Lyndra Therapeutics Takes on Opioid Use Disorder with Long-Acting Oral Dosage Form
Lyndra Therapeutics is making daily pills a thing of the past. Instead of trying to change the patient to improve adherence, Lyndra is changing the pill. The impact of medication adherence is a $289 million alone in the U.S. With Lyndra’s oral, ultra-long-acting, sustained-release therapies, instead of taking medications daily or more frequently, patients could take medication weekly, or even monthly.
Our near-term focus is on addressing unmet need where compliance is a documented issue and weekly or monthly doses would improve medication adherence and health outcomes. Lyndra’s current pipeline includes therapies for Alzheimer’s disease, HIV, opioid use disorder and schizophrenia.
Changing the pill, not the patient
Our Team has developed the first ultra-long-acting pill that lasts a week or longer and can provide a wide range of medicines in a familiar oral capsule form. Once inside the stomach, the capsule delivers steady amounts of medicine for seven days or more. The video below provides an overview of the weekly experience.
