Our drug candidates are locally applied treatments for common bladder disorders. Our most advanced product, LP-08, targets interstitial cystitis—a painful, chronic inflammation of the bladder that afflicts an estimated 3.3M to 7.9M Americans.

By limiting drug distribution to the bladder, our products minimize the risk of the adverse effects that accompany traditional therapies.
Working with well-known active agents, they significantly boost the potential for therapeutic efficacy.
