Symic is a clinical-stage biotherapeutics company developing multiple compounds that target and affect the extracellular matrix (ECM), the non-cellular component of tissues that is critical for healthy tissue function. Components of the ECM, particularly proteoglycans, which are important structural and functional macromolecules native to the ECM, play a critical role in healing following injury and in chronic diseases. Symic's proprietary compounds function like proteoglycans, and have been designed to promote healing and repair in a variety of disease states. Symic's lead compound, SB-030, is currently under evaluation in the Phase 1/2 SHIELD clinical trial for vascular endothelial injury. In addition, Symic's osteoarthritis drug candidate, SB-061, is poised to enter the clinic in the next few months.
Symic is based in San Francisco. For additional information, please visit the company's website at http://www.symic.bio or follow us on Twitter at www.twitter.com/symicbio and LinkedIn at www.linkedin.com/company/symic-bio/.
