Innovative drug delivery platform for the benefit of patients and pharma industry
LIDDS AB (publ) develops efficient drugs for cancer and other diseases based on our unique proprietary NanoZolid® technology. NanoZolid helps solve some of the main problems with the way drugs work in the body and affect the patients’ quality of life. NanoZolid enables controlled, long-term and personalized release of the drug for up to six months. NanoZolid can be combined with traditional small molecules as well as with large biological molecules such as antibodies.
LIDDS (Local Intelligent Drug Delivery System) develops products based on a patented and clinically tested drug delivery technology. The unique properties of the pharmaceutical depot formulation is the basis for LIDDS technology platform for the development of new pharmaceutical products. LIDDS founded by researchers and entrepreneurs at Uppsala University, University of Gothenburg and the life science incubator PULS AB.
LIDDS has developed NanoZolid®, a proprietary technology that helps solve some of the main problems with the way drugs work in the body and affect the patients’ quality of life. NanoZolid retains the efficacy of the original drug compound but reduces the side effects. Frequent dosing and severe side effects can be avoided by delivering effective drugs locally to the disease area.
Based on the NanoZolid® technology, LIDDS has successfully developed a new drug candidate in combination with docetaxel, one of the most commonly used drugs for cytostatic treatment of breast, prostate, head, neck, stomach and lung cancer.
The NanoZolid®-technology works well for drug development in the treatment of diseases where there is a need for local, long-lasting effects and for minimizing side effects from potent drugs that are otherwise given in the form of an injection or tablets.
Immuno-oncology is based on the principle of activating the body’s own immune system to attack cancer cells. However, with systemic immunotherapy the entire body is affected and serious side effects are common.
LIDDS unique proprietary drug carriers can be used to develop new locally acting drugs for a wide range of cancers, such as tumors of the prostate, lung, ovarian, liver, brain, abdominal cavity, spine, head / neck, bone, uterus, kidney and bladder . Moreover, new treatments are developed to other intractable diseases that currently require systemic therapy to achieve high local drug concentrations. LIDDS has a unique and patented technology for local drug delivery that creates several advantages.
LIDDS develops effective pharmaceutical products for cancer and other diseases with the patented NanoZolid® technology. NanoZolid releases the medication locally and effectively which means significantly fewer side effects compared with systemic treatment allowing a controlled, sustained and customized release of medication for up to six months.
