PolyPid is a clinical stage, emerging specialty pharmaceutical company, developing, manufacturing and commercializing products based on a proprietary platform named PLEX™ (Polymer-Lipid Encapsulation matriX), in the field of extended release, local drug delivery. PLEX™ technology optimizes drug therapeutic performance and clinical outcomes, improves pharmacoeconomic potential as well as offers lifecycle extention for novel drugs. This is achieved via PLEX™ based protected drug reservoirs enabling prolonged delivery of drugs, including biologics, over periods ranging from days to several months. The application of PLEX™ technology enables optimized drug treatment regimens by predetermining release rates and durations, a rare combination of attributes.
PolyPid’s lead product, D-PLEX™, is a secure antibiotic drug reservoir that provides a safe and effective local anti-bacterial preventive and eradication treatment at the target site and is designed to be administered during surgical procedures. After surgery the drug reservoir constantly releases the entrapped antibiotic over several weeks, thus allowing prolonged infection management with increased potential to eradicate antibiotic resistant bacteria.
