MxBA Particles on Enterocytes

Tamarisk Technologies Group | MxBA Oral Drug Delivery Particles target enterocytes


MxBA™ Platform

As shown to the left, oral MxBA™ particles target and adhere to all available surface areas on exposed enterocytes. This interaction minimizes exposed drug transfer distances from the delivery particle’s programmed drug elution core to the targeted absorptive enterocytes, thus facilitating maximum drug payload transfer.

Particles lacking MxBA targeting rely on stoichiometric interactions with enterocytes, greatly reducing the number of adhered particles and increased exposed drug transfer distances. The net effect is a poorly performing oral drug delivery platform.

Tamarisk is now focusing it’s research entirely upon oral delivery of proteins (including oral insulin), peptides, cyclic peptides, and monoclonal antibodies.
