MuGard - Mucoadhesive Liquid Technology (MLT): MuGard is the companys approved product for the management of oral mucositis, a frequent side-effect of cancer therapy for which there is no established treatment. MuGard, a proprietary nanopolymer formulation, has received marketing allowance in the U.S. MuGard has been launched in Germany, Italy, the U.K., Greece, and the Nordic countries by its European commercial partner, SpePharm Holding, B.V. It is working with its partners in Korea and China for marketing.
Products in Development
ProLindac (Polymer Platinate, AP5346) DACH Platinum: The companys primary development candidate for the treatment of cancer is ProLindac, a nanopolymer DACH-platinum prodrug. The company has completed a Phase 2 clinical trial on ProLindac in the EU in patients with recurrent ovarian cancer. It intends to initiate a study of ProLindac combined with Paclitaxel in second line treatment of platinum pretreated advanced ovarian cancer patients.
Thiarabine (4-thio Ara-C): Thiarabine is a next generation nucleoside analog licensed from Southern Research Institute. The company is working with leukemia and lymphoma specialists at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston and intends to initiate additional Phase 2 clinical trials in adult AML, ALL, and other indications.
Drug Delivery Technology Platforms and Technologies
The company's drug delivery technology platforms for use in cancer chemotherapy are Synthetic Polymer Targeted Drug Delivery Technology; Cobalamin-Mediated Oral Delivery Technology; and Cobalamin-Mediated Targeted Delivery Technology.
Synthetic Polymer Targeted Drug Delivery Technology: In collaboration with The School of Pharmacy, University of London, the company has developed a synthetic polymer technology, which utilizes a hydroxypropylmethacrylamide (HPMA) polymer with platinum, designed to exploit enhanced permeability and retention effect (EPR) at tumor sites to selectively accumulate drug and control drug release. This technology is employed in its clinical program, ProLindac.
Cobalamin-Mediated Oral Delivery Technology: Cobalamin is the companys proprietary preclinical nanopolymer oral drug delivery technology based on the natural vitamin B12 oral uptake mechanism. The company is developing a product for the oral delivery of insulin, and has conducted sponsored development of a product for oral delivery of human growth hormone. It is in discussion with various companies regarding the sponsored development of Cobalamin oral drug delivery formulations of proprietary and non-proprietary actives.
Cobalamin-Mediated Targeted Delivery Technology: Cobalamin-mediated cancer targeted delivery is a preclinical technology which makes use of the fact that cell surface receptors for vitamins, such as B12 are often overexpressed by cancer cells. This technology uses nanopolymer constructs to deliver more anti-cancer drug to tumors while protecting normal tissues.
In February 2009, the company acquired MacroChem Corporation, which focuses on developing and commercializing pharmaceutical products using its proprietary drug delivery technologies.

SWOT, which stands for Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats, is an analytical framework that identifies the internal and external factors that are favorable and unfavorable for a company.
Enhanced SWOT Analysis
Enhanced SWOT is a 3×3 grid that arranges strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats into one scheme:
- How to use the strengths to take advantage of the opportunities?
- How to use the strengths to reduce likelihood and impact of the threats?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that obstruct taking advantage of the opportunities?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that can make the threats a reality?
Upon answering these questions a company can develop a project plan to improve its business performance.
PESTEL (also termed as PESTLE) is an ideal tool to strategically analyze what influence different outside factors – political, economic, sociocultural, technological, environmental and legal – exert on a business to later chart its long term targets.
Being part of the external analysis when carrying out a strategic assessment or performing a market study, PESTEL gives an overview of diverse macro-environmental factors that any company should thoughtfully consider. By perceiving these outside environments, businesses can maximally benefit from the opportunities while minimizing the threats to the organization.
Key Factors Examined by PESTEL Analysis:
- Political – What opportunities and pressures are brought by political bodies and what is the degree of public regulations’ impact on the business?
- Economic – What economic policies, trends and structures are expected to affect the organization, what is this influence’s degree?
- Sociological – What cultural and societal aspects will work upon the demand for the business’s products and operations?
- Technological – What impact do the technological aspects, innovations, incentives and barriers have on the organization?
- Environmental – What environmental and ecological facets, both locally and farther afield, are likely to predetermine the business?
- Legal – What laws and legislation will exert influence on the style the business is carried out?
IFE, EFE, IE Matrices
The Internal Factor Evaluation matrix (IFE matrix) is a strategic management tool helping audit or evaluate major weaknesses and strengths in a business’s functional areas. In addition, IFE matrix serves as a basis for identifying and assessing relationships amongst those areas. The IFE matrix is utilised in strategy formulation.
The External Factor Evaluation matrix (EFE matrix) is a tool of strategic management that is typically utilised to assess current market conditions. It is an ideal instrument for visualising and prioritising the threats and opportunities a firm is facing.
The essential difference between the above mentioned matrices lies in the type of factors incorporated in the model; whilst the latter is engaged in internal factors, the former deals exceptionally with external factors – those exposed to social, political, economic, legal, etc. external forces.
Being a continuation of the EFE matrix and IFE matrix models, the Internal External matrix (IE matrix) rests upon an investigation of external and internal business factors integrated into one suggestive model.
Porter Five Forces Analysis
The Porter’s five forces analysis studies the industry of operation and helps the company find new sources of competitive advantage. The analysis surveys an industry through five major questions:
- What composes a threat of substitute products and services?
- Is there a threat of new competitors entering the market?
- What is the intensity of competitive rivalry?
- How big is the bargaining power of buyers?
- How significant is the bargaining power of suppliers?
VRIO stands for Value, Rarity, Imitability, Organization. This analysis helps to evaluate all company’s resources and capabilities and bring them together into one aggregate table that includes:
- Tangible resources
- Intangible resources
- Innovation and Creativity
- Organizational capabilities
The result of the analysis gives a clear picture of company’s competitive and economic implications, answering the questions if the resources mentioned above are:
- Costly to imitate?
- Organized properly?
