Freedom From Daily Pills

Imagine taking a week’s worth of medicine in a single pill, once a week. Four pills a month. Eventually, one pill a month. This is what Lyndra aims to achieve with its LYNX™ drug delivery platform.

CHANGING THE PILL, NOT THE PATIENT

Providing the medicines patients want in a long-acting oral pill

Expecting perfect adherence to daily medication is simply unrealistic. Almost everyone struggles to remember their daily pills sometimes, even individuals with the best intentions to take their medications exactly as prescribed. The LYNX™ drug delivery platform promises to transform the patient experience, freeing people from the burden of daily pills and simplifying their lives.

Research shows that nearly 90% of patients and caregivers prefer oral pills over any other drug delivery method including injectables. Additionally, although they’d never heard of the concept before, 80% of patients and caregivers find an oral weekly pill appealing.14

That is why Lyndra is focused on changing the pill, not the patient.

Commitment to Patients

"The Swedish word “lindra” means to 'relieve, soothe or ease.' And that’s exactly what we at Lyndra are trying to do – to relieve suffering by making it easier for people to take their medications… What makes Lyndra such a great company is that everyone is so committed to improving patient care. I know that what I do today is an incremental step toward potentially changing the lives of people everywhere. It could be someone who lives down the street from me, or someone who lives a world away, or a family member, or me!"

Who Lyndra Helps

People living with schizophrenia

Schizophrenia is a serious mental health condition that affects how a person thinks, feels and behaves. A stable and fulfilling life for someone living with schizophrenia is possible with the correct treatment and support. However, while initial diagnosis and treatment for schizophrenia is high, it is estimated that only 60% of diagnosed US adults receive consistent and appropriate care year-over-year.15 For patients taking risperidone, weekly dosing (vs. daily dosing) has the potential to increase medication adherence, prevent relapses and improve outcomes.

People living with bipolar 1 disorder

According to the National Institutes of Mental Health, bipolar 1 disorder is a mental health condition that causes unusual shifts in mood, energy, activity levels, concentration and the ability to carry out day-to-day tasks with manic episodes that last at least 7 days, or by manic symptoms that are so severe that the person needs immediate hospital care. Although the symptoms may vary over time, bipolar 1 disorder usually requires lifelong treatment.16 Following a prescribed treatment plan can help people manage their symptoms and improve their quality of life. Lyndra believes that, for patients taking risperidone, weekly dosing (vs. daily dosing) has the potential to increase medication adherence, prevent relapses and improve outcomes.
