trials for this indication in Europe, the United States and Canada, ADV7103 was submitted for European marketing authorization in March of 2019. If approved, it will be the first authorized treatment for dRTA.
