advanceCOR GmbH is a clinical drug developing company based in Martinsried near Munich, Germany, and is focused on novel therapeutics and diagnostics for heart and vascular diseases. advanceCOR´s activities and experiences comprise all steps from research to drug development and commercialization. advanceCOR owns a quite extensive product pipeline:
- A drug to treat acute arterial thrombosis/thromboembolic disease (e. g., myocardial infarction and stroke) showed effects in man ex vivo, and was very well tolerated (Status: clinical phase II in patients with stroke or transient ischemic attack (TIA) is ongoing)
- Antibody-like compounds to trigger the homing of stem cells in vascular lesions („plaques“)
- A compound which impedes the uptake of deleterious lipid complexes (oxidized LDL) into plaques
The product developments are being pursued by advanceCor with all necessary assays (e. g., pharmacokinetics) according to „good laboratory and clinical practice“ (GLP and GCP). The compounds are also being produced in bioreactors at advanceCOR.
All these innovative products were derived from in-house research and development, compounds which had been dismissed by others have not been in-licensed.
