Vinnova, together with Swelife and Medtech4health, have jointly called for new innovative projects within life science and medical technology. The goal is to promote sustainability and innovation, generating value-creating healthcare and increasing growth in the Swedish life science sector. A consortium, led by TIRmed Pharma, have successfully been approved a grant of up to 1.5 MSEK in this programme.
TIRmed Pharma, together with Research Institutes of Sweden (RISE) and supported by the patient association Atopikerna (a part of Astma- och Allergiförbundet), have developed a project to drive the development of TIRmed Pharma’s new topical treatment for Atopic Dermatitis; TIR-C.
The consortium’s primary objective is to bring TIR-C to pre-clinical trials; a key milestone on the greater path towards bringing it to market. Three main outcomes of the project will support this: Statistically relevant indication of efficacy in dogs, established bioanalytical methods and key insights from patients suffering from Atopic Dermatitis. Combined, these potential results will set a strong foundation for TIR-C's future.
