InVenis Biotherapies is a biotech compagny, spin-off from academic laboratory U1172 and Taipei Medical University, developping innovative regenerative therapies based on blood platelet. Thanks to the high therapeutic potential of our product, we target the most severe diseases involving cell death, as the amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.
From platelet concentrates that are not used in transfusion and are therefore condemned to destruction, Invenis Biotherapies applies its patented process to obtain a platelet lysate that is safer, more effective and compatible with the central nervous system (CNS).
The platelet lysate will be delivered directly to the site of interest, so directly into the CNS for ALS
The results of our research are extremely interesting with an effect on survival clearly superior to current treatments or the use of recombinant growth factors.
