Paul Snyder, Write2MarketOnce home to a thriving textile industry replete with chemical and mechanical engineers working to improve the soil and machinery converting raw cotton into commercial goods, upstate South Carolina may be on the precipice of its next industrial revolution: medtech.
Born from technology developed at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Greenville-based Zylö Therapeutics is utilizing the regional chemical/mechanical engineering expertise and support network to improve drug and nitric oxide delivery through a proprietary sustained delivery system called Nanopods. Formally founded in late 2017, the company secured exclusive, worldwide rights to the technology and is currently working to solve the chemical and manufacturing issues that will enable scale-up and commercialization.
Here’s how Zylö Therapeutics describes the technology: “The delivery system uses patented hydrogel-derived nanoparticles, called Nanopods, to deliver—in a sustained and controlled manner—notoriously hard-to-deliver therapeutic agents through topical administration. With our system, Zylö has harnessed the powerhouse therapeutic, nitric oxide, as well as other therapeutics that have bioavailability challenges.”
At DeviceTalks Boston, Tyler Shultz will give attendees an inside look at Theranos and how he was able to sound the alarm after he realized the company was falling apart. Shultz will take attendees behind the story that everyone is talking about: the rise and fall of Elizabeth Holmes and her diagnostic company, Theranos.
Join Shultz and 1,000+ medical device professionals at the 8th annual DeviceTalks Boston.
