Nano Drug Delivery

Nano Drug Delivery for Cancer, Dermatology, and Pain

They say good things come in small packages. Like Herve Villechaize, the French actor who played Tattoo on Fantasy Island. The idiom also applies to drugs. No, we’re not talking about the little envelope that Nick at work slips you in the breakroom every other Friday. This is about nano drug delivery – using nanoparticles […]

Liquidia Technologies’ Stock to be Sold in IPO

If you’re lucky enough to raise funding for your startup, you will then need to contend with new stakeholders that want to see “an exit”.

WTF Happened to Bind Therapeutics?

It’s hard to say just how many publicly traded stocks we’ve covered so far on Nanalyze, but we’d guess that around 40% of our articles involve a publicly traded stock that has some degree of exposure (or claimed exposure) to one or more emerging technologies. If we take out all the over the counter (OTC) […]

Buy Pre-IPO Shares in a Nano Drug Delivery Company

At the CB Insights fintech conference that wrapped up recently, an interesting fellow named Michael Novogratz made the remark that “Great bubbles occur around stories that are going to happen“, and we thought that would pretty appropriately describe the little hype bubble that took place around 2004 for nanotechnology. We had some forums at that […]

A Nanotechnology IPO From Selecta Biosciences

Nanotechnology was all the rage back in 2004 when George Dubya Bush signed the Nanotechnology Research and Development Act and investors caught wind of a potential opportunity.

A Nano Drug Delivery IPO from Cerulean Pharma

In a previous article, we discussed Bind Therapeutics (NASDAQ:BIND), a company developing a nano-drug delivery technology for Docetaxel, one of the most commonly used cancer chemotherapy drugs approved for breast cancer, head and neck cancer, and gastric cancer.

RNA Interference (RNAi) is a new approach in the development of specific targeted therapies against both rare diseases and cancer. Historically, the pharmaceutical industry has developed two fundamental classes of drugs that can address well-defined targets: small molecules and antibodies.
