Company Summary

Company focused on the treatment of diseases within the (1) oncology, (2) autoimmune, (3) hemophilia, and (4) lysosomal storage spaces. Protein-based drugs hold promise for treating many diseases, however the body’s immune system often pegs the proteins as "foreign" and attacks them. To address this problem, ITI uses lipid-based nanoparticles that “teach” the immune system to tolerate protein therapeutics, avoiding treatment complications.
