CAMBRIDGE, Mass., May 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Portal Instruments, a clinical stage medical device start-up company announced
"The publication of our study results in a peer-reviewed article marks an important milestone for the company," said Patrick Anquetil, PhD, MBA, CEO of Portal Instruments. "These initial findings provide us with the confidence to move forward with additional research to advance drug delivery with a needle-free system that may potentially lead to improved patient satisfaction, improved adherence to treatment regimens, and a possible reduction of anxiety among patients requiring frequent or ongoing injections."
"The Portal device has the potential to be a safe and less painful method of administering subcutaneous injections. The ultimate goal of the Portal technology is to provide a better overall drug delivery experience for patients, which we believe this study represents the first step towards achieving that goal," said Nik Kojic, MD, PhD, VP of Clinical Development for Portal Instruments.
The Portal drug delivery technology is needle-free, fast and computer-controlled. It automatically adjusts the injection velocity up to one thousand times in the half-second it takes to completely deliver a 1 ml dose. The result is the precise administration of high viscosity biologic drugs through the skin, via a finely collimated jet. HIPPA-compliant, automatic collection and transfer of injection and health data sets a new standard of engagement between the care team and the patient. With a clear view of patient behavior, protocols can be better managed, research better informed and compliance improved.
