About Matinas BioPharma

Matinas BioPharma is a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company focused on the development of its lead product candidate, MAT9001, for the treatment of cardiovascular and metabolic conditions, and the advancement of its proprietary lipid nano-crystal (“LNC”) platform technology for the safe delivery of therapies previously limited by toxicity or bioavailability issues.

MAT9001 is a prescription-only omega-3 fatty acid-based formulation, comprised primarily of EPA and DPA, under development for the treatment of hypertriglyceridemia. With the support of a world-class team of clinical key opinion leaders and regulatory consultants, MAT9001 is moving rapidly forward along a streamlined registration pathway.

In parallel, the Company's LNC Platform is a unique potential solution for complex challenges arising in the delivery of both small molecules and biologics. This novel technology allows for the delivery of life-saving compounds in ways that can make them more tolerable, less toxic, potentially more effective, and even orally bioavailable. The most advanced compound using the LNC platform is MAT2203 – an orally-delivered formulation of Amphotericin-B that has the potential to substantially improve an otherwise challenging safety profile in critically ill patients.
