ABOUT US

pHion Therapeutics is a therapeutic vaccine development company, utilising its patented peptide based drug delivery system, RALA, which when combined with nucleic acids, generates a uniquely potent therapeutic response without provoking an innate immune response.

pHion’s therapeutic vaccine programme is focused on viral infections as it evokes a strong interferon gamma response. We believe that the RALA vaccine technology marks the advent of a new generation of therapeutic vaccines that could clear infectious diseases on a global scale.

In addition to therapeutic vaccines, RALA possesses unique traits that will offer significant value in both oncology (tumour specific delivery) and in ex vivo gene therapy (nanoparticle formulation for AAV manufacture) applications.
