About Antibe Therapeutics Inc.
Antibe Therapeutics Inc. originates, develops and out-licenses patent-protected new pharmaceuticals that are improved versions of existing drugs. These improvements are based on Nobel Prize-winning medical research highlighting the crucial role of gaseous mediators, chemical substances produced in the human body to regulate a range of fundamental cellular processes. The Corporation’s drug design methodologies involve chemically linking an existing off-patent drug (“base drug”) to an Antibe-patented, hydrogen sulfide-releasing molecule. For medical conditions characterized by inflammation, pain or vascular dysfunction, the Corporation’s methodologies can efficiently produce improved versions of a number of existing drugs. Notably, Antibe’s products are themselves fully patent-protectable and may benefit from the predictable toxicity and effectiveness profiles of the base drug.
