Emplicure signs development agreement with Uppsala university regarding biological medicines

2022-04-05 06:30

As part of broadening Emplicure's project and product development, an agreement has been signed with the Department of Materials Science at Uppsala University, Sweden.

The agreement includes advanced materials science characterization of drug formulations developed by Emplicure, as well as collaboration to develop new formulations of biological drugs (biologics).

Medicines have traditionally been manufactured by chemical means, but in recent decades more and more medicines have been manufactured through biological processes. Thanks to this development, there are now new effective treatments for several serious and chronic diseases, such as rheumatism and cancer.

"Using our patented bioceramic platforms with new biological substances and thereby developing innovative biological drugs with specific release profiles will contribute to new and completely unique treatment options for patients. We see great potential in being able to use our bioceramic platforms in biological drugs, with increased patient benefit and more efficient treatment as a result" says CEO Torbjörn W. Larsson, CEO of Emplicure.
