Regenerative Medicineto reverse bone-loss
Bone targeting platform to treat rare bone-diseases
Mesentech developed a novel drug conjugate that can deliver medicines selectively to the bone. Our first drug candidate, C3, reverses bone loss.
Stepping Stones to The Futureof Bone Regeneration
Healthy bone architecture(100x)
Mesentech's bone anabolic drug conjugates will be incrementally developed as a treatment for renal osteodystrophy, osteogenesis imperfecta, and Duchenne associated osteoporosis.
A topical formulation is being developed as a bone graft material to speed osseointegration in orthopedic and oral-maxillofacial indications while avoiding the cost and morbidity associated with harvesting self-donor material for autografts.
