Universal Drug Delivery System (UDDS)
Universal Drug Delivery System (UDDS) is a proprietary smart drug delivery system developed by one of ORB Incubator's start-up companies, Panaomics. UDDS is an entirely new nano-material based drug delivery system that is capable of transporting any drug that is currently available on the market to anywhere in the body. This alone is expected to have substantial impact to almost any field of medicine. However, its true merit as a unique system comes from the fact that the drug delivery is: highly targeted, extremely long-lasting and fully trackable.
Its highly targeted nature will allow the drugs to actively seek out target cells (such as cancer cells) and surgically delivers the drugs to any location where it is required. This will address one of the long-standing challenges of drug therapy where many of the highly effective drugs are toxic to healthy cells and will cause harm as collateral damage (side- effects). Therefore, by programming the drug carriers to target specific cells one could drastically reduce the said side-effects.
