Stuart Therapeutics (Stuart) is a clinical stage pharmaceutical company focused on the development of a unique synthetic protein designed to target a previously undruggable target in the human body: helical collagen. The company’s platform technology, called PolyColTM (PolyCol), is a series of synthesized amino acid sequences designed to specifically bind to and repair disease-damaged helical collagen in the extracellular matrix and in membranes. These helical collagen structures play an important role in healthy tissues, including the regulation of inflammation, cell growth and proliferation, among many other processes.
Stuart was founded in 2018 to champion a new approach to the treatment of chronic diseases. Each of our founders has been affected directly or indirectly by chronic eye disease, and we have a passion for the pursuit of new and effective solutions for these indications.
Stuart’s areas of interest are Dry Eye Disease, Glaucoma, Dry Age-Related Macular Degeneration and Myopia.”
