Specific Biologics Inc.'s (SBI) mission is to develop novel gene editing technologies to treat diseases at the genetic level in cells inside the body.  


We are actively developing a platform technology consisting of a dual-cleaving nuclease that can be safely delivered to cells for the treatment of various genetic diseases. This technology is designed to better exploit the cell's naturally occurring DNA repair pathways through enhanced repair or predictable deletions.

Dualase Cuts DNA Differently.

 

Dualase cuts DNA twice and leaves non-compatible DNA ends. 


Other gene editors leave compatible DNA ends when they cut DNA. When a cell repairs compatible ends it leads to random insertions or deletions or a low frequency of repair.

NON-COMPATIBLE DNA ENDS INFLUENCE CELLULAR DNA REPAIR.

  Depending on the presence or absence of template DNA, the cell may introduce defined length deletions (no template) or increase the frequency of repair (with template).    

 Defined Length Deletions & Increased Repair Allow Targeting of Genetic Diseases That Could Not Be Targeted Before. 

Pipeline

Building a pipeline in oncology and rare disease with an initial focus on diseases of the lung.

Licensing

SBI is interested in licensing compelling technologies in the gene editing field that improve nuclease function or delivery to somatic cells. Please contact us below if your technology might be a good fit.

Partnerships & Collaborations
