about us: Our Future is in Sight
BioHealthWays is committed to fight diseases by delivering focused, next-generation therapies.
We envision products that elevate the human condition and improve the comfort of living. Harnessing the possibilities in new biologic and nucleic acid therapies, BioHealthWays precisely controls targeting, timing, and dosing to create sophisticated pharmaceutical products.
Customized Drug Delivery, enabled by polymeric nanotechnology, is a key to drugs with improved safety, efficacy, toxicology, and release profiles.
BioHealthWays is building enhanced drug delivery systems that localize and enable improved protein-based therapies. Our expertise is in biomaterials, polymers, hydrogels, nanotechnology, and surface-property interactions, helping large pharma optimize product attributes to exceed customer, regulatory, and market requirements.
In Focus: Nanotechnology-based drug delivery systems for ocular biologic therapeutics
The following eye diseases are examples of often chronic and require thoughtful treatments with enhanced drug delivery profiles:
- retinal neo-vascular conditions (diabetic and age-related)
- secondary glaucoma
These "top 3" preventable blindness diseases are the cause of over $139B in economic burden to the US economy alone, and over 80 million US patients are at risk of preventable blindness diseases. These same diseases are increasingly treated with biologics, requiring multiple injections due to API instability, causing inconvenience, risks, and noncompliance with treatment regimen.
- Premise: Ocular biologic therapeutics require specialized drug delivery mechanisms to provide effective dosing for longer than ever, in safe, convenient-to-use, and convenient-to-administer forms.
- Insight: BioHealthWays has a implantable drug delivery system designed to achieve sustained release of biologics for >6 months intraocularly.
- Result: Working with partners, BioHealthWays optimizes preclinical pipeline assets to generate competitive product attributes.
We will work with you to create best-in-class therapeutic attributes. Contact us today.

Increasing revenue share of biopharma
Why Biologics Drug Delivery?
Biologics and nucleic-acid based therapies are not only growing in importance in the R&D pipeline, but also capturing an increasing and profitable share of pharmaceutical market revenues. In the coming few years, as value-based pricing is implemented, superior products will maintain competitive pricing advantages.
BioHealthWays technology will align within the 1000's of biologics now in large pharma's R&D pipeline. This represents well over $25 billion dollars of annual investments. To protect and enhance assets in your R&D pipeline, ensure your products have an enhanced drug delivery mechanism from BioHealthWays.

Nanotechnology example: nanomicelles
BioHealthWays' product is rooted in nanotechnology. The clinical application of nanotechnology--such as block copolymer micelles--is rapidly developing. New approaches and opportunities using these and other technologies will create new product applications--spanning biologic and nucleic-acid therapies. Repurposing, biosimilars, cocktail drugs, and related strategic initiatives in the "drug delivery" toolbox are vastly underutilized and could unlock additional value while being efficient with R&D spend.
"The use of nanotechnology is expected to provide pharmaceuticals with improved dissolution, bioavailability, metabolism, clearance, and distribution profiles, which are hoped to reduce unwanted side effects and improve efficacy." US Dep of Health and Human Services, Food and Drug Administration, 2014 - Guidance for Industry: Considering whether an FDA-regulated product involves the application of nanotechnology.
