Imugene Company Profile

07:32 EDT 22nd September 2018 | BioPortfolio

Imugene’s goal is to improve the efficacy and safety of a diverse number of existing prescription and over the counter medicines both locally and globally. Each new drug formulation being developed by Imugene addresses an unmet market need and uses well characterised molecules that have known and proven regulatory routes.

Imugene aims to develop and license a Vitamin D formulation using its platform technology Linguet™. Generic pharmaceutical products focusing on Parkinson’s Disease and over-the-counter pain relief markets are planned for later in 2014.

Imugene’s focus is on pushing early revenue generating products, rather than a classic drug delivery model that focuses on a single opportunity licensing deal far into the future. We are targeting pharmaceutical products that do not need significant clinical investment to gain regulatory approval. This ensures the most cost effective and most rapid path to market.

Linguet is targeted at those drugs which:

  • Show poor oral bioavailability (e.g. progesterone, testosterone)
  • Require rapid onset of action (e.g. analgesics, erectile dysfunction, acute seizure products)
  • Cause gastrointestinal irritation (e.g. NSAIDs, bisphosphonates & statins)
  • Are degraded in the gastrointestinal tract and require dose compensation (e.g. hormone replacement formulations)
  • Are adversely affected by high first-pass metabolism in the liver (a drug metabolism process where the drug is significantly reduced before it reaches the bloodstream) and thus rely on massive over dosing in order to deliver the correct therapeutic outcome (e.g. pain relief)

While the Linguet™ technology has potentially broad applications, Imugene has selected four priority targets initially:

  • Vitamin D
  • Parkinson’s Disease
  • Pain (NSAID)
  • Osteoporosis
