EPiC Technology - Beyond the Blood-Brain Barrier
Angiochem’s Engineered Peptide Compound (EPiC) Technology is the proven platform behind a new class of highly innovative and effective pharmaceuticals that address unmet medical needs involving brain diseases and brain-related disorders. Angiochem's EPiC-derived drugs are in development for a broad range of CNS-related disorders and are achieving clinically meaningful outcomes.
Based on proprietary sequences of amino acids, called Angiopeps, which are engineered to specifically target the LRP-1 receptor, the EPiC technology platform is highly versatile with applicability across a range of therapeutic areas.
Until now, the blood-brain barrier has been the rate-limiting factor for the development of effective pharmaceuticals to treat diseases of the brain and central nervous system. > More
