About Matinas BioPharma
Matinas BioPharma is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on development of its lead product candidate, MAT9001, for the treatment of cardiovascular and metabolic conditions. The Company is actively pursuing the development of MAT9001 with the support of a world-class team of clinical key opinion leaders and regulatory consultants. MAT9001 is a prescription-only omega-3 fatty acid-based composition, comprised primarily of EPA and DPA, under development for hypertriglyceridemia, which has shown superiority versus Vascepa® (icosapent ethyl) in reducing serum triglycerides, total- and non-HDL-cholesterol, apolipoprotein CIII, and PCSK9 levels.
In addition, the Company's proprietary, disruptive lipid nano-crystal (“LNC”) platform technology helps to solve complex challenges relating to the safe and effective delivery of small molecules, gene therapies, proteins, peptides and vaccines, potentially making them safer, more tolerable, less toxic and orally bioavailable.
