Revolutionizing the Treatment of Autoimmune Diseases
Our platform approach involves the development of novel, targeted therapeutics utilizing specific self-antigens and unique tolerogenic molecules to actively promote immune tolerance. Our patented nanotechnology is designed to induce antigen specific immune tolerance.
Our nanoformulations incorporate two integral aspects which work together to send a strong therapeutic signal:
- Signal 1 : Tolerance Molecule
The tolerogenic molecule is designed to induce a strong anti-inflammatory signal and promote tolerance to our desired antigen. Such molecules include ligands of the aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AHR) which induces immune tolerance through the induction of anti-inflammatory pathways and the suppression of pro-inflammatory signals.
- Signal 2 : Antigen
The antigen is the target of our tolerogenic signal and can be a protein, peptide, or collection of peptides. With the versatility of our nano formulation system, this component can be customized to target antigens relevant to any autoimmune disease.
