Why Bexson Biomedical Hacked Ketamine for Pain Management
In September, the company won patent protection for its SeValent novel formulation technology that would enable at-home therapy with a wearable device instead of in-hospital IV delivery. The on-body delivery system, developed jointly with Stevanato Group, includes a prefilled sterilized subcutaneous pump. While Bexson is first exploring ketamine, the system could be used with numerous drug types, including antibiotics, psychedelics and new chemical entities with poor oral bioavailability.
Bexson Biomedical Granted USPTO Patent Allowance on Proprietary Formulation Technology, SeVALENT™
Bexson’s formulation platform, branded as SeVALENT™, is the basis for the Company’s lead ketamine therapy, BB106. The Company believes this patent allowance expands the potential utility of its formulation technology, SeVALENT™, to other small molecules. SeVALENT™ is designed to enable intravenous (IV)-only therapies to now be delivered subcutaneously in a controlled manner for use in the home setting.
This Wearable Ketamine Device Could Be The Future Of Pain Management
Currently in the middle of a $4 million Series A funding round, Bexson is still in pre-clinical development. The research stage company will start animal testing this year, with plans to launch a phase one clinical trial in 2021. Peterson says if all goes well, Bexson’s wearable ketamine delivery system could be approved by the FDA for post-op pain by 2026.
