We are committed to serving patients by developing innovative oral biologic medicines that have the potential to improve upon the efficacy, safety, and tolerability of biologic therapeutics in addition to providing them in the form of a convenient pill.
While biologics have revolutionized patient care for chronic conditions, they must be administered through inconvenient injections or intravenous infusions and often affect quality of life. Furthermore, systemically administered therapeutics are distributed broadly and unnecessarily affect multiple tissues in the body, not just the target tissue and organ; our GI-selective oral biologics are designed to address these issues.
We are highly focused on developing products for diseases with significant unmet medical need.
Ulcerative colitis is a disease that causes inflammation and ulcers in the lining of the rectum and colon. It is one of a group of diseases called inflammatory bowel disease. UC usually starts between the ages of 15 and 30. The most common symptoms are pain in the abdomen and blood in diarrhea and other symptoms include anemia, severe tiredness, weight loss, loss of appetite, bleeding from the rectum, sores on the skin, and joint pain. Several types of drugs may help control UC, but there is still a need for better therapies to keep the disease in remission and improve patient outcomes.

Pouchitis is inflammation that occurs in the lining of a pouch created during surgery to treat ulcerative colitis or certain other diseases. Many people with ulcerative colitis need to have their diseased colon removed and the bowel reconnected with a procedure called ileoanal anastomosis (J-pouch) surgery. In J-pouch surgery, surgeons use the end of the small intestine (ileum) to create a pouch shaped like the letter J that holds waste before it’s eliminated. Pouchitis can develop in 25-50% of the patients who have the procedure. It can be acute or chronic and is currently treated with antibiotics.

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune disease, which means your immune system attacks your body’s own tissues. It causes pain, swelling, stiffness, and loss of function in your joints. It can affect any joint but is common in the wrist and fingers. RA can affect body parts besides joints, such as your eyes, mouth, and lungs. Treatments include drugs, lifestyle changes, and surgery. These can slow or stop joint damage and reduce pain and swelling, but additional therapies are needed.
