Profile

Cagen Ltd

Cagen has developed self-assembling protein nanocages which can be used to carry drugs within the body.

These nanocages can protect payloads from premature degradation or excess toxicity until they reach the target site. They can also improve the bioavailability of molecules, enabling access to novel therapeutic approaches. By controlling drug release, protein nanocages could improve the safety and toxicity profiles of compounds that have previously failed development, allowing companies to revisit these candidates.
