Valitor to Spotlight Innovative Eye-Health Solutions at ARVO Annual Meeting

Valitor, a biotechnology company dedicated to engineering more effective medicines, is proud to announce that two of its abstracts have been accepted for poster presentation at the 2023 ARVO Annual Meeting in New Orleans.

At the conference, attendees will be able to learn about the preclinical data on two of Valitor’s drug candidates: VLTR-557, a long-acting anti-VEGF biologic designed to treat wet age-related macular degeneration, and a single-domain anti-TNFα antibody developed specifically to treat non-infectious uveitis. We look forward to sharing these important findings with the research community.

About the MVP Technology

Valitor’s Multivalent Polymer (MVP) technology platform, born at U.C. Berkeley, allows for unprecedented control over drug design. By coupling proprietary multi-valent biopolymers with bioactive molecules, Valitor is able to assemble novel macromolecular entities that overcome a range of drug design challenges.

These compounds have been proven to show >1,000-fold increases in potency, up to 10-fold increases in tissue retention, and excellent preclinical safety. With this revolutionary approach, Valitor is revolutionizing the way we think about and design drugs.
