Castor, President and CEO, Aphios Corporation. ‘We are developing novel formulations of APH-0703 based on Aphios’ proprietary hydrophobic-based formulation and patented SFS-PNS polymer nanospheres technologies. After formulation selection, Aphios will manufacture and characterize the API and final drug item following cGMP guidelines, and conduct preclinical studies in preparation of submitting an IND with the FDA to conduct human scientific trials.
