TI:GER Team: Fox Three Bioscience

 

Fox Three Bioscience is a drug delivery startup company out of Georgia Tech and Emory University. We have developed a platform nanotechnology for the targeted delivery of biologic drugs. By encapsulating currently used biologic drugs in our polymer microcapsule, our technology can lower the side effects of drugs that treat cardiovascular disease, cancer, and bleeding disorders. Currently, we are developing our technology to deliver drugs that stop bleeding in hemophilia A patients, which is a $5.7B orphan disease market. By encapsulating the drug currently used to treat bleeds (recombinant Factor VIII) in our polymer microcapsule, our technology lowers the side effects and drastically increases the efficacy for a specific form of hemophilia A (hemophilia A with inhibitors), which is the most costly and problematic to treat.
