AlgiPharma presented at Lipid Nanoparticle Summit in Boston

AlgiPharma attended the LNP Formulation & Process Development conference in Boston, MA (17-19th April). Chief Scientific Officer Dr. Philip Rye presented AlgiPharma’s novel alginate oligosaccharide technology for overcoming inhalation barriers for LNP delivered therapeutics. His presentation highlighted the benefits and challenges associated with the inhalation delivery route, and how AlgiPharma’s technology can mediate the effective translocation of LNP therapeutics across the mucosal barrier.

AlgiPharma’s alginate oligosaccharide technology combined with existing LNP formulations represent a novel way to safely circumvent mucosal barrier challenges and significantly increase efficiency of inhaled LNP therapeutics.
