Orally administered medical device for the safe reduction of blood sugar levels without uptake into the body
The Company’s lead product candidate, SiPore15™, is an orally-administered medical device for the safe reduction of blood sugar levels in people at risk of developing diabetes, prediabetics, and newly diagnosed type 2 diabetics. The device is a tasteless and odourless white powder taken with water. A First in Man clinical trial of SiPore15™ showed significant reductions in a range of metabolic parameters and an excellent safety profile.
SiPore15™ is currently being investigated in a clinical trial called STAR.
How SiPore15 works
SiPore15™ has been developed with optimal safety in mind. Designed to act locally in the gut, the device consists of precisely engineered micron-sized silica particles with tailored porosity. Inside the gut, the particles work as a molecular sieve by mechanically separating digestive enzymes from undigested food, thereby improving metabolic health through a gentle mode of action. The particles pass through the body without being absorbed and are safely eliminated in the same manner as food.
Extensive preclinical studies and clinical development in-house and in collaboration with external research groups clearly demonstrates the safety and performance of SiPore15™.
”SiPore15™ is designed with safety and sustainability in mind. It is made of pure silica, a natural mineral made of silicon and oxygen, two of the earth’s most abundant elements. SiPore15™ derives its function from its unique architecture and chemistry. It is gentle to the human body as to the environment.Dr. Eric JohnstonCTO & Inventor
