Keystone Nano has an exclusive license to Penn State patented technology that allows the creation of stable, non-toxic, 5 to 50 nm-composite particles that they call Molecular Dots (MDs). These Molecular Dots can encapsulate drugs and/or fluorescent molecules.
Makefield Therapeutics has licensed Intellectual Property covering a novel platform technology from Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University for the generation of powders comprised of hydrogel/glassy matrix (hybrid) nanoparticles that in a first application are delivering controlled and sustained therapeutic levels of gaseous nitric oxide
Nanocopoeia is a therapeutic particle engineering company providing nano-enabled particle design, services, and equipment to the pharmaceutical industry. Their patented ElectroNanospray™ (ENS) process is used to produce homogeneous nanoparticles in a unique one-step continuous process. They have the ability to engineer multicomponent particles. ENS is a non-destructive process operating at ambient temperature and pressure. The modular equipment design allows for easy entry at R&D scale moving to pilot and full scale production.
NanoMedical Systems (NMS) is a startup company, which will commercialize the patented research of Dr. Mauro Ferrari at the University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston, a sponsored research site and a source of licensed IP for NMS. The company's Personalized Molecular Drug-delivery System (PMDS) is a small drug delivery device that is implanted subcutaneously (just under the skin) for slow and consistent release of a therapeutic agent over many weeks or months. A nanochannel delivery system (nDS) embodied on a silicon chip regulates the flow of therapeutic molecules.
NanoStar Health aims to become a global leader in the emerging technology arena of nanomedical devices specifically designed for premature infants. The Company began operations in March 2009 and was incorporated in May 2009 to capitalize on the founder's expertise in nanotechnology, neonatal and pediatric medicine, and medical device commercialization.
An early stage therapeutic drug company, NanoVector Inc. is commercializing a patent pending nanoparticle drug delivery system developed at North Carolina State University. The NanoVector nanoparticle is a plant virus. Central to our technology, this virus, which has evolved over millions of years, has several inherent characteristics essential for a successful nanoparticle delivery system and superior to any designed and engineered by humans.
PDS Biotechnology Corporation is a biopharmaceutical company applying the company's platform Versamune nanotechnology to a new class of safe, simple, potent and targeted immunotherapies for the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases.
Pioneer Surgical Technology is a leading innovator in the design and manufacture of spinal and orthopaedic implants and instruments. The company's proprietary nanocrystalline hydroxyapatite technology - NanOss™ Bone Void Filler - is the first ever nanotechnology medical device to receive clearance by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). NanOss™ is an innovative structural biomaterial that is highly osteoconductive and remodels over time into human bone with applications in the sports medicine, trauma, spine and general orthopaedics markets.
PolyRemedy, Inc. manufactures robotic systems for the fabrication of nano-material based wound dressings at the point-of-care, allowing wound care clinicians to deliver easily and cost-effectively customized wound care on-demand for each patient's unique wound.
Rexahn and the University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB) Center for Nanomedicine & Cellular Delivery (CNCD), are jointly pursuing the development of water-soluble nano-polymers for targeted delivery of anticancer drugs.
