CRISM Therapeutics

CRISM Therapeutics uses hot melt extrusion, injection moulding and 3D printing to improve the clinical performance of active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs), through solubility enhancement, local drug delivery and personalised medicines. In collaboration with the University of Birmingham CRISM has developed ChemoSeed® a platform implantable drug delivery technology that improves the clinical performance of APIs used in cancer treatment by delivering them directly to their required site of action. The Company's first product is for the treatment of high grade glioma (brain tumour). CRISM Therapeutics is also responsible for the commercialisation of ChemoSeed, an implantable device designed to be implanted at the surgical margin of a brain tumour, improving the delivery of chemotherapy to the tumour margin while reducing systemic toxicities. This approach will improve the efficacy of brain tumour treatment, while reducing the onerous side effects on patients.


An implantable biodegradable drug delivery technology designed for the sustained delivery of chemotherapy directly into cancer tissue, improving clinical performance by directly treating disease, particularly when targeting hard-to-treat tumours.
