Its drug discovery engine is based on the Ferring Research Ltd small molecule R&D unit, which was spun out from Ferring Pharmaceuticals in 2008. Focussed on first-in-class therapies for indications that are under-served by current products, Vantia's R&D group has over 20 years' experience in the development of small molecule modulators targeting hormones and proteases.
The Company owns an extensive drug candidate library, which is driving its clinical and preclinical portfolio, and intellectual property comprising 20 patent families and 21 granted patents.
