... Signs Deals In Drug Delivery And Amines

Department: Business

DSM and Caliber Therapeutics will collaborate on the development of a novel drug delivery balloon catheter that enables the controlled and sustained release of drugs to treat vascular diseases. The partners will combine DSM's Trancerta drug delivery technology, based on resorbable materials, with balloon and catheter technologies from Caliber. Separately, DSM and the French firm LibraGen will codevelop new omega-transaminases for production of chiral amines. LibraGen will discover new enzymes capable of converting ketones into optically pure amines, and DSM will produce them at industrial scale.
