The funding will be based on the successful initial clinical evaluation of the first product from Aptatek to complete clinical studies for its in-home, ground-breaking monitoring platform for phenylketonuria, a rare, chronic, and inherited disorder. Because of the inability of the body to break down the amino acid phenylalanine, dangerous levels can occur if one does not take great care in the management of the condition through diet and medicine—much like diabetes.
