Boonton, NJ – June 2, 2020 – Enteris BioPharma, Inc., a biotechnology company developing innovative drug products built around its proprietary delivery technologies and a wholly-owned subsidiary of SWK Holdings Corporation (Nasdaq: SWKH), announced that the company is participating in the BIO International Digital Convention (BIO Digital) being held virtually from June 8-12, 2020.
During the conference, Enteris will be meeting with pharmaceutical executives to explore opportunities involving Peptelligence®, the company’s novel formulation technology that enables oral delivery of molecules that are typically injected, including peptides and BCS class II, III and IV small molecules. Enteris continues to advance internal and external programs that leverage Peptelligence, some of which are in late stage clinical development.
“Peptelligence is a potential game changer for drug makers offering an opportunity to reshape therapeutic categories and treatment paradigms,” said Rajiv Khosla, Ph.D., Chief Executive Officer of Enteris. “We view BIO Digital as an important forum to advance our business development initiatives and to meet with pharmaceutical executives who recognize the substantial value in enabling the oral delivery of peptide and small molecule therapeutics.”
Enteris BioPharma, Inc. is a wholly-owned subsidiary of SWK Holdings Corporation (Nasdaq: SWKH) offering innovative formulation solutions utilizing its proprietary drug delivery technology, Peptelligence®. The technology has been the subject of numerous feasibility studies and active development programs, several of which are in late stage clinical development.
