SPU-21 has shown Anti-arthritic activity for therapeutic use in preclinical studies.
ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., April 20, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Silo Pharma, Inc . (OTCQB: SILO), a development-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on the use of psychedelics as a therapeutic, today announces that it has produced its first batch of Liposomes for use in a preclinical study that will be conducted by Frontage Laboratories, a CRO (contract research organization).
Eric Weisblum, CEO of Silo Pharma stated, “The production and delivery of liposomes for our upcoming study with Frontage advances SPU-21 and allows us to further study anti-arthritic activity in animals. We look forward to sharing the results of the study upon completion and data collection.”
The ability of the SPU-21 to target inflamed epithelium suggest they could be used to target drug delivery. Silo’s novel joint homing peptides can be used to treat autoimmune diseases, including but not limited to Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA). This approach could enhance the therapeutic effect of current and future therapies and decrease potential toxicity despite systemic administration of the drug. SPU-21 has potential for the development of fusion imaging molecules and/or nanoparticles to study arthritic pathogenesis.
