Our Mission: Pioneering Transformative Therapies
When we take medicine, we expect the medicine to cure us or at least provide a long-lasting benefit without adverse events. Most drugs for complex diseases – cancer, drug-resistant infections, neurodegenerative diseases to name a few – fail to do this. We are often told that highly targeted therapies are the answers but then you get a disease recurrence because the drug is no longer effective or told that if you want a cure for cancer, be prepared for serious adverse events. We believe these dichotomies are results of reductionist thinking and there is a better way. We just need to think outside the box.
Aveta Biomics embraces radically new thinking in translational medicine that promises the drugs with unprecedented benefit/risk profile. These drugs are both scientifically sophisticated and actually affordable to patients. We get a little help from Mother Nature, who after all, is the best medicinal chemist. From the biological perspective, there is a vast overlap between us humans and other living systems. Key cellular processes are conserved across the species. We have the same nucleic acids, amino acids and conserved proteins, the machinery that runs our cells. Metabolites that other organisms, particularly the plants, produce have human targets. We call them Orthologous Molecular Structure (OMS). Our bodies have “seen” these molecules before. These molecules have evolved over millions of years to figure out how best to mend the dysfunctional biological processes and they get the right to work when deployed as drugs and do so much more safely than the synthetic drugs.
