About Vivani Medical, Inc.
Leveraging its proprietary NanoPortal platform, Vivani Medical develops biopharmaceutical implants designed to deliver drug molecules steadily over extended periods of time, with the goal of guaranteeing patient adherence and potentially improving tolerability to their medication. Vivani’s lead program, NPM-119, is a miniature, 6-month GLP-1 implant under investigation for the treatment of patients with Type 2 diabetes and/or obesity. NPM-119 can provide patients the opportunity to realize the full potential benefit of their medication while avoiding the hassles associated with the daily or weekly administration of oral and injectable products. Medication non-adherence occurs when patients do not take their medication as prescribed. This affects an alarming number of patients, approximately 50%, including those taking daily pills. Medication non-adherence and poor tolerability are main reasons why Type 2 diabetes and/or obesity treatments face challenges in achieving optimal real-world effectiveness.
Vivani represents the August 2022 merger of Second Sight Medical Products, Inc., and Nano Precision Medical, Inc. NPM-119 (GLP-1 implant) remains the top priority for the combined company and an Investigational New Drug application remains on track for filing with the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2023 to support initiation of a Phase 2 clinical study called LIBERATE-1. Vivani is also developing a portfolio of innovative, highly differentiated, new drug products leveraging its proprietary NanoPortal implant technology, which has potential application across a broad range of compounds including peptide therapeutics.
