Silo Pharma Takes Next Step in Bringing Homing Peptide Tech to $30+ Billion RA Market


Rheumatoid arthritis, or RA, is an autoimmune and inflammatory disease that causes painful swelling in joints in the hands, wrists, and knees. While medications can slow the disease and prevent joint deformity, there is no cure for the condition, and many millions still suffer from it. Silo Pharma Inc. (OTCQB: SILO) is a development-stage biopharmaceutical company leveraging homing peptides to improve cellular targeting. In RA, the company hopes to deliver dexamethasone via peptide-guided liposomes to enhance its efficacy and toxicity profile. Let’s take a look at the company’s recent move toward commercialization, as well as how its underlying technology could pave the way for expansion into other markets. Moving Toward Commercialization Silo Pharma extended its exclusive option agreement with the University of Maryland-Baltimore earlier this month to explore a novel intervention, generally known as “joint-homing peptides for use in the investigation and treatment of arthritogenic processes,” which has shown a lot of promise in early-stage research in targeting specific cells. The company subsequently entered into a Scientific Research Agreement with the university to evaluate the pharmacokinetics of dexamethasone delivered to arthritic rats via its peptide-guided liposomes. By selecting an FDA-approved drug, the researchers can focus on delivering the maximum possible dose to specific areas.
