Therapeutic Areas

We believe that there is enormous potential in the application of nitric oxide to treat unmet health needs across a number of therapeutic areas:

  • Dermatology
  • Infectious Disease
  • Men’s and Women’s Health
  • Gastroenterology
  • Companion Animal Health

Dermatology
Our targeted technology with anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory properties has the potential to address a number of skin diseases with unmet needs. We recognized a lack of innovation in the dermatology space where patients still want novel topical therapies as alternatives to conventional antibiotics, steroids, biologics, or in-office procedures.

Infectious Disease
Nitric oxide has naturally occurring antiviral and immunomodulatory effects. It is believed that nitric oxide may inhibit viral replication through formation of reactive intermediates that can alter viral proteins or host cell function required for infection to persist.

Men’s and Women’s Health
Antiviral properties of nitric oxide are well characterized in the literature. Researchers have demonstrated nitric oxide’s ability to inhibit viral replication of human papillomavirus (HPV) which if left untreated, high-risk strains can progress to certain cancers. Nitric oxide therapy can be used as an additional line of treatment to complement preventative vaccines.

Gastroenterology
There is a natural relationship between nitric oxide and the gut. Numerous gastrointestinal diseases result from undesired inflammation and/or an imbalance in the gut microbiome. We believe there is an opportunity with our nitric oxide technology to develop safe, well-tolerated product candidates that could be used in combination with or as an alternative to conventional therapies for some GI diseases.

Companion Animal Health
Like in human, nitric oxide plays an important role in the health of animals. Our targeted technology with anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory properties has the potential to address a number of diseases with unmet needs including the treatment of some antibiotic resistant infections.
