"Protagonist's orally stable peptides represent a game-changing approach that especially enables the development of orally administered NCEs (new chemical entities) for inflammatory bowel diseases and other gastro-intestinal disorders," said Alexander Shuster, Ph.D., President of Inbio Ventures, a management company representing Pharmstandard International. "We were impressed by the company's technology, partnerships, development achievements to date, and the management team."
