CYCLICA

https://www.cyclicarx.com/

Cyclica’s Ligand Express™ platform has been used and validated through third-party organizations to develop safer and more efficacious therapeutics. Whether hypothetical, pre-clinical, clinical, or FDA-approved, Cyclica offers insight and analysis into a small molecule’s effect, in order to augment drug discovery pipelines and efficiently take assets from bench-to-bedside. Ligand Express™ is unique in that it is a drug-centric platform. It currently features PROBEx (proteome-docking), SWITCHx (ligand effect prediction) & DIVEx (systems biology & drug-protein interactomes), and evaluates and compares small molecules to predict how each will interact with the human body (i.e human proteome). As such, Ligand Express™ provides value in finding novel desirable or undesirable targets, which provides clients with polypharmacological profiles that may identify unknown targets, prioritize lead candidates, elucidate adverse effects and point to repurposing opportunities. In addition, Cyclica’s proprietary database of structurally-characterized bacterial and viral proteomes can be used to identify new treatments for infectious diseases.

Qidni Labs

https://www.qidni.com/

Over two million patients around the world suffer from End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD). Patients’ survival depends on dialysis, a renal replacement therapy that they undergo until they receive a kidney transplant. The survival rate of patients under dialysis is less than 40% in 5 years.

A year of dialysis of each patient may cost $82,000 in the United States. Patients endure a lot more hardships due to complications and lifestyle restrictions. Studies show that longer treatment times can potentially be associated with prolonged survival.

Qidni Labs is on an implantable renal replacement therapy. This device would reduce several costs associated with dialysis equipment, caregivers and insurance providers. Qidni Labs is creating an opportunity for patients to have access to renal replacement therapy continuously and at all times.
