Alma Therapeutic's Capsule
Alma's capsule provides a unique platform for oral delivery of therapeutic proteins and peptides which possess poor oral bioavailability, necessitating administration via injections.
The company’s technology utilizes a microneedles - array approach for advanced oral delivery.
This is a novel needle‐free alternative to injectable drugs that can enhance quality of life for millions of people requiring chronic administration of injectable drugs.
