Information about The NIBEC presentation
NIBEC will provide an overview of TOPscovery (Target-Oriented Peptide Therapeutics Discovery & Delivery), its technology platform and process to discover unique peptide-based therapeutics and drug delivery systems.
The drug delivery platform has three core solutions:
1. Target-specific intracellular protein/antibody/siRNA delivery, known as NIPEP-TPP, for oncology and metabolic diseases;
2. Brain delivery for oncology and CNS diseases; and
3. Oral formulation for chronic disease such as NASH and IBD.
NIPEP-TPP can increase delivery efficiency of protein/antibody/siRNA drug while alleviating off-target side effects. Specifically, the benefit of NIPEP-TPP in combination with RNA therapeutics lies at the stability and target-selective delivery.
In addition, the Company will review the current status its proprietary therapeutics pipeline generated from its peptide therapeutics discovery platform (PEPScovery). The development pipeline includes programs for the treatment of osteoporosis, IBD, NASH, and pulmonary fibrosis. The peptide therapeutics are focused on new mode of action to resolve unmet medical needs from conventional therapy.
“We are delighted to introduce our peptide program that is dedicated to drug delivery based on NIPEP-TPP to selectively deliver any type of drug, including protein and RNA therapeutics, intracellularly,” said Dr. Chong Pyung Chung, CEO of NIBEC. “In addition, we will provide an update on our therapeutic programs for inflammatory disease and oncology. We look forward to meeting virtually with pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies to discuss development and commercialization opportunities.”
NIBEC is established as a spin-off venture from Seoul National University, South Korea at 2004 and listed in Korean Stock Market (KOSDAQ) at 2011. The company's main technology is based on target-oriented peptide therapeutic discovery (TOPscovery) platform for drug discovery and development. NIBEC has target tissue/cell penetrating peptide delivery platform to deliver protein/antibody/siRNA into the target tissue such as cancer. The company’s focus of therapeutic area are inflammatory diseases (NASH, IBD) and cancer with new mode of action. The other advanced therapeutic program is for the treatment of osteoporosis entering phase I. In addition to the drug development, the company holds medical device manufacturer license for tissue engineering biomaterials, tissue regenerative therapy dedicated to bone healing. The company has two research institutes and one manufacturing facility with fully granted GMP.
