Lyndra’s investigational therapies are enabled by the company’s LYNX® drug delivery platform, which creates long-acting oral medicines that can be taken once weekly.

Jessica Ballinger, Lyndra Therapeutics’ President and CEO said, “We appreciate the support our investors are providing as we complete our risperidone phase 3 trials and continue the development of our pipeline of oral weekly therapies through this round of financing, This investment validates the LYNX platform and moves us forward in our plans to bring our lead product candidate, oral weekly risperidone, through the regulatory pathway and to patients.”

As part of the financing, Sun Pharma will receive an exclusive license to manufacture and market oral weekly risperidone (LYN-005), oral weekly dapagliflozin (LYN-045) and oral weekly aripiprazole (LYN-006) in six countries, including Brazil and India, pending further clinical development of these investigational candidates.

Amy Schulman, Lyndra Therapeutics co-founder, former CEO and Executive Chair of the Board said, “This investment will provide Lyndra with the resources and leadership to achieve what we know is possible with the LYNX platform: a transformation of the relationship between people and their medicines, This is an important step toward helping people adhere to their medication regimens and enabling them to better achieve their treatment goals.”

Prior to the development of the LYNX technology, oral pills have been limited to ‘extended release’ formulations, which do not last for more than a day. Lyndra’s LYNX drug delivery platform is enabled by more than 50 patented innovations in design, engineering and materials science to achieve dramatically reduced dosing frequency.
