About us

Megimmuno Swiss Pharmaceutical Technologies SA is focused on the development and commercialisation of innovative immunomodulators for treatment of a broad range of diseases caused by immune imbalance.

 

Founded in Switzerland and based in Canton de Vaud, Megimmuno is operating as biopharmaceutical company, striving to achieve our goal of commercialising of IM-1 in order to make breakthrough in the world immunological treatment.

 

Worldwide there is huge unmet need and increasing demand for effective and non-toxic immune modulators. Our Team aims to commercialise and bring its proprietary immune system modulator to the market in order to improve the quality of live and to extend life expectancy of patients worlwide.

Advisory board

 

Megimmuno advisory board provides guidance for our company, evaluating the most promising lines of studies and most suitable fields of market applications of our outstanding compounds in the field of immune modulation and correction. Their input ensures that R&D studies are allocated to most promising immunotherapy directions in relevant market segments and will likely lead to successful commercialisation.

Business strategy

 

In order to reduce cost and timing of project commercialization process we made the decision to bring IM-1 to the market for new technologies for veterinary medicines and animal health products (instead of human pharmaceutical market). 

 

The animal drugs sector is estimated to represent a global market of $22 billion and  expected to grow at 5.7% compound annual growth, faster than the market for human medicines. While it is smaller than the human drugs market, there is also a much lower cost of entry, allowing drugs to be developed and brought to market faster, cheaper and with higher margins than those enjoyed by Big Pharma.

Partnership

 

We are interested in collaborating with Institutes and authorized private laboratories in order to proceed with GLP studies and certification procedures as the final step before project commercialization. 

 

We plan to proceed preclinical GLP drug studies in authorised European laboratories, including specific trials on models in order to prove all the advantageus properties of IM-1.
