ProteaPex Therapeutics’ patented, platform technology of locally-delivered therapeutics
Dr. D’Angelo, our CSO, will pitch our osteoarthritis products at the Philly Life Science Tech Transfer Showcase, hosted by BioStrategy Partners and BioLabs Philadelphia (https://www.biostrategypartners.org/event-5552994). In addition, ProteaPex Therapeutics will present posters on our dietary supplement product development and our platform technology of the Extracellular Matrix Protection Factors and their therapeutic value in several diseases.
Dr. Marina D’Angelo, CSO, discussed development of ECPF-1, the novel, injectable therapeutic that slows the progression of osteoarthritis.
ProteaPex Therapeutics presented our work on a rat model of osteoarthritis treated with ECPF-1. Following 4 weekly injections of ECPF-1. the knee cartilage contained less degradation and more healthy cartilage than the control untreated animals for at least 4 weeks post-injection. These results indicate a chondroprotective property to ECPF-1 and its potential as a therapeutic that may slow the progression of osteoarthritis.
Extracellular Matrix Protection Factor (ECPF-1) is a novel, safe and effective intra-joint injection that reduces the pain and damage caused by osteoarthritis.
Extracellular Matrix Protection Factor-2 (ECPF-2), is a safe, non-antibiotic oral healthcare treatment that slows the damage associated with periodontal disease.
Extracellular Matrix Protection Factor-3 (ECPF-3) can block the cellular players that cause narrowing of airways in Chronic Pulmonary Obstructive Diesase (COPD) and asthma.
ProteaPex Therapeutics holds broad-based patents detailing a disruptive technology that can accommodate a platform of products to address many diseases.
Extracellular Matrix Protection Factor (ECPF) is a novel, safe and effective platform of locally delivered therapeutics. The ECPFs target diseases where abnormal breakdown of the organ tissue is a sign of pathology. The patented mechanism of action is unlike any other competitors currently in development.
