Current Drug Delivery Limitations
Protein and peptide therapeutic delivery options for patients are generally limited to injections and infusions. In addition to the pain and compliance issues associated with these delivery techniques, the delivery profile is often non-optimal, negatively affecting treatment outcomes. Spikes in concentration immediately following injections often cause side effects, while the diminished concentrations after molecules are eliminated can reduce efficacy.
Pressure from payers for improved compliance and thus, convenience, is driving the need to innovate novel solutions in drug delivery. Extended release, constant-rate implants address all of these issues, and may even improve patient outcomes. In addition to producing constant-rate delivery, an optimal device would be small, easy to implant, and most importantly, safe over the duration of the implantation. Nano Precision Medical is developing a biocompatible, rice-grain sized, subdermal implant with the NanoPortal TM membrane to provide long-term, constant-rate delivery of therapeutic macromolecules for up to a year.
Pain, No Gain
Current Standard Injection Therapy
Unnecessary side effects
Spikes in concentration immediately following injections often cause toxicity and undesirable patient side effects.
Lack of efficacy
Diminished concentrations between injections can limit treatment efficacy.
Difficulty with compliance
Frequent, uncomfortable injections lead to reduced patient compliance and suboptimal outcomes.
Worry-Free, Constant-Rate Delivery
NanoPortal Eliminates The Need For Frequent Injections
Consistent delivery rates eliminate concentration spikes and diminished concentrations, overcoming the pharmacokinetic inadequacies of standard injection therapy.
Patients can be confident that they will receive their medication for many months without any need for continual oversight.
Clinicians and insurance providers can trust that patients receive their prescribed treatment, maximizing the chance for positive outcomes.
The NanoPortal TM Solution
Nano Precision Medical is developing a small, rice-grain sized implant with the NanoPortal membrane to provide long-term, constant-rate delivery of therapeutics for many months. The rice-grain sized device is designed for easy implantation under the skin.
Biocompatible, titania, nanoporous membrane technology enables constant-rate release without moving parts or electronics.
Our potent formulation permits an extended duration of therapy to fit into a compact device.
Easy to implant
Our rice-grain sized device can be implanted in minutes during a simple, outpatient procedure.
