BioSeizer™

Our BioSeizer™ technology uses multi-layer lipid membranes to encapsulate therapeutically active molecules, providing an exceptionally long duration of drug release. BioSeizer™ nanoparticles are precisely designed to release the payload at a constant rate as each layer collapses over time. In addition, BioSeizer™ works to extend the duration of therapies based on both small molecules as well as large, biologic molecules.

Lipid molecules, such as phospholipids, contain two domains, a hydrophilic, or water-loving, head and a hydrophobic, or water-repelling, tail. In a solution with water, lipid combinations could naturally create bilayers in which the hydrophobic tails are aligned with each other facing away from the aqueous portion of the solution while the hydrophilic heads face the water. Lipid bilayers are key components of cell membranes, nuclear membranes and other membrane structures in the cell.

By carefully modifying lipid combination and the process of bilayer formation, we drive these phospholipids into liposomes as well as into more complex structures. Each of these structures has unique drug release properties and our ability to control the formulation enables us to tailor the PK of each product candidate to specific clinical needs.

Unlike other extended release formulations, BioSeizer™ formulations are not implants or large-size particles. Rather, BioSeizer™ formulations allow local injections into sensitive tissues such as the eye or inflamed joints using much smaller gauge needles, an advantage that we believe will be welcomed by both patients and clinicians. In contrast to processes used for many other injectable products, our manufacturing process uses sterile filtration at near-end stage, rather than an entirely aseptic process from raw material to final product.
