Company Overview

We are a clinical-stage specialty pharmaceutical company dedicated to the development and commercialization of best-in-class novel nanomedicines that combine our proprietary lipid-assembled drug delivery platform with approved active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs). Our extensive experience with liposome science allows us to combine onset speed and benefit duration, and to improve API concentrations at target tissues while decreasing unwanted systemic exposures.

Our BioSeizer® lipid formulation technology enables both local sustained release and fast onset of APIs at the site of disease or injury with increased pharmacokinetic (PK) control, made possible by customization of lipid layers. BioSeizer® is utilized in our TLC599, TLC590 and TLC399 programs.

Our NanoX® active drug loading technology enables better toxicity profiles, potential for reduced dosing frequency, and enhanced distribution of liposome-encapsulated APIs to the desired site. NanoX® is capable of loading over 50 various compounds and is applied to our TLC178 program. 

Our technologies can be used with a broad range of APIs and enable a simplified and scalable manufacturing process. Because our product candidates use already approved APIs, we are eligible to utilize the streamlined 505(b)(2) regulatory pathway for approval in the United States. We have used our proprietary technology platforms to assemble a diverse product candidate portfolio that targets significant areas of unmet medical need in pain management, ophthalmology, oncology, and infectious diseases. 

Our team has hundreds of years of combined experience in lipids and other life sciences products and drug development expertise. Their accomplishments include gaining the approval of two lipid formulation products marketed in Asia. We are headquartered in Taipei, Taiwan, with offices in Hong Kong, Leiden, Melbourne, Shanghai, South San Francisco and Tokyo.
