About Protein Polymer Technologies Inc.
Protein Polymer Technologies, Inc., a biotechnology company, engages in the research, development, and production of bio-active devices to improve medical and surgical outcomes. Through its patented technology to produce proteins of unique design, biological, and physical product components are integrated to provide for optimized clinical performance.
The products that the company has targeted for development are based on a generation of biomaterials which have been designed to be recognized and accepted by human cells to aid in the natural process of bodily repair, (including the healing of tissue and the restoration or augmentation of its form and function) and to promote the regeneration of tissues.
The company, through its proprietary technology, produces high molecular weight polymers that could be processed into various material forms, such as gels, sponges, films, and fibers, with their physical strength and rate of resorption tailored to each potential product application. These polymers are constructed of the same amino acids as natural proteins found in the body.
Fundamental Protein Polymers
The companys primary products under development are based on protein polymers combining selected properties from two of the structural proteins found in nature: silk and elastin. The company also has created protein polymers based on repeating blocks of amino acids found in two other classes of structural proteins found in nature: collagen and keratin. The company focuses internally on developing protein polymers that are useful in products for: tissue augmentation, tissue adhesives and sealants, and drug delivery devices.
The companys internal product development efforts are targeted toward various markets based on a common biomaterials platform. These include: injectable disc nucleus for the treatment of injured or degenerated spinal discs, strong and fast-setting, resorbable surgical sealants for use in general and cardiovascular procedures following primary wound closure, adhesion barriers, and scaffolds for wound healing and tissue engineering. Other markets of interest include those for drug delivery devices.
Product Candidates and Markets
The companys protein polymer technology and materials have the potential to create products useful in various medical markets.
Surgical Tissue Sealants (STS): The company has developed surgical adhesives and sealants that are for the surgeon to use, and that combine the biocompatibility of fibrin glues (without the risks associated with use of blood-derived products) with the fast setting times of cyanoacrylates. A non-resorbable adhesive or sealant could only be used where the damaged tissues are not going to grow together. The company has demonstrated both the adhesive performance and the biocompatibility of its product formulations in preclinical studies, including resorption of the adhesive matrix in conjunction with the progression of wound healing.
Wound Healing & Tissue Regeneration: The market for wound care products is segmented, involving various different approaches to wound care. Products marketed and being developed by other parties includes fabric dressings (such as gauze), synthetic materials (such as polyurethane films), and biological materials (such as growth factors and living tissue skin graft substitutes).
The company has developed protein polymers that might be useful in the treatment of dermal wounds, particularly chronic wounds, such as decubitous ulcers, where both reconstruction of the extracellular matrix (ECM) and re-establishment of its function are desired. These polymers, based on key ECM protein sequence blocks, are biocompatible, fully resorbable and have been processed into gels, sponges, films, and fibrous sheets. Additionally, such materials might serve as scaffolds for the ex vivo production of living tissue substitutes.
Urethral Bulking Agent (UBA) - Polymer 47K: UBA relieves female stress incontinence by injecting liquid that rapidly changes to long-lasting solid bulk to the tissue surrounding the urethra. The companys UBA injection procedure, an alternative to surgery, most often requires only one treatment. The UBA gel is resistant to migration. A human clinical feasibility study has been completed.
Collaborative and License Agreements

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?
