About N4 Pharma
N4 Pharma is a specialist pharmaceutical company developing a novel delivery system for vaccines and cancer treatments using its unique silica nanoparticle delivery system called Nuvec®
Nuvec® has shown to be capable of loading and delivering mRNA and pDNA into cells to the required level needed to generate an immune response. Further work will be undertaken for the direct loading and delivery of peptides and proteins using Nuvec®.
N4 Pharma's business model is to partner with companies developing novel antigens for vaccines and cancer treatments to use Nuvec® as the delivery vehicle to get their antigen into cells to express the protein needed for the required immune response. As these products progress through pre clinical and clinical programs N4 will receive up front and milestone payments and ultimately royalty payments once products reach the market.
